A good example is kohlrabi... we didn't know what to do with it but we found a recipe for a kohlrabi slaw that is amazing, and made fries from it. Good stuff. We do the scratch thing too and buy everything we can in bulk. I'd say if your coming in at/around that $600 budget you are doing really well for the high COLA and the way you guys eat

P.S. the other thing we do is buy a ton of extra produce in season and freeze/can/dehydrate like crazy to get us through the off season.
This sounds delicious. Do you have a recipe you would share?
