Lemon New Potatoes with Collards

Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, these red potatoes are tossed with bright lemon and umami-rich ‘nooch!


1/4 C olive oil
1 lb. new potatoes (preferably red)
1/2 lb. Ready-Set-Serve Collard Greens, sauteed or stewed until soft
2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, roasted and smashed
1 T nutritional yeast, seaweed-sesame flavor
1 T Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice
1 tsp zest of Markon First Crop Lemons, minced
2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Toss potatoes with olive oil and roast until tender (approximately 20-25 minutes). Once cooked, put all (including extra oil) in a mixing bowl and hand toss with remaining ingredients. Break up larger potatoes with hands if desired.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
