7 tips for using misfit produce

While imperfect produce might appear wrinkled or misshapen, they are perfectly nutritious. Misfits need not be wasted!

Offering comparable nutrition quality and taste, discounted misfit produce is versatile and can be used in raw or cooked dishes. Just like perfect-looking produce, it’s important to thoroughly wash misfits before eating them.

  1. Add to soups, stocks or stews
  2. Mix in pasta or puree into pasta sauce
  3. Add to rice, noodles or quinoa to make fried rice or stir fry
  4. Bake in frittatas, quiches, omelets and other egg dishes
  5. Blend chopped fruit into baked goods and hot or cold cereals
  6. Mix veggies into casseroles and other favorite side dishes
  7. Blend into smoothies or freeze into popsicles
