Deliver Ingredients


  • 1/2 loaf day-old pumpernickel bread
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt


Tear or roughly chop the bread into bite-sized pieces. Toast on a sheet pan until dry and crumbly then allow to cool.

Pulse bread crumbs in food processor for about 20 seconds until they resemble the consistency of dirt.

Drizzle in the olive oil and pulse to the point that the dirt can be packed but is not soggy.

Season to taste then use as a “soil” base for crudités, or sprinkle over pasta or roasted veggies, particularly cauliflower and broccoli

Orange Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Orange Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
