Quick-Pickle Curry Vegetables

Here in California we are in the midst of the best growing season of the year. It’s hard to resist scooping up all the vegetables that are available at our farmer’s markets right now! If you have some extra veggies on hand or want to add some zip to your meals quick-pickling is super easy and a great technique for extending the life of your crunchy produce. We chose cauliflower, carrots and asparagus but you can swap these with whatever you have on hand.

Salad Topper

Turn your basic salad into something amazing with our nutrient rich salad topper. This nut and seed mixture has energizing healthy fats, including Omega 3s from hemp seeds, as well as a bounty of minerals to keep your body running strong throughout the day. We call this a salad topper, but encourage you to think bigger: avocado toast topper, mix into your favorite grain or just eat as a snack. The versatility of this mix makes it one of our kitchen’s pantry staples.

Cumin Lime Smashed Sweet Potatoes

Brighten up your table with our fresh take on sweet potatoes. We like the skin on for extra fiber and the cumin and lime are a refreshing addition to this otherwise hearty side dish. Despite their name, sweet potatoes are low on the glycemic index and are loaded with essential vitamins and nutrients.

Cranberry Ginger Smoothie

Guard yourself this flu season with this refreshing and immune boosting smoothie. Cranberries are packed with the antioxidant, proanthocyanidins, as well as vitamin C and fiber, so while these bright red berries are supporting your immune system they also help feed your good gut bacteria. Bok choy bumps the nutritional value as well because of its high concentration of vitamins and minerals. Just in time for February 14th, the lovely pink hue will delight your Valentine. Breakfast in bed anyone?

Blistered Shishito Peppers

It’s pepper season and Shishitos are showing up on menus all around town. They are one of our go to appetizers in the fall because they taste spectacular but are also very easy to make. The smokiness in the chipotle pepper lends itself nicely to grill parties or snacks by the campfire. There will be a couple in each pint that will have a little, not too much, heat in them but most are mild in spice.

Cauliflower Rice

This is a low-carb side alternative to eating brown/white rice! While it may not be as hearty as actual rice, the taste and flavors are totally comparable to the real deal and it’s adding another vegetable into your meal. Use in stir fries, paellas, fried rice or as a side with any protein.
