Weekly Recipe

Cranberry Pistachio Energy Bites

As a zero waste business, we’re mindful of what ends up in our trash can.  One consistent culprit is the energy bar wrapper (some but not all are compostable).  Here’s an easy way to go zero waste without giving up the healthy convenience of energy bars: make your own! 

in.gredients:

  • 8 ounces (about 1 packed cup) chopped dates
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats (dry, not cooked)
  • 1 cup shelled pistachio nuts
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup white chocolate chips (optional)

in.structions:

Combine the dates, honey, chia seeds, flax seeds and salt in a food processor, and pulse until smooth and combined. You should be able to stir the mixture — if it is too thick, add in another tablespoon or two of honey.

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl, and stir in the oats, pistachios, dried cranberries, and white chocolate chips until evenly combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Once the mixture is cool (and easier to work with), use a spoon or cookie scoop to shape it into your desired size of energy balls. (1-inch diameter works well). Alternately, you can line a small baking pan with parchment paper, and press the mixture evenly into the pan, let it cool, and then cut into bars.

Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. (Storing them in the refrigerator especially helps the energy bites hold their shape.)

Vendor Spotlight

Profiles of some of our favorite vendors
Third Coast Coffee Roasting Company

Third Coast Coffee was one of our earliest, most enthusiastic partners on this journey of ours.  They wholly adopted and maintained (to this day) a zero waste delivery system that other vendors have since modeled theirs after.  And, most importantly, they’re coffees are consistently rich and delicious (not to mention fair trade and organic).  This week they’re in the vendor spotlight because they’re graciously providing 100 lbs of coffee grounds and 6 bags of coffee chaff (the skin that’s shed during roasting) for this Sunday’s garden workday.  Come learn how to utilize both of these in the garden while enjoying some complimentary Frios Mio cold brew coffee.

Weekly Recipe

“Art”-ichoke with Salted Garlic Butter

With a few new additions to our produce section, there is plenty to keep you busy in the kitchen. If you are looking for another hearty snack, consider sharing an artichoke or two with friends and family, or preparing the hearts as a tasty addition to your favorite salad.

We know this little veggie can be daunting to prepare, but have no fear, for we have advice from one of Austin’s top bloggers, Elizabeth Van Huffel, who has made the process simple and easy with photos and instructions to lead you on your way. Elizabeth’s blog, Local Savour, strives to incorporate 80 – 100 % of her ingredients locally and is a great resource for seasonal creations.  If you are already familiar with the art of artichoke preparation, we’ve gone ahead and listed Elizabeth’s favorite recipe below. Happy Eating!


in.structions

Salted Garlic Butter

Mix:

  • 3 tbsp of unsalted butter
  • ½ tsp of sea salt
  • ⅛ tsp of garlic powder or mashed fresh garlic

in.structions for cooking artichoke:

Cut off the stem of the artichoke until there is about ¼ an inch left. Rinse and place in a double boiler, cooking about 20 minutes or until the base of the stem is fork-tender. If you do not have a double boiler handy, immerse your artichokes in a pot of water, making sure to cover the artichokes completely and boil using the same method above. Once fully cooked and tender, remove excess water and serve with salted garlic butter.

Vendor Spotlight



Monthly profiles of some of our favorite vendors
Dear Run Land and Cattle Company
     Dear Run Land and Cattle Company is proudly owned by Douglas and Cynthia Dear.  
“We love breeding Texas longhorns, a true western heritage icon, and are determined to only breed premium registered longhorns.  Our longhorns are an extension of our family and we love them dearly.  They are our therapy after a stressful day and we look forward to them greeting us when we arrive home.  They each have their own special personality, just like our children, and there’s something magical about hand feeding a 1,000 pound animal with six foot long horns.  
     Our crash course in longhorn breeding strategy, has developed from our many conversations with longhorn experts from coast to coast.  This information along with the natural uniqueness, the longhorn breed possesses, gives our herd quality and eye appeal.  New adjectives of description are required every time we look at them.
      In our travels we have always been impressed with the friendly nature of the many longhorn breeders we have met.  No matter how busy they are, they will always stop and take time to discuss the breed and their animals.  This quality and the professional associations that exist for the longhorn breeders make raising longhorns very attractive.”

Wine of the Week: Duchman 2012 Trebbiano

One of the most widely planted varietals in the world, Trebbiano is found in over one third of the white wine DOCs in Italy and is a primary ingredient in the production of fine Cognac. Trebbiano has found a new home in the High Plains of Texas, and this rising star is one of the most exciting wines in our lineup. Exotic fruit aromatics and wonderful acid structure are hallmarks of Duchman Trebbiano.

Coffee of the Month: Third Coast Coffee Double French


What does it mean to be Double French? Third Coast’s ultimate dark roast doesn’t require the pedigree of a Chevallier-Bardot or the ennui of a Cafe Sartre; it already has all it needs with that smokey and mysterious “je no se qua.”  Dark as the existential universe, their Double French Roast would light your cigarette for you (if you smoked, which you shouldn’t).

Wunder Monday is back!


We missed it too, but it’s back! The ever popular #WunderMonday is here again and that means savings on the delicious Wunder-Pilz Kombucha. Stop in any Monday for $1 off a glass of fermented tea and feel good about all the “wunderful” things it does for your body and taste buds alike.  Hey, you might even start looking forward to Mondays!

Vendor Spotlight



Monthly profiles of some of our favorite vendors
Celtic Seafare

Sebastien Caillabet’s culinary adventures began while growing up in Ireland, where he developed an appreciation for fine foods. His family comes from a long lineage of chefs and restaurateurs specializing in all kinds of cuisines. It was in his father’s French restaurant that he developed a taste for traditional Irish smoked salmon, always a staple on the menu.

At 16, Sebastien started as a “stagier de cuisine,” spending summers working in the kitchens of well-known restaurants throughout France and Ireland. Similar to modern-day apprenticeships, he worked his way up from washing dishes, chopping parsley and de-bearding mussels to actually working the lines and preparing food. He then moved to Los Angeles and continued working in restaurants while attending school. For the next 18 years, he worked in the Hollywood film industry as a special effects technician. It was here he met the love of his life, Stephanie.

After moving to Austin, Texas in 2003, Sebastien continued to crave the silky, fresh-tasting smoked salmon he enjoyed as a young boy back in Ireland. He searched unsuccessfully throughout Central Texas, finding lesser-quality smoked salmon filets, frozen and filled with additives and preservatives.

Soon he began smoking and curing his own salmon, always a treat for family and friends.

In 2011, he turned his passion into a career and opened Celtic Seafare, an boutique-style company in South Austin. He maintains the high quality of sustainable sourced Atlantic salmon by smoking hand-selected filets in small batches. He began distributing his delicious products to a group of local chefs, as well as directly to customers at farmers markets throughout the area.

The Austin community has embraced this Irish delicacy and a loyal customer base has grown, including many Scottish, Irish and English folks who enjoy a delicious taste of home. In 2013 Celtic Seafare was moved to a larger building in Dripping Springs, located just west of Austin, and includes a Friday night supper club where customers can bring their own beer or wine to wash down smoked salmon delicacies. The team now offers specialty retail and catering.

Sebastien and Stephanie pride themselves on being members of the community where they work and are happy to share their family’s special tradition.

Weekly Recipe

With so many people coming to town right now the perfect host/hostess is always on the lookout for a great meal to feed their guests. With breakfast being the most important meal of the day why not make it fun! Here’s a great, quick and tasty recipe to start the day and keep you ticking through the afternoon.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

in.gredients

  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, or less to taste
  • Butter, for cooking



 

in.structions

  • In a small saucepan, combine the butter and milk. Place over low heat just until warm and the butter is melted. Let cool slightly. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; mix well.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with a fork. Whisk in the milk mixture. Add the dry ingredients and mix just until barely blended. Add the chocolate chips and mix.
  • Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Add about 1 teaspoon of butter and melt until bubbly. Ladle 3 tablespoons of batter for each pancake onto the hot surface and cook until bubbly on the top and golden brown on the bottom. Turn and cook until golden brown on the other side, about 30 seconds more. Repeat until all the batter is used up. Serve hot.

Wine of the Week: Flat Creek Super Texan

The 2012 Super Texan opens with notes of bing cherry, blueberry and subtle warm vanilla. The balanced acidity and supple tannins carry these flavors into a long finish with a hint of spice. This wine is perfect to accompany wood-fired pizza, pasta bolognese, or pulled pork. This is their signature wine and exemplifies the best of what it means to be a true Texas Wine.

Third Coast’s ultimate dark roast doesn’t require the pedigree of a Chevallier-Bardot or the ennui of a Cafe Sartre; it already has all it needs with that smokey and mysterious “je no se qua.”  Dark as the existential universe, their Double French Roast would light your cigarette for you (if you smoked, which you shouldn’t).

Cricker Crackers

Last night we had the pleasure of witnessing two intrepid Austin entrepreneurs take on the world of mainstream American television as contestants of the new Food Network show, “Food Fortunes.”  Cricker Crackers, the creation of two young Austinites that we’re proud to call regular customers,  are delicious paleo crackers made with cricket flour.  We were nothing short of in.spired by their plug for eating insects and “changing the global food system.” Though they didn’t land the big investment deal, they made a convincing and impressive pitch to the panel of judges (and millions of people watching live).  Congrats to Leah and Megan!  We can’t wait to count you among our community of local vendors working together to change the food system.
