Weekly Update 2/24/15

Weekly Recipe: The Ultimate Veggie Burger

1/4 cup Flax Seed
2 cups Organic Black Beans
2 cup TVP
1-2 Tbls Tamari
1 cup Finely Sliced Onion
2 Cloves Garlic
1 tbls Smoked Paprika
1 tsp Chili Flakes
1 tsp Cumin
2 tsp Oregano
Basil or Parsley
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil
A Splash of Red Wine Vinegar
 
  1. Hydrate and season the dried mushrooms and TVP with boiling water and Braggs or soy sauce.
  2. Saute the sliced onion and garlic with smoked paprika, chili flakes, cumin, oregano, salt, pepper. Then splash some red wine vinegar into the pan to deglaze and add some acid.
  3. Mash the cooked black beans into a chunky puree.
  4. Stir together the black beans, sauteed onion/garlic/spice mix, hydrated TVP & porcini mushrooms, fresh basil and parsley, and a few drops of liquid smoke.
  5. Sprinkle in freshly ground flax seed (1/4 cup) which acts as an egg to bind the mixture.
  6. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour (the longer the better – cooling the mixture allows the burgers to hold better).
  7. Dab some olive oil on your hands to prevent the burgers from sticking. Press the mixture into a mason jar lid wrapped in plastic aka my DIY burger mold. This method ensures that the burgers are all about the same size, and will therefore cook at the same time.
  8. Pan-fry the burgers in olive oil until they are crispy and browned on both sides. Then transfer back to baking sheets and bake at 350-400 for about 10 minutes.
  9. Coriander/parsley olive oil. One of the major criteria for an epic burger is ‘juiciness’, which comes from the fat-content of beef (and cooking time of the burger). To replace the saturated un-healthy fat from meat, I  used  monounsaturated olive oil, a healthy fat, to moisten the burgers and make them juicy. Simply spoon 1 tsp of herb oil over each burger.

Wine of the Week: McPherson Sangiovese

Sangiovese is an Italian cultivar that is well suited for Texas’ unforgiving climate. Working with this varietal for over a decadeMcPherson Cellars has developed a consistent style which mimics many of the Sangiovese wines of Tuscany. At the heart of the bouquet is a stunning red licorice and black cherry cola aroma. Aged in French oak marries this varietal character with a delicate oak nuance and adds a beautiful texture. Enjoy by the glass or take a bottle home for 10% OFF.  

Coffee of the Month: Big Bend Coffee Roasters Mexico Chiapas

This month’s coffee is from one of our favorite non-Austin partners, Big Bend Coffee Rasters out of Marfa, TX. They roast this bright and crisp coffee to Full-City—their lightest roast—to emphasize its pleasant notes of chocolate, orange peel, and nut. Roasted any darker, the beans would lose the delicate brightness that makes it a favorite coffee for breakfast.

Featured Recipe

Roasted Pork Tenderloin withShrub Drinks’ Balsamic Cherry Pan Sauce

There’s nothing quite like a home cooked meal on a cold night in, so if you’re looking for a great meal to warm your heart, look no further. Here’s a great recipe from one of our vendors Shrub Drinks using their amazing Balsamic Cherry Shrub. For more ideas be sure to check out their other recipes here.

in.gredients:

  • 1 1-1 ½ pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and patted dry
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 large shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 large clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Shrub Drinks Balsamic Cherry Shrub
  • 1 ½ cup low sodium chicken stock
  • ½ cup dried cherries soaked in ¼ cup bourbon for ½ hour
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
in.structions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat the oil in an ovenproof sauté pan. Season the pork with salt and pepper. When the oil is glistening, place the tenderloin in the pan and sear it until nicely browned on all sides. Place the pan in the oven to finish cooking the pork to an internal temperature of 145 degrees about 7 to 12 minutes. Take the pan out of the oven and remove the tenderloin to a plate and loosely tent the meat with aluminum foil. Strain the cherries, reserving the liquid. Set aside.

While the meat rests, place the pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and sauté until softened. Next, add the garlic and cook for a minute or 2 more. Be careful not to let the garlic get too brown or it will become bitter. Deglaze the pan with the ShrubDrinks Balsamic Cherry Shrub and the strained bourbon soaking liquid. It will reduce and begin to stick. Deglaze the pan again with the chicken stock, scraping up the browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Add the dried cherries. When it has reduced by about half, add any juices from the resting pork. Continue reducing to a sauce consistency. Off heat, swirl in the butter one tablespoon at a time to finish the sauce. Taste and adjust the seasonings.

Slice the pork on the diagonal about an inch thick. Place on a platter. Spoon some of the sauce over the top. Serve the remaining sauce at the table.

Wine of the Week: Duchman Vermentino

Vermentino is widely planted in Sardinia, Liguria, Piedmont and to a smaller extent in Corsica, Bolgheri, Languedoc, and Provence. Outside of Sardinia (and Texas), Vermentino is known by a variety on monikers including Pigato, Favorita, and Rolle. Vermentino is a late ripening varietal, and the resulting wines are typically aromatic, light, and possess a refreshing acidity. Duchman Vermentino is right at home with freshseafood, particularly shellfish and oysters. The beautiful acidity allows this wine to be a versatile pairing wine with a variety of lighter dishes.

Farmer Sue
We sure are lucky to call longtime Cherrywood resident Sue White, “Farmer Sue.”  She’s known in gardening circles in Austin as one of the best backyard gardeners around.  And she’s got the garden and veggies to show for it.  Her own plot, just a block and a half down Walnut from in.gredients, is a veritable Eden built over the course of 20 years of gardening.  As of this past fall, Sue tends to the plot in our front yard, too, which means that nearly everything grown on-site (by Sue’s masterful and sustainable green thumb) ends up in our cooler for you to take home.  The only place you could find fresher, more sustainably-grown, and carbon-free produce is your own garden!

Cashew Maple Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh my are these tasty!  If you’re looking for a special sweet to say “I love you” this weekend, try this one on for size – it won’t disappoint.  It’s an easy GFV substitution – just use your favorite non-wheat flour 

in.gredients:

  • 2 c oats
  • 1 c flour (try a non-wheat flour to make these GF/V!)  
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 c cashew butter
  • 1/4 c butter (softened) or canola oil
  • 3/4 c maple syrup
  • 1/2 c chocolate chips

in.structions:

Combine all of the dry in.gredients into a large mixing bowl. Mix them throughly so the baking soda mixes with the whole batch. Set aside.

Cream together the maple syrup, cashew butter, and butter (or oil) until consistent and smooth.  

Slowly mix the cashew butter/maple syrup into the dry mix as you stir to make it consistent. It will get to a point where the spoon or fork feels useless – that’s where your hands come in. Give them a good wash and dig right in, squeezing and flipping to make sure all of the oats and flour get picked up in the mix.

From here you can let it cool in the fridge for later or get right to baking.

Here, we did small nuggets but you can also flatten them to more of a palm sized disk (or heart shape?!). They tend to keep their shape so feel free to get creative.

Finally, with your oven preheated to 325, bake for 12-15 mins or until golden. Each batch makes about 16 cookies so be sure you have a lover or friend around or you may eat them all!

Cashew Milk Recipe

It’s pretty amazing what one cup of cashews can do! We’ve all heard of soy milk and almond milk, but have you ever heard of cashew milk? Here’s a super simple recipe that just might change your perspective on all nut milks.

Use this as a base in Thai food, soups, or even reduced to make a cream sauce.  Or just drink it straight! 

We love this recipe because it’s easy to make, easy to keep, and tastes deliciousWhen we say it’s easy, it’s kind of an understatement. Here’s your list of in.gredients:

1 cup Organic Raw Cashwes
2 oz of simple syrup (1:1 cane sugar & hot water)
3 cups filtered water
 

in.structions

  1. Soak 1 cup of cashews in 3 cups of filtered water for about an hour (20 mins with hot water if you want to speed it up)
  2. Put cashews & water in a blender and blend on high until the chunks of cashews are finely ground (about 5 mins)
  3. Strain the liquid through a nut milk bag, cheese cloth or muslin bag (nut milk bag works best)
  4. Sweeten as desired (or leave unsweet if you want to cook with it)

If you prefer a thinner milk, add a little more water during the blending process. If a heavier milk is desired, reduce the water by about a 1/2 cup.

Mark and Raul of the Austin Honey Company are passionate champions of the honeybee, local food systems, and organic agriculture.  They got their start keeping bees in Chicago before moving down here to Central Texas, where they partnered up with Green Gate Farms to establish their first apiaries.  A little over two years later, their operation now spans seven farms in the immediate Austin area, providing local organic growers the benefits of bee pollination, while producing delicious and nutritious honey along the way.  Their honey is never filtered or heated, which means it’s rich in nutritional and medicinal value.  As if their delicious honey weren’t enough, they also make some amazing beeswax candles, lip balm, and delicious whipped honey.  You know where to find it all!

We hope you were able to enjoy this gorgeous blue-skied long weekend while honoring the legacy of MLK Jr.  We did both by getting our hands dirty in the East Austin soils of the Urban Roots farm for their annual MLK volunteer weekend.  Lead by youth leaders and alongside fellow members of the community, we helped plant over 14,000 onions in their lower field along Boggy Creek (onions we may very well stock come late spring!).  It was an energizing and inspiring morning with an amazing organization doing great work.  They are always looking for volunteers, if you’d like to get in.volved.

Maybe you’ve noticed more consistent offerings of in.house salads and soups of late.  We have our new “food prep ninja,” Katy, to thank for that.  Here’s something she’s been making recently that we’ve really enjoyed: an apple pecan cole slaw made with organic JBG cabbage, wild-harvested Texas pecans, and organic granny smith apples.  Try a cup next time you’re in, then take home the in.gredients and make a whole batch for your family or roommates – it’s easy!

Granny Smith Pecan Cole Slaw

in.gredients

Serves 4
  • 1 large head green cabbage, sliced
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 cup rasins
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • Pepper to taste

Prep: 20 min Total: 30 min
 
Soak the chopped cabbage in a brine (~1 Tbs of salt dissolved in 4 cups of water) for about 15 mins. Drain and set aside.

Add mayonnaise & lemon juice to brined cabbage and mix well making sure all strands are coated.

Add chopped pecans, raisins, chopped apples, onions and toss to serve.

Wine of the Week: Flat Creek 2012 Super Texan 

The 2012 Super Texan opens with notes of bing cherry and blueberry with subtle warm vanilla. This intense, medium bodied wine has a full mid-palate highlighted with flavors of plum, blackberry and toasty oak. 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.

Describe yourself in 3 words:  Honest, Thoughtful & Somewhat-Funny!

What’s your favorite part about the neighborhood?  It feels like home, there’s nice people. I don’t feel like I have to leave the neighborhood, I can just walk to get food or buy groceries.

How did you hear about in.gredients?  My real estate agent told me about it before it opened. I walked over one day to check it out and I’ve been back everyday since.

Why do you come back?  I like to start my day with something that’s familiar. I come here and I know people, they know me. I get ready for my day and wake up with my dogs.

What are you favorite things about in.gredients?  The people that work here. It’s nice to see happy people who genuinely like to be here. It’s a nice place to hang out, too. Also, I love the Miles of Chocolate, coffee, etc.

Last but not least, if you were a fruit or vegetable, what would you be and why? An apple, and I don’t really know why…

Let’s be honest, 2015 has gotten off to a shaky start.  The incessant cold and grim headlines have many of us looking for real and metaphoric warmth.  This week we offer a few soup recipes that we hope can bring a little comfort and relief to you and yours.  Sometimes a homemade soup is all you need to turn things around.  Plus, check out this week’s specials for some inspiration to keep up those resolutions!

Hearty Winter Stews

Chorizo & White Bean Stew

Recipe by The Bon Appétit Test Kitchen

in.gredients

Servings: 4

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for drizzling
1 pound chorizo (now available!)
1 large onion, thinly sliced
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 sprig thyme
2 15-ounce cans cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
5 ounces baby spinach (about 10 cups)
Smoked paprika (optional)

in.structions

Prep: 45 min Total: 45 min
 
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 15-20 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate.
Reduce heat to medium. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in same skillet. Add onion, garlic, and thyme sprig. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, 5-8 minutes. Add beans and broth and cook, crushing a few beans with the back of a spoon to thicken sauce, until slightly thickened, 8-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add spinach by handfuls and cook just until wilted, about 2 minutes.
Slice chorizo and fold into stew; add water to thin, if desired. Divide stew among bowls; drizzle with oil and sprinkle with paprika, if desired.

Vendor Spotlight

Coffee of the Month: New Sweden Coffee Ethiopia Duromina

Monthly profiles of some of our favorite vendors

Bret of New Sweden Coffee Roasters
Talks Ethiopia Duromina, Coffee of the Month

“This coffee from Duromina Cooperative is part of an initiative we have in Ethiopia to work direct at the coop level. We have been involved with Duromina for the past 5 years, selecting our favorite lots to offer on our site. Duromina was formed with the help of a non-government organization that not only coordinated agronomists and managers for each of the coops they work with, but also had a business adviser assigned that helped the cooperative manage their debt, re-invest in quality improvements at the mill, and verifies distribution of income to all members. This is a key position; I have never known a coop to get this kind of expert advice from outside … not in Africa at least. A cooperative can make all kinds of quality improvements, turn out fantastic coffee, and sink deeper in debt all the while. Cooperatives often fail to return a fair and full amount of payment to their farmer-members. Often this is from poor management, and sometimes from graft as well. Duromina has now “graduated” from the NGO program and operates independently with the oversight of various farmer-member leadership groups. The name, chosen by the farmers, has quite a straight-forward meaning: it roughly translates as “Make More Money!” With the solid price we pay the cooperative for their best lots, and their success reinvesting in the Goma area, the name has proved quite appropriate.”
