Giving Thanks

Y’all know what we’re grateful for this season? You guessed it: local food, grown sustainably!  And folks like yourself who choose to shop with us or at farmers markets because you know that good food is worth a little extra.  Why not make your Thanksgiving table as local as possible this year?  In this special edition newsletter, we give you all kinds of reasons to come check out what we have in stock. Offer your guests or hosts something unique this holiday and they’ll surely be grateful. 

Recipes

We’ve all got our favorite Thanksgiving recipes but here are a few to help fill the holes.  And to make these recipes even easier, we’ve created some in.store bundles, including recipe cards and deals.  Come in and see for yourself!

Hearty Autumn Stew (GF/V)

This soup is almost your entire Thanksgiving meal in a bowl.  Packed full of hearty seasonal greens and root vegetables, it’s a great way to please everyone at your table.  Consider serving this as a side at the big meal as a vegan option, or add leftover turkey the next day and enjoy over the weekend. Not quite ready to commit?  Come in and try a bowl – it’s our Soup of the Week!

  • 1 lb red potatoes (diced)
  • 1 1/2 lb sweet potatoes (diced)
  • 1/2 lb carrots (diced)
  • 2 cups garbanzo beans, pre-soaked (cover w/ water and let sit overnight)
  • 2 limes 
  • 1 bunch shallots (chopped)
  • 2 Tbs sesame oil

  4. Add pre-soaked garbanzo beans, water/bouillon/broth, and bay leaves.

  6. Once potatoes are soft, mix in kale and cook just until soft (retaining it’s bright green color)
  7. Serve with a hearty sourdough or multigrain bread.  

Ginger-Apple Pumpkin Soup by Love and Lemons

When we’re wondering what to cook up for dinner on a given night or how to spice up a weekend potluck, we often turn to one of the many wonderful food bloggers here in Austin.  This recipe comes from the Austin Chronicle’s 2013 Top Food Blogger, Love and Lemons. Get 10% off the bundle if you purchase all the ingredients pictured to the right!    

in.gredients

  • 1 medium pumpkin or butternut squash
  • 1 small apple (or 1/2 a large one)
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper (for roasting)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon additional salt (or to taste)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Roast pumpkin/squash – cut in half and scoop out insides (save and toast seeds!).  Drizzle with olive oil, salt/pepper, and roast cut side up for 20 minutes, flip and roast cut side down for another 20 or so minutes, or until the flesh is soft.  Remove from oven and let cool, then peel the skin away from flesh. 
  3. While the squash roasts, slice the apple and onion into wedges and arrange on a baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil, salt/pepper, and roast for 20 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown.  During hte last 10 minutes or so, add the whole garlic cloves to the baking sheet.  
  4. In a blender, add pumpkin mash, roasted onion, apple, garlic (remove skins), coconut milk, ginger, cardamom, cayenne and salt.  Puree until smooth.  If too thick, add a bit of water or broth to thin and blend again.  
  5. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking!  

Candied Sweet Potatoes (V)

This vegan twist on a Thanksgiving classic is a must for many people, and now that we’ve got vegan marshmallows in stock, you can make sure no one at your table has to miss out.  Add a little bourbon or rum to give some punch to this one!  

in.gredients

  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 5 Tbs Earth Balance Butter spread
  • 2 cups mini vegan marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup chopped raw pecans
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground ginger

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Add sweet potatoes to a 13x9x2 glass baking dish. 
  2. Combine sugar, maple syrup, Earth Balance, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and ginger in a small saucepan and cook gently until all ingredients are combined.  
  3. Pour warm mixture over sweet potatoes and toss to coat evenly.  Cover dish with foil.
  4. Bake sweet potatoes for 50 minutes.  Uncover and bake until potatoes are tender and browned.  
  5. Raise temperature to 500 degrees F and top with marshmallows and pecans.  
  6. Bake for about 3 minutes, or until marshmallows and nuts start to brown.  

We’ve got what you need!

Tips for a Green Thanksgiving  

Have a waste management plan!
If you’re hosting a lot of family or friends and you don’t have enough dish ware, consider using compostable plates (yes, you can get ‘em here) instead of plastic or coated paper.  Of course, this means you’ll need to be composting.  Don’t have space or want to bother? Check out our zero waste friends, the Compost Pedallers for help.  
Grow Your Own Food
Okay, maybe it’s a little late to start growing your own food for this Thanksgiving, but consider starting a garden this season and perhaps by next Thanksgiving you’ll be harvesting your own herbs, greens, and root vegetables for the big meal. Need help? Ask YardFarm – they’re experts!
Buy Direct from Farmers
Seek out your nearest farmers market to get produce, meats, and cheese directly from the producers.  Not sure where to go? Try SFCTexas Farmers Markets, or HOPE Farmers Market.  Be sure to tell them we say hello!

 

REMINDER

We’ll be closed Thursday AND Friday of next week!

Wine of the Week:  Duchman 2012 Dolcetto

Native to the Piedmont region of Italy, Duchman’s Dolcetto is grown in the deep soil on the Texas High Plains. The Dolcetto grape is thick skinned and naturally tannic. Through very careful handling and neutral oak aging, Duchman Dolcetto is a pure expression of the grape and the vintage. Dark fruit and red plum notes along with well balanced acidity are hallmarks of this wine.

Weekly profiles of some of our favorite regulars

Avital & Jen

Describe yourself in 3 words:  “She’s my momma”

What’s your favorite part about the neighborhood?  We’re close to everything.

How did you hear about in.gredients?   We watched it being built and wondered what it was going to be for a long time.

What are you favorite things about in.gredients?  Her favorite thing is it has a playground and her favorite blueberry drinks! Its super friendly, we love the dogs and just knowing that there’s good quality stuff. I appreciate the mission and everything y’all have done to create a community gathering space. It’s a great place for the whole family to come and meet our friends, and it’s close to our house, so we can walk.

If you were to describe in.gredients in one word, what would it be?  Necessary.

Wine of the Week:  Argus Cidery Malus Cuvee

The Malus Cuvee is a blend of apples from both the 2011/2012 harvest. Aged on New American Oak, the Malus is a fruit forward apple table wine inspired by some of Argus’ favorite new world whites and German Apfelweins. Argus has growers Baxter, Cal and Dan to thank for the perfect apple blend that went into this first still wine release.  A real treat for the fall and it’s on sale all week!

Kale is Back!  

Thanks to the folks at Johnson’s Backyard Garden, we’ve got some beautiful Green Curly and Red Russian kale, the first of the (now-it-finally-feels-like) Fall season!  We know how much you love this stuff, and how much we’ve all missed it over the long, hot Texas summer.  Time to settle in for a nice long stretch of incredible cool-weather greens like kale from JBG and other farms (including our own soon!).  Can we get a “Kale Yeah”?!

Featured Recipe: Homemade Sweet Potato Chips

These are so easy to make, you’ll never need (or want) to buy chips from us again!  All you need is a shallow pan (7″ or 9″ cast iron works great) with about a half inch of organic coconut oil in it, and a bunch of thinly sliced (as thin as you can get ‘em!) sweet potatoes.  Heat the oil ’til 

it starts to crackle and carefully/gently add the slices of sweet potatoes.  Cook them until they turn a light brown and become firm and crispy (1-2 mins).  Remove to a paper towel-lined plate or pan to drain excess oil and cool.  Best enjoyed while still warm, though, so eat ‘em soon!

Wine of the Week: Haak Vineyards 2012 Malbec

This Texas Malbec from Haak Winery is complex, well rounded, and full of dark, brooding character. Extended maceration coaxed the beautiful rich colors and flavors into the finished wine, and a flawlessly managed barrel contact gave the complexity that oak aging contributes without overpowering the natural Malbec character.  A real Texas gem for you to enjoy all week – on sale!

Are you in.?

Erin

Now here’s a classy broad you’ve probably seen hanging out. She’s one of our neighbors and works close by so we tend to see her a lot. If there’s one thing she sure brings to the table it’s a great smile and sense of humor. So meet Erin - she’s definitely in.
