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!

in.gredients

  • 1 bunch kale
  • 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
  • 10-12 cups water or veggie broth (or add 2 Tbs Better Than Bouillon to water)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 Tbs ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat sesame oil in a large stock pot and add shallots, sautéing until golden brown.
  2. Add chopped garlic along with all the spices.  
  3. Add chopped potatoes, sweet potatoes, and carrots.  Mix thoroughly.  
  4. Add pre-soaked garbanzo beans, water/bouillon/broth, and bay leaves.  
  5. Bring pot to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover for 20 mins, stirring occasionally.
  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: Provencal by Becker Vineyards
Wine of the Week continues this week with, Provencal, a satisfying dry rose with notes of tropical fruits and strawberries. This award winning wine from Becker Vineyards will be available by the glass all week, so give it a try before taking home a bottle (on sale!). Becker Vineyards only uses Texas grapes, a commitment to local production that we (and you) can feel good about.  
New Products: Sauces!
We have a few new organic and gluten free sauces from Organicville to tantalize your tastebuds! A Sriracha Sauce that is sure to kick anything up a notch, a creamy dairy free Thousand Island dressing that’s perfect for salads, and a Miso Ginger Vinaigrette with the healing powers of Miso, Ginger and Sesame.
Summer Recipe: Cold Brew Coffee at Home

Cold brew coffee made at home is easy, rewarding, and more affordable than alternatives.  Plus, it’s less acidic, versatile, and lasts in your fridge for up to two weeks.  The concentrate can also be used in baking, syrups/sauces, or in milkshakes (yum!).

Here’s how to do it…..

1. Coarsely grind 3 cups (or just over 1/2 a pound) of Fara Espresso beans.

2. Fill your CoffeeSock with the grinds and moisten them for a ‘bloom.’

3. Secure the neck of the sock with the string and insert into 64oz Mason Jar.

4. Fill the jar with cold, filtered water and let steep for 12-18 hours.

5. Remove sock (let drain at lip of jar) and voila, you’ve got a delicious cold brew concentrate.

6. Mix (about 1:3) with water, milk, or milk alternatives to your desired strength.

7. Store covered in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Featured Recipe

Crisp + Crunchy Potato Salad
Last week’s Culinary Workshop featured the first harvest of Green Gate Farms potatoes in this wonderful twist on an American classic. With more Texas potatoes on their way, this is a great dish to try for your next family dinner or potluck BBQ – all will be impressed!

From Andi Jo of Traveling Recipes

Potato Salad Ingredients: diced new potatoes, 1 1/2 cup chopped pickles, finely diced French Breakfast radish, 6 shredded chard leaves, chopped olives, 1 cup cilantro chopped (save 10 sprigs for presentation), diced red bunch onions and spring onions, 2 tsp caraway seeds, juice from 2 lemons, 1 1/2 cup crushed walnuts (place in towel securely and BEAT with spoon!), cracked pepper to taste and ½ cup whole grain mustard, crushed red pepper to taste, salt to taste

Ingredients for cashew cream: 3/4 cup cashew, 3/4 cup water, 1 tsp lemon juice, ½ tsp apple cider vinegar, white pepper

Making the salad: Prep all veggies. Prepare the cashew cream by adding all ingredients to a blender and blending until smooth. Set aside. Dice the potatoes into 1 inch cubes. (Slice potato in half, lay on flat side and cut again. Repeat until you have 1 inch cubes.) Fill pot 1/2 way full with hot water (or until covers 2 inches above potatoes) and place on burner; begin boil.  Boil in water for 8-12 minutes; water should be 2 inches above potatoes. After 10 minutes, check a potato — texture should be firm but cooked. While water is boiling, saute spring onions in pan, no water…when they begin begin to brown, add a splash of water and repeat this process for 5 minutes. Then, prep all salad ingredients and place in large bowl (except lemon, cilantro, chard and mustard). In small bowl, whisk cashew cream, lemon, cilantro and mustard until smooth. Drain potatoes with colander over a sink and place in big bowl. Toss with other ingredients, creamy dressing & cracked pepper. Lastly, toss with chard.

Presentation: Place salad in presentation bowl. Crack pepper on top. Make artful presentation!

Recipe: Garden Bibimbop 
This bibimbop recipe was probably our favorite from Sunday’s Culinary Workshop. The “Go Chu Jang,” or pecan paste, has a superb flavor.  Many thanks to Andi Jo of Traveling Recipes for another wonderful evening.  

From Traveling Recipes

Ingredients for Bibimbop: 2 cups cooked brown rice, 4 cups water, 4-5 carrots-julienned, 1 cup Kimchi-chopped,  2 cucumbers-julienned, 1 purple cabbage-shredded, spring onion-finely chopped, cilantro to taste, mushrooms-sliced, zucchini & squash–julienned, Go Chu Jang

Ingredients for Go Chu Jang (Pecan paste): 2.5 cups chopped pecans, 1.5 cup hydrated sundried tomatoes, 1/2 cup water, 2 tbs Korean red pepper, 1 tsp minced ginger, 2 tbs chipotle powder, 3 tbs apple cider vinegar, 1 garlic clove, 1/4 white onion, 4 dates-pitted, 1 red bell pepper optional, 2 tbs kimchi

Procedure for rice: Rinse rice thoroughly, add rice to pot on stove top and add 4 cups water, bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook covered for 40-45 minutes. Remove from heat. Let sit until serving.

Procedure for Go Chu Jang: Pitt dates. Combine all ingredients in bowl and toss so the flavors carry.Then, place ½ or ⅓ batch into vitamix and blend until fully mixed…you might need to blend in stages using a spatula when the machine is OFF to force the mixture back down into the blade.

Procedure for bibimbop: Prep all ingredients. Saute the mushrooms in a pan on medium heat with 2 tbs of water and the lid on for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside until ready to make.

Presentation: Make an example bowl. If time, make as many bowls as time allows before dinner. Place compacted 3oz scoop of rice into center of each bowl and arrange each ingredient around the rice. Place 2 tbs of the Go Chu Jang next to the rice. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Stir and dig in.

Pioneering the Possible

with one comment

Our ambitious ethos has garnered quite a bit of attention since our IndieGoGo campaign launched us into the public spotlight just about three years ago.  People from across the globe applauded our efforts to reduce food-related waste in the grocery industry by pioneering a “package free” model.  It’s been almost two years of holding close to our original, idealistic vision of a different kind of grocery store, and though the response from the community – near and far – has remained positive and supportive, the numbers from our first 21 months of business paint a different picture than we had hoped.

Rather than give up and lament the impossibility of a perfect package free grocery model, we are narrowing our focus to three things we know we do well: zero wastelocal food, and community.  As a result, we hope to remain a part of the sustainable food movement, a part of this vibrant and growing city, and a part of this dynamic, diverse community on Manor Road.  We plan to bend so as not to break, pivot to not fall, and innovate towards what’s pioneering but not impossible.

In practice, this shift means discontinuing a portion of our bulk section to make room for some new offerings.  Our updated guiding principles look like this:

Zero waste: We average less landfill waste per month than an American averages per day! 

Local food: As a hub for quality local products, we champion small farms and producers and promote local, seasonal eating.  Some might say we have farmers market offerings with grocery store hours.

Community: Community gatherings – formal and informal, educational and social – are a regular happening around here.  Plus, we love to partner with and support like-minded businesses and organizations that are also committed to a greener, more just world.

Still have some questions? Check out our updated FAQ page.  We hope you’ll rally behind us as we make these changes and help us stick around for the duration.

Humbly,

The in.gredients Team
