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

We’ve got a great weekend of events coming up.  See below for details on our Spring Festival on Easter Sunday (meet the “Debonaire Hare”!), and the much-anticipated return of Adriene Mishler teaching yoga on our lawn (as part of the Fusebox Festival).  Also on the horizon are two wonderful food events: Cooking Up Cultures on Sunday the 27th and our ever-so-popular Go Texan, Go Local Culinary Workshop now scheduled for May 4th.  Sign up today – spots go quickly!

Weekly Specials

You probably know by now that we’re huge proponents of eating locally and seasonally.  This isn’t always a simple or easy task, but it all starts with awareness.  Maple syrup, for example, is only produced in Northern regions where the Sugar Maple tree thrives and the climate is just right for sap flows.  So while we can’t make our own maple 

syrup here in Texas, we can still appreciate and celebrate “sugaring” season.  It’s hard for us Texans to imagine, but up North the sap is a-flowing and the syrup is a-boiling.  To honor the season of the sap flow, we’re putting our delicious and small-batch maple syrup from the Maple Valley Cooperative on sale.  Plus, we’ve shared one of our favorite cornbread recipes (“Maple Cornbread” from the Vermont Maple Syrup Cookbook – see below), and put most of the other ingredients needed to make this delicious gem on sale, too!

Coffee of the Month

Featured Recipe | Maple Cornbread

This recipe is a guaranteed crowd and family pleaser.  The maple syrup makes it wonderfully moist and sweet, but the whole wheat flour keeps it hearty and nutty.  Serve it with dinner or cook it into a rich porridge for breakfast (one of our favorites!). Just mush a slice into a cup of milk and heat  slowly in a saucepan.  

From the Vermont Maple Syrup Cook Book:

in.gredients:

  • 1 1/4 c. corn meal

  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. maple syrup
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 F 
  • Combine dry ingredients, make a well in the center, and add the wet ingredients
  • Mix just enough to combine
  • Pour into greased 9″ baking dish
  • Bake at 400 F for ~20 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean
  • Serve warm with butter and more maple syrup! 

Next-Day Maple Cornbread Porridge

  • Mash a generous piece of cornbread into a saucepan of milk.  Stir to combine and heat slowly.  Add milk to desired consistency.  
  • Heat and stir until a smooth and thick porridge forms.  
  • Serve with maple syrup!

Announcing Our New Community Partner!

We’re pleased to announce that our new community non-profit partner, as of April 1st, is the Kealing Middle School PTA!  Congrats, y’all – we look forward to supporting and working with you over the next 6 months!  

Weekly Specials

With Spring officially upon us, we’re celebrating one of our favorite Texas seasons with two of our favorite Texas hobbies: drinking delicious craft beer and growing food out in the garden (they pair nicely, too).  

All this week we’ll take $2 off growler fills of beer, which means just 10 bucks for most of what you’ll find on our rotating taps (including Independence Brewing’s Stash, Live Oak’s Hefeweizen, and Austin Beerworks’ Pearl-Snap, to name a few).  That’s a pretty good deal for 64oz of fresh, local brews to go.  

Plus, we’re taking $2 off Joe’s Organic’s “Green Pastures” compost!  Kick start your spring garden with some rich and beautiful organic compost made right here in Austin.

Coffee (etc.) of the Month

Our new partnership with Equal Exchange, one of the pioneers in Fair Trade cooperatives that dates back to 1986, continues.  Find their rich “Love Buzz” coffee blend on sale all month, plus look for their emblem elsewhere in our bulk section for the highest quality, small-producer dried fruits and nuts.  We’re especially excited about their dried mango, which has the complex flavor and taste only small-batch harvests and sustainably-grown fruits can bring.  We also carry their organic baking cocoa, organic dried pineapple, and organic California almonds!

Featured Product | Pu-er

The West China Tea Company, lead by the passionate and knowledgeable “tea ninja” So-Han Fan, recently brought us these adorable “bird’s nests” of pu-er, a biologically-active aged tea from Yunnan in Southwestern China.  If you haven’t yet discovered the joy and benefits of drinking pu-er, keep your eyes out for his delightful and enlightening tea tastings in the coming months. Or, grab a few “mini tuos” and make some at home!

What a week!  Thanks to all those who came out to in.sessions.  We had a great time and hope y’all did, too.  Each and every musician and band that came through brought something special, but a few of our favorites were POWERSOLO, Decorator, Yellow Red Sparks, Rock Bottom String Band, Vita and the Woolf, and Kiven.  

Check out more photos on our Facebook page.  Have some to share? Post ‘em and tag us!  And, of course, look for more live music on the porch this spring!  

Weekly Specials:

This week it’s all about “BYOC” (Bring Your Own Container). Rather than donating the usual 5 cents to our community non-profit partner each time you bring in a container for reuse, this week we’ll donate 10 cents per container!  Help us finish off our partnership with SafePlace on a high note by practicing zero waste shopping.  

New Community Partner Voting is OPEN! 

This week we’re asking you to help us decide our next non-profit partner by voting online or in person (at our front counter when you check out).  The four finalists in the running are: EcoRise Youth Innovations, Attendance Records, GALS, and Kealing PTA.  You have until March 23rd to cast your vote for the new partnership that kicks off on April 1st.

We’re getting pretty excited for our line up of in.sessions out on the porch next week and hope you are, too.  See below for more details on what’s shaping up to be a great few days.  In the meantime, come by and take advantage of our weekly deals, including the much-anticipated return of Pure Luck Farm & Dairy fresh chevre.  Thank goodness those goats have finished “kidding” their young! 

Seasonal Hours
Beginning 3/6, we’ll be open until 11pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Weekly Specials:

Morehart Farm is owned and operated by two Cherrywood residents. Their heritage “New Hampshire” hens are laying beautiful (and plentiful!) eggs after a slower winter season.  Come in and grab a dozen – on sale this week for $4.99 – and taste the difference of happy, heritage hens.

Pure Luck Farm and Dairy in Dripping Springs, Texas makes some of the most luxurious goat-milk cheeses around.  The only reason not to fall in love with their cheeses is the inevitability of having to go without it for a few months while the goats nurse their young (aka “kidding”). To celebrate its return, we’re putting their fresh chevre on sale at $9.49/half pound (save $3/lb).  

JBG Organic Beets - $2.49/bunch

One crop that doesn’t mind these cold nights is one of our favorites: beets!  We’ll be saying goodbye to this winter crop before long, so this week we’re offering them up on sale.  Want a really delicious side dish?  Roast ‘em, peel ‘em, and toss them with the Pure Luck Chevre that’s also on sale this week.  Your dinner guests will be talking about your culinary skills for days.  

Nature’s Path “Kidz” Cereal 

This week find all of our kid cereals on sale.  These are organic, gluten free, and delicious.  Channel your inner child and enjoy a bowl in house – we’ll give you a complimentary splash of rich Mill-King milk (or almond/soy, if you prefer) and soon you’ll be drinking that chocolatey, milky goodness just like when you were ten.  

Events:

Send us a message if you’d like to plan an event here – we’re a great spot to host your next happy hour, meeting, or birthday party.  

Geeks Who Drink Trivia

Gardener’s Market!
Saturday, March 8th, 9am-12pm

Join us for yet another morning of beautiful seedlings from YardFarm, compost from Joe’s Organics, and Dripping Springs Ollas!  Vendors will be on hand to answer all your questions.  

Live Music on the Porch
Sunday, March 9th, 2-4pm

A musician’s co-op from Bloomington, Indiana - The Grant St. Musicians – is kicking off our week of live music a bit early with a Sunday afternoon set of tunes ranging from Daniel Johnston to Hank Williams.  Whet your appetite for the rest of the week with this relaxed Sunday session on our porch.  

Acoustic porch sessions are back!  Catch bands from all over the world and all over the city for three days of neighborhood music.  We kick things off the evening of Thursday, March 13th, and run all day Friday, and all day Saturday.  Find specifics, including band announcements here.  The icing on the cake?  We’ll have beer and soda floats made with Lick Ice Cream available on Friday and Saturday.  See y’all soon!

Recipe of the Week  –  Broccoli Cheddar Soup

When Urban Roots brings us a box of beautiful broccoli from their 2 acres of heaven down on Bolm Road, we just can’t help but turn it into a rich and delicious soup, especially when winter rears its chilly head the way it has this week.  Come enjoy a cup or bowl with us at the shop this week, or take the ingredients home and make a big pot with the following recipe.  Salud!
