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.

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!

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.

Meet (soon-to-be) Mr. and Mrs. Jones

This week marks a special occasion in the life of not only our store, but also two of our favorite regulars. Erin and Schuyler met here at in.gredients around the end of 2013 and, after a few short months of getting to know each other, soon found love. After some time, Schuyler popped the question to which Erin replied with a resounding “YES!” After a little deliberation, the obvious choice for the venue was in.gredients, where they had made so many memories before. They are an incredibly witty, intelligent, and sensible couple who always find a good way to make one another laugh. We were delighted that they asked us and are excited by the idea of our first wedding on the grounds. This weekend we are proud to usher them into the world – from our humble house – as man and wife.

This Week’s Produce

All non-local items are Certified Organic.
Local items come from farms with a commitment to sustainable practices.

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.

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. 

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.

Vendor Spotlight

Monthly profiles of some of our favorite vendors
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!

Wine of the Week: 2012 Texas Madeira by Haak Winery

Looking for something extra special for that extra special someone? Look no further than this incredible Texas Madeira made from the blanc du Bois, a white grape grown in their Texas vineyard. It opens up in the glass with aromatic fragrances of dried apricots and peaches covered with caramel. This sensation follows through on the palate with soft, buttery caramel-coated apricots and peaches with a soft hint of green tea and fresh lemons.
