This is George. He came to me as a client wanting to create a vegan product. He brought his “oat almond cinnamon date” topping that he wanted me to help him perfect. After talking to George and getting an idea of what he was looking for we went into my kitchen to fine tune the recipe. There he pulled out all the ingredients he brought for me to use to make a tastier, crunchier vegan raw topping.
Warm day, sunny day! Yippeeee! Grateful for all the organic farmers growing great greens this time of year. And of course there is plenty of wild dandelion greens and chives right out the door to add to the fun of fresh harvest. Organic Lawn to table meet organic farm to table. Time for lunch with locavore organic salad greens that I picked up at the farmers market. Dressing it up with some organic, fair trade, avocados from my local coop. You can add some nuts, like organic pecans, like I did below or organic olives. Simple! Either way, will be delicious, nutrition and satisfying. For a quick dressing, I like to have on hand organic blood orange flavored virgin olive oil and my homemade infused Strawberry Vanilla Fig Balsamic made last summer with organic strawberries from my CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). YUM!
Picking up organic ground cherries at my (Community Supported Agriculture) CSA, the Brookfield Farm, biodynamic farm in Amherst Massachusetts. Green ones are tart and yellow orange ones are sweet. Make sure you pick them up off the ground; hence the name ground cherries. Yum
