ORGANIC RECIPES

Seedless Grape Tart Recipe

Seedless Grape Tart

You Better Make Two In Case The Neighbors Find Out…

You can substitute Concord grapes if you can’t find Thomcord grapes, but you’ll need to remove the seeds. Red grapes or Zante currants (champagne grapes) might work nicely, but I haven’t tried it.
Crust
8 ounces gingersnap cookies (or graham crackers)
5 tablespoons butter, meltedFilling
8 ounces plain, non-fat Greek-style yogurt
8 ounces light cream cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup sugar grated zest from 1 orangeTopping
2 pounds Thomcord grapes
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. To prepare the crust, pulse cookies in a food processor until ground to fine crumbs. (Alternatively, you can put the cookies in a sealed, plastic bag and roll over them with a rolling pin.) Drizzle the melted butter over the crumbs and stir with a fork until well combined. Press crumbs into a pie plate and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until crust is lightly browned. Let cool completely.To prepare filling, In a large bowl, blend the yogurt, cream cheese, sugar, and zest until smooth. This is easiest to do with a mixer, but you can do it by hand. Pour filling evenly into cooled crust and smooth top. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour.To prepare the topping, put the grapes into a saucepan over medium heat. Cook 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until grapes begin to split and release their juice. In a small bowl, stir together cornstarch and water until smooth. Pour cornstarch mixture into saucepan and stir until juice thickens and becomes clear. Let cool. Spoon topping over the filling shortly before serving.

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder*
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 4 chicken breasts or Vegan Chicken
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup halved seedless green grapes

Banana, Beet & Blueberry Bread Recipe

Beet Bread

Wet Ingredients
1 extra-large organic beet (about the size of an apple) or 2 or 3 smaller organic beets
1 cup organic blueberries
1 ripe organic banana
1 egg and 2 egg whites
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup organic applesauce
Juice of 1 organic lemon
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Dry Ingredients
2 cups gluten-free flour
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
1/2 cup organic light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Wash the beets thoroughly with a vegetable brush and trim the ends off. The next step is to cook the beets. I learned from my mom that there are a number of ways to slow-cook beets from roasting to boiling. But as a busy mom-on-the-go, I prefer a shorter alternative; I cook beets in the microwave for about 8 minutes.
Place the cooked and peeled beets into the blender with the blueberries and 1 banana. Purée the beets for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth.
Crack the eggs and place them in a large bowl and beat the eggs. Add the olive oil, applesauce, lemon juice and vanilla to the eggs and mix the ingredients together. Be sure not to get any lemon seeds into the mixture. Slowly mix the blueberry, beet and banana purée into the egg mixture and blend until smooth.
In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir. The texture of the batter needs to be pretty soft, in order to make moist bread.
Grease a 9x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for approximately 50 to 60 minutes. Oven times may vary, so in order to know if it’s done, stick a toothpick into the middle of the bread until it comes out clean. Once the bread has been baked, let it sit for 10 minutes to cool on a wire rack.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts Recipe

Roasted-Brussel-Sprouts

The Brussels sprout is a cultivar in the Gemmifera group of cabbages, grown for its edible buds. Brussels sprouts can provide you with some special cholesterol-lowering benefits when they’ve been steamed.

A recent study has shown improved stability of DNA inside of our white blood cells after daily consumption of Brussels sprouts. For total glucosinolate content, Brussels sprouts are now known to top the list of commonly eaten cruciferous vegetables which help prevent thyroid cancer. 

 Ingredients
1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons good olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Sprinkle with more kosher salt ( I like these salty like French fries), and serve immediately.

Roasted Golden Beets

roasted-golden-beetsJust as in the Brussel Sprouts Recipe (above), Golden Beets may be roasted at the time time the same way.  Don’t forget to save the tops for salad, juicing, or sauteeing with a little garlic!

Kale and Salmon Recipe

kale and salmon

Ingredients:

1 large bunch kale
juice of 2 limes
1/4 olive oil
salt, to taste
1/4-1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
1/2 cup currants
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Remove the large, central stems of the kale and roughly chop the leaves before placing in a food processor. Pulse the kale until the kale is processed into very small pieces. Then, add the lime juice, olive oil, salt, pine nuts, currants and Parmesan (adjusting amounts to suite your taste buds). Stir to combine.
Enjoy as is or with seasoned salmon!

Kale Sautee’ Recipe

kale salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch kale or chard
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or pistachios
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Sea salt to taste

Start by mincing your garlic, just to make it a tiny bit healthier. Rinse your greens and place them all on a cutting board oriented in the same direction. If the leaves have very thick stems you may want to remove them as explained here. Personally I buy greens that are fresh and tender enough that I rarely bother removing stems.

Pile the greens on top of each other. Starting at the tip of the leaves, cut 1 inch strips until you have cut the entire bunch. If you are using Tuscan or red Russian kale, a lot less chopping is necessary because the leaves are thin and only need be cut in one direction. If your leaves are wide, cut them into 1-2 inch squares. It’s okay if your greens are still wet, the water will help them steam.

Using a pan with tall sides and a lid, add the nuts and turn it on medium heat. Lightly toast the nuts, stirring regularly with tongs. After 2-3 minutes, add olive oil to the pan and allow it to heat up. Add your chopped greens to the pan, sprinkle generously with sea salt and toss with tongs. Cover.

Stir the greens occasionally so they don’t burn, always replacing the lid after stirring. Continue cooking the greens as they wilt and turn dark green. If they start to burn lower the heat, add 1-2 tbsp of water and cover again to steam.

Kale is done cooking when it is dark green and the stems are tender. Unlike spinach, it is very difficult to over-cook kale because it retains its crispness very well.  Before turning off the heat, use tongs to clear a space in the center of the pan and add your minced garlic in a single layer. Allow the garlic to cook until it becomes fragrant, about 30 seconds, then mix it up with the kale and nuts. Add half cup of beans or lentils at this point if desired.

Continue to cook greens uncovered for another minute or two. Taste test a leaf for saltiness and adjust to taste (be careful if you are using chard, it is naturally salty and easy to over-season).

Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, and celery; sauté until golden, about 5-7 minutes. Meanwhile bring a large saucepan of water to a boil.

Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated through. Remove from heat; season to taste with salt. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with toasted coconut and peanuts.

Kale Omlette Recipe

kale-omelet

Don’t Forget To Order Eggs!

Wash and coarsely chop kale until you have about 2 cups chopped kale. If you don’t have red kale, you can use other kale varieties in this, but they may need to be sauteed a bit longer.

Heat olive oil in non-stick 10″ frying pan, then saute chopped onion 2-3 minutes. Add kale and let it start to wilt.

Keep turning kale over as it wilts for 2-3 minutes, until it has reduced in size below the top of the pan.

Check the bottom of the pan to see if you need a bit more oil, the pour in beaten egg and top with grated cheese. Reduce heat and cook about 10 minutes, lifting the edges of the omelet with a plastic spatula and letting the uncooked portion run under.

When the omelet is almost completely cooked but still a bit wet-looking, flip one side over the other. Serves two happy breakfast eaters.
Ingredients:
5 eggs, beaten well
2 T chopped onion or red onion
1-2 tsp. olive oil (or more, depending on your pan)
3 oz. chopped kale (2 cups chopped kale. You could use other greens like chard, collards, spinach, or broccoli rabe.)
1/3 cup grated white cheese (I used a low-fat blend called pizza cheese which had Mozarella, Provolone, Romano, and Parmesan cheese)Instructions: 
Beat eggs with Spike seasoning in small bowl.
Heat olive oil medium high in non-stick 10″ frying pan. Add onions and saute about 2 minutes, until soft but not browned. Add kale all at once (it will be above the top of the pan.) Let kale wilt for a minute or two, then use a large turner to turn it over so it wilts evenly and reduces in size by at least half. This will take 2-3 minutes.
Check pan to see if you need more oil before you add the eggs, and add more if needed. Add eggs all at once, then immediately lower heat to low. Let omelet start to cook, and when you see firm edges, gently lift them with the turner and let the uncooked egg run under. Cook about 10 minutes, until eggs are mostly set but still wet looking. Then use turner and gently flip one half of omelet over onto the other half. Cook 1-2 minutes more if needed, then slide omelet out on to serving plate.

Organic Farming News

healthy-organi food delivery

Organic production may still represent only a small fraction of agricultural sales in the U.S. and worldwide, but it as been growing rapidly over the last two decades.

“According to the latest global census of farming practices, the area of land certified as organic makes up less than one percent of global agricultural land.”

— but it has grown more than threefold since 1999, with upwards of 37 million hectares of land worldwide now under organic cultivation. The Organic Trade Association forecasts steady growth of nine percent or more annually for organic agriculture in the foreseeable future.

But despite this growth, no one expects organic agriculture to top conventional techniques any time soon. The biggest hurdle for organics is the added cost of sustainable practices. “The cost of organic food is higher than that of conventional food because the organic price tag more closely reflects the true cost of growing the food,” reports the Organic Farming Research Foundation. “The intensive management and labor used in organic production are frequently (though not always) more expensive than the chemicals routinely used on conventional farms.”

However, there is evidence that if the indirect costs of conventional food production–such as the impact on public health of chemicals released into our air and water–were factored in, non-organic foods would cost the same or as much as organic foods.

Another challenge facing the organic sector is a shortage of organic raw materials such as grain, sugar and livestock feed. Without a steady supply of these basics, organic farmers can’t harvest enough products to make their businesses viable.
