I hope you are enjoying this cozy wet weekend!
The menu is up and you can click here to see it. You’ll find all the usual suspects – quiche, veggie pancake, and dosa batters, cashew cream cheese, add-ins for red lentil coconut curry and golden smoothies, bakery batters, and sauces/condiments which I consider to be my “product line” (in development – more to come I hope!). These items, and of course sourdough breads and special order muffins, roulades, and tortes are available week-to-week.
Specials for this coming week are almost raw carob brownies (carob powder is roasted) which you’ve seen before and Sweet and Savory Tahini Buckwheat Bars. The latter is a new one. I’ve been keeping various flavors of raw buckwheat granola bars on hand in my freezer for when I don’t have a chance to sit down for a meal before running out the door. They have been awesome as a quick pre-breakfast snack on busy mornings or between meal snack when I need something light yet satisfying to keep me energized for a hike or just getting through the afternoon. On the savory side, the burgers available this coming week are sprouted lentil and millet or sprouted black eyed pea and rice.
I did test out my idea to combine the caramelized onion chutney with the red lentil coconut curry add in to make sprouted chickpea masala and was so happy with the result! Soak and sprout some chickpeas, then cook them and pop some in the freezer so you can be prepared for one of those days when you want a home-cooked meal and need it to be quick.
- 3 cups of cooked chickpeas
- 3-4 cups of mixed cooked veggies (leftover or freshly cooked; even frozen if you must)
- 4-oz jar of caramelized onion chutney
- 12-oz jar of the curry add in
- emptied 12-oz jar filled with water three times
- Voila – heat and serve with rice, quinoa, cauliflower rice, naan, dosa wraps or whatever you like!
My next thought is that the chipotle aioli mixed with a little tomato paste might just make a fabulous sugar free spicy ketchup…I will keep you posted.
Have a happy Sunday; don’t be sad if it rains all day. That’s just a perfect excuse to really relax:)
