Pick up location is at my home on The Hill; I’ll let you know the address in your confirmation email.

ROTATING TREATS

  • Chai “Biscotti” $2.50/ea it’s not quite biscotti, but it’s inspired by biscotti and made similarly, so that’s what I’m calling it…sprouted buckwheat tea cookies that are parbaked to ready to be frozen for later or enjoyed right away. You can pop them in your toaster or onto the stovetop to crisp them up to your liking and dip them into your coffee or tea, or use them as a base for any number of delicious concoctions (think layered desserts with something fruity and something creamy…
  • “Ladyfingers” $2.50/ea similar to biscotti in some ways, but made from sprouted quinoa and inspired by thoughts of the strawberries coming to my backyard soon. Top with fresh strawberries and coconut whip for a fabulous strawberry shortcake. Also a wonderful base for tiramisu, other fruit trifles, and so much more…
  • Carob Mint Drops (almond) $1 fresh local mint, sprouted almonds, dates, vanilla, and sea salt. Simplicity at its finest…want a real treat? Crumble these over banana (or whatever) ice cream.
  • Sweet and Savory Tahini Buckwheat Bars $4 lightly date-sweetened sprouted buckwheat bars with sprouted pepitas, carrots, freshly ground sprouted sesame tahini, and spices. Perfect to keep on hand for a quick to-go breakfast or a pre-workout or afternoon snack. I won’t go into all the health-promoting benefits of each and every ingredient in these bars, because the list would be a mile long…
  • Raw Savory Kale Chips $5/2-oz bag lacinato kale battered in a sprouted pumpkin chia veggie batter and dehydrated until crisp. Excellent for a healthy and satisfying on-the-go or hold-you-until-dinner snack. (limited number left)
  • Raw Savory Sprouted Buckwheat and Veggie Crackers $7.50/4-oz bag sprouted buckwheat, onions, chia seeds, sprouted pumpkin seeds, kale, carrots, and a touch of sea salt dehydrated until crisp. These crackers are the bomb as a snack with cashew cream cheese and sprinkled with chives. In the past, these have been used as pizza crusts and made in a triangular shape. For this batch, I think I’ll make them a little smaller and cut them in squares so they are sturdier. (limited number left)

HEAT AND EAT

  • Kitchari for cleanse $75/4-day (3 half gallons) $90/5-day (4 half gallons) plus jar deposits Kitchari is a soothing blend of mung Dahl and brown basmati rice, plus celery, carrots, and kale, mildly seasoned with turmeric, fresh ginger, and fresh lemon. I love it garnished with toasted coconut and I often add extra veggies; sometimes I add a splash of hot sauce. Cleansing with kitchari gives your body a rest while still keeping up your energy. It’s also a nice mental break from thinking about what you are going to eat! A minimum of 3 large jars, or 12 meals is required for special orders. If you would like a smaller portion, you can watch social media for extras from special orders, or you can get a group together to meet the minimum.
  • Baked Quiche $60/full $35/half flavor changes weekly/based on seasonal veggies and herbs available.
    • add 8-oz fermented cashew cream cheese $11
  • Take and Bake Sprouted Veggie Burgers $16/4-pack Whole food burger patties made from sprouted beans, grains, and veggies; mildly flavored so you can take them in the direction of your choosing. Add sprouted sourdough buns and a sauce, plus your own veggie toppings for a complete burger experience. Baking instructions on this page. Feel free to ask about the current flavor(s) available, or be surprised.

SOURDOUGH BREADS, BUNS, CRUSTS, AND FOCACCIA

  • Sprouted sourdough loaves hearty, but not too dense, loaves made from naturally fermented buckwheat and millet (or just buckwheat in some cases); these are whole food, nutrient dense loaves made from soaked and fermented grains for easier digestion and nutrient assimilation. The chia flax (buckwheat and millet) version is a bit more crusty and the buckwheat flax (buckwheat only) has a softer texture.
    • chia flax (buckwheat and millet; 1.2 teaspoons coconut sugar/loaf;) $10/loaf
    • buckwheat flax buckwheat-only breads have a softer crust and are made without chia seed. (1.2 teaspoons coconut sugar per loaf) $10

SPECIAL ORDER MUFFINS, CAKES, AND ROULADES

Some flavor additions may require an additional charge. Muffins have a balanced sweet flavor. You can specify minimally sweet which means 1/2 the normal for quinoa and date-only for buckwheat.
  • Sprouted Buckwheat or Quinoa Roulades 1/2 dozen $26 jelly roll-style, filled with healthy and delicious fillings such as date-sweetened nut or coconut frostings or fruit purees, cinnamon-fig, date-nut caramel, etc. Ask about current/seasonal flavor options; sample flavor options are listed on the bakery page. Some flavor additions may require an additional charge. You can specify minimally sweet which means 1/2 the normal for quinoa and date-only for buckwheat.

MEAL STARTER KITS AND EMBELLISHERS 

Purchase batters, sauces, condiments, and spice mixtures to transform simple ingredients into your own amazing creations. Ingredients and Instructions are available here. Generally purchased frozen. Defrost in refrigerator when ready to use/eat.

  • Saag Starter $6/4-oz jar Stir into steamed spinach, plus sautéed garlic and onion if you wish and enjoy and AMAZING dip to be served on its own, or with browned potatoes (saag aloo), or browned quiche cubes to be reminiscent of saag paneer. Go to the opening of the Boulder Farmers’ Market this Saturday and buy 2 lbs of spinach (many of the farmers wash it well before bringing it to the market which makes life easier) and chop it up. Sauté 1 chopped yellow onion and a few cloves of minced garlic in olive oil until the onion has softened, then add about 1 cup of water and the chopped spinach, cover, and bring to a boil for about 10 minutes or until the spinach cooked to your liking. Keep an eye on it while it’s cooking to make sure that there is still some water at the bottom of the pan. Stir in the saag starter and enjoy something fresh and delicious. You can choose to leave out the garlic and onion for an Ayurvedic version, or go totally local produce and use shallots and spring onions instead…wrap it up with naan or red lentil crepes/dosas, or serve as suggested above over brown basmati rice. Or eat it by the spoonful.
  • Red Lentil Coconut Curry Add In $9/12-oz jar a paste made from spices, ginger, garlic, tomato, coconut, and lemon that, when added to simple cooked red lentils with vegetables becomes a delightfully satisfying and nourishing stew. An all time favorite at Julia’s Kitchen! Specific Instructions available on this page. Also can be combined with the caramelized onion chutney and added to cooked chickpeas and veggies for a yummy chickpea tikka masala.

  • Quiche Batter $7.50/8-oz jar (makes 2 servings) or $15/pint (4-servings) a base of mung beans, olive oil, onion, garlic, and sea salt makes magic once baked into a quiche.
