Beef and mushrooms are a classic pairing that’s easy to love. We’re happy to share it this week with local pasture-raised beef from Firsthand Foods, a variety of mushrooms (baby bella, white mushrooms and local shiitakes through Happy Dirt), and lots of fresh herbs to add nutrition and extra savory goodness. This sauté can be eaten alongside any of this week’s sides or crumbled over the white bean soup. Try it on a salad or in a tortilla for lunch. Reheat in a saucepan on the stovetop and savor every bite.

This soup is a GC classic made with local dandelion greens from Happy Dirt, celery, leeks and the queen of white beans – the cannellini, which are plump, creamy and full of flavor. For this version, we’re exited to be adding local green garlic from Red’s Quality Acre, which we’ll slice thinly add to the mix. We’ll slow simmer the beans with all the aromatics before adding in the greens at the end to bring all the flavors together. This soup is simple, nutritious, and delicious. Warm up gently in a pot on the stovetop and add a squeeze of lemon or some grated hard cheese if you like.

Dukkah enhances everything. It’s an Egyptian spice blend and the word literally means “to crush or to pound”. We’ll do exactly this with our custom blend of cumin seeds, coriander seeds, sesame seeds, hazelnuts and black pepper – all organic and full of flavor and micronutrients. We’ll add this to a local kale salad massaged in a lively vinaigrette with red and purple radish from Red’s Quality Acre, organic carrot and chopped Medjool dates, adding a touch of sweetness. The kale leaves will be fresh and glistening once dressed. Make yourself a one-bowl lunch with some quinoa and a dollop of beet hummus or serve with the beef sauté.

We’ll perfectly roast organic cauliflower florets to bring out that earthy caramelized flavor then toss with fresh herbs, lemon, organic olive oil, and Kalamata olives for an added punch of tanginess. To seal the deal on this fresh dish, we’ll top each container with chopped toasted almonds. Reheat in a saucepan and serve up with any of this week’s dishes or serve cold on top of some salad greens for a quick lunch.

We’ll pair quinoa, wild rice, fresh parsley and roasted local butternut squash with an abundance of local baby arugula from Red’s Quality Acre to create an earthy, sweet, and peppery quinoa dish. Quinoa and wild rice are both seeds, not grains, and wild ‘rice’ has almost twice the protein, fiber and b-vitamins as brown rice. The flavor, freshness and nutrient density of this dish is off the charts. Enjoy with all of this week’s dishes. Reheat (if desired) in a saucepan over low heat.

This hummus is so vibrant, creamy and super delicious. The sweetness of the local beets mingled with the tahini and chickpeas is superb. We’re topping the hummus with a drizzle of our organic Greek olive oil and za’atar for added flavor and nutrition – it’s a blend of herbs and sesame seeds originating from the Mediterranean region of the Middle East. Use as a classic dip for veg, spread on a rice cracker with avocado or enjoy alongside this week’s sides for a meal rich in flavor and color.

This is one of our all-time favorite soups – the comforting textures of the vegetables with the bold flavors of the aromatics are pure perfection. This soup is packed with vegetables – local kabocha squash, local green cabbage, and cauliflower sourced from Happy Dirt – that are simmered in a coconut broth with lemongrass, ginger, tomatoes, and organic cilantro, then finished with a touch of lime. The flavor is simply amazing. Reheat in a saucepan and serve with extra lime if desired.

Hi Rise Cornbread Pan Loaf – This is not the thin, dense cornbread historically known in the South. Instead, this bread takes loads of locally grown and milled cornmeal and pairs it with strong wheat flour to produce a loaf that has the volume and lightness of a sandwich bread but with the flavor and aroma of cornbread. Toasted up, this is a great bread for grilled cheese or a BLT to go along with your soup.

This gluten-free banana bread is moist, satisfying and sweet without the feeling of heaviness that comes with baked goods that are served up this time of year. So treat yourself right this week and have some slices on hand for when you want a sweet treat. Almond flour adds a nutty note and the spices blended with the banana is a match made in heaven. The bitter-sweet chocolate chips bring depth and chocolate-y goodness and the free-range eggs add much needed protein. The top GC-tip would be to warm up a slice in the oven and spread on some lemon cashew cream. This bread can be enjoyed for breakfast or as an afternoon snack. Time will stop.

We’ll first make a compote with organic cranberries and Cara Cara oranges, then blend it up with coconut milk and chia to make a creamy pudding that might just be our favorite one yet. It’s soothing to the stomach, energizing and packed with nutrition. The healthy fat from the coconut milk is so satisfying, while the vitamin C and other micronutrients from these native superfood berries will fortify you for the day. We’ll top each container with caramelized pecans, GC-style, made with just coconut oil and a touch of maple syrup. Eat anytime of day on its own or mix with a little granola for extra texture and crunch.

The first thing to note about this delicious new concoction is that it’s caffeinated, but due to the many unique properties of matcha, you’ll feel a calm alertness without the jittery effects you get from coffee or tea. Matcha is a Japanese shade-grown green tea powder that’s loaded with powerful antioxidants, called polyphenols, and many other bioactive compounds with various health benefits, such as improved cognitive function, collagen production and reduced stress. Because matcha green tea plants are grown in the shade, the leaves are very rich in chlorophyll, which naturally supports the detoxification pathways in the body. Matcha even has the reputation of aiding Zen monks in meditation. We’ll balance out the earthy flavor of the matcha with warming spices and hemp milk to create this spectacular beverage for your morning ritual. Warm it up on the stovetop, stirring, or simply shake it up and drink cold. (Hot tip: You could add it to a blender and whizz it up with half a banana to create an even more creamy and sustaining morning affair. This is Lizzie’s new morning obsession.)

If you’ve never had freshly made hemp milk, you’re in for a treat. Hemp milk is considered the best milk alternative for many reasons – it’s high in omega-3 fatty acids, essential minerals and protein while also being low in carbohydrates. And growing hemp is good for the planet, helping to regenerate the soil and purify the air – pretty amazing. Hemp milk has a slightly nutty flavor and a nice light and creamy texture. We’ll sweeten the hemp milk with dates and vanilla, then add raspberries and Terrasoul baobab powder for an extra boost of vitamin C and juiciness. Baobab fruit is a nutrient and fiber-rich superfood native to Africa and Australia with a tangy sherbet-like flavor. Serve cold with our granola for the perfect snack. Or, pour over your cereal of choice, add to oatmeal or use as the base of a smoothie or drink as is. The options are endless.

This creamy elixir is filled with earthy flavors and medicinal power that supports the immune system and reduces inflammation in the body. We’re so lucky to be getting freshly harvested turmeric from Laying Hen Farm in Hillsborough this year. Nikki plants turmeric for her husband Dave to use in their goat milk soaps, so we’re scooping up their extra abundance to bring you turmeric milk every week through the winter months. We’ll blend the turmeric with fresh ginger root to make a tea and blend it with a touch of cardamom, cloves and black pepper. (Did you know that there’s an anti-inflammatory compound called piperine in black pepper that enhances the body’s absorption of turmeric’s antioxidants by 2,000%? They’re a powerhouse pair!) This golden nectar is then mixed with a combination of our housemade cashew milk and coconut milk to create the perfect amount of creaminess. Add a touch of natural sweetener, such as honey or maple syrup, if you prefer a sweeter beverage. Gently reheat on the stovetop and drink in the soothing power of turmeric.

This tea is all about nourishing the nervous system and gladdening the heart. Skullcap is a restorative tonic for the nervous system. It settles the mind and body and can help regulate sleep patterns. It’s slightly astringent and the flavor has been compared to that of light green tea, although there is no caffeine of course. Wood betony is a tad sweet and lightly pungent with nervine qualities that soothes and calms, just like being by the ocean or a trickling stream. Lemon balm is known as the ‘JOY’ herb that uplifts the heart and brightens the spirit. And the fresh sweet sparkle of mint will provide the canvas for all the other herbs in this blend to rest into. Drink warm or cold anytime for an infusion of comfort.

We’ve created a divine beverage—energizing, bittersweet, fulfilling. Enjoy sipping in the morning as a better-than-coffee alternative. Cacao powder is loaded with antioxidants and minerals that nourish your body and feed your cells. Maca boosts energy and endurance, while the powerful Reishi mushroom, which grows on the bark of hardwood trees, especially oaks, supports the immune system, improves sleep, and lessens fatigue. This triad balances and supports the body so well. And we’ve upped the potency this week by adding Lion’s Mane, a shaggy white mushroom that grows on decaying hardwood, such as beech, sycamore and birch trees. While it’s most known for improving cognitive health and enhancing neuroplasticity, it has many other healing properties including supporting gut health and reducing inflammation. We don’t make this drink super sweet, so feel free to add extra sweetener, a dash of maple, a stir of honey, or a scoop of collagen powder for extra oomph. Shake it up then either serve cold over ice or heat it up on your stove top.

This soup has it all – sweetness, earthiness, vibrant color, curry spices and incredible textures from the sweet potato and kale. We’ll round out the flavor with ginger, leeks, and a touch of lime. To put it simply – this soup is simply bursting with flavor and good nutrition. And we’re sourcing local garnet sweet potatoes and green kale from Happy Dirt this week. Warm it up on the stovetop and enjoy.

We’ve got quarts of this soup for you to stash away when you need a deeply nourishing boost that only bone stock can provide. Simply defrost, reheat, and enjoy.
This soup was a staple in Cordon’s home when she was following the GAPS protocol for her family, which is a diet rich in foods that promote digestive health. The pairing of beef and green cabbage with paprika and thyme has a deeply satisfying simplicity. And we’re making a nourishing stock with local Firsthand Foods beef bones for the base of this soup to add gut healing and anti-inflammatory nutrients (not to mention, incredible flavor). Simply reheat and enjoy. Stir in a spoonful of yogurt or sour cream for extra goodness.

If you’ve yet to try our braised carrot dishes, now’s the time. It’s one of the true hidden gems at Goodness Cooks. This iteration features our classic braised carrots tossed in a delicious cilantro pesto that really pops, with organic local cilantro from Red’s Quality Acre, crushed sesame seed, white miso for earthiness, and a touch of lime to round it out. Adding this punchy pesto to the sweet and smooth-as-butter texture of the braised carrots creates quite the satisfying combo. Reheat gently in a saucepan with a dash of oil, over medium heat. Mix and match with any other dish on the menu.

We love these desserts after they’ve defrosted on the counter top for 15-30 minutes. The texture is just right.
This is a special version of our cashew dessert made with organic Cara Cara oranges sourced from Happy Dirt. Cara Cara oranges are related to blood oranges and you’ll see them in stores from late winter to spring. They have pink-ish red flesh and their flavor is extra sweet with notes of rose and berries. We’ll layer a toasted walnut and date crust at the bottom and top it with creamy orang-y bliss with a hint of cardamom. Not too sweet and only the best ingredients, so it’s a dessert you can feel good about. It’s a game changer in depth of flavor. One dessert is plenty for two to share after a meal or buy for just yourself and enjoy as you please. Eat cold right out of the fridge. And keep in mind you can keep these desserts in the freezer for months and defrost to enjoy anytime.
