All menu items are GLUTEN FREE and DAIRY FREE, unless we specify otherwise. We use filtered reverse osmosis water and Himalayan Sea Salt. (We err on the less salty side, so please add more salt to your taste if needed.) Organic and local ingredients are always listed. Enjoy!
Most items are offered as a pint or quart (which is 2 pints). If you order 2 pints of a dish instead of the quart option, we will package them individually in pints, assuming that you prefer this.
We use boneless chicken thighs to make these tender and delicious skewers that have the perfect balance of tangy and sweet. They’re marinated overnight in ginger, garlic, lemon, cumin, olive oil and local honey, then skewered and broiled until slightly charred. These skewers pair with pretty much anything and everything. Enjoy alongside any of this week’s dishes. This dish can be reheated on low heat in a pan with a little olive oil or in a 350-oven on a sheet pan.
$8.95 for 1/2 lb (2 skewers)

This soup is a GC classic made with local dandelion greens, celery, leeks and the queen of white beans – the cannellini, which are creamy and full of flavor. Dandelion greens are full of potent antioxidants that reduce inflammation in the body and promote liver health. 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 food. Warm up gently in a pot on the stovetop.

Broccoli is a true nutritional powerhouse and this recipe is one of our favorite ways to enjoy it. We lightly steam the broccoli to maintain a subtle crunch and mix it with chopped organic apple and a coconut yogurt dressing, giving it a hint of tangy sweetness. Toasted sunflower seeds are added for their nutty flavor and extra boost of nutrients. This dish pairs perfectly as a side with chicken and rice. Add a drizzle of tahini sauce for good measure. No need to reheat – just open the container and enjoy.

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 kale salad massaged in a lively vinaigrette with local radish 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 turmeric rice and tahini sauce or eat alongside the chicken skewers.

Each batch of basmati rice will be tossed in turmeric that’s lightly toasted in coconut oil, transforming them into golden grains with sweet earthy tones. We’ll then sprinkle the rice with black nigella seeds, which have a unique nutty flavor that is hard to describe, in the best way. The chicken, soup, broccoli and kale salad are all perfect to eat with this delicious rice, so make sure to order enough. It’s best to reheat with a tablespoon or two of water in a saucepan, at a low heat, stirring often.

There’s something so comforting about simplicity and our version of red lentil dal, or masoor dal, is simplicity at its best. Red lentils are mild and earthy and are a staple of the Indian household. We’ll temper the spices, tomato and aromatics in our house-made pastured ghee and stir it into a perfectly cooked pot of red lentils, spinach and cilantro to make a dal with truly vibrant flavors. Dole some out on top of the rice and serve as a light lunch alongside the kale salad and dollop of yogurt.

This creamy, flavorful tahini sauce is bursting with green color from fresh local herbs and packed with antioxidants from the organic Greek Sparta Kefalas olive oil. It’s one of our most popular “extras” because it goes with everything. Use it as a dip for the chicken skewers or drizzle it over the kale salad and turmeric rice. You can also use it to dress a salad or add flavor and sustenance to any vegetable, making this a handy item to have when you’re needing to fuel up but don’t have much time. Stock up!

Chocolate avocado pudding – say what? Yep, it’s a thing. A good thing. It’s decadent and full of chocolatey flavor and smooth texture. The avocado provides a creamy richness without you even knowing it’s even in there. In Brazil, avocado cream is often eaten as a dessert with sugar and lime, and in Morocco it’s whizzed up in a smoothie with almonds, dates and milk. The bittersweet richness of this chocolatey dessert is balanced with a layer of light cashew cream and a tart raspberry sauce. This dessert speaks the language of love. Enjoy.

We’re getting first of the season organic peaches from South Carolina to make our quinoa porridge this week. It’s delightfully creamy with the perfect amount of sweetness, topped with a layer of fresh stewed peach compote and crumbled almonds. Peaches are the quintessential summer fruit and summon up reverence for the bounty the earth offers up in the warmer seasons. Quinoa is soothing on the system as well as nutrient dense and protein rich, making it a wonderful superfood to start the day. Eat for breakfast with a sprinkle of granola and a dollop of our nut butter or enjoy as-is. You can warm it up in a saucepan, stirring in the peaches and nuts, but it’s equally delicious eaten cold.

We’re harvesting fresh mint and lemon balm for this exceptionally refreshing and bone-deep nourishing tea. Lemon balm has a bright, herbaceous, citrus-y flavor that will balance the minerality of the nettles. We’ll add dried oatstraw, which has strong earthy tones and is known to soothe the nervous system, and a touch of licorice for a subtle sweet note. Once you get started on this stuff you might find you want it daily as you will instantly feel infused with all the minerals and vitamins vibrating within these potent herbs. Enjoy this infusion cold and add a sprig of mint for extra pleasure. Use it as a base to make a morning berry smoothie for your kids, or warm it up and enjoy all the nurturing benefits from wrapping your hands around a warm mug of tea.

As the weather is changing, we’ll now be offering you our signature chai tea without the coconut milk, so you can drink it warm or cold. This way you can also choose which kind of milk you’d like to add. To make yourself an iced latte, just add 1/3 cup of milk or creamer (or more!) to 1 cup of chai tea and serve over ice. You can always heat up your latte instead, it’s up to you! This chai is loaded with anti-inflammatory and blood sugar balancing herbs and heat from the ginger and pepper to ignite the digestive fires. For extra nutrition, try adding a scoop of collagen peptides for skin and bone health. (Our chai will be only lightly sweetened with honey, so please feel free to add more sweetener of your choice if that’s your preference.)

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 pour over ice or heat it up on your stove top.

We’ve got pints and quarts of this incredible seasonal soup. Make it last by grabbing some for your freezer!
~Lemon balm and zucchini is in full glorious bloom locally right now, and this same week last year we debuted this creamy seasonal soup. Another trip around the sun and here we are – cooking it up again! The lemon balm is from Poppysol Farm in Chatham County and zucchini is from Small Potatoes Farm in Chapel Hill, so lets just say the flavor and nutrients will be incredible. The bright green leaves of lemon balm have a slight citrus aroma, with notes of mint and lemongrass and are known for uplifting the spirits and supporting immunity. The subtle sweetness of zucchini, creaminess from the potatoes and anise-like flavor from the dill make this the quintessential springtime soup, capturing the essence of this bountiful season with every bite. It can be enjoyed warm or cold with a dollop of yogurt or sour cream and/or a swirl of olive oil.~

We’re bringing back this delicious recipe from Sarah Britton of My New Roots. She’s a holistic nutritionist, chef and cookbook author and we just love everything she does. Goodness Cooks’ dishes are often inspired by other people’s recipes and then we tweak and add things and fiddle with them until they become our own, but we’re doing this recipe by the book. Funny thing is we both saw this recipe and had bookmarked it to tell each other we should try it for GC. Some things are just meant to be! So here it is – creamy white lentils blended with caramelized onions, balsamic vinegar and tahini, topped with our flavorful Sparta Kefalas olive oil.
