In Cordon’s family, this is known as “Granny Snider’s Chicken” after her great-grandmother and has been a staple of family meals on her mother’s side for longer than she’s been alive. Her grandmother, lovingly called Mamama, must have made it hundreds of times for her children and grandchildren, so this dish is dedicated to her. It’s slow cooked in a tangy sweet mixture of lemon, vinegar, mustard and pastured butter until the chicken is so very tender and is always eaten over rice. You’ll see why this dish is a tradition. Heat up in a saucepan or in an oven-safe container in a 350-degree oven.

Red beans, black beans, coconut milk, garlic, allspice, peppers and cinnamon are all ingredients found in Caribbean island cooking and bring a warming and earthy vibe to this nourishing soup. The beans will slow cook with aromatics and spices before adding in the tomatoes, coconut milk and collards for acidity, sweetness and textural green goodness. For the final touch, we’ll stir in roasted local shisito peppers to add the perfect peppery undertone. This soup exemplifies the turning of the season with first of fall local collard greens from Happy Dirt and last of summer shisito peppers. Warm up in a pot on the stovetop and enjoy.

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 organic sweet onions from Happy Dirt, balsamic vinegar and tahini, topped with our flavorful Sparta Kefalas organic olive oil. Spread onto pita, cut-up veg and rice crackers or dollop onto any lunch or dinner plate for extra goodness.

We start by slowly simmering a nourishing vegetable broth with fresh ginger and turmeric, herbs, kombu seaweed and two medicinal herbs, oatstraw and nettles. It’s an infusion of the earth’s natural goodness. We’ll use this broth as the base for a creamy soup of butterkin squash (a local pumpkin and butternut squash hybrid), hemp cream, and extra turmeric and ginger for earthy depth. The fennel and squash bring sweet freshness and the hemp seeds add a nutty richness. Each soup will be topped off with a sprinkle of hemp seeds, a small dusting of Gochugaru chili flake, and fresh cilantro. This soup is light and airy and can be sipped on from a cup, chilled or warmed up. You can add chopped greens, barbecue chicken, or rice to your bowl for extra sustenance. You’ll feel revitalized, energized and replenished with every sip.

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. Or, serve over a bowl of the rice and greens for extra satisfaction.

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 is a clean, calming and nourishing elixir to be enjoyed heated up or chilled at any time of day.

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 cashew 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.) **We’re upgrading our matcha moving forward to Jade Leaf’s ceremonial grade Teahouse Edition for a more vibrant beverage with a sweeter note and even more nutrition. They work directly with a grower’s collective in Kyoto to offer their premium quality matcha.

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.

Grab an 8oz to thaw and jazz up your weekly meals! Just stir in some water or olive oil to thin as desired and you’re good to go.
This sauce was inspired by our long time customer, Brenna, who we’re lucky to see every week at the Goodness Cooks pick-up. She shared with us a recipe for a sauce that she loves to have on hand but is too busy to make every week. Well, we loved it, too! And we’re bringing you our version of her “green sauce” made with local organic cilantro from Happy Dirt and Fair Trade organic avocados. It’s bright and punchy with a smooth, creamy texture that’s so satisfying. She recommends using it as a salad dressing (thin it out a bit with some olive oil), baking fish or roasting potatoes with it, or just drizzling it over anything for added flavor and nutrition. Try using it as a marinade for a quick chicken bake or stirring it into a pot of beans. The options are endless! Enjoy right out of the fridge.
