We’ll garnish each soup with a gremolata of roasted cauliflower, lemon zest, dill and parsley. Reheat gently in a saucepan.

This dish is unfussy, earthy goodness at its best and has been a staple in our kitchens recently with all the beautiful local kale growing in abundance. We’ll sauté local green kale cook to perfection when sautéed in sizzling garlic with a bit of lemon zest and juice. These greens are so easy to digest as they’re cooked with healthy fat and simple flavors. And almost 4 bunches of kale will cook down into one quart, so each container will be bursting with nutrition. Enjoy with the beet salad and quinoa for a vegan plate serve with the pork meatballs for a low carb meal. We also like to warm these greens up with a fried egg on top for a quick nutritious meal. Lightly reheat in a saucepan, stirring until warm.

This salad has it all. We pair local red beets, golden beets and sweet golden raisins – plumped up with red wine vinegar – with the most incredible pistachio and pumpkin seed pesto dressing made with our organic Greek olive oil, giving it a nice crunch and uniquely flavorful nutty goodness. The beets are peeled and finely julienned raw and tossed with the dressing, which makes for a salad that gets even better with time. Serve this salad cold alongside a bowl of soup with meatballs or make a vegan plate with some kale and quinoa.

The dish is filled with freshness and zing. It’s light, herby and and bright on the palate. The crunch of the fresh local cucumber and shredded cabbage combined with the fresh nuttiness of the quinoa, fresh herbs, and our signature sesame lime dressing is superb. For extra goodness, we’ll top each container with cashews roasted with a touch of gochugaru chili, lime zest and honey. You’ll feel so nourished eating this with a few shiitake pork meatballs and a side of beet salad. Sometimes it’s the simple pleasures in life that make all the difference. Serve this cold with everything on this week’s menu.

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 and add a touch of blue spirulina for extra nutrition and bold indigo color. Serve cold with our tahini orange granola for the perfect breakfast or snack. You can also pour over your cereal of choice, add to oatmeal or your nighttime herbal tea, or use as the base of a smoothie. The options are endless.

It has many names, from Kardade in Egypt to Agua de Jamaica in Mexico. This is true flower power goodness! It can be enjoyed hot or cold and is especially refreshing with a few ice cubes and mint leaves stirred in.

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’ll roast organic cauliflower and carrots until they are perfectly browned, then sprinkle each batch with fresh cilantro and our housemade dukkah to create a dish we’re certain you’ll love. 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 crushed hazelnuts, black peppercorns and cumin, coriander, and sesame seeds – all organic and full of flavor and micronutrients. This is one of our very favorite cooked veg dishes, so don’t miss it. Reheat in a pan on the stovetop with a bit of oil or in the oven in an oven-safe dish.

Any soup made from a pulse – lentil, bean, or split pea – is called a ‘dal’ in India. This version of dal is made with organic green lentils and has a wholesome and earthy taste and texture. They’re a great source of plant nutrition filled with protein, fiber and minerals. We’ll simmer the lentils with local sweet potato and and baby kale from Maple Spring Farms, then stir in cilantro, coconut milk and all the toasted spices and aromatics.

These golden pots of umami goodness are going to go fast! Defrost 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 onions, 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.

This rice is the foundation of any healthy and satisfying meal. Defrost and then warm up in a saucepan with a dash of water.
Swiss chard is a mild tasting green that is deliciously sweet and earthy. It’s in the beet family and when cooked turns everything pink. We’ll sauté shallots, ginger, and garlic with local organic rainbow chard leaves from Faithfull Farms then fold it into hot fluffy rice to create a comforting and warming dish that goes with everything on the menu this week. It’s the perfect way to get in your daily greens and a great base for so many different meals. Reheat in a saucepan with a bit of water until warm and serve with the barbecue chicken or red beans.

These beans are the BEST. We’ve got pints for you to enjoy anytime – just cook up some rice and serve with these hearty, flavorful red beans with lots of local veg.
There are many types of red beans that are cooked all over the world, but this week we’re serving up the red kidney bean, which is said to have originated in Peru eight thousand years ago. Kidney beans are a good source of iron and micronutrients, such as copper, folate and molybdenum, as well as fiber and antioxidants. We’ve joked that kidney beans have a bad rap from the notoriously bland three bean salads that were popular years ago, so we’re hoping to dispel that with our version of a classic pot of red beans done right. While it’s not true Cajun or Caribbean style cooking, we’ll use the ‘holy trinity’ of pepper, onion and local Faithfull Farms celery, as well as cacao for depth and to balance out the ancho chili. Serve over the rice + greens and add a fried egg for good measure. Simply warm up in a pot on the stove and dig in.
