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.

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.
