What’s NEW at the Market?
Mio Wraps is commencing this week for three weeks only. So what is a Mio Wrap? This is a clever fusion of Japanese-Italian food styles created by Italian-born Daniele Mantovan and Emiko Doi. It is a buckwheat crepe in a cone crammed full of healthy vegetables. They use good oils – coconut oil with garlic oil, and they cook them in two steps – the buckwheat pancake first and it is then filled! They have a range of choices, all gluten free and include vegetarian and vegan options.
Daniele said that “it’s a complete meal in one wrap and eating healthily doesn’t have to be boring.”
Why Mio Wraps for only 3 weeks. Daniele and Emiko have agreed to fill the spot where Vietnamese Lotus usual are while Laura and Mal take a very well earned holiday overseas. Thanks Mio Wraps.
Pecans in Reusable Glass Jars!
We know our customers want to reduce plastic and recycle packaging whenever possible so Tweed River Pecans are now available in 300g jars.
The pecans are the same price per gram, but you pay $1 deposit on your jar which will be refunded when the jar is returned to Rob, at Spice Palace.
TRP’s large packets are also available but the jars let you know that we are listening and there is choice. A win/win for us and the planet. We really appreciate that many of our customers care for the environment and bring their own produce bags and carry bags as well as returning jars to Spice Palace or refilling their egg cartons at Woodland Valley Farm Stall.
What’s GREAT at the Market?
Kale is another leafy green that is abundant right now. So it is on special at Summit Organics for just $2 bunch this week. How do you enjoy your kale? I love kale chips! It is also delicious finely sliced and fried with onion as a base for poached eggs for a hearty breakfast.
Here is a delicious recipe for Kale and Coriander or Basil Pesto:
Kale and Coriander or Basil Pesto
1 bunch of kale
2 cups of fresh basil or fresh coriander or herb of your choice
½ cup of macadamia butter or 1/2 cup pecans
Juice from 2 freshly squeezed limes or lemons
Himalayan rock salt and pepper to taste (and fresh garlic cloves if you are a garlic fan).
Put all ingredients into the food processor, and mix until you reach a creamy and smooth consistency.
