Octopus Stew

Octopus Stew

Octopus. One of those ingredients you perhaps love when someone does it 'properly', ie when you don't cook it. Does it end up too rubbery? Not sure how to cook it? Not sure why it's awesome? Octopus grows fast and has a short life cycle, making it a great sustainable choice when procured locally (watch for frozen imports, especially baby octopus). The problem with Octopus is that people often end up with chewy, unpleasing textures when cooking it too long or not long enough. If you were to … [Read more...]

Cracking Cruciferous Soup

Cracking Cruciferous Soup

It's like a meal title from a Dr Seuss book, and it's cracking in more ways than taste.. How's 20 minutes in the making and $14 dollars to feed 4 people a delicious organic meal. Soothing, restorative and warming. I love the 'stick mix' method of soup making when you're strapped for time - You don't need to chop anything with precision, as it's all about to be puréed. This soup forgives you, just get everything in the pan already and enjoy! What you'll need 50g butter (or coconut oil if … [Read more...]
