- Class Recipes
- June 16th, 2015
Vicki’s recipes go way beyond your standard nut and seeds tastings…from homemade mustard to a flavorful curry mix.
Emily shared some cost-effective, simple recipes using five ingredients or less. Tasty and for the taste buds and the eyes.
These are quick and easy summer salads, great for potlucks or picnics.
Cody from our produce department gave us some great ideas for using up those spring and early summer veggies. He also shared some great salad dressing and vinaigrette recipes. Thanks Cody!
The bulk aisle has a wide variety of grains available…but how to use them? Stefanie Hailperin shared some of her summer favorites. Some gluten free options and they’re all vegetarian friendly.
Lentils…the most delicious legume in the world. Well, that may be up for debate, but they certainly are versatile. Here are four recipes from our Thursday night class all about the Mighty Lentil.
If you’re a bacon lover, these are the recipes for you. Emily shared these with us last Thursday during our weekly class at the Co-op. What I learned, in a nutshell…everything tastes better with bacon (though maybe not for a vegetarian.).
- How-to: Grind-Your-Own Nut Butter
- February 17th, 2015
Jenn, our bulk buyer here at the Co-op, took some time to show off our nut grinders (almond and peanut) and explains how to use them.
- Freshness: you can’t get a fresher nut butter
- No additives, just peanuts or almonds
- Add-your-own mix-ins: honey, salt, raisins, cinnamon…
- Portion control: take as much or as little as you like
- Delightfully delicious
- Compost at the Co-op
- January 23rd, 2015
The Co-op deli has been composting in the back for well over a year, diverting 27 tons of waste from the landfill. Just this week, we drilled new holes in the garbage area, so we could compost in the seating area, too. Take note of the change and we’ll report back on how much waste we’re turning into soil, instead of into the landfill. Where’s it going? Full Circle Organics has a composting facility in Good Thunder.
