Green Heart Menu for Rillito Park Farmers Market Sunday 12/11, 9 am - 1 pm

 

Dear Green Heart Friends,

Thank you for coming out in the wet soggy last Sunday (if, in fact, you did ;-).  Yes, it was super-wet, but no rain in the forecast for this Sunday morning!  I was frazzled for more than one reason, but one was:  #deathfreefoodie (actual name Hannah Hernandez) was to come to Rillito to spotlight vegan options/vendors.  Nick, the manager, had set it up in November.  Leila and I worked (too) hard prepping lots of stuff for her to "tout" on social media (she has 10K vegan followers here).  Once I got to Rillito, I was informed they had called her and told her NOT to come in the rain; come this Sunday instead when the weather would be more pleasant.  Arghhhhhhh!!!  Oh well.  Kathy Kirchner (My Rawsome Foods) said "that gives us another week to practice".  "PRACTICE?!" I bellowed, "I don't need practice!" 😜

This week:

Stuffed Red Bell Peppers (organic)

They're stuffed with Mexican Rice (organic brown basmati, pinto beans, cumin and other seasonings).  And they're red, which is festive for December.

Also:


Chickpea-Potato Tagine 
(which you can read in the "pirated" photo from FOK 😁)

Garlic and ginger, yes; onions, no. A Moroccan dish of gold potatoes, chickpeas, fresh tomatoes, seasonings (Ras al Hanout).

If you are new to this email list, just email me back with what you'd like to order, and I will have it ready for you to pick up Sunday at Rillito.  You can pay for your order when you pick it up. (The menu is the attachment.)

Thank you in advance for your order, and please try to have your order in Thursday evening.

We are actually  a bit ahead with our Rainforest Cake shipping; let me know if we can ship a cake to someone for you.  Otherwise, you can pick them up for yourself at the market🎄

See you Sunday!

THANKSGIVING 2022 MENU

 

The Entree is Roasted Butternut Squash stuffed with Sausage & Cornbread StuffingWe use butternut squash (no acorn) as Ted holds this squash in highest regard for flavor. I make the organic cornbread for the stuffing from scratch: GF, whole-grain, no added fat.  Ted will make our delicious sausage – GF & no added fat (pinto beans, oat flour & seasonings).  This is delicious topped with the Shallot Mushroom Gravy.  One squash is cut in half, and with the stuffing, yields 2 servings.  You may also order additional containers of stuffing.  This is SOS-free and soy-free.

1 full squash w/stuffing $32. (2 servings). ½ squash w/stuffing $16.

Additional 16 oz container of stuffing $10 (our soup-size container)

 

White Wine Shallot Mushroom Gravy, made w/o fat. (Rice milk base) GF  16 oz containers. Flavored with sage and thyme.  I begin by making vegetable  broth from scratch. (Can be ordered w/o mushrooms).  16 oz $11 (our soup-size container)

 

Creamy Pumpkin Cheesy Sauce:   Made of pureed potatoes, fresh roasted pumpkin, soaked cashews, and a lot of seasonings, but no oil.  It is good on ANYthing:  vegetables, mashed potatoes, millet loaf, squash – you can’t go wrong! Our soup-size container:  $12.

 

Garlic Mashed Potatoes:  the garlic is all steamed and so very mild - I will mix rice milk and nutritional yeast with the Yukon Gold organic potatoes -- NO Earth Balance. (You may add your own if you wish :) Our soup-size container serves 2 $11

 

Fresh Cranberry Sauce w/crushed pineapple, fresh orange and apple. Gently sweetened w/agave. 16 oz containers (our soup-size containers) $12

 

Alternate entrees:

Fig Balsamic Holiday Loaf: 

A festive combination of flavors (and no mushrooms) and textures:  sweet potatoes, lentils, walnuts, rolled oats, and yes, dried Mission figs, seasoned with onion, garlic, celery, Dijon, tomato paste, tamari and balsamic vinegar.

A full loaf serves 8.  $45. 

Mini-loaf (the size of our Banana Walnut Bread) $18.

 

Seitan Corned Beef (the whole loaf) This is what I make for the Reuben sandwiches.  One of our “regulars” orders it and says it’s so much better than seitan she has found in the store.  It is delicious w/o gravy, but you could certainly put the gravy on it, and have it with the Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Brussels Sprouts, etc.  The loaf serves 8.  It also keeps well in the refrigerator for more than a week, and yes, you can freeze it.  $38 for the loaf.

 

Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Cinnamon Pumpkin w/Pecans & Pomegranate.  The name says it all.  SOS-free.  This side dish is beautifully colorful, and has a nice contrast of ingredients.  Our soup-size container - $10 (enough for 2 servings)

 

You may also order containers of our Cashew Cheez Spread, which is great on crackers, sandwiches, etc.  4 oz or 8 oz containers. 4 oz $6./  8 oz $10

 

Black Bean Greek Olive Mushroom Walnut Tapenade, also excellent on crackers or veggies. This has been a favorite in my family since I started making it in the early ‘90’s; my sister requested it for her wedding reception in the late ‘90’s.  Our soup-size container $16.

 

In 2019 PETA  awarded Green Heart's Tofu Pumpkin Pie as one of the Top 10 Vegan Pumpkin Pies.  But we all know that ALL the pies are yummy ;-)

In Los Angeles, my bakery provided the premium pies to Whole Foods & Wild Oats, among many other stores.  (In 1998, everyone thought it was “crazy” that a pie cost $13.99; ahhhh, the good old days.)

 

Silken Tofu Pumpkin Pie w/organic spelt crust. 9-inch deep-dish $32. If you need GF, I can make an oat flour crust – which is not a shaped pastry crust.

There is no fat in the pumpkin filling; there is a small amount of coconut oil in the spelt crust (most fat is replaced with rice milk and the agave sweetener).  The oat crust has no fat. Also Pumpkin Mini-pies (as I have each week at the farmers market) in spelt crust OR order with oat crust:  $6.50

 

Organic Apple Pie in organic spelt crust, lattice top.  9-inch deep-dish $35.  

 

Pear Cranberry Upside Down Cake is delicious and beautiful.  Made w/o any added fat, not too sweet.  10-inch    $32.

 

Pecan Pie:  organic spelt crust. 9-inch deep-dish  $35

GF Pecan Tarts:  These can be individual size (5”) as I have at the market $7.50 Also, 9-inch or 11-inch. Prices TBD

 

Pumpkin Pecan Uncheescake:  as in the photo; our tofu pumpkin uncheesecake decorated w/pecans around the top edge.  6-inch $30 (serves 6). 10-inch $40 (serves 10). Please note the top can “crack” as there is no added fat – this is not a “flaw”.

 

Chocolate Pumpkin Uncheesecake.  GF, no added fat.  Silken tofu base for the chocolate mousse, which is spread on top of the (silken tofu-based) pumpkin uncheesecake.  6-inch $35 (serves 6)   10-inch $45 (serves 10)

 

 

Thank you!
