Menu for Rillito Park Farmers Market Sunday 1/9/22, 9 am - 1 pm


Dear Green Heart Friends,

We welcome you to '22! Hopefully, your holidays held some rest for you, and some joyful moments as well.  Hopefully, you are well, and feeling encouraged for the new year.  I know I'm rested and ready!  (And I got my office MUCH more organized, and the floor clear of moving boxes😁).

This is good because Ted and I will work without our usual helpers (Cathy & Leila) until next week.  Hence, a particular part of the menu may seem "abbreviated" - well, that's why.  Ted will make 2 soups this week since it's the perfect time of year for hearty soups. (Odile returns to Rillito this Sunday, to help me in the booth :-)

I will make a Stir-fry recipe from Forks over Knives.  The peanut sauce is light, with fresh lime juice; it's not the peanut sauce that I usually make.  There's no fresh ginger, but there is some garlic.  The vegetables (sliced Napa cabbage, red & yellow bells, snow peas) make a colorful dish. I will add sliced tempeh (I got some without barley, so it's GF), and organic brown jasmine rice on the side (you'll put your stir-fry over the rice when you heat and eat :-).

I will also make the Sun-dried Tomato and Asparagus Quiche.  I may not have time this week to also make a GF crust - we shall see how the orders come in.

Today Kathy Kirchner (My Rawsome Foods) and I visited Midtown Market & Deli at the invitation of Tanya Barnett, who is opening this vegan establishment at the NW corner of 5th and Rosemont.  Of course delays in the construction, remodeling and permitting process, so the Grand Opening scheduled for Jan 17th will instead be in February.  Yes, some of our food will be available there :-). A number of vegans are pulling together to get this venture going, and it's exciting!

Thank you in advance, as always, for your order.  Please try to have your order in by Thursday evening.  And please know that you are appreciated here!
