Menu for Rillito Park Farmers Market Sunday 2/26/23, 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Dear Green Heart Friends,

I hope you are staying WARM & DRY this chilly Wednesday!  And I hope you did not lose power in all the wind!

First, the wedding cake from last week:

The bottom and top tiers were red velvet cake; the middle tier was organic chocolate w/fresh raspberries between the layers; it was all frosted in cream cheez "buttercream".  That frosting can be unstable, and so I spent a lot of time on it, and fortunately, it set up and stabilized very well.  So -- all that work (Tues, Wed, Thurs), and then in several minutes, I added their chosen flowers -- which is what "makes" the cake, at least as far as its appearance.  They had wisely chosen silk hydrangeas with the wedding designer because when I interviewed the floral dept at Safeway last summer (when the cake was ordered) to find out what choice of blue and lavender flowers would be available February 16th, I was told, "not much".  And they were so fortunate to get a beautiful day last Thursday (they were worried last Tuesday & Wednesday); their ceremony was outside just before sunset at La Mariposa.

This week:

Mushroom Ragout over Garlic Mashed Potatoes.  As Leila likes to point out, "Where can you get vegan mashed potatoes in Tucson?"  And we like to offer them with the mushroom ragout; you can order the garlic mashed a la carte if you prefer.

I have been searching for a good photo of our Roasted Veggie Lasagna, and I can't find one -- huh?  Apparently, I have not remembered to photograph it, after it's cut and in its containers. Here is a photo of it on the dinner table in San Miguel de Allende, when I made it years ago for friends there:

(Note to self:  take a picture this week! :-)

Thank you, in advance, for your order....and for your patience with the parking.  One of our regulars has found parking every week by parking in the first row, as soon as she enters the parking lot (from 1st, not the back entrance).  I have her permission to pass along this info...

See you Sunday, and fingers crossed, the weather will be bearable or even beautiful.

In health,

Green Heart Bakery 💚

GF Roasted Veggie Lasagna w/Puttanesca Sauce

This is the “ no eggplant” version.  The cashew cheez spread we make will be used throughout.  Between the layers of Tinkyada organic brown rice lasagna noodles there will be roasted zucchini, sliced roasted red bells, spinach, broccoli, and a “ground beef” that we make out of lentils and beets.  Still with our oil-free pesto.  And Ted makes the puttanesca sauce, which is a marinara kicked up with capers, shallots, and minced Kalamata olives.

Topped with a small amount of soy-free mozzarella. (GF, soy-free, no added oil) $13.00.

Mushroom Ragout on Garlic Mashed Potatoes

The mashed potatoes are made without oil/fat: organic Yukon Gold potatoes steamed with garlic cloves and mashed with almond milk.  The ragout:  crimini, shiitake, portobella mushrooms simmered in broth, sherry, seasoned, and garnished with parsley.

They contain lentils, brown rice, black beans, GF bread crumbs and onions and seasonings (cumin & sage). You will heat them up in a pan on the stove. Can be eaten on a bun (let me know if you need a Dave’s Killer Bun), or by itself. These keep beautifully in the freezer; I kept several over 6 mos! (GF, SF, no added fat) 2 patties $7.
