It’s popular fare during the Mardi Gras/Carnival season that culminates on “Fat Tuesday” which falls on March 1st this year.

Red Lentil Dal

Dal is a layered dish with thousands of variations determined by everything from the availability of certain ingredients to family traditions. But amongst them all, two components are essential to dal: tender lentils and tempered spices. Soft-cooked lentils stewed in an aromatic broth full of onions, garlic, and ginger become the base of most dals. Tomatoes, potatoes, or other vegetables can be added as well, but those elements depend on the cook, the region, and the traditions that influence what goes in the pot. Our Indian Cuisine-themed weekly sale from February 17th – 23rd features organic red lentils, so it’s a great time to give this comforting dish a try!

Creole Jambalaya

Planning a Mardi Gras celebration? Our weekly sale from February 20th – 26th celebrates Creole cuisine and we think you’ll love this jambalaya recipe! It comes from a staff member that grew up in the South and has fond memories of the food and cultural traditions surrounding the holiday. This jambalaya is a bit soupier than some traditional versions of the dish, but this is the way her family always made it so that there was plenty of spicy broth to sop up with a crusty baguette.
