Fish Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw

Fire up the grill and take your tastebuds on a summer vacation with these tasty fish tacos! You’ll find many of the ingredients in our weekly sale display from July 13th – 19th, including local, organic All Souls Tortilleria corn tortillas. The Mahi Mahi featured in the sale comes to us from Orca Bay, which specializes in sustainably harvested seafood from responsible fisheries. This recipe will help you quickly pull it together and the slaw can be assembled a day or two in advance for quicker meal prep on a busy weeknight!

Summer Rolls

The summer solstice is just around the corner and we think these summer rolls are a perfect way to welcome the new season. This recipe is extremely versatile, so feel free to use any fresh, colorful summer veggies and herbs you happen to have on hand. If tofu isn’t your thing, feel free to sub in your favorite cooked protein. Our weekly sale from June 1st – 7th features a handful of the ingredients listed, making this one easy on the budget, too! If you don’t plan to serve the rolls right away, try rolling them in plastic wrap until you’re ready to eat. This will prevent the rolls from becoming soggy or sticking together. Other key tips are to avoid over-moistening the wrappers and avoid over-filling. Your first few are bound to be a bit clunky, but you’ll get the hang of it quickly.

 

 

Jambalaya

Jambalaya is a dish that brings together West African, French, and Spanish influences all into one colorful, flavorful dish. It’s popular fare during the Mardi Gras/Carnival season that culminates on “Fat Tuesday” which falls on February 21st this year. Our weekly sale from February 16th – 22nd celebrates the traditional flavors of Mardi Gras, so it’s a perfect time to try this one-pot comfort food wonder! 

Chili

The Big Game is upon us and regardless of your sports fan status, we think you’ll love this hearty chili recipe. It’s a simple, one-pot meal that features a handful of ingredients from the weekly sale display from February 8th – 14th, so it’s easy on the budget. Using dried beans requires a little more advanced preparation (soaking) and a longer cooking time, but dried beans are much more economical and the longer cook time allows a deep, rich flavor to develop.  Cook up an extra-large pot and freeze the leftovers for a busier weeknight. You’ll be so glad you did!
