At Natural Grocers, we’ve always been huge advocates for eating more vegetables, so the next time you’ve got the grill fired up for meat or meat alternatives, why not grill whatever fresh vegetables you have in the fridge? Vegetables take little time to cook, they’re the perfect candidates for grilling, and the options are almost endless. It’s an easy and delicious way to eat your veggies!
Broccolini, a hybrid of broccoli and Chinese broccoli, a leafy vegetable, has a slightly milder flavor compared to the broccoli most of us are used to. When steamed and brightened up with lemon zest, fresh lemon juice, and Parmesan cheese, it’s delightful to the taste buds. This is an easy recipe to prepare and it’s so good that it may just become your new favorite!
Bored with your weeknight meals? Try adding a delicious flavor-packed sauce to spruce up almost anything on the menu—without adding much extra time to your night. Chimichurri is delicious on chicken, fish, steak, tempeh, tofu, beans, or vegetables. It can be used as a marinade before cooking or served on top after cooking. Use parsley pesto the same way; it is also tasty on spaghetti squash, pasta, potatoes, and rice. Bring new life to your tired weeknight meals and impress your family with a fresh and zesty good4u sauce!
Making your own egg dye from natural foods is simple and fun. You can even use brown-shelled eggs—with their darker base, they enhance the color, creating a range of earthy jewel tones. Just mix up your dyes and let the eggs soak until your desired color is reached. The dye can be used to make more eggs, just be sure to keep it in the refrigerator. And remember that natural dyes stain too, so be sure to protect your egg dyeing area and clothes!
This tapenade is a simple and delicious way to spice up your regular healthy meals that may have become a little boring. Mix it with pasta and olive oil for a quick family dinner; use it to top chicken, fish, steak, or tempeh; try it as a pizza topping; mix it into your favorite hummus or spread it on a sandwich; or thin it out with a little more olive oil and some lemon juice for a flavorful salad dressing. The sky’s the limit! And although the anchovies can be left out, don’t let them scare you—they add a boost of savory umami without a fishy flavor.
