A twist on the old rice pudding – this time using almonds and almond milk and, instead of sugar, organic dried raisins and dates for sweetness. This recipe combines many storecupboard organic wholefoods, which can be bought in bulk for maximum savings.

Ingredients

• 125g organic pitted dates
• 1 cup uncooked short-grain organic brown rice (or you could use white pudding rice)

Organic walnut and aubergine dip

Added on July 23rd, 2011
Found in Nut recipes, Recipes

With the aubergine season coming on, here is an easy dip using fresh aubergines and organic walnuts.

Ingredients

• 1 fresh organic aubergine
• 6 tbsp organic olive oil
• 2 garlic gloves
• 1 small red onion, diced
• a handful of organic walnuts, chopped
• 2 to 3 tbsp lemon juice
• salt, to taste
• 1 medium tomato, diced
• toasted pitta breads, to serve

Method

1. Bake the whole aubergine in the oven for at least 30 minutes on a high heat, on the top shelf. The skin should be slightly burnt and the inside soft and mushy.
2. While it is still a little hot, peel the skin of the aubergine and discard it.
3. Heat the olive oil in a pan over a medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onion. Sauté for a minute – don’t let the onions go too soft.
4. Place the mushy aubergine in the pan and mash so that it becomes smooth. Add the chopped walnuts and stir again. Add in lemon juice, salt and a little more olive oil to taste, if desired.
5. Serve in a dish and garnish with the chopped tomatoes on top. Toast some pitta bread and get stuck in!

Gluten-free: have you tried organic coconut flour and oil?

Added on July 22nd, 2011
Found in Baking, Biona, Flour Gluten Free

We sell Tiana coconut flour and oil, Pukka coconut oil and Biona coconut oil.  The 800g Biona Organic Virgin Coconut Oil offers great value for the size. (We give a discount of 10% if you buy a case of any of our products.)

Here’s the health bit……!

Coconut flour is naturally gluten-free and, unlike some other gluten-free flours, is high in fibre (3-4 tablespoons will give you 100% of your daily fibre needs). It has an equivalent protein level to wholewheat flour and is low GI.

Coconut oil has had some bad press in the past, as it is classified as a saturated fat. However, its structure is notably different from the more well-known saturated fats: it is more easily broken down and requires less energy to do so, meaning that it is not deposited as fat in the body. Coconut oil is rich in nutrients; it’s said to help those suffering from a slow metabolic rate or digestive problems, and also contains lauric acid, which boosts the immune system. Vitally, coconut oil has no trans fats!

Teff flour back in stock

Added on July 22nd, 2011
Found in Flour Gluten Free

We are really pleased that we now have gluten-free teff flour back in stock.

Teff is an ancient grain grown in Ethiopia. For those avoiding gluten in their diet, it has many attractive features, being naturally high in fibre and iron and a good provider of protein and calcium.

Teff is a very small grain, making it impossible to separate the germ from the husk. With teff flour, the entire seed is milled and then eaten, giving its rich nutritional value.

Alongside teff flour, Naturally Good Food sell a full range of gluten-free flours – and don’t forget our standard 10% case discount.

Organic pulses

Added on July 22nd, 2011
Found in Pulses

As part of our efforts to keep customers informed on what we expect to happen to prices, we have had a look at the organic bean and pulse market – and it seems as if prices may increase. Regardless of where in the world you look, commodity prices for wheat, soya and corn are rising, with a knock-on effect on pulses and beans. With the amount of land devoted to growing being reduced, we can only assume that this will have an impact on the prices of organic beans and pulses over the next 12 months.

Nevertheless, organic beans and pulses still represent great value for money and a really good source of protein. They are also good for the environment, as the protein is not being turned into animal feed.

Organic dried fruit update

Added on July 21st, 2011
Found in Dried Fruit

In order to help you plan your buying of organic dried fruit, we are looking to add a ‘what is happening’ addition to this section. To start, we have a quick round-up, as we are now starting to see crop news for the organic dried fruit market.

Organic dried apricots – in Turkey, where much of the organic dried apricots come from, the growing conditions have been favourable. The flower buds set and were not hit by frost; if these good conditions continue, then we may see the price of dried apricots fall at the end of the year. This would be very good news and would make organic apricots excellent value for money. However, the crop is expected to be later than normal. The current situation, meanwhile, is tight, due to low crop yields last year – so we may see some problem sbefore the new apricot crop is harvested.

Organic figs – many of our suppliers are running low on organic figs. As the new crop is some months away, now might be a good time to buy, before there is a significant shortage.

Organic dates – our suppliers are now importing dates to avoid the very high summer temperatures anticipated. We can expect a new crop of organic dates to arrive in November.

Added on July 20th, 2011

This is an easy high-protein vegetarian burger recipe (if you want a vegan version, substitute oil for the beaten egg).

The organic brazil nuts in this recipe give you a high protein ingredient, with the additional benefits of a boost of selenium. If you want a really rich dish, try using some butter: in our house, butter and bulgar wheat together are a firm favourite!

2 tbsp olive oil
2 onions
2 celery sticks
2 garlic cloves
125g organic bulgar wheat
250g organic brazil nuts
300ml vegetable stock - use Marigold organic bouillon

Found in Seeds

If you are looking for a tasty, easy snack, try our organic sunflower seeds, which come in a great range of sizes, from 100g to 25kg.
