Gluten free, dairy free, legume free – it’s a perfect addition to your spring crudité platter, served up with some roasted veggies… or as a dip for chips. It’s so delicious you’ll have a hard time not eating by the spoonful.
Around here we eat some sort of ferment at least once a day. A welcome addition to any meal, tangy and salty these three ferments are just a few that I make on rotation. The classic caraway sauerkraut is Adrian’s favourite. While I love the vibrant hue and the subtle earthiness of the beet cabbage sauerkraut, the curtido (cabbage, carrot and onion) might be my new favourite.

This cashew based dip is smooth, creamy, and perfectly tangy with a hint of heat from the pickled jalapeños. If you’re avoiding legumes or are simply interested in expanding your dip repertoire you should give this a try!
Vibrant jewel like treasures to brighten up your winter. I have to admit, I haven’t always been a fan of beets. I used to think they tasted like dirt (they kind of do), but over the years I’ve learned to love them. When you let them ferment, they retain their crunchy texture and develop a delicious tangy flavour (i.e. they no longer taste like dirt).
These oven baked salmon cakes are easy to make, nutrient dense and packed full of flavour. Dairy and gluten free, with fresh herbs, rich squash and omega packed salmon all topped off with a maple sweetened teriyaki sauce.

Tangy, salty, crunchy and spicy, these fermented jalapeño peppers make a delicious addition to your morning eggs, nachos, burrito or anything really.

These baked falafels are packed full of herbs and spices, and come out nice and crispy without any deep frying.

As the days grow longer and the weather warms, farmers market stands begin to fill with more colourful produce. Radishes recently made their appearance, glowing globes like multi coloured christmas lights adorning the market tables… It was exciting I tell you! In the spring, radishes are a mild, juicy, and crunchy addition to salads and tacos, even the green tops are delightful.
