We recently tested out this amazing butternut squash soup recipe from the One Gun Ranch cookbook (which, if you haven't heard of it, is a wonderful cookbook by the founders of a biodynamic farm in California). It's simple to prepare, but hints of ginger, lime, and jalapeño complement the squash in an unexpected way. All we did was add some fresh cilantro and toasted sesame oil as a garnish, and it was a perfect lunch for our whole family.
We always try and get creative with the ways we incorporate our Biodynamic Apple Sauces into our recipes at home ... but a recent collaboration with Insta-blogger Kayla Mangione of @thefamilyfoodproject resulted in one of the most original recipes we've seen to-date: homemade fruit leathers.
You know what we love? When recipes taste complex and fancy, but they're actually straightforward and simple. Such is the case with our Chocolate Banana Applesauce cake. The flavor combination is decadent and elevated, but the process and ingredients are as straightforward as they come. And we even snuck in our apple pear sauce as a natural sweetener!
This is a really kid-friendly, easy breakfast recipe that makes an appearance on our table pretty often! Our four-year-old loves it and asks for it regularly. There are many variations on the classic Dutch Baby recipe, but this is our family favorite. We use organic ingredients, and top it with Crofters Biodynamic® Blueberry spread.
Give it a try!
We love Buttermilk pancakes … but sometimes we simply want to change things up! We find that adding our Biodynamic Apple + Pear Sauce to a classic buttermilk pancake recipe brings an interesting twist on this traditional breakfast staple. Try it for yourself with our recipe below ...
There's a lot to love about this next recipe. For one: It tastes amazing and it's the perfect dessert for fall, because it blends seasonal flavors like apple & pear (thanks to our Biodynamic Apple & Pear Sauce), cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange zest. But what we might love most about this recipe is how incredibly simple it is. You literally mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients and bake it.
September means the start of the school year, but it's also the beginning of all of the activities that go along with it: band practice, sports games, club meetings, and carpools. We love this easy, healthy recipe for raw energy bars (made with our Biodynamic Apple and Pear Sauce!) for quick nutrition before after-school activities or on game days for both kids and parents alike. We make these bars in batches ahead of time and keep them in ziploc baggies in the freezer (they're best eaten within 15 minutes or so of taking them out).
This is an amazing recipe for anyone who likes to use yogurt on a daily basis. The most important ingredient in this recipe is the best milk you can possibly buy. I look for local milk ideally; but a USDA organic-certified whole milk works great as well. Theposibilities are endless when it comes to using yogurt. From granola and fruit in the morning to smoothies and even salad dressings. We like to add a few drops of lavender oil and honey*, or a teaspoon of natural vanilla.
Lone Willow Ranch has created a line of biodynamic homegrown pastas from two of its heirloom organic wheats, the one which I am using in this recipe is their Soft Spring Sonora Wheat pasta which works well with a mild tomato sauce. Adding a few wedges of burrata, which is basically cream wrapped in mozzarella, compliments the soft wheat pasta with my late summer heirloom tomato sauce. My recipe is rather large so when I have access to lots of late season heirloom tomatoes I make a large tomato sauce, use what I need for the recipe and freeze the remaining* for soups, sauces and ragu's.
Almost every Sunday, growing up in my house in Ireland, a roast chicken took center stage at on our table at dinner time. What makes a perfect roast chicken? in my opinion it takes three things, 1, the best quality Certified Humane Raised & Handled organic bird you can buy. 2, seasoned correctly and 3, perfecting the cooking and resting time. In this recipe I have roasted the chicken with La Vigne Organics Biodynamic Moroccan preserved lemons and fresh thyme butter. Enjoy
