We've reworked this recipe a bit to make it compliant with the GAPS Diet protocol, as well as soy-free, removing mung bean thread noodles and using coconut aminos in place of tamari. Grassfed beef is simmered in bone broth with Napa cabbage, daikon and carrots. The classic flavor profile is set with fresh ginger, coconut aminos and a bit of toasted sesame oil, then finished with fresh-squeezed orange juice and zest for a touch of sweetness as well as minced cilantro for a subtle herbaceous burst.

Due to an unprecedented shortage of Mason jars and canning supplies throughout the country, we are temporarily jarring this product this week in quart jars rather than the 24-ounce size we normally use. In order to avoid price increases, we are filling the jars with the same amount of product we would normally put in the 24-ounce jar. We appreciate your understanding and support as we deal with this situation. These partially-filled quart jars can be frozen safely.
This flavorful, nourishing vegan soup was crafted by Sonia Serrano, one of our "New Recipe Midwives." Along with a variety of fresh and dried mushrooms (reconstituted by soaking), a true highlight of this dish are the delicate flakes of nutrient-rich bull kelp harvested off the Northern California coast by Julie Drucker of Yemaya Seaweed. Sadly, this variety of kelp is diminishing and may not be around much longer due to environmental changes in the ocean. Luckily, we're able to get a good quantity from Julie, so we can continue to offer this healing broth. Makrut lime leaves from a local garden add subtle aromatic notes.
Ingredients: filtered water, leeks,* fresh maitake and nameko mushrooms,* reconstituted porcini, shiitake, crimini and oyster mushrooms,* Celtic sea salt, wild-harvested bull kelp and kombu, olive oil,* porcini powder,* thyme,* makrut lime leaves*, lime zest* (* = organic)

We're very excited to be able to offer Sikil Pak, a traditional Mayan pumpkin seed dip from the Yucatan. This dish features an indigineous herb called papalo, commonly used instead of cilantro before Europeans arrived, provided by our favorite urban farmers at Feral Heart Farm in Sunol. To make our version, we take organic pumpkin seeds, soak them in saltwater and lightly toast. We then puree them with tomatoes, caramelized onions, pickled jalapeño peppers, garlic, fresh herbs and citrus juice for a delightful dip that would go especially well with the incomparable blue or white corn tortillas we carry from Alma Semillera.

We've been especially enjoying it mixed into Vital Choice Albacore Tuna, Salmon, Mackerel or Sardines.
