Organic Sunflower SeedsFrom: $3.25
With their crunchy, nutty taste, sunflower seeds can easily become a regular part of your daily diet. Sprinkle them on your salads or stir-fries, stir them into yogurt … the possibilities are as endless as the good qualities of these sun-loving seeds.
Delicious for snacking, sunflower seeds also add a boost to your recipes. Sprinkle sunflower kernels over salads, cereals or desserts. Add the seeds to muffin, cake, or bread dough. Scatter some over the top of breads, muffins, cakes or cookies during the last five minutes of baking to toast the seeds, adding a crunchy texture to your recipe. In a coffee or spice grinder, grind the sunflower kernels and use as a substitute for flour when breading fried foods such as chicken or fish. Replace up to one fourth of the flour in baked goods recipes with ground sunflower seeds to benefit from the nutrition of the seeds.

Organic Tri-colour QuinoaFrom: $4.25
Imagine the rich complexity of this quinoa. The darker colour and earthy grain-like flavour of the black and red quinoa is balanced with the softer texture and lighter flavour of the white quinoa. This results in a colourful, nutritious combination of texture and flavour. It can be substituted in any recipe calling for rice and is also great in soups and salads.
How to Use:
Organic Quinoa can be served hot or cold in place of rice or couscous. Cook as a nutritious porridge and serve with fresh fruit and yoghurt for a great start to the day. Use it to accompany stir fries and curries, in soups and hotpots, serve herbed with fresh fish, and create wonderful salads as main meals or side dishes. Try as a delicious gluten free replacement for cracked wheat in Tabouli, or with goat’s cheese, olives, capers and roasted Mediterranean vegetables. Add raw to bread and muffin recipes, or mix pre-cooked Quinoa with shredded coconut as a substitute for oats on top of yummy grain free fruit crumbles.
1 cup of dried Quinoa will cook up to be about 3 cups. Rinse well under cold water (use a fine mesh sieve). Place drained Quinoa in saucepan of cold water about 1-2 cm above seeds. Cover and bring to a boil on medium heat, turn the heat down to low and set the lid ajar. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, until Quinoa is tripled in size, tender, with ‘tails’ popping out. Once cooked, turn off the heat, put the lid on and let sit for about 5 minutes. Use a fork to fluff up the Quinoa and serve.
