Soledad, CA (PRWEB) May 05, 2015
With Mother's Day, graduation and grilling season just ahead, Josie's Organics, one of the country's leading organic vegetable brands, knows exactly what's running through the minds of moms across the country. What to eat? There’s no need to thumb through the family recipe box or spend hours browsing Pinterest – Josie's Organics added fresh, seasonal recipes today on http://www.josiesorganics.com/recipes.
The new recipes are sophisticated and easy to make, featuring popular and delicious Josie's Organics vegetables like sweet baby broccoli, celery and beets. Josie's Organics continues its commitment to whole vegetable cooking – from root to stalk – in all the new recipes. Vegetables are paired with healthy grains, fresh mackerel, cage-free chicken and beef for nutritious and well-balanced dishes.
"We know moms choosing our organic produce for their families are just as thoughtful about the quality and care we put into farming our vegetables as they are about the time and effort spent in the kitchen preparing meals," said Rod Braga, CEO and farmer of Josie's Organics. "Our food and lifestyle expert Chadwick Boyd kept that in mind in creating these new recipes to give consumers healthy options and the convenience they need to enjoy extra family time at the table."
Among the recipes moms will find:
- Sweet Baby Broccoli and Bulgur Wheat Salad with Caramelized Shallots and Walnuts – Tender stalks of Josie's sweet baby broccoli and quick, caramelized shallots dress up 10-minute ancient grain Bulgur wheat to make a light, though slightly decadent salad that is worthy to be dinner all on its own.
- Coriander-crusted Beet and Beef Kebabs with Cilantro Feta Sauce – Earthy, hearty Josie's Organics beets and cubes of sirloin are crusted with fragrant coriander seeds and then thrown on the grill for big, delicious dinner bites. They are simple enough for weeknight dinner, yet sophisticated for weekend entertaining.
- Celery and Snap Pea Salad with Blue Cheese and Pomegranate – Crisp, crunchy Josie's celery and sweet bits of raw sugar snaps get dolled up with warm garlic lemon dressing, tangy bits of blue cheese and sweet pomegranate seeds. It's a fresh and light modern salad that's picnic and party perfect.
- Roasted Broccoli, Poblano and Pinto Mash Tacos with Lime Cream – Whole broccoli and poblano peppers take over taco night along with cinnamon-scented mashed pinto beans and an easy Greek yogurt-based cumin lime cream. It's a vegetable-forward build-your-own taco bar that's mom, kid and even meat-lover approved.
