Fresh from the Farm

Okay – so we’re a bit biased – we know….but shopping at a fresh farmers’ market on a sunny Saturday morning is the perfect way to kick off your weekend. And no one in the city of Toronto can use the excuse of ” I don’t have time”. With a market on every corner, of every day of the week, there is no excuse to not buying local this fall. It’s the best way to support your farmers, your food supply and your future! Check out what’s fresh in the city right now: kale, cauliflower, cucumbers, celery, carrots, lettuces, zuccini, and of course….apples! Take advantage of the fall harvest and load up on fresh seasonal fruits and veggies:

Here’s today’s recipe for Easy Garlic Kale:

What you’ll need:

1 head of red, green or black kale

Good olive oil

Freshly pressed garlic

Good quality or home-made veggie stock (we like Imagine in the Tetra Pack or Culiniarum’s home-made!)

Fresh or dried chilli peppers

Good sea salt & black pepper

Freshly grated parmesan cheese

1 lemon

Heat olive oil in a deep sautee pan and add pressed garlic. Sautee until garlic becomes fragrant. Add dash of sea salt, black pepper and chillies. Add kale to sautee pan and slowly pour in 1/4 cup of veggie stock. Cover pan for 3-5 minutes or until kale turns bright green. Remove from heat and transfer kale to large serving bowl. Cover with freshly grated parmesan and ground pepper. Squeeze half a lemon over kale and serve as a side with your favourite protein or as a meal with a cold glass of rosee!
