LITHED-UP SALAD (& SOUP)! 31 Aug 2015

Lithed-Up Salad

We love Ian Brendle (Green Meadow Farm) and Z Food Farm's produce. So crisp, flavorful, and clean. Each week, these soups and salads change as we bring you summer greens straight from the farm. Here's what's available now:

Lithe Borscht Soup
Organic beets, organic tomato, onion, garlic, caraway, red wine vinegar and honey

This sweet, rosy, and creamy (dairy-free) chilled superfood soup is your body’s BFF. Remember all those legendary Russian centenarians? Beets, frequently consumed in borscht, a traditional Russian soup, may be one reason behind their long and healthy lives.  Packed with antioxidants will have you energized and glowing in no time at all. Beets are loaded with anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants that reduce oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals that can lead to aging, illness, and memory loss.  Enjoy it cold.  
One serving ($8)

Grilled Summer Bowl
Organic quinoa, brown rice, organic eggplant, organic heirloom tomato, shishito peppers, sherry vinaigrette and EVOO

This is the perfect post-Lithe meal. Like your favorite stir-fry, our grilled eggplant and shishito peppers are simple and completely addictive, and paired with protein-packed quinoa and rice (13 grams!).  Shishito peppers are slender, finger-length green pods with thin skins and a delicious sweet flavor. 
Enjoy it cold.  
One serving ($10)

Grilled Peaches & Squash Salad
Grilled organic squash, grilled organic peaches, parsley, white wine vinager & EVOO
This beautiful salad is so good and captures the flavor of late August. Yellow fleshed, Jersey peaches nestled among lightly charred summer squash and fronds of parsley are all brought together with a generous drizzle of white wine vinegar and EVOO. Enjoy it cold.

LITHED-UP DAHL 19 Aug 2015

Lithed Up Dahl

Labor Day weekend is almost here, so you may want to keep this recipe in your back pocket. This Lithed-up dish is our anti-inflammatory secret weapon for counteracting your late summer wild ways (think: too much wine and sugar). The Indian equivalent of Jewish chicken soup, mung dahl is food for the soul. It's an easy-to-digest Ayurvedic stew that satisfies a body screaming for nutrition.  


2 c. mung beans

3 large onions, sliced

5 cloves of garlic, diced

1 thumb size piece of ginger, diced

4 large carrots, finely diced

7 large handfuls of spinach

3 large handfuls of coriander, finely chop the stems and roughly chop the leaves

2 limes (juice one and cut the other into wedges for garnish)

6 cups of hot water

1 tbs organic coconut oil

1 tbs Bragg Liquid Aminos

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tbs cumin

1 tbs turmeric

6 cardamom pods, smashed


  1. Cover and soak the mung beans overnight, then drain and rinse.
  2. Bring the water to a boil in a large saucepan, then add beans and simmer (covered) on med heat.
  3. Dry fry (without oil) the spices in a large frying pan for 1 minute on a medium heat until fragrant. Stir continuously to prevent burning.
  4. Gently heat the coconut oil in the same pan, and then fry the onions until soft, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add garlic and ginger and dry fry 5 more minutes on low heat, stirring to prevent over-browning.
  6. When the beans have cooked for approx 20 minutes, add carrots and the onions-garlic-ginger mix (set aside 2-3 tbs. of mix for garnish).
  7. Add coriander, pepper and Braggs. Continue to cook over medium heat covered for approx 10-15 minutes.
  8. Add more water or stock if needed and stir to prevent burning.
  9. Serve with a handful of chopped spinach (the leaves will wilt) and top with a spoonful of the spiced onion-garlic-ginger mix, and lime juice.

Lithed-Up Soba

You can throw this dish together in 30 minutes and it's perfect when you crave creamy noodles. Kids love it, too. Sometimes we add a thumb-size piece of a fresh long hot pepper to the dressing for an extra kick. 

Serves 4-6

Sea salt
8 oz. buckwheat soba noodles

Sauce Ingredients:
1/3 c. creamy almond or cashew butter
1/4 c. Bragg Liquid Aminos
3 tbs. fresh lime juice
3 tbs. EVOO
2 tbs. sesame oil
1 1/2 tbs. raw honey
2 tsp. wasabi paste (found in the Asian market or Asian section of the grocery)
One 1 1/2 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped
2-3 tbs. sesame seeds


Boil a large pot of salted water over high heat. Cook noodles until tender yet still firm, stirring occasionally for 4 to 5 minutes or follow directions on back of package. Rinse noodles in cold water. Drain and place in a serving bowl.

Combine nut butter, Braggs, lime juice, olive oil, sesame oil, honey, wasabi, and ginger in a high speed blender and blend until smooth. P
our dressing over noodles and toss until coated. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve over arugula.

Everyone knows that late summer eats such as hot dogs, burgers, and ice cream are delicious, yet totally unhealthy. Skip the chips and dip and take our Lithed-up crudite and baba ganoush to the pool or beach.

    •    1 large organic eggplant

    •    1 garlic clove, minced

    •    2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

    •    3 ½ tsp. EVOO

    •    1 bunch organic celery, rinsed and cut

    •    2-3 organic cucumbers, rinsed and sliced into discs

    •    1 bunch organic asparagus, rinsed
 and cut
    •    2 organic zucchini, rinsed

    •    Fresh parsley for garnish

    1.    Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking pan with foil and cut eggplant in half. Lightly brush ½ tsp. of EVOO on the bottom of eggplant and place it face down in pan.

    2.    Bake for 15 minutes, and then broil for approximately 5 minutes. Poke with a fork to make sure it’s cooked all the way through.

    3.    Take fork and scoop the inside of eggplant into a bowl (in the same way that you'd scoop out spaghetti squash).

    4.    Place roasted eggplant innards, garlic, lemon juice, and EVOO in a blender and blend until smooth. Scoop into a bowl and let cool in the fridge until ready to serve.

    5.    Rinse, slice, and plate cucumber, celery, asparagus, and zucchini. Garnish with parsley and enjoy.
