Time: 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM EDT
This month’s “Dinner’s in the Bag!” at the Potsdam Food Co-op will offer Roasted Carrots, Farro, Chickpeas, and Pepitas, with a simple Tahini Sauce. This tasty dish features farro, a hearty nutty-tasting ancient whole grain derived from wheat. Farro is one of the oldest cultivated grains originating in the Middle East, rich in fiber, iron, and protein. Excellent as a main meal or side dish, this recipe is perfect with the abundance of sweet local carrots now available at the Co-op. Samples will be offered by Big Spoon Kitchen at the 1st Thursday Sampling on November 1st from 3:30 - 5:30 pm. Meal-Kits will also be available all month for purchase, complete with the recipe and Co-op ingredients to make the meal at home. Each month “Dinner’s in the Bag!” will present a new recipe to try, along with the ingredients to take home and create yourself. The Meal-Kits offer the convenience of having everything gathered with all that is needed to make a quick and nutritious meal in your own kitchen, no planning required.
