Shop Organic

September is National Organic Month! 

September is a perfect time to dive into the benefits that shopping organic has to offer you, your family, and the planet. Rising Tide offers many clean options across multiple departments – (and we are particularly proud of our 100% Certified Organic produce department—the only one in the area).  But let’s take a look at what ‘organic’ means and what these products have to offer.  

What is Organic? 

Most of us have a grasp on what organic products are made without (ie GMOs), but there really is SO much more to earning the 100 percent organic label.  

According to the USDA, certified organic foods are grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, and use of additives. Organic producers rely on natural substances and physical, mechanical, or biologically based farming methods to the fullest extent possible.  Learn more about the processes and standards here.
 

What the Labels Mean 

Understanding what the labels mean empowers customers to make informed decisions about the food they purchase. And it might help you to know our staff is extremely knowledgeable in this area and is always available to answer any questions you might have! 

  • 100% Organic: All the ingredients are certified organic. 
  • Organic: At least 95% of the ingredients are certified organic. 
  • Made With Organic Ingredients: At least 70% of the ingredients are certified organic.

The Benefits

There are a lot of studies that show organic food may simply be better for your health. For example, Only Organic highlights a 2016 study found that organic dairy and meat contain about 50 percent more omega-3 fatty acids. AND in 2014 a comprehensive review of earlier studies found substantially higher levels of antioxidants and lower levels of pesticides in organic fruits, vegetables and grains compared with conventionally grown produce.

There are many more benefits of shopping organic that include the health of you, your family, and the planet – you can read more about these advantages here.

  3. Pour the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. Lightly dust the top of the dough with flour as well as your hand, and press the dough out into a rectangle about 8 x 10″. Fold the dough in thirds like a letter, then press back out into a rectangle. fold in thirds again, the press back out into a rectangle. Use a bench scraper to cut the dough into either six large shortcakes or eight smaller shortcakes.
  4. Place the shortcakes on the prepared baking sheet. Use a pastry brush to brush the tops of the shortcakes with cream, and generously sprinkle turbinado sugar on top. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  5. To make the whipped yogurt cream, add the cream and sugar into the bowl of a stand mixer. Whip on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add the yogurt, and gently fold in.
  6. Assemble the shortcakes right before serving. Split the shortcakes in half. Spoon strawberries on the bottom half and add yogurt whipped cream. Place the other half of the shortcake on top. Enjoy!

Recipes 

Grilled Vegetable Orzo Salad
While burgers get a lot of love this time of year, don’t sleep on grilled vegetables! You get all the same char-grilled goodness, and you don’t have to heat your kitchen roasting veggies. Worried about losing skinny veggies between the grates of your grill? Either roast veggies whole or use some foil to give them a solid surface. Topped with scallions and feta cheese, this orzo salad is perfect for all your summer get togethers! You can eat it right away warm or let it cool and serve it chilled. A big batch of this in the fridge is perfect to have on hand whenever hunger strikes.

Creamy Basil Kefir Sauce
This ultra-creamy basil kefir sauce is the perfect low-lactose addition to pasta, salads, or even flatbreads. Thanks to the Redwood Hill Farm Goat Milk Kefir, your dish will even get a little probiotic boost, too. Yay, microbiome!

Grain-Free Iced Lemon Blueberry Tray Cake
Whether it’s for Mother’s Day or just to appreciate the final weeks of spring, this grain-free tray bake might remind you of a certain baking competition show from across the pond. This quick bread is perfect for breakfast in bed or to go with an afternoon coffee. It would also make a fine dessert if it lasts that long! Lemon and blueberry are such a perfect combination. If you don’t see nice fresh blueberries quite yet, you can substitute wild frozen berries. Thawed works best, but if you don’t have time, baking with frozen blueberries works here too! It just may need a few extra minutes in the oven.

King Mushroom Birria-Style Tacos
Sautéed mushrooms pack a flavorful punch when combined with a melty plant-based cheese! The chicken flavored bouillon contains no meat, but it does add a ton of umami. The beauty of birria-style tacos is that you get a side of dipping sauce! Instead of a traditional consommé, this simplified version uses enchilada sauce, so you don’t have to wait long to enjoy! Feel free to thin the enchilada sauce with veggie broth (maybe mushroom broth!) to get a more typical birria experience. It’s messy, but it’s so good!

Asian Summer Noodle Bowl with Peanut Dressing

Jump into spring with a seasonal project that’s great for the whole family! Marvel over the way boiled red cabbage turns an egg blue and yellow onion skins make a vibrant orange. It’s science and creativity all in one! The longer the eggs sit in their solutions, the more pronounced their color becomes. Try drawing on the eggs with crayons to create dye-free spots or dipping only half the egg. Who can make the funkiest egg of the dozen? 

 

Cauliflower Cheese Gratin
This gratin is great, because you use the leaves of the cauliflower, and not just the florets. With the same creamy, cheesy sauce as your favorite mac and cheese, this cauliflower dish adds comfort and vegetables to your meal rotation. Sambal is an Indonesian chili garlic paste. In this dish, it cuts through the cream and adds a touch of heat. If you don’t have any on hand, a good substitute would be Sriracha; red pepper flakes can also work in a pinch.

Pineapple Tepache
Have you ever bought a fresh pineapple and wondered if there was a way to utilize all the rind? If you’re a fan of kombucha, try your hand at homemade pineapple tepache. It’s easier and faster to make tepache than kombucha. This fermented drink is full of enzymes like bromelain from pineapple and probiotics from the fermentation process, which can support digestion. Make sure to taste the mixture often to find the perfect blend of sweet and tart. Serve as a refreshing sparkling drink or use it full-strength in your next homemade vinaigrette.

  4. Place jar in a cool, dark place for up to five days. Taste daily until mixture has fermented to your taste. When done, strain it, and store in a clean jar in the fridge. 
  5. To serve, mix finished tepache with plain sparkling water (about a 1:3 ratio of tepache to water) or serve over ice.

Cauliflower Cheese Gratin

This gratin is great, because you use the leaves of the cauliflower, and not just the florets. With the same creamy, cheesy sauce as your favorite mac and cheese, this cauliflower dish adds comfort and vegetables to your meal rotation. Sambal is an Indonesian chili garlic paste. In this dish, it cuts through the cream and adds a touch of heat. If you don’t have any on hand, a good substitute would be Sriracha; red pepper flakes can also work in a pinch.

Serves 2-4
50 minutes
Vegetarian

Ingredients

  • 1 large cauliflower (2 ½ pounds)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced

Cheese Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ¾ cup grated Parmesan or Gruyere cheese, divided
  • ½ cup chopped Italian parsley
  • 1-2 tablespoons sambal sauce (see note above)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. To prepare the cauliflower, remove an inch off the cauliflower core and discard. Cut cauliflower into florets and slice leaves in half along the stem.
  2. Toss cauliflower with oil, garlic, and place on a baking sheet. Season with salt and black pepper. Roast for 30-35 minutes or until tender.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare cheese sauce by melting butter in a small saucepan then whisking in flour. Cook flour mixture for one minute then whisk in milk. Bring milk to a gentle simmer, and cook until thickened, whisking frequently. Turn off heat and whisk in a ¼ cup cheese until incorporated.
  4. Place cauliflower in a baking dish and stir in parsley and drizzle on sambal.
  5. Spoon cheese sauce over cauliflower and top with remaining grated cheese.
  6. Broil for 5 minutes or until top is bubbling and golden in color.
