Our favorite lunch right now

Posted on January 30, 2014 by Bennett Coffey | 0 Comments

Over in the NYSM Vineyard Haven kitchen space, we have a lot going on. There is production happening most days, all day, orders being shipped out, customers coming through the door for drinks and treats, phones ringing and meetings happening all at the same time. We are busy little bees back there. But we always like to slow it down to eat some lunch together. Pictured here is our go-to favorite and super easy meal. Each time we make it, it is always more beautiful than the last time. There are different ways that you can vary the recipe, using different beans, different greens or whatever calls to you. We thought we would share this with you for a little lunch inspiration if you are tired of your same old sandwich. 

You will need:

1 head of kale

Fermented cabbage (optional...buy at your grocery store)

Organic chickpeas

Organic Tempeh

Hummus (optional)

Hemp seeds (optional)

Nutritional Yeast

Olive oil

Balsamic vinegar

Sea salt



To make:

Steam the kale for 5-10 minutes. 

Rinse and drain chickpeas

Saute tempeh in some coconut oil for about 5-10 mins or until light brown on each side

Combine all ingredients and serve with a dollop of hummus, drizzle olive oil and balsamic and sprinkle with sea salt and nutritional yeast (and hemp seeds if desired). Enjoy this amazing and nutritious meal!

OPEN for Business by MV Patch.com

Not Your Sugar Mamas has taken their raw chocolate business and made it brick and mortar. This week, Not Your Sugar Mamas opened their own store in Tisbury Marketplace next door to Rocco's Pizzeria. Ths store not only sells their amazing raw chocolate, but also organic coffee, herbal energy beverages, and other chocolate healty-for-you treats.

The founders of Not Your Sugar Mamas, Bennett Coffey and Kyleen Keenan, explained that their chocolate is, "Dairy free and gluten free as well as free of refined sugar."

Along with chocolate bars they also sell brownies and cookies. And a hot chocolate at Not Your Sugar Mamas means customers have a choice of organic or hemp milk and organic coconut palm sugar.

One of the most unique beverages that they sell that you'll have a hard time finding anywhere else, is the Dandilion Herbal Beverage.

"It's not a coffee beverage, it's an herbal beverage. It's made from dandilion root, beet root, and extract of roasted barley, rye and chickory root," said Keenan. 

Keenan said it has the same taste as coffee without the acidity. And it doesn't hurt your blood sugar. "It's a great alternative to coffee," she said.

"It's real energy, not just that instant shock...you can use it as espresso."

As for the store hours, "Right now we're open 11 am - 3 pm because we just opened, but we'll be expanding our hours soon."

The business has a twitter account: @NotUrSugrMamas and a Facebook page: Not Your Sugar Mamas where they will be posting updates and daily specials.
