Choice A:  Freekah Bowl   (vegan)

Build a quick and delicious dinner bowl loaded with lemon balm-pumpkin seed pesto, crunchy cucumbers, fresh-cooked chickpeas, green beans, and a new-to-us grain, freekah!  New to you too?   "Freekeh (sometimes called farik) is wheat that’s harvested while young and green. It's roasted over an open fire, then the straw and chaff are burned and rubbed off. The grain on the inside is too young and moist to burn, so what you're left with is a firm, slightly chewy grain with a distinct flavor that's earthy, nutty, and slightly smoky."   From https://greatist.com/eat/what-is-freekeh

Potential allergens: wheat

Last week's menu got re-scheduled to this week, now with photos!

Choice A:  Early Summer Buddha Bowl with Roasted Veggies & Quinoa (vegan, gluten-free)

You might think you know a vegetable.... and then you roast it and meet a brand new friend who is sweet, complex, and fun to be around.  Prepare yourself to fall in love with these roasted seasonal veggies (including new potatoes, radishes, young onions, and garlic scapes) whose friendship you'll savor atop a bed of protein-rich quinoa, and finished off with a generous drizzle of maple-mustard dressing.  

Choice B: Curried Lentils with Rhubarb, Chard, and Rice (vegan, gluten-free)

Dig into a comforting bowl of richly spiced lentils that have been simmered with spring onions, tangy rhubarb (yes, rhubarb), and rainbow swiss chard.  Brown rice are a nutty backdrop and cucumbers provide a cooling balance to this dish which can be enjoyed hot or cold, any time of day!

Please PRE-ORDER BY 8AM MONDAY for a Friday pick-up at Quest or Frinklepod. 

Menu for June 22

pho.jpg
emmer salad.jpg

Choice A:  Pho  (vegan, gluten-free)

Warning:  This Vietnamese-inspired soup just may be the best soup you've ever had.  Slurpy rice noodles, crispy Heiwa tofu and local mushrooms, bright pea shoots and cilantro bask in a richly spiced (anise/clove/cinnamon) vegan "beef" broth.  

Say it with me now:  "fuh"

Contains soy.

 

Choice B:  Emmer Wheatberry Salad

Ever heard of Emmer?  Didn't think so.  Emmer is an ancient ancestor of wheat - high in protein and low in gluten, making it a great choice for people who are sensitive to more common, hybridized types of wheat.

This scrumptious, salad is best eaten chilled, after the flavors of the fresh veggies, herbs, and lemon dressing have had ample time to mingle with the trio of proteins - emmer, chickpeas, and almonds.  We like to make it in the morning and eat it for dinner!

Contains: Wheat, Almonds 

Menu for June 15

poke bowl.jpg
beet falafel.jpeg

Choice A: Poke Bowl (vegan, gluten-free)

Our take on the traditional Hawaiian dish (which usually includes raw fish), this Poke ("Poh-KAY") Bowl is a veritable rainbow of color, flavor, and texture:  our own fresh pac choi greens, caramelized pineapple, crispy baked tofu, brown rice, miso-ginger dressing, and topped with toasted sesame and nori strips.   And while we didn't grow the pineapple ourselves, we are proud to say that two Maine-made products really make this dish shine: tofu from Heiwa (Rockport) and miso from go-en fermented foods (Whitefield).

Contains soy.

Choice B:  Beet Falafel (vegan)

One of our signature FMK recipes, beet falafel is a tasty treat any time of year that beets are available - and lucky for you, we are just starting to harvest the first of our beets!  Tender, baked falafel patties are adorned with a green goddess dressing and pickled veggies, atop a bed of cous cous.

Contains wheat.

Choice C: GF Beet Falafel (vegan, gluten-free)

Beet falafel, green goddess dressing and pickled veggies, atop a bed of brown rice.

Please PRE-ORDER BY SUNDAY MIDNIGHT!  Thank you. xo

Choice A:  Pasta Alfredo with Rainbow Chard (vegan)

These organic whole-wheat trumpet-shaped noodles by Sfoglini (Brooklyn, NY) are good enough to eat on their own, but when they are smothered in a creamy, cashew-based alfredo sauce, life takes on a whole new meaning.  Toss with some minced chives and sauteed rainbow chard for a new take on comfort food!

Contains wheat, cashews.

Choice B:  Pasta Alfredo with Rainbow Chard (vegan, gluten-free)

The same dish as Choice A, but with rice-based pasta for a gluten-free meal.

Contains cashews.

Choice C: Peanutty Lentils with Spinach and Jasmine Rice (vegan, gluten-free)

We firmly believe that peanut sauce can go with anything, but there are some matches that are really made in heaven, and peanut sauce + red lentils are one of them.  Simmered with an assortment of veggies, including local organic spinach, and served atop a fluffy bed of white jasmine rice (organic, grown in CA),  this meal makes the perfect breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner!

Contains peanut, coconut.

Please PRE-ORDER BY 8AM MONDAY for a Friday pick-up at Quest or Frinklepod.

Choice B:  Jerk Jackfruit Tacos (vegan, gluten-free)

The food world is all abuzz about jackfruit!  Simmered in Jamaican jerk seasonings, jackfruit will meet roasted sweet potatoes, pineapple, and cabbage slaw, and together they will make their way into your mouth via organic corn tortillas from Tortilleria Pachanga (Portland, ME).  And your life will never be the same.

Choice A: Fiddlehead-Quinoa- Tofu Bowl  (V, GF)

Fiddlehead season is a fleeting moment in New England, celebrated with much anticipation by anyone who has tried these immature little ferns.  Never had one?

This egg-less frittata gets its secret power from chickpea flour and is loaded with caramelized onions, spinach, and Italian-inspired herbs.  Top it with some housemade marinara and a sprinkle of flavorful, dairy-free parmesan.

Also known as "bok choy," "chinese cabbage," and "soup spoon," pac choi is a nutrient-dense green and crunchy powerhouse that also happens to be growing like gangbusters at Frinklepod right now!  This sweet & crunchy green communes with crimini mushrooms, cashews, and onions in a brown ginger sauce, all paired with tangy pickled carrots, lacto-fermented by Gracie's Garden (Standish, ME) over a bed of white jasmine rice.

Contains: Cashews, Soy (organic)

Ever heard of Emmer?  Didn't think so.  Emmer is an ancient ancestor of wheat - high in protein and low in gluten, making it a great choice for people who are sensitive to more common, hybridized types of wheat.
