Let’s get growin’!

Green Lentils

There’s just no lentil more gentle than this here green lentil! It’s been gracing the tables of Peasants & Kings since 8,000 BC.

Brown Rice

As they say, the browner the rice, the more packed with goodness. They’re actual seeds from rice plants with husks removed.

Yellow Split Peas

These little peas are like distant Southwest Asian cousins…if you were a green lentil. The Sanskrit word DAL in fact, means, ‘to split’.

Dried Onion Flakes

Dried onions will make you smile! Partly because they won’t make you cry, but are also good for headaches…and heart disease.


Hello, history lesson: Carrots are literally the root of all root vegetables…’stemming’ way back to the 10th Century.


Talk about a zinger of a vegetable! Literally, ginger is a member of the Zingiberaceae family and a close relative to turmeric.

Sweet Potato

The mighty sweet potato. An ‘elite potato’ whopping with flavour and Vitamin A, originating in its girth, from the Morning Glory Family.


This is a hardy biennial plant. As small and weak seedlings, they can grow in winter and push through heavy, crusty soil. Here’s to life!

Sesame Seeds

“Open sesame,” as the Ancients said. It may well be the oldest food accessory we know of.  Really opens up the Know Meat!

Sunflower Seeds

You’ll be walking on sunshine high on protein with these not-so-little seeds rich in healthy fats, and antioxidants to boot!


WT-Flax! A happy gut is a healthy gut and flax seed has had a starring role in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years.

Gluten-Free Oats

The hardiest of all grains, it helps slow absorption of glucose into the body better than a Hall & Oates album.


We like salt. If we didn’t we’d die. It’s THE source of sodium and chloride ions in our diet and takes just a pinch to ward off slugs.


Fun fact: Black Pepper accounts for about 20% of the world’s spice trade and is eaten on everything by everyone everywhere.

Curry Powder

This blend of spices, from the Tamil word ‘Kari’ varies per region but coriander, turmeric, cumin, and red chilies are staples.

Tapioca Starch

South American tuber Cassava root is naturally gluten-free and is a great wheat substitute for gluten-free diets.

Lemon Juice

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade…and when you can add lemon to a recipe, know you’re adding zest to your life!

How to Cook

Lightly coat the bottom of a pan with an oil of your choice (could be a light olive oil or go coconut). Alternatively, use any desired amount, cook when oil gets hot in a pan on medium to high heat for about 5 -7 minutes per side. If you crisp them up a little bit, it really brings out the flavour.

Cook from frozen.
