Sweeten an onion with baking soda: make a solution of 1 tablespoon of baking soda in 1 cup of water. Put sliced, chopped, or minced onion in a bowl with enough of the baking soda solution to cover. Let sit for 15 minutes, then drain, rinse well, and drain again. Baking soda neutralizes the process that creates the harsh tasting sulphur compounds, without washing out all the flavor.

Recipe: Leeks Vinaigrette

DIY: Leeks Vinaigrette (click through to see photo tutorial for cleaning leeks)

The extra-sharp, fresh mustard from the DIY: Mustard recipe is great for making leeks vinaigrette!

Related to onions and garlic, with a milder, sweeter flavor, leeks are great for adding a savory note to cooked dishes like soup and pasta. Structurally, leeks look like super sized green onions with a fan of leaves at the top. The thin layers need to be washed thoroughly to remove soil and grit, which is why most instructions have you halve the stem vertically, and then washing under a faucet or in a bowl of water, gently fanning out the layers.

Eat Local Ingredient: Wing Beans

Eat Local Ingredient: Wing Beans

Tasting like a combination of green beans and asparagus, with a crisp-tender texture like a snow pea, wing beans can be used in similar ways. 



A common vegetable in South Asia and Southeast Asia, wing beans thrive in hot climates with long sunny days, and grow well in Hawaii, making this a great choice for local farmers and for eating locally produced food. Packed with protein and calcium, wing beans are valued for nutritional and medicinal properties as well as a delicious vegetable.



Easy to add to stir-fries, curries, and soups, if you haven't cooked or eaten wing beans before, you can try this simple, quick stir-fry as a side dish. The pinch of sugar is used to help keep the beans bright green, and can be omitted. 



For each bag of wing beans:

1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed (about 1 tsp)

1 slice ginger or galangal, minced (about 1 tsp)

1 Tbs oil (coconut or a bland vegetable oil)

pinch of sugar (optional)

salt or soy sauce to taste



Clean the wing beans by rinsing with water, then snapping off the stems. Slice crosswise, about 1/2" thick. 



Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan over medium-high heat. To test the heat, throw in a slice of wing bean - if it sizzles immediately, the pan is ready.…

Kasha Cakes

Kasha Cakes: Michael, one of the Kokua Market bakers, has created these kasha cakes. Made with vegan and gluten free ingredients (gluten free oats, organic buckwheat flour, organic buckwheat groats, organic coconut oil, Sucanat, and flax seeds), these chewy, dense bars have a wonderful, naturally sweet grain flavor that gets even better as you chew! They make a great breakfast or quick snack on the go.

kasha = buckwheat groats 
groat = grain
Sucanat = evaporated sugar cane juice
