Well and Good: Bulk It Up

Want value and quality? We’ve got it here at FRESH, especially in the Bulk Department! Whether you need a teaspoon or a gallon, we’ve got it! And, because you’re not paying for the manufacturer’s label or packaging, you get a great deal.

Let’s say that your friends are all talking about a new super-food and you want to try it, but you’re not too sure you’ll like it. When you buy in bulk, you can get just enough to make a serving, without having a lot left over in your pantry. If you love it, you know where to get more!

If you haven’t visited us in the bulk section, here’s a great recipe to get you started:

Spicy Lemon Quinoa

Ingredients:
2 cups quinoa
Salt, to taste
2 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
2 tsp lemon zest
1/2 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:
Place quinoa in a fine mesh sieve. Rinse under cold water until water runs clear. Transfer to a medium sauce pan, add 1 teaspoon salt and 2 1/4 cups water. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until water is completely absorbed, 18 to 20 minutes.

Transfer quinoa to a medium bowl along with pine nuts, lemon zest, parsley, cumin and cayenne; drizzle with lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper; toss until well combined. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Doesn’t this recipe sound delicious? If you weren’t buying in bulk, you would need an entire bottle of cumin, cayenne and black pepper, as well as a bottle of olive oil, a box of quinoa and a bag of pine nuts to try it. Instead, you can buy the exact measurements of the recipe and save over half! And just because you’re saving on cost doesn’t mean you’re sacrificing on quality. Our bins are refilled frequently each day, so you can be assured that you’re getting the freshest ingredients possible.

We have so many great ingredients, we guarantee you’ll be inspired! If you find an ingredient you want to try, ask us for a recipe. There’s a good chance we can offer one we love!
