About Organic Shallots

Shallots or eschalots are bulbs in the Allium family of root vegetables. In general, they differ from onions in being smaller, and grow in clusters of bulbs from each plant root system. The bulbs have less sharp in pungency than that of onions and garlic which makes them one of the favourites of chefs all around the world. Shallots are high in Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Manganese, Vitamin C, Folate and Potassium. They are rich source of flavonoid antioxidants such as quercetin, kaempferol...etc. Further, they contain sulphur antioxidant compounds such as diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulphide and allyl propyl disulfide. These compounds convert to allicin through enzymatic action following disruption of their cell surfaces by actions like crushing, cutting...etc. Research studies show that allicin reduces cholesterol production by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase enzyme in the liver cells. Further, it also found to have antibacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal activities. They are also good in minerals and electrolytes than onions particularly iron, calcium, copper, potassium, and phosphorus. To prepare, trim the ends using paring knife. Then peel the outer 2-3 layers of skin until you find fresh thick pinkish-white whorls. They may be used as a whole or you can slice or cut them into fine cubes/rings depending upon the recipe type in way similar to onions. Shallot butter is a tasty addition to many grilled dishes.

Wonderful quality.

By Sarah Summers on 28/05/2020

Shallots are fantastic for adding whole to a vegetable casserole. Especially if you like an onion flavour. These are great.

Sublime Faux Gras : a Vegan Alternative to Foie Gras Recipe

Summary: Who knew that a mixture of onion, mushrooms, green lentils, nuts, beetroot, fresh herbs and lemon juice could produce such an incredibly delicious and realistic alternative to one of the most controversial yet popular French delicacies, Foie Gras ? Enter Faux Gras. This Mushroom and Lentil pâté tastes very much like real Foie Gras, but is brimming with plant-based nutrition, and more importantly, comes without the unkind treatment to ducks and geese. But this Faux Gras is not just a vegan alternative to Foie Gras, it is also an exceptionally tasty vegan spread in its own right : it is hands down the best pâté, vegan or otherwise, that I have ever tasted. Don't be put off by the fairly long list of ingredients, the recipe is actually really easy and straightforward.

Raw Alkalising Heirloom Tomato, Avocado and Spirulina Salad Recipe

Summary: Perfectly ripe heirloom tomatoes are so delicious that the best way to do them justice is to eat them as a salad, simply dressed with lemon juice and olive oil. This salad is a twist to that, with added spirulina and avocado. Spirulina crunchies only contain spirulina, they have no added ingredient, but somehow the way they are produced makes them taste different from powdered spirulina, and add a crunchy element to this salad. But of course, you can use spirulina powder if you can't get the crunchies. If you can, leave the sea salt out ; the salad is naturally and delicately salted by the addition of seaweed. You may use any sea vegetable you have on hand, I like to use dulse because it is thought to contain Sodium, Potassium and its other minerals in a ratio that is suited for human health.
