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.

Vegan Gluten Free Tofu and Apple stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe

Summary: Everyone loves stuffed bell peppers. They often look stunning and impressive, yet they are really easy to make : just halve the peppers, fill them with the tasty mixture of your choice, pop them in the oven, and there you have it. When it comes to the filling, your imagination is the only limit. In these ones, I used a mixture of tofu, rice, amaranth, apple and herbs.

Raw Vegan Cheesy Green Black Red Kale Chips Recipe

Summary: Most (all ?) of us don't eat enough green leafy vegetables. Kale is perhaps the healthiest of all, and kale chips are the tastiest way to include more of this green leafy wonder into your diet. The nutritional yeast gives them a lovely cheesy flavour, without the dairy. This recipe uses 3 sorts of kale and is for raw dehydrated kale chips, so you need a dehydrator. Alternatively, you can use an oven set on the lowest heat possible.
