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.

Vegetarian Spring Vegetable Risotto Recipe

Summary: Celebrate longer and sunnier days with this risotto. Feel free to include any spring vegetables and herbs locally available to you. The secret technique here is not to boil, overcook or even steam the vegetables, but simply braise them. This way, you retain the vibrant colour, crunchiness and all the fresh tastes so characteristic of spring vegetables. That's what makes this spring vegetable risotto utterly delicious and so special !

Vegetarian Roasted Beetroot and Preserved Lemon Salad Recipe

Summary: Preserved lemons give this salad a lovely Middle Eastern touch. They are very salty, though, and so are feta or halloumi, so don't salt the beetroots. If you don't have them, you can also use blanched lemon slices, in which case you might choose to salt the beetroots. For a warm salad, do not allow the beetroots to cool completely, and maybe swap the feta for grilled halloumi. In this case, serve immediately, as halloumi gets hard if allowed to sit too long after grilling. Serves 4 as a starter or 2 as a main dish (you can add some cooked quinoa to make it a more substantial meal).
