Anyone else disturbed by the amount of their grocery bill lately?
With the tumbling loonie, word on the street is grocery costs will continue to rise. It’s all of that fancy imported food we like. Like cauliflower, the caviar of 2016.
Not to worry though, friends. I’m here to give you an insider tip on how to save some sweet cash.
Buy local! Yup. Not only does Ontario still have a good variety of locally available fresh produce (check it out here), you can also buy frozen ‘product of Canada’ fruit and veg. In fact, a lot of it is on sale this time of year. Perfect timing.
Oh, you need some incredibly well tested recipes which feature local foods? I happen to know of a cookbook that’s just the ticket. Homegrown is selling like mad though, so you bes’ be ordering a copy STAT.
This super cinch recipe makes use of Ontario roots – sweet potatoes and carrots. I’ve added a few thai inspired ingredients because thai food kicks ass. Is there a better reason?
Serve it as a side or a starter for any of our other Thai-inspired recipes (um, it seems we’re sort of obsessed with thai food):
