Though having a restricted diet is rarely ideal, there has never been a better time in history to eat a vegan or gluten free diet thanks to the sheer amount of businesses now carrying alternative food products. California-headquartered Edward & Sons Trading Company is one example offering a range of organic vegetarian specialties, three of which we take a look in this blog post.
Based on traditionally brewed tamari — a dark and tangy Japanese sauce derived from soybeans instead of wheat — things are kicked up a notch thanks to a proprietary blend of ginger, garlic puree and toasted sesame oil.
The result is a rich flavour that isn’t overly salty or sweet and even has a hint of spiciness thanks to the black pepper among the list of ingredients. Perfect to complement a stir-fry or marinade, it’s quite strong so only a little is needed while cooking.
Though you can find an organic option for darn near every type of foodstuff nowadays, croutons can at times still be challenging. Enter this variety by Edward & Sons bursting with actual herb and onion taste.
The bite-sized croutons somehow manage to stay crunch even long after they’re opened and are a delicious complement to a fresh garden salad or hot bowl of soup. Or try snacking on them straight out of the bag.
Gluten-averse individuals no longer have to miss out on the joys of baking thanks to grain-free Let’s Do Organic Cassava Flour. The main ingredient cassava root is native to South Africa and is popular in tropical diets due to the vegetable being drought resistant and high in carbohydrate content.
First carefully washed, peeled and dried before milling to enhance edibility and preserve nutrients, it can be substituted 1:1 for regular flour when making goodies like cakes and cookies. Or try it as a cornstarch replacement to thicken sauces and gravies. Kosher Certified.
