Spring into Healthy Spring Recipes!

This Saturday, April 4th at 10am PST, we will do another Livestream class for young chefs on Tiny Onion’s Facebook page. Join us as we explore one of the more popular veggies for this time of year: the carrot! All root vegetables are great right now because they are both a common holdover from winter storage and they are seeds we may be planting and dreaming into our kitchen gardens everywhere. They are also one of the more inexpensive options. The crunch of a freshly picked and rinsed carrot or radish, is sublime!

The recipes we plan to make Saturday are below so you can plan ahead, and both are intentionally easy to improvise and vary according to your pantry as it is now.

Join us and, as always, these are free classes offered up, but if you have the means to donate to keep this business that has been paused during quarantine chugging along, please find our Venmo and Papal links on the website. And thank you!!
