FILLO’S SOFRITO BEANS
In the Caballero family, every family meal they enjoyed as kids had a bowl of beans seasoned with sofrito— vegetables, spices, and herbs cooked in olive oil. Their dad, nicknamed FILLO, taught them that sofrito beans were a part of his own childhood in Cuba and that while humble in origin, they’re packed with flavor and nutrients. All are non-GMO, project verified, shelf-stable, ready to eat, vegan-friendly, plant protein, made with extra virgin olive oil. Try the Carolina Peas & Rice, also known as Hoppin’ John, as these Low country black-eye peas and rice have a little kick from the cayenne and plenty of flavor from celery and thyme. Another favorite is Cuban Congri which is a Cuban staple—not just rice and beans, but rice cooked with beans and sofrito, in extra virgin olive oil. Fillo’s preparation is as traditional as it gets. Just heat, grab a spoon and dive in! Sale $2.99 each.
GARDENCUT ZUCCHINI NOODLES
“Zoodles” is a nickname for zucchini noodles or spaghetti-like strands made from spiralized, raw zucchini and other squash. They contain no flour or wheat whatsoever and are very low in both calories and carbs. Zoodles are only 30-40 calories per cup. You can eat approximately five cups or more of zoodles for the same number of calories that you’d get from just one cup of regular wheat-based pasta! And only 5 net carbs per cup! All types of summer squash, including green zucchini and yellow squash, are lower in calories and much lower in natural sugars and starch than grains or even some other root vegetables, so they have lower scores on the glycemic index. This is ideal for people who need help normalizing blood sugar levels, especially those who are diabetic or prediabetic. Zoodles are loaded with vitamins, fiber, potassium and other nutrients. They can be eaten raw or cooked in 2-5 minutes and are gluten-free. Try our fresh-made zoodles. Perfect for our recipe of the month, Zucchini Noodle Primavera! Check it out here. Sale $4.39
