HOW TO MAKE-Fresh Pizza Dough



Due to the volume of reservations Lucy's Spice Box has for Friday night's dinner at Element in Sutter Creek, she will be keeping the menu light this week. Still delicious and healthy! Her offerings will be in the refrigerator to help yourselves, then purchase with Hillary at her station. See you tomorrow!

Garlic Butter Rice with Kale

Ingredients: (local and organic when you can)

Marinated Kale:

  • 7 cups kale sliced leaves, tightly packed
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds (or other nuts / seeds of choice)

    Garlic Butter Rice:
    2 tbsp  unsalted butter
  • 3 - 4 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked white rice
  • 2 1/4 cups chicken broth (or vegetable)
  • Finishing:
  • 1 - 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup chopped almonds (or other nuts / seeds of choice)


  • Place kale in a large bowl. Drizzle over oil, sprinkle with a small pinch of salt and pepper. Scrunch with hands for 30 seconds, set aside while rice cooks.
  • Melt butter in a large pot over medium high heat. Add garlic and stir for 1 minute until just starting to turn golden and is incredibly fragrant.
  • Add rice, stir for 10 seconds.
  • Add broth, stir, then cover.
  • Turn heat down to medium or medium low so the liquid is simmering very gently. Cook for 12 - 15 minutes until all liquid is absorbed (tilt pot to check).
  • Quickly toss all the kale on top of the rice, put the lid back on then remove from heat.
  • Rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Fluff rice with fork, stirring kale through.
  • Lastly, stir through extra butter and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve and sprinkle over nuts (or stir nuts through rice).

The Mother Lode Exchange
is an Earth conscious organization.
We know you love our PLANET too!
Let's all do our part.

"It is estimated that at least eight million tons of plastic waste is added to the world's oceans each year.

Plastic can remain in the environment for over 1,000 years before it begins to decompose.

And if we continue at the rate we're going, studies predict that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight.

As many as one trillion plastic bags that are produced each year are discarded after 15 minutes of use."



Think about how much petroleum is needed
to produce all of this plastic...

That's why we would like to encourage our awesome customers to bring your own reusable produce and shopping bags. Our vendors will also be working towards using less plastic packaging.

"It's up to us to make this thing last."
