Wellspent Market – A Giveaway, A Party and Citrusy Tang, Oh My!
New York Shuk’s spices and condiments make it easy to bring Middle Eastern flavors to your kitchen. This simple chickpea dish features the complex flavors of the Moroccon spice blend called ras el hanout and gets a citrusy tang from a few spoonfuls of their preserved lemon paste.
Cook a couple of shallots in olive oil until nicely browned.
Add the ras el hanout and preserved lemon along with some canned tomatoes, then stir in cooked chickpeas.
Simmer for a few minutes to let the flavors blend and top with a pinch of smoked chili flakes or harissa, sliced green onions, and chopped parsley or mint.
Head to our Instagram to win New York Shuk’s whole spice collection, and stay tuned for more inspiration on how to make the most of them in your own kitchen.
Over the last 20 years, we’ve built strong relationships with the small farmers who produce our Italian olive oils, and we know each of them personally. We know they send us the best extra virgin olive oil, and in turn they know we’ll help keep their farms in business, because we pay them upfront. And this year we’re getting more oil than ever. That’s where you come in!
Every spring, we offer our customers a chance to participate in our Olive Oil CSA* to help us continue supporting our small farm partners. It works like this: Until the end of May, you can buy a CSA share for $100. 60 days after purchase, that share converts and is worth $120, and it’s good for anything we sell. Italy is slowly opening up and we expect to receive our container of fresh oils in July.
*We know it’s not technically a CSA, but who wants to read about Olive Oil Futures?
