Broccoli Chili Pancetta Penne

 

A classic southern Italian pasta dish - you cook the broccoli until soft in the same water as the pasta. The key to this tasty dish is that, once the pasta and broccoli are drained, you fry them a little in garlicky olive oil before serving. You can substitute anchovies for pancetta and salty pecorino, a more authentic southern-style cheese, for parmesan.

300g penne
1 head of broccoli, broken up into smallish florets
Few tbsp extra virgin olive oil
80g pancetta or bacon 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp chili flakes
1 tbsp chopped parsley (optional)
Grated parmesan to serve
Cook penne in plenty of boiling salted water.

When half-cooked, add the broccoli. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat, add some of the oil and cook pancetta until crispy. Add the garlic and chili, stir until lightly golden and remove from heat.

Drain pasta and broccoli - the broccoli should be soft and broken up - and add to the pan of garlic and pancetta, cook for a few minutes, tossing and adding a touch more pepper, salt and oil. Serve with parsley, if using, and parmesan.

 

Frequently Asked Questions About Organic

What does Biodynamic mean?

Short definition: a method of organic farming that incorporates certain astrological and spiritual principles and practices.

Longer definition: According to the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association, Biodynamic agriculture is based on individuals considering every aspect of the food system, "From how land is owned to how farms are capitalized to how food is produced, distributed and prepared." Additionally, Biodynamic agriculture recognizes that the entire planet is a "Single, self-regulating, multi-dimensional ecosystem."

So, by philosophy, Biodynamic farmers attempt to create a farm and farming system that is as self-regulating as possible and that supports biodiversity so that land and local communities remain healthy and vital.

Based on inspiration drawn from the spiritual-scientific insights of Rudolf Steiner, the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association was founded in 1938 and there are strict rules regarding this method of agriculture. Food products labeled "biodynamic" must be certified by an independent third party according to standards set by the Demeter® Biodynamic Farm Standard.

What does Organic mean?

Short definition: food produced without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial chemicals.

Longer definition: organic food is food which is produced using environmentally and animal friendly farming methods on organic farms. These methods are legally defined and any food sold as 'organic' must be strictly regulated. Organic farming recognises the direct connection between our health and how the food we eat is produced. Artificial fertilisers are banned and farmers develop fertile soil by rotating crops and using compost, manure and clover. Organic food is food produced in a way that complies with organic standards set by national governments and international organizations.

 What does I.P.M mean?

Integrated pest management (IPM) is a broad-based approach that integrates a range of practices for economic control of pests. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN defines IPM as “the careful consideration of all available pest control techniques and subsequent integration of appropriate measures that discourage the development of pest populations and keep pesticides and other interventions to levels that are economically justified and reduce or minimize risks to human health and the environment”. IPM emphasizes the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to agro-ecosystems and encourages natural pest control mechanisms. This includes managing insects, plant pathogens and weeds.

What does “Local – Spray Free”mean?

Fruit and veg grown locally, pesticides and fungicides are not used in the growing process.

There is no certifying organization for Spray free produce, however, the owner of this shop, Greenie, knows everything about everybody and about their plants.

Juicing for Success!!

With reported health benefits such as increased energy, weight loss, mental clarity, better digestion, reduced pain, glowing skin, a stronger immune system and needing less sleep, why would one choose not to juice?

It seems, no matter what your goal, juicing has something to contribute.

Juicing is a fantastic way to boost nutrient intake. Unlike synthetic multivitamin and mineral formulas, all of the nutrients in fresh, raw juice are readily available and recognized by our bodies. Fresh, raw juices offer a myriad of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants.

Enzymes aid digestion and if we have surplus amounts, act similar to antioxidants in the body, scavenging for free radicals such as those associated with degenerative diseases like cancer. They also help to eliminate debris from the body, for example, scar tissue around old injuries.

Much energy is used for digestion, so when we intake more nutrients, with less digestion required, our energy levels soar.

However, be aware that not all juice is equal. Commercial juice is generally pasteurized and therefore devoid of nutrients and high in sugar.

It is not only nutrients that are concentrated through juicing. Chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are also concentrated when we juice and over time can contribute to significant health problems, especially in children. Peeling produce does not get rid of these toxins. We must therefore be mindful to use organic fruits and vegetables.

Furthermore, organic produce contains more nutrients, tastes better and supports a more sustainable planet!

For best results, juice mainly vegetables, as sugars become quite concentrated in fruit juices. Include beetroots for liver detoxification, ginger for circulation, carrots for eyesight, celery for eliminating cellulite, turmeric for reducing inflammation and greens for minerals and overall health. A little lemon and apple can be added for taste.

Happy Juicing!
