Treats for grown-ups
Vol. 14 No. 10

Fortify yourself for the trick or treaters and the chilly weather with a one-dish meal that uses Fabrique Délices Chorizo: Hearty Chorizo and Vegetable Soup, above.

Serve Sweet Potato, Chipotle and Apple Soup in a mug, so you can easily put it down when trick or treaters come to the door. Two oils from Stella Cadente Olive Oil give it extraordinary flavor: Everyday Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Blood Orange Olive Oil.

The snack mixes from Becca's Petites come in both savory and sweet flavors. All are grain-free, dairy-free, non-GMO, and vegan. One of their savory mixes will jazz up any soup. Try Split Pea Soup with Savoureux Mix, above.

Potato, parsley, carrots, and peas go into Potato Kuku, above, from Oyna Natural Foods . A traditional Persian snack, Kuku is similar to frittata, but contains much less egg and much more herbs and vegetables. Oyna has 4 flavors of Kuku.

A couple of surprise ingredients give 21 Missions Organics's recipe for Pork Tenderloin in Orange Caramel Agave Sauce, above, rich and satisfying flavor, perfect for the fall season.

Wild Planet's recipe for Tuna Melt Panini, above, is a quick, healthy supper before the fun begins. Ranked #1 by Greenpeace for their sustainability mission, Wild Planet’s seafood line includes top quality Tuna, Salmon, Sardines, Anchovies, Mackerel, Yellowtail and Shrimp.

Lamb, olives and feta pair beautifully with orzo pasta in this recipe from Stella Cadente Olive Oil, which is made with their Extra Virgin Olive Oil and finished with their Rosemary Olive Oil: Orzo with Lamb, Olives, and Feta.

Giddy Up Nuts makes Pumpkin Spice Nuts, perfect for the season. Their 6 flavors of spiced almonds are all-natural, non-GMO and gluten-free.

Here's cookie dough that's meant to be eaten raw: Pumpkin Cookie Dough Bites, above, made with nutrient-rich Kween Foods Granola Butter.

Fire Cider is an old-timey concoction that's never made exactly the same way twice. At heart it’s a medicinal drink. The idea is to jam a bunch of savory ingredients into a jar with vinegar, let it infuse for a few weeks, then strain it and mix it with Raw Massey Honey Co..

Mendocino Tea Company / Tuber Tonic. Their specialty is Organic Tuber Tonic, made with turmeric, ginger, elderberries, cinnamon and black pepper. It has become their best selling herbal infusion, because it's tasty hot or cold and energizing, even though it contains no caffeine. Try the Tuber Tonic Toddy.

Wild Rice Stuffed Sweet Potatoes are made with so many healthy and tasty ingredients, including Fall River Wild Rice, which makes it a hearty main vegetarian dish or side dish.

For a side dish with a little kick, there's Beans with Chili Paste, above, with perfectly balanced heat and flavor from the paste made by Wild West Ferments.

Engage Organics salt-free herb blends give a deep flavor to this crock-pot vegetarian dish. It can be made ahead and served as a side or a main course. Barley with Spinach and Walnuts, above.

Dramatically fun and even easy to make: Halloween Dirt Cups use the premium Sonoma Syrup Co. Vanilla Bean Extract Crush.

Make ahead and then enjoy on Halloween evening: Pumpkin Toffee Bars, made with the so-versatile B.toffee Bits.

Young and not-so-young will all get a kick out of Skeleton Cookies from Bovine Bakery. Pick some up and enjoy the coastal scenery in Pt. Reyes Station.

How to be a very popular Halloween party host? Serve Candied Pecan Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars, above. (Make sure you don't eat all the Black Bow Sweets Candied Pecans before you make the bars.)

Nothing scary about this treat! Brittle"s Almond Brittle and Peanut Brittle are uniquely soft, flaky, and amazingly delicious. Plus, they are vegan, gluten-free, and packed with nuts.

Zoie's Harvest Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, above, will be popular with Halloween reveelers of any age. Made with AtheenOats granola.

CompletEats Banana Bread Cookies are the basis for a homemade candy bar that's a treat for adults and kids: Homemade “Twix” Bars, above.
