Organic Rising

Help make a new organic film with this
awesome Indiegogo fundraising campaign!

ORGANIC RISING official trailer from Anthony on Vimeo.

We were so beyond thrilled to hear about a new film in the works that FINALLY highlights the goodness and growth of organics! Organic Rising, directed by Pulitzer Prize and Emmy Award winning photojournalist Anthony Suau is an inspiring documentary that will feature an in-depth look at the rise of the organic food movement in America. 

Anthony and his crew will travel throughout the country filming some of the major leaders in the organic movement including the awesome, Ronnie Cummins founder and Director of the Organic Consumers Association, Mark Kastel of the Cornucopia Institute, Maria Rodale, CEO of Rodale, Inc. and our star seed protector  Vandana Shiva. They will also visit with some inspiring organic farmers with a passion to grow healthy, sustainable food that is healthy for people and the planet and Miles McEvoy, Deputy Administrator at the USDA who will explain the organic standards.

We can help fund the final production of Organic Rising, by supporting their Indiegogo Campaign. With only four days left in the campaign, they’ve happily surpassed their goal
of $50,000 and can use the extra funds to visit more organic farms and perhaps shoot some aerial photography scenes, bring a higher value to the finished film and maybe even make it to Asheville’s 13th Organicfest celebration!

Under the Weather Miso Soup by Miso Master Miso

Winter Goodness

As another winter snow storm forces everyone to tuck themselves inside somewhere safe and warm, I can’t help hearing the song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside” over and over in my head.

This extreme weather seems to brew plenty of opportunities to catch a cold, especially if your immunity is challenged. Just this morning, my granddaughter called to tell me that she was sick with a cold! I recommended three of my favorite natural remedies: miso soup, fresh garlic and rest.

Miso is simply one of the most important ingredients to have on hand for everything from tasty culinary delights to soothing, nourishing soups for when you are under
the weather. My very first “natural” meal
cooked and served to me by my new boyfriend (now my husband, Organic Chef Tom) 36 years ago included a memorable bowl of miso soup. It has been a staple in
my organic kitchen ever since.

One of my favorites is Miso Master® Organic Miso made right here in the U.S.A., about an hour from our home town of Asheville, NC. (Can’t get more local than that!) Miso Master® Miso is traditionally aged and made with high quality, organic and GMO-free ingredients.
The story behind this unique American made miso is an interesting one that we will be sharing in more detail very soon. In the meantime, I invite you to visit Great Eastern Sun’s website for more information about their misos and for more yummy Miso Master® Miso recipes for all 7 varieties of their miso.

Wow... the snow is really coming down now! Time to warm up the kitchen and cook up a nourishing meal for our family. Stay warm,
be safe and eat well.

Miso Master® Miso RECIPE

Under the Weather Miso Soup

Serves 6 - 8

This soup is sure to stop any cold in its tracks, even better than Grandma’s chicken soup!

• 2 quarts Stock or Filtered Water
• 2 bulbs Garlic, Peeled
• 1 Bay Leaf, Minced
• 4 Tbsp MISO MASTER® Organic Kosher    Country Barley Miso
• 1 tsp Finely Grated Ginger
• Whole Grain Bread, Toasted
• Green Onion for Garnish

Bring stock or water, garlic, and bay leaf to boil. Simmer 15 minutes, or until garlic is soft. Remove bay leaf. Mix miso, garlic, ginger, and stock in blender. Reheat in pot, but do not boil. Place cubes of bread at bottom of bowl and ladle hot soup over them. Garnish with green onion.

Universal Marinade
YIELD: 1 Cup

• Ό cup MISO MASTER® Organic Kosher Country Barley Miso
• 6 Tbsp Mirin or cooking sherry
• 6 Tbsp dry Red wine
• 2 Tbsp Brown Rice Vinegar
• 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 Tbsp finely grated fresh ginger

This versatile marinade is great for flavoring meat, fish, poultry, tofu, tempeh, or vegetables before grilling, broiling, or roasting. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well, until miso is dissolved. Use immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
