Red Brown Rice | Anfu Only (gluten free, vegetarian, dairy free, nut free)
Hunter Gatherer Anfu gets a special treat this season with this new base: Red Brown Rice.

Tamale Stuffed Bell Peppers (gluten free, vegetarian, nut free)
Colorful and healthy Tamale Stuffed Bell Peppers are a fresh vegetarian take on the Mesoamerican classic. Sweet red bell pepper halves are filled with a delicate seasoned mix of cornmeal and corn, then baked in an oven until tender. Slices of spicy finger peppers bring the heat to this festive dish.
Ingredients: Bell peppers, cornmeal, corn, finger peppers, onion, rice vinegar, salt, sugar, grass fed butter, cilantro
Pea Falafel (gluten free, vegetarian, dairy free)
Falafel is a popular comfort food packed with vegetarian protein, but the original fried version is not very healthy and is high in fat. That’s why we’ve whipped up the oven-baked Pea Falafel, a healthier alternative that has all the crunch and flavor without the deep-frying. Made with chickpeas, peas, and carrots, these veggie-rich falafels are seasoned with tahini, garlic, and a squeeze of lemon juice.
Ingredients: Chickpeas, peas, carrots, parsley, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, cornstarch, salt
Zesty Chili Soy Mushrooms (gluten free, vegetarian, dairy free)
Spicy, tangy, and a touch sour, the Zesty Chili Soy Mushrooms is a dish guaranteed to wake up your taste buds. Nutty and buttery Brown Beech mushrooms are cooked with milder, velvety trumpet mushrooms for a dish rich in Vitamin D. The mushrooms are tossed in a zesty soy dressing including chili flakes, lemongrass, lime, and soy sauce as well as finger peppers and mint for a complex flavor profile.
Ingredients: Trumpet mushrooms, Brown Beech mushrooms, finger peppers, mint, zesty soy dressing
Coconut Lime Dragon Beans (gluten free, vegetarian)
Dragon beans, also known as winged beans, are a unique and beautiful type of bean from the hot tropics that looks unlike its smoother cousins. Grown with four sides and crinkled “wings,” the unusual dragon beans are also a surprisingly rich source of protein and B-complex vitamins. We dress up the power-house green with shiitake mushrooms, crushed peanuts, and spicy finger peppers, then toss the mix with a coconut lime dressing that’ll bring you back to the beans’ tropical origins.
Ingredients: Winged beans, Shiitake mushrooms, crushed peanuts, garlic, shallots, finger peppers, coconut lime dressing
New England Clam Chowder (nut free)
Hearty chowder is a go-to favorite in autumn. Cooked with generous chunks of clam meat and potato, our New England Clam Chowder is comforting, thick, and creamy thanks to a delicious blend of grass-fed cream and Asahi milk seasoned with garlic, leek, butter, and onion.
Ingredients: Clam meat, potatoes, onions, celery, garlic, leeks, grass-fed cream, Asahi milk
