The cookbook selection for September is The Good Berry Cookbook by Tashia Hart

The publisher describes the book:

Explore the natural history, ecological contributions, and cultural significance of manoomin (wild rice), and savor complementary wild foods and local flavors with more than seventy-five inspired recipes, including favorites from over a dozen Indigenous cooks from various nations. … Hart shares foraging tips and basic preparations that equip home cooks to expand their repertoire. …Through storytelling and science, she emphasizes food as medicine: good choices for our environment and good choices for our plate unite as we enjoy the benefits the good berry and its botanical neighbors have to offer.

In the recipe club this month we will discuss these recipes:

  • Quinoa and Wild Rice Porridge – pg 67

Wild Rice, available in any grocery store, is an acceptable substitute for manoomin. Any ripe red plums should be an acceptable substitute for wild plums in the Sunshine Smoothie recipe.
