Welcome to the June Food Guide Newsletter!
This month we feature: 4 new recipes in celebration of National Indigenous History Month.
Developed by Indigenous chef, Joseph Shawana, this month we feature recipes with Indigenous roots. Traditional foods—and the way they are obtained—are linked to culture, identity, way of life, and overall health for Indigenous people in Canada.
Corn plays a large part in some indigenous cooking. Serve the cornbread with stew or chili, or enjoy a slice with fruit as a snack.
This delicious recipe combines the techniques of Chinese fried rice with ingredients that are indigenous to Canada. Wild ginger, wild garlic, and ramps can be found at farmers’ markets when in season.
This indigenous-inspired simple soup brings together fresh smoked fish and flavourful foraged ingredients. White hominy corn is one of many varieties of corn. It is larger and does not overcook in water, which makes it ideal to use in soups.
Cornmeal is made from corn, a food that has been grown by some Indigenous communities and in Canada for a long time. Serve these muffins with your favourite side of fruit.
