Beautiful Handcrafted Candles

After our successful handmade candle workshop, our friend Marisa from Primal Essence got to work and brought us these beautiful candles made by her and available in our store starting this month.

The candles are made from soy wax, natural derived fragrance, natural derived color and wooden wicks. The wooden wick gives it a distinctive touch as it emits a sound similar to cracking wood in the fireplace. How cozy! The superior quality essential oils highlight natural aromas such as vanilla, orchid and cedar among others.

If you still don't know what to give on this Mother's Day, come to our store and get a handmade candle made with love. We can help you choose between different sizes, colors and aromas.

Let’s make our garden alive!

Spring is here but we are still working on beautifying our garden. Last year our neighbors and friends helped us by donating plants and volunteering for a while making our little backyard more pleasant for everyone. This year we need extra hands again to revive the summer ecosystem, attracting bees and butterflies among others.

Would you like to participate? You can stop by our store whenever you want during our opening hours. Do you have extra plants in your house but don't have enough space or time to take care of them? Bring them and plant them in our garden! Here we have everything we need to get to work. See you!

New Product – Tempeh!

We are happy to announce that from March onwards we have started to collaborate with our friends from Boonzaak who make delicious and very special tempeh.

The main ingredient used in their tempeh is the North Dutch white Krombek bean, one of the few Dutch white bean varieties left in The Netherlands. It is characterized by its soft taste and creamy texture. The fermentation process brings these features out nicely, giving at the same time a salty note.

But what tempeh is? Tempeh is a traditional Indonesian food product that is made originally from fermented soybeans. The fermentation process gives a firm texture and a nutty, earthy flavour. It can be considered as a superfood as it is known for being a rich source of protein, vitamins, and minerals. It is also known for its nutritional benefits and is often used as a meat substitute in vegetarian and vegan diets.

Apart from soybeans, tempeh can be made from other grains and legumes, like the Krombek bean used by Boonzaak.

You can use tempeh in many different ways: it can be grilled, stir-fried, steamed, or used in a variety of dishes such as sandwiches, salads, stews, and more! But it's better to experiment with different marinades, sauces and cooking methods to discover your favourite way to enjoy it. It's a versatile ingredient that can adapt well to various flavours and cuisines.

You can find the tempeh at our store in 250 grams pieces. It come frozen and plastic free! You can also order online and pick up later!

Sustainable Gift Box

Sustainable gift boxes

Christmas is around the corner and it's time to think in your love ones! At Little Plant Pantry we believe in the importance of giving gifts with meaning, and what better than choosing a sustainable gift box that contains products sourced from brands and local artisans, who follow fair labor practices and ethical production standards.

Our new Sustainable Gift Box comes in two different sizes. Both are made with environmental responsibility and with products known for their quality and durability, ensuring that the recipient can enjoy them for an extended period, unlike disposable or cheap alternatives. They promote a conscious consumerism and raise awareness about the impact of our purchasing decisions and inspires others to make more responsible choices.

In a world where every choice we make has an impact, selecting our sustainable gift boxes is a powerful way to show your care for both the recipient and the planet. The act of gifting becomes even more meaningful when it reflects a commitment to responsible, ethical, and environmentally friendly choices.

Check Our Virtual Stamps!

As many of you already know, we have a stamp system in the store: every time you buy over €30, you earn a stamp and when you complete the card you can redeem for one of our delicious main dishes from our kitchen. However, it is easy to forget the card at home or lose it; furthermore, when it is complete, there is no choice but to throw it in the trash.

Now, none of that will be a problem! Thanks to the Magic Stamp application, you can always have your stamp card with you. How does it work? Very easy: download the application, sign up with your mobile number or email, search for Little Plant Pantry in the list, download the card and that's it! We will stamp your virtual card in the store with a special little 'machine'. Get a cookie with your first digital stamp and a main dish with your last one.
We leave you an illustrative video so you can see how simple and fun it is.

Lastly, we are working so that you can also earn stamps for your online purchases. This way everyone has the opportunity to participate!

Soapmaking workshop

This year, several of you have learned through our series of workshops how to create handmade soaps thanks to the guidance of our sustainable cosmetics expert Marisa from Primal Essence.

This has made many more interested in participating; however, spots and space are limited so we cannot accommodate everyone as much as we would like. That is why we have decided to continue organising more soap workshops from now until the end of the year! Take note: our next workshop will take place on Monday, September 25th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at our store in Oud West.

As usual, you do not need to bring any materials, as Marisa will provide you with everything you need! If the weather is merciful, we will hold the workshop in our backyard.

You can buy your ticket here

Mini News

It's time to take a break! From 9th to 22nd of August we will be retired in a remote place in rural Finland. No electricity, no running water, but a sauna and a lake. Could we ask for anything else? I don't think so!
For this reason, our physical store will remain closed, but you can place your orders online whenever you want. We will send them after the 22nd, so we ask for a little patience.

Meanwhile, let us tell you what is coming around the corner:

🌱 We will introduce a change in the purchase process in our physical store. Until now, it's necessary to weigh the containers before refilling and then again after the refilling, to later subtract the weight of the empty container. All this recorded by hand in our "analog scanner" (the white little papers). Starting in September, it will no longer be necessary to weigh the jars or bags twice! One time will be enough, the rest will be done by us (well, the new cash register system!)

🌱 We will start bringing some organic products in glass jars. We know that there are many products that are difficult to sell in bulk, such as tahini, olives, tomato sauce, etc. However, they are basic in the kitchen and always useful to have in the pantry. Also many of you have suggested to have them in our store. That is why we are glad to announce that next month we are inaugurating a small corner with organic products contained in glass jars.

Throughout the coming month and until the end of the year we will be adding more products to this new section. What would you like to find in our store in glass jar? Send us your suggestions!

🌱 Some of you have already seen and tried it. We have a new toy: a machine to make peanut butter! Now you can come to our store and make your own butter, bringing your jar or using one of the ones we have in the 'recycled jars' section. The peanut is natural roasted and, after pressing the magic button, the butter comes all warm and smooth, fresh and ready to eat! Here in the photo, Aaron using it for the first time.

 

 

That is all for now. Remember that our online shop continues to operate during our absence. Orders will be shipped upon our return. Au revoir! 🏔🌲🌼
