Roasted Chicken Shawarma Bowl with Tzatziki
This shawarma bowl brings all the right blends of spices and freshness to the table. We start with roasted, marinated chicken and give them a Levantine twist with this shawarma spice blend. Think warm spices like curry, paprika and cinnamon paired with a tangy tzatziki sauce and fresh veggies... a perfect blend of flavor for an easy dinner!
Lemon Parmesan Chicken with Asparagus & Mashed Potatoes
Nothing says comfort like a plate full of buttery mashed potatoes! We've really brought things up a notch by topping these potatoes (and chicken) with a creamy sauce that is balanced by adding tangy-sweet sun-dried tomatoes and a touch of acidity from fresh squeezed lemon. This comfort food is elevated with fresh, crisp asparagus and kale.
Carne Asada Bowl with Chimichurri & Grilled Zucchini
Mmmmmm... Chimichurri! This classic South American herby and zesty sauce is served over Asado (grilled meat) to bring a contrasting element to the smoky charred meat. This vivacious, versatile sauce is easy to make, and once you master it, we promise it will become your go-to condiment. Try it drizzled over roasted root vegetables, as a marinade for pork chops or smeared on the bread of a cheesy panini.
