10 Minute Meals with Om Chef Prep kits Aug, 2011

Spelt Pilaf

Steamed Spelt*, dill, tarragon, parsley, lemon, walnut, and a splash of walnut oil

Spelt, use any whole grain or a mix of whole grains.  Herbs can be changed up as well, try basil in place of tarragon and dill, or mint with dill is a yummy flavor combo. Switch the walnuts for pumpkin seeds and use cilantro in place of the other herbs for a little Latin mix. Don't have walnut oil? No problem, use olive oil or skip the oil altogether.  No lemon, no worries, add a squeeze of orange, lime or grapefruit. Or skip the citrus juice and add a little pomegranate or cranberry juice........I could go on and on here, but I think you get the creative and have fun with it!!
Cider glazed red cabbage, purple onion and mustard seed..........heat a saute pan over medium heat, add mustard seeds and toast for 1 min, add a shredded raw cabbage and a tablespoon or three of apple cider vinegar, cook for two or three minutes

Lightly steamed carrots, fennel, fennel seed and orange glaze........heat a saute pan over medium heat, add a drizzle of olive oil and heat for one minute, add fennel seeds and toast them for one minute, add sliced, chopped or shredded carrot and fennel and cook for one, add juice of one orange and cook until carrots are just tender.
Steamed broccoli and quinoa with a splash of olive oil and squeeze of lemon

Steamed quinoa with wilted Dino kale and toasted hazelnut

Don't have kale in your kit this week? Use spinach or even a handful of your spring mix-yum!
Walnuts, almonds, pecans or pumpkin seeds work just as well as hazelnuts
