Preparation Instructions & Ingredient Information

LEMONGRASS & TOMATO STEW with pork sausage, broken vermicelli and fermented pepper paste

  • First, take everything out of the fridge! You want all the elements of this dinner at room temperature or slightly warmed. 
  • Warm the tomato and pepper mixture either in the microwave (for 30 seconds to 1 minute), or in a small frying pan. You just want to take the chill off this/slightly warm it so that when you add it to the stew it’s not like dumping an ice cube in!
  • Warm the pork sausage either in the microwave, or in a frying pan over medium heat. 
  • Warm the tomato broth in a saucepan over medium high heat. Bring the broth to a simmer and then add the vermicelli noodles in. Continue to simmer for about 2-4 minutes or until the vermicelli has softened.
  • To serve, divide the tomato broth and vermicelli evenly among two bowls. Top with pork sausage and a dollop of the fermented pepper paste. Spoon tomatoes and jimmy nardello peppers into the stew. Top with picked herbs and squeeze a lime over everything. Serve!

CORNMEAL & ZUCCHINI FRITTERS with crispy chickpeas, tahini, & feta

  • First, take everything out of the fridge! You want all the elements of this dinner at room temperature or slightly warmed. 
  • Cornmeal and zucchini fritters are fully cooked. To warm, bake uncovered at 375 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
  • To serve, first spread the grilled squash and tahini puree on a plate. Fan your spoon out to create pleasant waves that will serve as a bed for the fritters. Place fritters on top of puree. Spoon chickpea mix over fritters, crumble feta over everything, and scatter mixed herbs over the plate. Squeeze a lemon wedge over everything and serve.

 

REDSTART LASAGNA

  • We went ahead and pre-baked this for you so you can get dinner on the table in a reasonable amount of time.
  • You can either bake the whole tray (at 350 on a sheet pan to catch or drips) for about 30 minutes with the lid on. Remove lid and bump oven temperature up to 475. Continue cooking for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese on top is nice and crispy! Let rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.
  • Alternatively, you can slice the lasagna cold and take the slices out of the tray. Bake on a sheet pan or in a casserole dish (ideally with some parchment paper or foil under the lasagna to save you some clean up time) at 375 for about 15-20 minutes, or until the lasagna is nice and crispy on the top and fully warmed through!



HARISSA CHICKEN with green tomato & grapefruit

  • Assemble your dinner platter by first spreading the pureed green tomato salsa on the plate. Top with roasted chicken. Scatter the melon and green tomato salsa over the chicken and serve!

 

CURRIED MEATBALLS

 

  • Warm in a saucepan over medium low heat, or bake in a 350 degree oven (partial- ly covered) for about 15-20 minutes. These also do very well in the microwave!
