I can use one or two peppers in a week, but 6, that’s a little more tricky. When BB gives me an abundance of bell peppers, stuffed peppers are really the only option. So it was, slated for tonight’s dinner on the ol’ meal plan. We had already had several tomato-based dinners this week (chili–which we ate twice, spaghetti squash spaghetti, and pizza), so I thought I’d give my husband’s heartburn a break and make stuffed peppers flavored with soy sauce, brown sugar, and ginger instead of tomato paste, borrowing flavors from my favorite halloween meal, dinner in a pumpkin. It was actually pretty tasty and healthy too! Continue reading “Asian Inspired Stuffed Peppers–In the crockpot”
The Asian pack has always been one of my favorites! I love to make up large batches of egg rolls and wontons ( some fried and some raw to use for wonton soup) and stock my freezer. Who doesn’t love a wok full of colorful stir fry? Continue reading “Summer Asian Slaw”
One of my favorite add-ons is the Asian Pack! It always gives me the excuse to make up a big batch of stir fry. Today I wanted to do something different. Why not egg rolls! Simple enough, as all I needed were the wrappers. These egg rolls receive their heat from the dried Chiles de árbol in the pack. The coconut kiss, is a result of the rolls being fried in Bountiful Baskets scented organic Coconut Oil. Trust me, my house smelled amazing all day!

When I go to an Asian restaurant, I love to try the wonton soup! Different regions of Asia make wonton soup their specialty by adding spices or meats from their areas. Some wontons are filled with shrimp, pork, beef, or vegetables. Wontons are similar to small dumplings filled with delicious bites of flavor. I like to use ground pork and lots of spices to make wonton soup. I hope you will enjoy this soup recipe! Continue reading “Wonton Soup”
Anyone who has received butter lettuce in their Bountiful Basket knows that it can be a little unsettling to put something that claims to be “alive” and comes with a dirty root ball into your refrigerator. We also know that it’s delicious. Both times I’ve gotten it, I knew I could’ve probably just made a salad, but the perfectly cupped-shaped leaves made my mind automatically think lettuce wraps. Continue reading “Chicken Lettuce Wraps”
Pizza and a movie…seems so simple right? Where do I start? My refrigerator of course! I have Gala and Granny Smith apples from the last couple lunch box packs, lots of cheese (I think we could open a cheese shop), and a nub of fresh ginger from my last juice pack… Oh, I have a recipe for apple rhubarb chutney and I have rhubarb in the freezer (Spring rhubarb add-on). Sounds like the beginnings of a Fall inspired Pizza, and when I think of Fall I think of my childhood, which was spent in Europe (Father was in the Army). We spent many weekends touring around Europe in our old VW bus, seeing castles, farms, and beautiful English estates; this movie is my Fall “go to”!
