One-Pan Roasted

Feta & Tomato
Pasta

One-Pan Roasted Feta & Tomato Pasta

With our Marinated Feta in Oil, you can roast a delicious pasta sauce in one
dish! Our hot take on the viral feta tomato hack of
a few months ago:

  • Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F). Place 4 cups (1 L) whole cherry or grape
    tomatoes (or tomato chunks) into a large baking dish. Toss with a drizzle of
    olive oil, 2 finely sliced garlic cloves and 1 tsp (5 mL) granulated sugar.
  • Grab 200g of your favourite Feta and place onto tomatoes. Bake for 35 to 40 min.
  • Meanwhile, cook about 2 cups (500 mL) dried pasta. After roasting, lightly
    crush the tomatoes and cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste, plus a
    little extra sugar or liquid honey, if you prefer. Toss with torn fresh
    basil and drained hot pasta. Enjoy!

Chilled or Frozen

Roasted Peppers

Chilled or Frozen Roasted Peppers

Store roasted sweet peppers in the fridge or freezer to sweeten up fave recipes!

  • Cut off longer stems, then place peppers on foil-lined baking sheet under
    broiler, turning to char all over. Transfer to heatproof bowl, cover and let
    cool.
  • Remove stems, seeds, ribs and skins. Place peppers in jar and cover with
    olive or vegetable oil. Store in fridge for up to 1 week.
  • These are great in salads, sandwiches or omelettes. Or press peppers flat in
    freezer bags to freeze for up to 1 month. Soft after thawing, they’re handy
    for mixing into pastas, sauces and soups.

Salty-sweet

Quick Cucumber
Pickle

Salty-sweet Quick Cucumber Pickle

Ready to munch on in as little as 30 min., these tangy-sweet “fresh pickles” are
a quick and easy savoury summer snack or burger topper.

  • In a saucepan, mix together 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) water, 1/2 cup (125 mL)
    granulated sugar, 1/4 cup (60 mL) white vinegar and 2 tbsp (30 mL) kosher
    salt.
  • Simmer just until the sugar and salt are dissolved. While the mixture is
    hot, add a cucumber sliced into rounds.
  • Cover and steep for 30 min. to 1 hr. Discard the brine. Chill before
    eating, if desired.

Freezer-Ready

Basil

Freezer-Ready Basil

Save this versatile herb to kick up your Mediterranean-inspired cooking!

  • Discarding stems, add basil leaves to a food processor; pulse to coarsely
    chop (don’t add any oil yet).
  • Scrape into a freezer bag. Add a drizzle of olive or vegetable oil, turning
    to coat.
  • Press flat before freezing. Break off pieces as you need to flavour your
    cooking.
  • If you have only a handful of fresh basil to store, coarsely chop by hand
    and follow the same steps. Keeps well for 2 months.

Pan-Roasted

Rosemary Salt

Pan-Roasted Rosemary Salt

Turn your fresh rosemary into a year-round stash.

  • Spread sprigs onto baking sheets and air-dry 2 days or until completely
    brittle. Store in jars.
  • Fresh rosemary also makes a delicious “finishing salt” – perfect for
    sprinkling on grilled meats and veg! Using mortar and pestle, lightly pound
    4 tsp (20 mL) finely chopped rosemary and 1 tbsp (15 mL) kosher salt until
    fragrant. Mix in pinch of sugar.
  • In small dry frying pan over low heat, stir just until rosemary darkens and
    crisps. Immediately transfer to small dish.

Multi-Purpose

Mint Pesto

Multi-Purpose Mint Pesto

Mint pesto is a bright boost for grilled veggies, potatoes, avocado toast, noodle
salads and, of course, lamb.

  • Spread sprigs onto baking sheets and air-dry 2 days or until completely
    brittle. Store in jars.
  • You’ll need 4 cups (1 L) mint and 1 cup (250 mL) parsley leaves, loosely
    packed. Add half of herbs to food processor and set aside. Put the rest in a
    colander; pour in a kettle of just-boiled water, then rinse under cold
    running water; squeeze out excess water.
  • Add blanched herbs to food processor; add 1/3 cup (75 mL) walnut pieces,
    zest of 1 lemon and 1 chopped garlic clove, if you like.
  • Pulse until coarse paste; transfer to bowl. Stir in 1/3 cup (75 mL) olive
    oil, 2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice, 1 tbsp (15mL) grated Parmesan cheese and
    salt and pepper to taste. Makes 3/4 cup (175 mL).
  • Place in freezer bag and press flat and freeze for up to 1 month.
