Deconstructed Chicken Parmesan Kebabs

These little cuties are probably one of the most popular dishes I make that have both kids and parents fighting for the final skewer. These baked morsels of plump and crispy chicken, rich roasted tomato slices, and ooey-gooey cheese are baked, not fried, and satisfy that craving for heavy chicken parmesan, but in a way lighter form, and are perfect for entertaining or feeding little fingers.

Spiced Vindaloo Kafta Kebabs with Potato, and Onions

These Vindaloo inspired Indian kafta or meatballs are packed full of flavor from fragrant Vindaloo curry spices, fresh lemon juice, and ginger. These might be one of the most surprisingly delicious and popular dishes I’ve made in the last year. Make them with beef for a richer ball or opt for turkey meat to make it a lighter, more lean dish. Even those skeptical family members who swear they don’t like curry will be heading for seconds and thirds.

Raw Cashew and Spinach Pesto Meatballs Made Gluten Free

These baked turkey meatballs are one of my sneakiest and most delicious ways to get tons of healthy greens and lots of raw protein into the belly of any picky eater. Using gluten free rolled oats and cheesy pesto, these balls don’t need eggs or any additional ingredients to make them perfectly plump. Make ahead, store in the fridge for weeknight meal prep or freeze some for last minute dinners in the future.

Almond, Herb, and Spinach Pesto Turkey Balls in a Warm Farro Bowl

Pesto comes in many variations. Our almond, herb, and spinach version has a nice basic Italian flavor that is oh-so-versatile. Here, we flavor the meatballs and then make a sauce for a brightly flavored, nutty grain bowl. We also love to add Greek yogurt to the pesto and put it on salads.

These balls are baked ahead of time or right before serving allowing for even further ease in the kitchen while you get the rest of the hot farro bowl together.

Korean Beef Bulgogi & Kimchi-Veggie Noodle Bowls

Beef Bulgogi is super popular. Why? ‘Cause it is bomb. Every Korean family, chef, or bulgogi-connoisseur has their own twist: adding fruits, citrus, and spices to the marinade or toppings and accoutrements. Our version takes a traditional approach with the addition of fresh orange juice for tang and to mellow out some of the spice from the Gochujang (fermented chile paste).

We also love to serve it in a bowl along side rice, grains, or noodles, for a one dish show stopper. Pair our Bulgogi with two other Korean inspired Fete-a-Tete side dishes, our Kimchi-Veggie Noodle Stir Fry and Ginger Chile Brocolli Rabe and Red Pepper Sauté. Served together in a bowl, the complex spices, flavors, and combinations of Korea have us Seou’led on our new 2017 food destination of choice.

Glazed carrots are a dish that Katie’s grandmother used to serve with Sunday dinners. We wanted to bring back grandma’s dish, but with more sophisticated flavors, like Indian spices, the sweetness of agave, and a crunch of walnut. Glaze on!
