Entrées

Hoisin-glazed pork tenderloin
Inspired by Chinese char siu pork, this weeknight recipe uses an easy cooking method that yields a tasty sauce with a subtle sweetness. Plain pork on request.
2 Portions = .75 lb | 4 Portions = 1½ lbs | 6 Portions = 2¼ lbs | 8 Portions = 3 lbs

and/or

Seared sesame-lime chicken breasts
A zippy ginger-lime marinade adds flavor and moisture to these seared organic chicken breasts. Plain breasts on request.
2 Portions = 2 chicken breasts | 4 Portions = 4 chicken breasts | 6 Portions = 6 chicken breasts | 8 Portions = 8 chicken breasts

and/or

Salt and pepper shrimp
This healthy riff on salt and pepper shrimp skips the deep-frying but still offers the traditional recipe's spicy, toasted-garlic flavor. Plain shrimp on request. Please eat within the first few days of delivery for optimal freshness.
2 Portions = ½ lb shrimp | 4 Portions = 1 lb shrimp | 6 Portions = 1½ lbs shrimp | 8 Portions = 2 lbs shrimp

and/or

Sticky and spicy baked cauliflower
No need to deal with a pot of hot oil to get crispy battered cauliflower; these oven-baked florets come out crackly and rich before getting bathed in a sticky-sweet gochujang glaze.
2 portions = 2 servings | 4 portions = 4 servings | 6 portions = 6 servings | 8 portions = 8 servings

Sides

Sheet-pan crisp tofu and sweet potatoes w/toasted cashews & tamari-honey dressing
A tamari-honey dressing spiked with rice wine vinegar acts as a marinade for the tofu and sauce for the finished roasted sweet potatoes. Quick-pickled scallions make for a bright and spicy garnish. Select ingredients omitted on request. Soy-free available.
6 cup Pyrex
Brown rice veggie bowls w/ snow peas, shaved carrots, & sliced radish
Full of crisp, tender veggies for the new year, these brown rice bowls make the perfect base for everything on the menu. Select ingredients omitted on request. Cauliflower rice sub available.
4 cup Pyrex
Roasted broccoli w/ toasted garlic, orange & sesame
Oranges signify happiness and abundance in the Chinese New Year tradition and do wonders to perk up a plate of broccoli along with toasted garlic and sesame seeds. Select ingredients omitted on request.
3 cup Pyrex
Crunchy greens w/carrot-ginger dressing & fresh mint
This recipe draws inspiration from the sunny-orange flavor of green salads with carrot-ginger dressing at Japanese-American restaurants. The pulpy, aromatic dressing may be the star, but a salad is only as good as its lettuce which is why we use Gotham Greens.
7 cup Pyrex
Restorative ginger and turmeric rice noodle soup w/ Swiss chard
During the winter months, this bowl of noodle soup is like a hug. In Chinese medicine, ginger is a yang food thought to aid digestion and restore balance. It's bolstered by turmeric, which offers deep, earthy flavors and anti-inflammatory prowess.
Minimum order = 1 pint | Standard order = 1 quart | Standard Plus = 1½ quarts | Four or More = 2 quarts

Notes: This food is carefully cooked and packaged in a facility that uses nuts, wheat, and soy. * Pyrex can be put in a pre-heated oven up to 400 degrees. Do not put under the broiler. Place on soft hot pads or silicone once you remove it from the oven. Never put Pyrex on a hot burner. It will explode. Plastic lids cannot go in the oven. * Pyrex is also freezer safe but make sure to unthaw and bring the dish to room temp before popping it in the oven. Extreme temperature changes can cause it to crack. * Salad dressings that have congealed in the refrigerator can be nuked for 5-10 seconds to liquefy.* Most dishes are better if you cover them with saran wrap before microwaving. It prevents them from drying out. * Salad dressings, and most soups, benefit from a good stir or shake before serving. * Eat seafood within the first few days of delivery for optimum freshness * You can freeze wide-mouth Ball jars as long as there is 1″ of headspace at the top of the jar. Unthaw gradually in the refrigerator. * Please wash your empty dishes before loading them into the cooler. Stack rectangular dishes together and round dishes together when possible. Put lids ON dishes to prevent chipping. Place defrosted ice packs on the bottom .* Thank you! jennifer@littlepinkkitchen.com 303-725-3836.
