Mix & Match Suggestions

Chinese five-spice steak w/charred oranges & sesame
2 portions = 1lb | 4 portions = 2lbs | 6 portions = 3 lbs | 8 portions = 4 lbs
Best warm. Cover Pyrex w/ foil, preheat oven to 375 degrees, cook steak for 10 minutes or until heated to your liking, and then slice thinly against the grain. You can also slice the steak against the grain and sear it in a hot skillet with a splash of olive oil. Drizzle w/ juice from charred oranges and top with scallions and sesame seeds if desired.
Seared oranges add flavor to this tasty weeknight steak. Try it for dinner with a side of roasted sweet potatoes and asparagus for dinner. Bring leftovers for lunch with the salad or noodle bowl.
Grilled ginger-lime organic chicken breasts
2 portions = 2 breasts | 4 portions = 4 breasts | 6 portions = 6 breasts | 8 portions = 8 breasts
Hot, cold, or room temperature. Slice or dice the chicken and give it a quick stir-fry in a hot skillet with a splash of olive oil. Add a flick of water and cover to steam for 30-60 minutes. You can also nuke it in the microwave for 30-60 seconds or cover the Pyrex with foil and heat it in a preheated 350-degree oven for 5-10 minutes.
Though this may look like regular old chicken, don’t be fooled: It’s buzzing with the bright flavors of ginger and lime. Mayonnaise is the secret ingredient in this recipe. When slathered on boneless chicken and cooked, the beloved condiment carries flavor, sticks to the meat well, encourages browning, and prevents the pieces of lime zest and ginger from burning. Try the chicken for dinner with the noodle bowl and asparagus. Take it for lunch with sweet potatoes and salad.
Baked cod w/crunchy miso butter bread crumbs
3 cup Pyrex
Best warm. Reheat in the microwave or give the asparagus a quick pan fry on the stovetop. Mound on a serving platter and drizzle with sesame oil. Sprinkle cilantro, green onion, and sesame seeds over the top.
Shiro miso, also known as white miso, is a fermented mash of soybeans and rice with an incredibly rich, sweet flavor that packs a punch. As it bakes, the crisp miso crust caramelizes and forms an addictive flavor that elevates the mild cod. Try it for dinner with the sweet potato and asparagus. Take it for lunch with the noodle bowl or salad.
Tofu & blistered green beans w/chili-crisp
2 portions = 2 servings | 4 portions = 4 servings | 6 portions = 6 servings | 8 portions = 8 servings
Best warm. Nuke in the microwave to reheat.
Chile crisp, a fiery hot-pepper condiment born in the Sichuan Province of China, relies on fried shallots and garlic for texture and any number of umami-rich special ingredients for distinction and oomph. It’s magical! Here, it serves as the base of a marinade and topping for baked tofu and green beans. Serve the tofu with sweet potatoes and asparagus for dinner. Take leftovers with salad or noodles for lunch.

Mix & Match Suggestions

Sesame-orange rice noodle bowls w/ snap peas, red cabbage, shiitake mushrooms, scallions, & rice vinegar dressing
6 cup Pyrex
Serve at room temperature, warm or cold. You can use a huge bowl and toss everything together or plate individual bowls. To go that route: divide the red cabbage among bowls, drizzle with some of the dressing and toss gently to coat; add the snap peas and mushrooms, top w/ orange segments, and toasted sesame seeds if using. Drizzle with the remaining dressing and serve the rest on the side.
This delicious mix of veggies offers a variety of textures and tastes so that you will get something crunchy, soft, sweet, and salty in every bite. Try it with the main entrée and a side of asparagus for dinner. Take leftovers for lunch with sweet potatoes or salad.
Sweet potatoes w/sesame-citrus butter
4 cup Pyrex
Best warm. Nuke the potatoes to reheat, or cover Pyrex in foil and cook in a 375-degree oven for 10 minutes. Spread tahini butter over the hot potatoes. Season with sea salt; top liberally with sesame seeds & a squeeze of lime.

3 cup Pyrex
Best warm. Reheat in the microwave or give the asparagus a quick pan fry on the stovetop. Mound on a serving platter and drizzle with sesame oil. Sprinkle cilantro, green onion, and sesame seeds over the top.
Asparagus stands up quite well to aggressive flavors. A quick toss in a hot wok with garlic, ginger, and chiles doesn’t overwhelm it at all; instead, the vegetable’s sweetness becomes accentuated by contrast. Try it for dinner with the main entrée and the noodle bowl. Take leftovers for lunch with salad and sweet potatoes.
Snow pea, cabbage, carrot, and arugula salad w/ smoked almonds & sesame-tahini dressing.
7 cup Pyrex
Best cold. In a large bowl, toss the snow peas, cabbage, greens, carrots, green onions, and cilantro to combine. Drizzle with a splash of dressing and toss until all of the ingredients are evenly coated. Add more dressing to taste if desired. Serve topped with smoked almonds.
This dish is all about contrast. Subtly spicy greens meet sweet, crispy snow peas, with salty smoked almonds and smooth tahini dressing drizzled on top. Try the salad with a cup of soup for dinner, or take it as a grab-and-go lunch.

Built on a monster broth of white pepper, ginger, and garlic. This invigorating soup will give you a boost and clear your sinuses. The soup is light and soothing on a winter's day but you can add rice or noodles if you want to make it more substantial. Serve it with the salad for lunch or dinner or enjoy it as an afternoon snack.

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.
