Nothing is better than a one-dish meal. Even better is a sheet pan meal and you can use tin foil to minimize clean up! Winning! This meal comes together super fast and easy. Well worth the cooking time wait!

Butternut Noodles

Standard

Naturally sweet butternut goes perfectly with sweet caramelized onions. This super simple side dish would pair well with any protein, even for breakfast with a fried egg. We flavored this dish using J. Olive Co. Tuscan Herb Olive Oil and J. Olive Co. Gravenstein Apple Balsamic, garlic and feta to give a savory but hint of sweet taste. The onions do take some time to cook but this is well worth the wait!

Tuscan Herb Butternut Noodles

Fresh

  • 1 pack of frozen Green Giant Spiralized butternut squash
  • 2 yellow onions, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • fat free feta cheese
  • fresh basil

Black Mission Fig + Wild Mushroom & Sage

Standard

Savory and rich and great for grilling! For this month’s pairing, Black Mission fig Balsamic and Wild Mushroom & Sage Olive oil, I went with marinades and barbecue sauce! I absolutely love roasted or grilled mushrooms. Marinate veggies in this pairing for an easy side dish to any meal. First up, I did a twist on Mushroom “Steak and Eggs,” and second I made a barbecue sauce for CK Turkey Sausage Meatball Kabobs!

Coconut + Lemon

Standard

The J. Olive Co. Coconut White Balsamic and Lemon Olive Oil combination is so light a fresh! Just in time for spring and summer weather!! This combo goes perfect with fresh fruits and seafood. Check out our delicious Green Smoothie Bowl, which combines all the CK Habits in one treat! Next up is the Watermelon Mocktail—which you could totally turn into a Summertime Cocktail! We also used this recipe to create a watermelon smoothie. Last up in a Coconut Crusted Fish and Mustard Sauce. We love cooking with fish because it is such a fast meal! This one was a quick cook but packs some major flavor!

Apricot + Toasted Sesame

Standard

The J. Olive Co. Blenheim Apricot White Balsamic might just be my new favorite over the Cranberry Pear! I am obsessed with it and currently on bottle #2 for the month. This pairing of course screams Asian food, like in our “Fried Rice” Turkey Bowl. But do not let this combo scare you from trying it in other recipes. The Orange Glaze Fish has just a hint of the Toasted Sesame, but doesn’t scream “Asian” flavor. I’ve used the apricot balsamic drizzled on cantaloup for a sweet bite like dessert and used the dressing from the Sweet and Sour Broccoli Salad on a Turkey Burger Bowl with grapes, feta, walnuts, and spinach. Try this combo with any veggie you would like to stir fry like we did the Garlic & Apricot Balsamic Broccolini. You could also substitute the Apricot Balsamic for Cranberry Pear Balsamic.
