Food Holidays: June
We have an eclectic mix of food holidays this month celebrating everything from the rich, yolky goodness of eggs, to our love of deep-fried everything, particularly the french fry’s tasty rival: the onion ring. In this blog we’ve included three wonderful reasons to indulge in June, along with Chef’d recipes to help take the planning off your plate!
Known as one of the most nutritious foods on the planet, eggs are extremely high in protein, vitamins, and healthy fats. We love that you can enjoy eggs in a number of cooking styles from scrambled, to over easy, hardboiled, and poached. However, we must admit that one of our favorite things to do with this tasty protein is let that yolky goodness run all over our food, making meals rich and flavorful. Try our Spicy Korean Pork Farro Bowl that is topped with a perfect sunny side up egg! Run your fork through the yolk, break up the whites, and mix the bowl together as the flavors combine.
We are always supporters of taking our meals outside and enjoying the great outdoors. With International Picnic Day on the 18th and Father’s Day on the 19th, what better way to celebrate dad than with a surprise family picnic complete with transportable Chef’d meals? For a light and refreshing starter, we recommend our Kale, Quinoa and Dried Cherry Salad that is easy to make and even easier to take on the go. Be sure to make your salad ahead of time and pack the proper serving utensils to enjoy outside. To complete your picnic platter, try bringing a main course that is easy, family-friendly, and mess-free! The Allrecipes One Pan Orecchiette Pasta is the perfect picnic dish that is both fast and delectable! This pasta combines onions, Italian turkey sausage, Parmesan cheese, and arugula to create an amazing flavor profile that can’t be beat.
Fried to golden perfection, we’re so glad that onion rings have a day dedicated to all of their wonder and deliciousness. To honor this day, we’re indulging in one of our favorite recipes by Chef’d partner Chris Santos. The Ancho Caramel Glazed Pork Tenderloin is a great recipe for those that are a bit more advanced in the kitchen, and can make for a wonderful challenge for the novice chef. This meal features a “Dirty Steak” topped with a straight caramel sauce that’s paired with BBQ black beans and fried onion strings. Give it and try and let us know what you think!
