FRESH ON FRIDAY 16 FEBRUARY

We have really noticed its busy out there in Auckland – long traffic queues,  packed supermarkets & hardware stores, people rushing everywhere.  So we hope this week’s menu of all-in-one meals hit the spot.  (FYI - They are all served as single portions, as we do not currently have a large enough containers for a double portion).

And we have started our foray into pasta sauces, with this tried and true recipe from our café days – Creamy Spinach, Parmesan & Lemon Zest Sauce. See the menu below for details…   

Portuguese Seafood Stew -  $16.80 (lg single) – dairy free/gluten free

This hearty seafood stew features chorizo, potato, prawns, mussels and calamari simmered with tomatoes, saffron and of course a little vino. Just reheat gently, accompany with warm Rachel Scott bread and devour!  This will be ready by 11.00am Friday.

Ovenbaked Greek Lamb Meatballs with Orzo and Feta - $14.80 (lg single)                   With delicious Greek flavours, these meatballs are baked in a tomato & oregano sauce, with added orzo pasta and sprinkled with feta.  This is a total meal, just heat eat and enjoy! (if you would like this dairy free, we can exclude the feta -.but please book before 12 lunchtime on Thursday)

Chicken, Gourmandine Potato & Bean Korma - $14.80 (lg single) - gluten free

A sophisticated yoghurt based north Indian curry (a mild to medium heat).  Made from scratch with freshly ground spices, ground almonds, creamy greek yoghurt,  gourmandine  potatoes and fresh beans, this is another perfect meal in one. 

Mexican Vegetable, Baby Spinach & Chipotle Brown Rice Burritos - $8.80 ea – vegetarian

We are hoping to make these lunch (or small meal) size burritos a permanent item in our regular deli freezers as we know they will be popular.  Smaller in size to our other meal size burritos, but packed with loads of healthy ingredients and a little sour cream & cheese for extra deliciousness!  Just heat up in your sandwich press, or microwave until hot.

Creamy Spinach, Parmesan & Lemon Zest Sauce.  $12.80 - (400mls – serves 2 as a pasta sauce) – vegetarian/gluten free

An oldie but a goodie – this was a regular item as a pasta sauce back in our café days. It’s not only a pasta sauce – use it as a sauce for cooked chicken or fish, or for a vegetable or chicken bake. As a pasta sauce, its great topped with crispy bacon, grilled prawns or prosciutto, or add roasted pumpkin and/or left over broccoli or beans to change it up!  However, it sauce holds it own and is heavenly tossed in linquine, and topped with a little shaved parmesan. (As a rule, allow 100gms of dry pasta per person) - ready by 11 am Friday
