I have a new favorite topping. Two of them, actually.
#1- Goat cheese + fig preserves + dijon mustard. I’m telling you, that combination is HEAVEN on top of pork medallions.
Just mix a half an ounce of dijon mustard, with 1 tablespoon of fig preserves, 1 teaspoon of water, and a pinch of salt and be prepared to lick your plate.
#2: Honey on brussels sprouts.
IN. CREDIBLE!!! They’ve always been my favorite veggie but I honestly feel like I haven’t even been eating them right until now!!! And don’t even get me started on the fact that I *JUST TODAY* learned that they’re not even called brussel sprouts. They’re BRUSSELS sprouts. Like, even if you’re talking about one sprout you say it that way. Brussels sprout. Isn’t that crazy? BRUSSELS. They’re literally named after the city in Belgium.
Start by cutting them in quarters. Next, toss them in 2 tablespoons of oil and a little bit of salt and pepper. Then, roast them on a baking sheet covered in foil for 18 minutes. After that, pull them out and drizzle on that honey. Mmmmm. To die for finishing touch, I’m tellin’ ya.
Anywho, Home Chef has been teaching us how to make all kinds of amazing things lately, so I thought I’d share a little bit about what we’re learning here on the blog too.
And if you’re new to Home Chef (hi mom!) it’s a meal kit service that sends you easy-to-follow recipes and all the fresh ingredients you need to make the most amazing meals at home. Every single thing you need comes inside an insulated box and we’ve been ordering from them for more than a year now because their meals really are the best things we’ve ever eaten at home. Super high-quality cuts of meat and gorgeous veggies, and like I mentioned above, we learn yummy new flavor tips and techniques every time.
If you’re interested in giving their service a whirl, I highly recommend their oven ready and new slow cooker meals. Those are our absolute favorites. Oh, and don’t forget to use code LAYLA100 for $100 off. That’ll save you $25 off your first four boxes.
