Recipes that KEEP?
Recipes that KEEP?
I need some help, if anyone has suggestions. I make and deliver raw foods. I prefer to show people how, (teach a man to fish…), but some people just DON’T have the time. And I do. :) Lucky me. Anyone, my clients live kinda far, so I am looking for recipes that will last in the fridge for at least a few days. Not ideal, I know, but three-day-old raw is better than a burger, right? Anyway, what do YOU make that will last for a few days or more? Thanks…
Salsa & flax crackers.
Zucchini noodles with marinara or fettucini sauce in a seperate container to add right before eating.
Zoe’s “Cheese With Spring Onions”
Any kind of pie/cheesecake/ice cream that stays in the freezer
Salad dressings & marinades – if your clients can buy salad greens &/or chop veggies to marinate, then having the sauces & dressings could be a way for them to have fresh stuff on the days you’re not delivering food.
I’m still experimenting with cookbooks. Matt Amsden’s Cauliflower Couscous rocked (use less salt and add a bit of garlic). I made it on a Saturday afternoon and was still eating it on Tuesday. It needed a squeeze of fresh lemon to perk up the flavours, which had mellowed a bit, but the texture was still great. Matthew Kenney’s Chili was also amazing. To it, I added fresh cilantro and extra chiles (when serving). Two days after making it, it still tasted fresh. I think it would have held up another day or two, easily. All my cheezes and crackers have lasted several days or more. My zucchini hummus held up beautifully for 4-5 days. I used extra tahini, but no olive oil and it never separated at all. Tasted as good on day 5 as on day 1. I’ve also made dehydrated falafels that were great for days. The only thing with them was that they needed a couple of hours in the dehydrator before eating, or else they were a bit sticky and soggy. Anything with a little salt and lemon juice will last longer, in my opinion, because they act somewhat as preservatives.
Thanks for all your help! I’ll try those…
I agree with sweetpea about stuff with lemon jucie. I have had sunflower cheese that has lasted weeks. Andy my dressings (although not creamy) last over a week easily and usually have namu shoyu, olive oil and lemon juice in them. Sometimes one of the the is removed but will always have oil or lemon juice. I like combining tahini with the above mentioned.
I have also found the zucchini hummus will keep really well. My recent batch lasted about a week. I have also found marinara will last a long time.
Marinated mushrooms get better with time. I then serve them over a spinach salad. Hummus lasts a while. I have kept lasagne for 4 days and it was still great. I had to drain off the water after it sat the first night, but after that it is fine. Also, onion bread lasts forever!
hi shakes! buy the cafe gratitude cookbook. they have AMAZING mexican recipes that can keep, and be assembled right before eating.
