From Farm To Table: Recipes That Bring Out The Best In Fresh Produce

Share :

Imagine a world where the food on your plate is as fresh as it gets. Wouldn’t it be great to make dishes that not only tantalises your taste buds but also contribute to supporting local farmers and sustainable farming practices? That’s all possible with the farm-to-table concept, which uses locally sourced, seasonal ingredients in your recipes. Let’s dive into this world of fresh produce and look at how Nutralite, a brand committed to tasty and healthier eating, can play an instrumental role in your farm-to-table journey. 

Did You Know?

  • Carrots were originally cultivated for their bright green, feathery leaves and not their roots. The orange roots we know today weren't developed until the 16th century.

 

Farm-to-table recipes are not just about cooking; they promote a lifestyle centered around conscious eating, sustainability, and support for local economies. But what makes farm-to-table stand out from other food movements? Why should you consider incorporating it into your culinary repertoire? Let’s break it down.

1. Local Sourcing

Farm-to-table recipes rely heavily on locally sourced ingredients. This not only ensures that you’re consuming the freshest produce, but it also supports local farmers and reduces the environmental impact of long-distance food transportation.

2. Seasonal Ingredients

The farm-to-table approach emphasises seasonal eating. This means you’re getting fruits and vegetables at their peak freshness, resulting in more nutritious and flavourful meals.

3. Sustainable Practices

Supporting this movement often goes hand in hand with encouraging sustainable farming practices such as regenerative agriculture. This holistic approach to farming promotes soil health, biodiversity, and responsible land management.

Now that we’ve unpacked the “why”, let’s move on to the “how” with some delicious, easy-to-make recipes that utilize the best of fresh, locally-sourced produce. 

Farm Fresh Recipes to Try at Home

1. Green Chili Braised Chicken

Ingredients:

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces; 2 tbsp Nutralite Butter Spread; 1 onion, diced; 3 cloves garlic, minced; 2-3 green chilies, finely chopped (adjust to desired spice level); 1 tsp ground cumin; 1 tsp ground coriander; 1 tsp garam masala; 1 tsp paprika; 1 tsp salt; 1 cup chicken broth; 1 cup diced tomatoes; 2 tbsp chopped cilantro for garnish.

Instructions:

In a large skillet or oven, melt the Nutralite DoodhShakti Butter Spread over medium heat. Then add the diced onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes until translucent. Add the minced garlic and chopped green chilies. Cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently, until fragrant. Add the chicken pieces and brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ground cumin, coriander, garam masala, paprika, and salt. Mix well to coat the chicken. Pour in the chicken broth and diced tomatoes. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20-25 minutes, until the chicken is very tender and the sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and garnish with chopped cilantro. Serve hot over steamed basmati rice or with naan bread. The Nutralite DoodhShakti Butter Spread adds a rich, creamy texture and immunity-boosting probiotics to this flavorful braised chicken dish.

2. Garlic Butter Steak Bites

Ingredients:

1 lb sirloin steak, cut into bite-sized pieces; 2 tbsp Nutralite Fat Spread; 4 cloves garlic, minced; 1 tsp paprika; 1 tsp salt; 1/2 tsp black pepper; Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish

Instructions:

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the Nutralite Fat Spread. Once the spread has melted, add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant. Add the steak pieces to the skillet in a single layer. Let them cook without stirring for 2-3 minutes to get a nice sear. Stir the steak and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes, or until the steak reaches your desired level of doneness. Sprinkle the paprika, salt, and black pepper over the steak bites. Stir to coat evenly. Remove the skillet from heat and let the steak rest for a few minutes. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving. Serve the Garlic Butter Steak Bites hot as an appetizer or main dish, paired with your favorite sides like roasted vegetables or a fresh salad. The addition of Nutralite Fat Spread adds a delicious, creamy richness to the garlic butter sauce, enhancing the overall flavor of the steak bites. Enjoy this quick and easy recipe for a satisfying meal!
