Tofu - Seared in olive oil and seasoned with sea salt our tofu takes on the flavors that surround it. An excellent source of amino acids, iron, calcium and other micro-nutrients, tofu is a versatile ingredient with many health benefits. It is made in much the same way that traditional dairy cheese is made except, rather than starting with milk as in the case of cheese, tofu starts with soybeans. Not only a great source of protein tofu contains all eight essential amino acids and is an excellent source of iron and calcium and the minerals manganese, selenium and phosphorous. In addition, tofu is a good source of magnesium, copper, zinc and vitamin B1 and it’s thought to provide the same protection against cancer and heart disease as soya beans.

Artichoke-Lemon Sauce – A healthy zesty artichoke-lemon butter sauce. Artichokes are a superfood in every sense of the word. The phytonutrients in artichokes provide potent antioxidant benefits and a 2006 study conducted by the US Department of Agriculture and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that artichokes provide greater antioxidant benefits per serving than many other foods traditionally considered to be antioxidant-rich such as dark chocolate, blueberries and red wine. They also lower cholesterol, improve liver function and prevent cancer and protect against free radicals.

Roasted Garlic Marble Potatoes – A simple all-natural complement to any dish, simply potatoes, olive oil and garlic. Potatoes contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity. Among these important health-promoting compounds are carotenoids, flavonoids, and caffeic acid, as well as unique tuber storage proteins, such as patatin, which exhibit activity against free radicals. Unfortunately, often the oils used to cook the potatoes have negative health consequences, which is why we only use olive oil. The main type of fat found in olive oil is monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs). MUFAs are considered a healthy dietary fat. MUFAs may help lower your risk of heart disease by improving related risk factors. For instance, MUFAs have been found to lower total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels. Also, some research shows that MUFAs may benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, which can be helpful if you have or are at risk of type 2 diabetes.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts – Oven roasted in olive oil, seasoned with sea salt and preserved with lemon. Simple, delicious and all natural. Brussels sprouts offer cancer prevention glucosinolates: glucoraphanin, glucobrassicin, sinigrin and gluconasturtiian. Brussels sprouts offer these cancer-preventive components in a unique combination.

Stove Top: (Preferred Method) Bring a pot of water to a boil. Immerse the tofu pouch into gently boiling water for about 11 minutes. Add the side dish pouches and boil for an additional 2 minutes. Finally, add the sauce pouch and cook all components for an additional 2 minutes. 

Microwave: Pierce a small hole in each pouch for venting. Place the tofu pouch on a microwave safe dish and heat on high for 1 minute, add side dish and sauce pouches and heat on high for an additional 1.5 minutes.

In the event your meal is not fully reheated after removal from the pouches, you may continue reheating in a microwave on a microwave safe dish until done - which should be no more than another minute or two. An internal temperature of 158° F must be reached. Appliances vary, adjust accordingly.

Please note: For items without sauces or gravy, cut a hole in corner of pouch and drain excess liquid before plating.
