    Make a flavorful gourmet meal for dinner tonight that’s sure to become a family favorite. Again, this is one is for lacto-ovo vegetarians who enjoy dairy. This meal can easily be made with or without meat. Spinach, an abundance of cheese, and a delicious tomato sauce will have you begging for more.

    For a variation, add Provident Pantry Freeze Dried Sausage Crumbles to the mix.

    Zucchini Corn Fritters

  • Spring has been a little hit and miss so far this year. Whether or not it’s Spring outside in your neck of the woods, you can enjoy a little Spring flavor. Just whip up this delicious Pasta Primavera made from 100% food storage ingredients.

    Food Storage Pasta Primavera

    *all ingredients measured dry

     

    Directions:

    Whisk one tablespoon broth and two tablespoons soup base into one cup hot water. Set aside.

    Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add one cup water, the carrot dices, onion flakes, and minced garlic. Simmer, adding more water as needed, until the carrots are almost tender. Reduce heat to medium. Add clarified butter, and sautee the veggies until the carrots are fully tender. Set aside.

    Meanwhile, start some water in a medium pot to boil for the pasta. Measure out all of the veggies you’ll add to your pasta (add the ones we’ve suggested, or come up with your own combo!) and set them aside in a single large bowl.

    Once the pasta water is boiling, add the pasta. While the pasta cooks, completely cover the veggies with warm water and let them rehydrate for 5-8 minutes (that’s about how long it will take the pasta to cook). Once the pasta is al dente, drain and set aside.

    Also drain the veggies, and sautee them with clarified butter until they are hot and some have browned. Put the veggies back in the large bowl, and add the carrot mixture and pasta to the bowl.

    Add 1/3 cup flour, 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, and 2 T clarified butter to the skillet to make a thick roux (we used whole wheat flour, but just use what you have on hand). Add the chicken broth mixture to the roux until it's the consistency you would like for your sauce.

    Add the sauce to the bowl of pasta and veggies. Mix well to coat everything. Enjoy!

  • For those of you who couldn’t make it to our stores last Saturday, we cooked up another round of delicious food in the Sport Solar Oven. It was a beautiful day at all four store locations. The skies were clear and the average temperature was around 57 degrees. It was a perfect day for solar oven cookin'! 

    The Orem store cooked an amazing chicken pot pie using a mixture of fresh and freeze-dried vegetables topped with a homemade biscuit crust. They also baked a giant cookie for dessert. (A giant cookie, people! Can life as a prepper get any better?) The food was delicious! Cook Time: 2 hours

    The South Jordan store cooked diced chicken with cream of chicken soup and veggies. They also baked rolls seasoned with cheese and butter. As you can imagine, customers loved the samples. Cook Time: roughly 3-4 hours

    The Murray store cooked diced chicken with a mix of veggies. They baked fluffy rolls, perfect for dipping in their entree. Delish! Cook Time: 4 hours

    The Bountiful store cooked a BBQ chicken that was as tender as can be. They also cooked a delicious wild rice (with carrots) on the side. Can you say AMAZING? Cook Time: 4-5 hours

    Here is what a customer said after seeing the demo in South Jordan: 

    “I would not mind eating solar oven baked food on a regular basis, let alone during an emergency.” – Roy

    We will be testing out recipes in our solar ovens every Saturday this month. Contact our Emergency Essential stores for more information. To read about how the Sport Solar Oven works, click here.

    ... I especially like to add it to casseroles and hot dishes. Adding this cheese blend to a plain white sauce recipe makes a great sauce for anything: vegetables, baked potatoes, etc...
