A Different Approach

Dickson's Diary

A lot of caterers are looking towards a new way of operating with takeaway and delivery options becoming a big part of their offering. As a result, it is difficult to stand out from the crowd. 

In uncertain times, plant-based dishes provide an inclusive, sustainable menu option while reducing cost per serving. To offer something a little bit different on your menu, bring together core plant-based products with global-inspired BBQ flavours – perfect for summer.

To create this Korean BBQ Cauliflower with Fried Rice dish create a marinade using Country Range Soy Sauce, Country Range Pure Clear Honey, peanut butter, Sesame Oil, garlic and White Wine Vinegar. Brush the mix onto a char grilled cauliflower steak or bite sized cauliflower florets and grill further until tender and charred. Serve with egg fried rice, which you can make using Country Range Easy Cook Basmati Rice, Country Range Free Range Eggs, Country Range Soy Sauce, onion, garlic and veggies of your choice. This could easily be served as an on-the-go rice box with a twist, as a lunch offering or as an alternative to the traditional Chinese takeaway on an evening delivery menu.

Another dish that is great for health-conscious diners that want a tasty treat is King Prawn Satay using the sweet and succulent Country Range King Prawns.

Mix peanut butter, lime juice and zest, Country Range Coconut Milk, Country Range Soy Sauce, Country Range Pure Clear Honey and curry powder to create a marinade for the prawns. Marinate your prawns in the mixture, making sure you leave half as your dipping sauce to serve. Brush the prawns with oil and place in a pre-heated oven at 260°C for 2 minutes, then turn and cook for another 3 minutes. Serve with the dipping sauce on the side as an al-fresco starter if your business layout allows.

The Country Range King Prawns are raw, peeled, deveined and sustainably sourced. They are farmed in warm tropical waters and IQF guaranteeing the freshest and finest quality.

Keep safe, keep sane – keep cooking.
