Easy, Healthy Holiday Recipes

Thomas J. Story

Cooking good food and sharing it with those we love is a stellar recipe for joy. Especially when we cut out the kitchen frenzy. In other words, don’t let the cooking harsh your mellow.

One key to keeping it calm is to include a few excellent prepared foods that don’t compromise on flavor or shortchange our health or values. We like to use organic, responsibly sourced ingredients that make us proud to put dinner on the table.

Here’s where Provisions come in handy. We’ve developed tasty, wholesome organic foods that get us to mealtime with our peace of mind intact. They’re especially useful for fixing healthy holiday appetizers, easy holiday side dishes and feeding houseguests between feasts. Here are some of our favorite holiday recipes.

Healthy Holiday Appetizers

Amy Kumler

Hungry guests walking in the door right now? Open a pack of our Chile Mango and shake it out next to a chunk of cheese and some Breadfruit Crackers (we have three flavors to choose from). If your people are especially ravenous, add a pack of smoked wild salmon—it’s good with the crackers too.

If you have a little time to cook, though, check out these healthy holiday recipe ideas.

Wild Salmon Spread

15 mins

8 servings

A Provisions staff and customer favorite, this easy spread was created by an Alaskan fisherman. Make it with either our wild sockeye or our wild pink salmon, both packed with omega-3s and high in vitamin D.

Saltines with White Anchovies

10 mins + 20 hours to bake

6 servings

First we bake Saltines in butter, then we top them with mild, fresh-tasting Spanish White Anchovies, totally unlike salty “pizza” anchovies. We bet you’ll open a second can.

Venison Links Cheese Board

20 mins

8 servings

A good cheese board packs in the salty, the sweet, the standbys and the surprises. This beauty does it all, with two foods your holiday party guests probably haven’t tasted: our Breadfruit Crackers and our brand-new Lightly Smoked Venison Links. Check out the stories behind both—they’re conversation starters for sure.

Easy Holiday Side Dishes

Thomas J. Story

Your family probably has its fixed holiday main course – the turkey, the prime rib or the brisket. But there’s wiggle room when it comes to the sides. Here are a few easy, crowdpleasing ways to liven up the table.

Mushroom Savory Grains with Thyme, Onions and Crispy Shrooms

15 mins

2 servings (easy to double or triple)

We stir our fluffy, flavorful Organic Mushroom Savory Grains into a sizzling panful of fresh mushrooms, thyme and onion. It’s hearty and energizing, like a fall hike in the woods.

Green Bean Casserole with Savory Seeds

30 mins + 15 mins to bake

A vegan take on the classic casserole that passes muster with meat eaters. The secrets? Rich cashew cream, plenty of fresh mushrooms and a crunchy topping of Classic Barbecue Savory Seeds.

Red Chile Roasted Potatoes

15 mins + 45 mins to roast

6 servings

We give up the mashed potatoes when the roasted ones are this good. Crisp and crackly-skinned, they’re seasoned with rosemary, whole heads of roasted garlic and our smoky, organic Aji Molido (ground red chile).

See the Recipe

Grains, Greens and Apple Salad

20 mins

8 servings

We use our organic Kale Savory Grains—a blend of nutty-tasting khorasan wheat, quinoa, kale and mushrooms—to add depth of flavor and substance to this bright fall salad. Add more grains to make it a vegan main course.

See the Recipe

Mussel Salad with Fennel, Chickpeas and Dill Vinaigrette

20 mins

6 servings

A showstopper side that combines crunchy fennel and radishes, creamy chickpeas and plump, meaty Provisions Smoked Mussels. A dill vinaigrette brings it all together.

What to Feed Holiday Houseguests

Thomas J. Story

Face it, the last thing you want to do after pulling together a holiday feast is…more cooking. We can help with easy-to-prepare breakfasts, lunches and dinners that won’t suck you back into the kitchen for hours. Or persuade a guest to cook by promising them some Provisions to take home. Worth a try!

Breakfast Grains Pancakes

30 mins

5 servings

Here’s a change from the usual white flour carbo bomb: Hearty pancakes made with organic whole grains. Our Breakfast Grains--a mix of buckwheat, barley and oats–gives these pancakes a toasty nuttiness that’s even better with a drizzle of real maple syrup or organic honey.

See the Recipe

Hearty Breakfast Grains Muffins

20 mins + 30 mins to bake

9 servings

Bake these delicious, nutritious muffins ahead (even freeze them) and heat them up when the houseguests materialize in the morning. Because they’re made with whole-grain Organic Breakfast Grains, they’ll deliver steady energy for whatever fun you’ve got planned.

Kimi Werner’s Wild Salmon Omelet

20 mins

4 servings

Good for breakfast, lunch or dinner, this deluxe omelet is jammed with seasonal vegetables and flakes of wild sockeye salmon, with melted cheese oozing out the sides. The recipe makes one giant omelet, so you can feed a few people at once. Get two pans going for a crowd.

Spicy Chili for a Crowd

15 mins

10 servings

Everybody loves chili, especially when they can customize their bowls. Start by simmering up our hearty, plant-based Organic Spicy Red Bean Chili, ready in 10 minutes. Then set out toppings and sides—and let your guests do the rest.

White Anchovy Linguine with Toasted Breadcrumbs

25 mins

6 servings

Our mild, delicate Spanish White Anchovies shine in this pasta, full of lemony, garlicky flavor and topped with toasted pine nuts, breadcrumbs and parsley. It’s simple to make but delivers big.
