week 12 with Vidis Kochtüte

Rosemary chicken with rice and streamed carrots

If this dish looks familiar, it should. You may recall I first made this dish, my very first week of joining the Vidis Kochtüte service. Practice does make perfect! I think this dish came out even better than before. This was my husband’s first time trying this dish, since the previous time I made it, he was out of town. Last time, I used a rice cooker to make my rice, but this time I followed the recipe and made the rice on the stove. Everything came out delicious.

Asian vegetables with glass noodles

Once again, this is a familiar dish. I first made this recipe on week 4 of using Vidis Kochtüte. Last time, I had a problem with leaving the glass noodles too long and stringy. This time around, I took a pair of scissors to them. It was much easier to eat since the noodles weren’t as long. I think the one thing I would change is the amount of peas in it. There were both snow peas and canned peas in this dish, but it’s a bit overload.

Pasta with ham and broccoli 

My husband and I both love this dish and were happy to have it on repeat once more. The first time I cooked this dish was week 2 of using Vidis Kochtüte. It’s so easy to make and so delicious! This is one of those dishes I would definitely make on my own in the future. I love the mix of ham, cheese and pasta. The pine nuts give it a great crunch. Definitely a favorite dish of the Vidis Kochtüte experience!

Couscous salad with dried fruits and almonds

The first time I made this dish was week 2 of my Vidis Kochtüte experience. The first time I made this I noticed that it was a little too much on the sweet side. This time around, I used less of the dried fruits to cut back on the sweetness. We also paired it with some seasoned lamb skewers. On its own, this salad isn’t very filling as a dinner, so that’s why we paired it with some grilled seasoned lamb. It was a good choice. We ended up putting the seasoned meat bits into the salad. Made for a great mix and was delicious!

Zucchini soup with crispy baguette

Admittedly, I never got around to making this soup. Soup is something I don’t think to enjoy during the summer months, even if we’ve been having a rainy one here. My husband and I were never in the mood for soup, so we didn’t’ get around to making it. However, this dish was originally made during week 5 and you can read all about it there. Picture below is also from week 5.
