Let’s face it. Serving a nutritious and delicious meal night after night is no easy task. Cooking for a family requires planning, time, and lots of experimentation. This is one of the core reasons we created superman cooks. Our goal is to make home cooks look like experienced chefs, and we don’t believe in fussy recipes with too many ingredients. Even an experienced chef like Keith relies on time-tested short cuts in a pinch, and Village Harvest is one of them. Village Harvest Origins offers smart and simple meal solutions that can be brought to life in 90 seconds; it’s convenience without compromise.
I am always asking Keith to come up with inspired seafood recipes, and the perfect opportunity presented itself when Village Harvest asked us to create a recipe to accompany their Coconut Turmeric rice. Keith created a Coconut Turmeric Rice Stuffed Tilapia, a deliciously simply and healthy meal with subtle hints of Thai flavors. Featuring organic Coconut Turmeric Brown Jasmine Rice and seasoned with shallots, chives and coconut, this dish is one exceptional way to nourish the ones you love.
The Origins Collection from Village Harvest features authentic recipes from India and Thailand, uncovered in the kitchens of home cooks and perfected on your dinner table. In addition to the Coconut Turmeric Rice (Thailand), Village Harvest offers the following varieties: Basmati & Lentil (India), Lemon Rice (India), Tikka Masala (India), and Thai Green Curry (Thailand). We like them because are healthy, organic, and they instantly add a pop of robust flavor to any meal.
