Every home cook prefers to have full bellies around the table rather than sheepishly admitting that there’s no more seconds to ravenous guests. Especially during your New Year house party! This does lead to overcooking and massive leftovers though, which isn’t great for the environment or your conscious. Why not prep meals that are easy to reheat, and can keep well for a day or two in the fridge?
Bliss is taking a whiff of Chicken Adobo as it’s bubbling away in the pot. The sweet, musty and garlicky scent of chicken soaking in spices, the herbal and slightly floral aromas of bay leaf and the slightly sharp smell of vinegar intermingles into a mouth watering mix.
Make prep work easier on yourself by buying ready-to-use Nutriplus Lacto Plus 111 Thighs from pandamart, and if you’re missing any spices, Pandamart also has Timur Bayleaf and Brightfields Red Chilli in ready stock.
Let your chicken soak up all that heavenly goodness and you’ll have a star dish for New Year in no time!
Spicy, tangy and so easy to whip up, impress your guests this New Year with this oceanic One-Pot Tom Yum Risotto that’s topped off with succulent prawns. You can use store-bought paste like Adabi Tomyam Paste and Maggi Ikan Bilis Stockcube to create the base stock effortlessly. Arrange the GST Frozen Prawn Meat on top of your risotto and steam them for 5-7 minutes before serving. By adding the prawns last, you’ll ensure that they don’t dry out!
Hearty chicken pot pie just got elevated with a medley of tongue-numbing Sichuan spices in this One-Pot Mala Chicken Pot Pie recipe. Grab your Green Living Premium Holland Potato and Australia Carrot from pandamart, cube and toss them into the pan for a quick sauté before adding the rest of the spices. A layer of puff pastry is then added on top before being baked to golden perfection. Can you imagine that spicy hit when you slice open this mala chicken pot pie? Absolutely yummy and ready to be served hot.
We’ve all been there, reaching for that ice cream pint and whittling away the entire tub in the course of a midnight movie only to regret the next morning. Replace that tub with Farmers Union Greek Style Natural yogurt, and you can still enjoy a rich, creamy dessert without the added sugars while improving your gut health. Both Greek and normal yogurt are made with dairy products, sour cream, buttermilk and kefir, but Greek yogurt has that lusciously thick consistency because whey and other liquids are strained out. Stir in a dollop of honey, sprinkle some blueberries on top, and kick start the New Year with a healthier you.
Mala Xiang Guo is almost synonymous with one-pot meals. We love how this Sichuan dish can be tailored to meet everyone’s preferences, be it the ingredients, spice levels or numbness. It’s no wonder this dish became super popular in Southeast Asia of late – you just can’t go wrong with it! Love vegetables? Enoki Mushroom, long beans and Beijing cabbage are great greens to add in. Meat lovers can go crazy with sliced Farm's Best Chicken Chop, GST Frozen Sotong Flower or GST Frozen Lamb Shoulder Slice. When you don’t know what else to make for New Year, whipping up a pot of Mala Xiang Guo is a definite win.
This two-step gooey mess of a treat is the go-to recipe for last minute meal prep. The sour spiciness of the kimchi balances out the creamy cheese in this One-Pot Kimchi Pumpkin Mac and Cheese, and the spring onions provide a refreshing zing to the mix. You don’t even need to sweat the cheese shredding if you use Emborg Shredded 3 Cheese Bake from pandamart.
Desserts are a must-have for any kind of celebration, so for the cooler December and January months, why not brew a warming One-Pot Apple, Osmanthus, and Cranberry Dessert Soup? Core and cut your Fuji Apples into large chunks, then pour the rest of the ingredients (cranberries, osmanthus flowers and rock sugar) into a pot before adding 1.5 L of water. This sweet floral dessert can be served warm or cold, making any leftovers a great chilled dessert for the next day.
If you love the earthy, umami flavors of mushrooms, you’ll dig this Pan Seared Mushrooms with Plums dish – it has three different kinds of mushrooms! Slice your King Oyster Mushrooms, Fresh Shitake Mushrooms and Champ Fungi White Button Mushrooms that you’ve just ordered in from pandamart and toss them into the pan after you’ve friend your onion and garlic. Plums go in last and once they softened, this dish is ready to go with rice.
