purple cabbage and roasted potato salad | the domesticated wolf

It’s probably no surprise to any of you that I love to cook.  I’ve written a cookbook (coming out this spring!) and I cook every weekday night at home for me and my husband.  But as a new mom, sometimes I can use some help – even (maybe especially?) in the kitchen.

The nice folks at Marley Spoon offered to send me a few meals to try out.  Marley Spoon is a meal delivery service that beautifully packages each dish’s pre-portioned ingredients alongside a detailed and easy to follow recipe card.  Meals start at under $9.00 a pop, making dinner healthy and affordable.  We opted for two vegetarian dishes and OMG – we were in for a treat!

The first dish I made was the Roasted Potato and Cabbage Salad with Walnuts, Raisins and Cheese Toasts.  So good! You can see from the photos below, the dish is so gorgeous, bright and visually appealing.  I really loved the flavor of the pickled shallots with the raisins.  The dish had amazing texture from the walnuts, cabbage and potatoes and was perfectly sweet and sour.  And the leftovers were still delicious the next day.  I always love a recipe that’s good the night you make it and just as good (even better?) the following day.

My second dish was the Red Lentil Curry Soup with Yoghurt and Cashews.  We are big lentils fans in this house and I’m obsessed with soup, so it was an easy choice.  This soup is flavored with ginger, curry powder and lime juice.  Yogurt, cashews and cilantro are added over the top for even more flavor and a delicious bite.  Seriously amazing. It’s very thick and really flavorful.  I bet this would also be delicious blended into a really smooth and creamy soup.  Already planning to make this again – yum!  I served my portion with extra lime, extra cilantro, extra cashews and extra yogurt sauce.  What can I say? I’m big on flavor…
