DIVINE X Dole Canada
If you are looking for a delicious, healthy meal that is so easy to make that even your kids can help, look no further. Chef Cory Vitiello teamed up with Dole Canada to prepare simple snack and meal ideas using Dole products. The Soba Noodle and Mandarin Orange Bowl brings your favourite Asian flavours together. The star ingredient is Dole Mandarin Oranges. If you buy egg-free soba noodles, it’s also vegan. It’s the perfect dish for Meatless Mondays.
Buy shredded carrots and cabbage so that your little one can get involved in meal prep. They can help by measuring out the ingredients while you boil the soba noodles and cut the rest of the vegetables. The dish will be ready in no time so that you can spend less time cooking and more time together as a family.
