For this culinary adventure we decided to try our hand with Bomba’s Lamb Pinchos Morunos & Zucchini Pilaf and Tipico’s Gnocchi Salsiccia & Broccoli.
How’d we do, you ask?
Tipico’s Gnocchi Salsiccia & Broccoli Firstly, we didn’t have to make the gnocchi, which saved us a lot of time and rolling. And let’s face it who wouldn’t want gnocchi prepared by the Tipico’s chefs personally! The Gnocchi Salsiccia & Broccoli was a straightforward dish that while simple to prepare was delicious to eat and gave us a few ideas to incorporate into our own cooking.
Bomba’s Lamb Pinchos Morunos & Zucchini Pilaf Marinated and pre-prepared the Bomba’s lamb was everything you want it to be, hitting all those flavour notes that you just can’t seem to get when you throw it together yourself. While the gnocchi was relatively easy to cook, the Lamb Pinchos Morunos & Zucchini Pilaf required a little more finesse. The pilaf itself showed us a new way to cook the classic basmati rice, which we will definitely be doing again. Tossing the lamb with the prepared spice mix, makes for a tasty hero when paired with the zucchini pilaf.
Now all we have to do is figure out what was in that spice mix!
Both meals were fun and easy to cook but if you find you’re not sure what to do next, don’t worry! MAKE-OUT Meals have a series of online videos to help you on your way.
