Zaatar-Roasted Vegetables

Popular in North African and Middle Eastern recipes, zaatar adds just the right amount of exotic flavor to familiar vegetables.


6 oz. Ready-Set-Serve Bite-Size Cauliflower Florets
6 oz. Ready-Set-Serve Carrot Chips
6 oz. Ready-Set-Serve Sliced Yellow Onions
2 Tbsp. canola oil
1 Tbsp. ground zaatar (or to taste)
1/2 cup Ready-Set-Serve Washed & Trimmed Cilantro


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Toss all vegetables with oil and zaatar. Spread all on metal baking sheet. Bake until all vegetables are browned. Serve with a dipping sauce for an appetizer or aside roasted meats for a side dish.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
