My Cook: Kerala Fish Curry

April 12, 2019

Serves 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Cook Time: 2 hours

Kerala is a state in the southwestern portion of India known for its spice trade, which dates back thousands of years. Located on the coast, Kerala’s cuisine is also rich in seafood. Our recipe for Kerala fish curry exemplifies these two facets of Kerala: its historic spice trade and its seafood-rich cuisine. An aromatic blend of onion, garlic, and serrano chili provides the backbone for this..

My Cook: Halibut with Cilantro-Lime Butter

April 5, 2019

Serves 2

Active Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours

Halibut is a giant flatfish (the largest one ever recorded weighed over 500 pounds and was 8 feet in length) with a delicate flavor and low-fat content. With such a lean fish we wanted to pair it with a rich compound butter packed with cilantro, lime zest, serrano chile, and ground coriander for a zesty, bright, and aromatic finish. Be sure to take the butter out of the refrigerator before..

My Cook: Banana Bread

April 1, 2019

Serves: 8 - 10

Total prep time: 10 minutes

Total cook time: 3 hours 15 minutes

Banana bread is a warm and comforting breakfast option that has the added benefit of being quite portable - perfect for busy mornings. We recommend baking a batch early in the week so that you have breakfast planned for a few days (if it lasts that long). The key to a successful banana bread that is steeped in fragrant banana flavor is the use of overripe bananas...

My Cook: Glazed Lemon Cake Bars

March 14, 2019

Serves: 8

Active Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Cooking Time: 4 hours 15 minutes

Lemony, sweet, and tangy, these lemon cake bars are bursting with bright flavor. We use lemon peel as well as lemon juice to pack as much citrus flavor as possible into this dessert. Not only do we use lemon in the cake, but we also call for it in the syrup that’s brushed onto the hot cake and the glaze that’s poured onto the cooled crust. We didn’t shy away from..

My Cook: Manicotti

March 13, 2019

Serves 2

Active prep time: 15 minutes

Total cook time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Traditional manicotti recipes call for rolled, homemade crepes instead of store bought pasta. While homemade crepes stuffed with ricotta and topped with marinara sound delicious, we wanted a recipe that wouldn’t take hours to make. Our version only takes about 15 minutes to assemble thanks to the uncooked manicotti tubes, which are a breeze to fill. The filling for the..

My Cook: Blueberry Coffee Cake

March 12, 2019

Serves: 8

Active Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Cook Time: 4 hours 15 minutes

Coffee cake is a true morning hero. A crunchy, crumbly topping of butter and sugar sits nestled on a pillow of soft, vanilla cake, and we call this breakfast. You might raise a few eyebrows if you tuck into a slice of devil’s food or birthday cake with your morning coffee (except here at Suvie, we don’t judge), but coffee cake is given a free pass. Eat your cake! And..

My Cook: Sesame Chicken

March 6, 2019

Serves: 4

Total prep time: 20 minutes

Total cook time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Sesame chicken is a classic Americanized dish found in Chinese restaurants across the United States. Sweet, sour, and sticky, this dish is usually deep fried, but we have adapted this recipe for your Suvie without sacrificing any flavor. Typically this dish is sweeter than it is spicy, but if you want to up the heat feel free to increase the amount of chili sauce to 1 tbsp...

My Cook: Baked Stuffed Shells

March 1, 2019

Serves: 2-3

Active prep time: 25 minutes

Total cook time: 1 hour 30 minutes

Baked stuffed shells are the perfect parcel of pasta, filling, and sauce. We stayed with a classic combination of large pasta shells, marinara sauce (jarred or homemade, up to you), and creamy ricotta filling flecked with basil and red pepper flakes. No need to boil the shells before you put them in your Suvie, the long cook time will adequately soften them. Filling..

My Cook: Breakfast Snack Cake

February 28, 2019

For busy mornings look no further than this delicious and wholesome breakfast snack cake. Packed with oats, applesauce and bananas and topped with crunchy nuts and coconut this cake is as satisfying as it is tasty. When testing this recipe we liked a good amount of honey to complement the flavor of the nuts and coconut, but you can decrease the amount if you would like it less sweet. If you have dietary restrictions this cake can easily be..

My Cook: Mississippi Pot Roast

February 21, 2019

This recipe comes to us from Kickstarter backer Shaneh Woods, who told us that this was her favorite slow cooker recipe, so we had to try our hand at adapting it for her Suvie! There are few ingredients, but combined they provide a punch of flavor. Here we use chuck roast, a classic cut for slow cooking, tangy and spicy pepperoncini peppers, butter, and a combination of dry ranch dressing and au jus gravy mix. The ranch and the au jus mix are..
