Holiday TartNot everyone has all day or their talented family members to help in the kitchen this Holiday Season. And that’s okay, because as long as you’re with people you love, don't sweat about the cooking. Keep it simple: who wants to cook a feast when all you need is a few simple ingredients? I’m talking 5 to be exact. You can create a beautiful, hassle free meal for the holidays with any of these recipes. And even if you do have a big party planned, you can spend more time sharing the food and spending time with your family around the table. Enjoy, and may your holiday season be happy, healthy, and tasty!

Tangy Tomato Slow-Cooker Pot Roast Chuck roast +Onions + Carrots + HerbNZest Chive Tomato Relish + Red Wine This could not be simpler: place your chopped veggies in the bottom of a slow cooker and top with your seasoned chuck roast (or any cut of beef for that matter). Top with a jar of our chive tomato relish and a cup of red wine and voila – you’re done! 6 hours later, dinner is served. Caramelized Apple Champagne Stuffing Holiday StuffingSourdough Bread+ HerbNZest Caramelized Apple Champagne Mustard + Vegetable or Chicken Broth + Brussel Sprouts + Pancetta This stuffing will steal focus at any holiday meal because of its zesty flavors. Step 1: Fry up some thick-slab pancetta (or bacon). Step 2: Set bacon aside and sauté the brussel sprouts in the rendered pork fat until tender, but not mushy. Step 3: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, bake bread until crispy (but not browned). Then combine all ingredients (enough broth just to moisten the bread) and bake for another 20 minutes. Enjoy hot and delicious. Pureed Curry Pumpkin Sweet Potatoes Sweet Potatoes+ Cream + Butter + HerbNZest Curry Pumpkin Pesto + Pecans Make your sweet potatoes how you usually would, but cut back a little on the cream/butter and try spooning in a few tablespoons of our Curry Pumpkin Pesto. Not only will it spice things up a little, the texture helps smooth things out without adding a lot of calories. You could also use our Fennel Saffron Pumpkin Butter here! Cran-Brie Turkey Bitescranberry turkey brie bites Puff Pastry + HerbNZest Chipotle Orange Cranberry Relish + Brie or Goat Cheese + Turkey or Ham + honey Technically, this could be served as an appetizer, or a dessert if you omit the turkey and ham. And it’s not a holiday without a little dessert! This recipe can be found (here).
