Weeknight Dinner Made Easy with Wild Garden Chermoula Marinade

Weeknight Dinner Made Easy with Wild Garden

I have always leaned towards making my own marinades, but when you don’t have the time or energy to think thru what flavors you want to put together, these mixes by Wild Garden are perfect! 

Since opening my bakery, butter bear shop, I have been leaning to really easy and quick dinner ideas. As always, I want them to be nutritious and delicious. I have been using Wild Garden quick marinades over the past few months and they are game changing! They have a line of authentic Mediterranean marinades, simmer sauces, and heat and serve pilafs that really capture the taste of the region.

Chermoula is a flavor-infused North African herb sauce and I love it because of the layers of flavors-cilantro, cumin, a little heat and with some lime juice a bright acidic finish. You can use this blend as a 10 minute marinade or spoon over your favorite grilled meats and veggies.

I first had this carrot salad at a pop-up by our Moroccan friend who runs Taste Of Marrakech. I love the contract of sweet and warm spice of ground cumin and the burst of the raisins. This salad rounds out this weeknight meal.
