More Meal Prep | Week 2


– Welcome to another episode of our weekly meal prep series. I am very excited about today’s menu because it is all inspired by the yummy flavors of the South. (zydeco music) To kick things off this week, we are whipping up a big
batch of red beans and rice. One of my all-time
favorite Southern dishes. Now I’m doing this in a dutch oven, you can totally do this in a
sauce pan if you wanted to, or you could even do
this in a slow cooker, that would work as well. So, this week we are starting off with some sausage that I’ve
taken out of the casings. I’m using some pork breakfast sausage, you could really use any
kind of sausage you want. You could use turkey, or chicken, or even vegetarian
sausage, I love that idea. Because you really could keep
this completely vegetarian. In my dutch oven, I’ve
got some oil heating up in a pan and I’m just
going to brown my sausage. I’m going to use my spoon
to break the sausage into little pieces, and
then, once it’s cooked, I’m going to remove it from the pan and sautee my vegetables. So I’m just adding a
little more oil to my pan and then I’m going to
toss in some sweet onion, some celery, and some bell pepper. I’m using both green and red, you can use any color
bell pepper you like. I’m going to let these veggies sautee for four or five minutes, or until they’ve softened up completely. Then I’m going to add a couple
cloves of minced garlic, and some Cajun seasoning. Now I’m using my homemade Cajun seasoning. I’ve left the recipe in
the description box below if you wanna make your
own, or you could use the store bought kind, that
would work just as well. I’m going to let my
garlic and my spices toast for about 30 seconds,
and then I’m going to add my red kidney beans, some
long grain white rice, and my pork back into my dutch oven. And then I’m going to top
it all off with some broth. I’m using veggie broth in this recipe, you could totally use chicken broth if that’s what you have on hand. You wanna give it a
good stir and make sure that all of your rice is submerged, and then you’re just gonna
turn your heat down to low, put the cover on your pot, and let it cook for between 20 and 25 minutes, or until all of the
water has been absorbed. Once the water’s been absorbed,
this stuff is ready to eat. This yummy dish will last in your fridge, for between three and four days, or you can make a huge batch
and store it in your freezer and just reheat it as you need it. Now let’s talk about
our greens for the week. This week, it is all about collard greens. Now you can do this same
thing with some kale or some Swiss chard, but
I love collard greens because they are loaded with nutrients, particularly with
calcium, and now you know. So I’m starting with some
butter heating up in a skillet. And to that I’m going to add some garlic. I’m gonna let that garlic go
for about ten or 15 seconds, and then I’m going to
add my collard greens. All I’ve done is just removed the stem and given them a really rough chop. I’m going to toss my greens
in my butter and garlic, and then put the lid on
until my greens have wilted. Once they’ve wilted, I’m
just gonna season them with salt and pepper, and
they are ready to eat. I love sauteed greens like
this, because you can put them in all sorts of dishes like pasta dishes, or scrambled eggs, or even in that yummy red beans and rice we just made. How great would that be? Next up, we have some
roasted sweet potatoes. All I’ve done is peeled and
diced two sweet potatoes and I’m just going to toss
them in some olive oil, some salt and pepper, and I’m just going to break up some fresh rosemary. This is totally an optional
step, but I love the taste of rosemary with sweet potato. I think it’s a great flavor combination. We’re going to toss these until our potatoes are well coated,
and then we’re going to pour them onto a baking sheet, and pop them into the oven at 350 degrees for between 35 and 45 minutes,
or until your potatoes are soft and yummy. Next up we are going to
prepare our salad for the week, and this week it is all
about a sweet corn salad. I’m using canned corn in this recipe because that’s what I had on hand, but you could just as
easily use frozen corn that you’ve cooked off, no problem. So, to our corn, we want to add
some flavor and some crunch. We’re going to do that by
adding some red bell pepper, some beautiful chopped celery, and some finely diced red onion. We’re going to dress
the salad really simply with just a little bit
of white wine vinegar and some olive oil, and
some salt and pepper. We’re going to finish it off with one of my favorite flavors, finely chopped fresh basil. All you need to do is give this a stir and it’ll last in your
fridge for five or six days! How yummy is that? For our fresh veggies this week, I’ve got some red bell
pepper, some carrots, and some fresh broccoli. I’m also going to prepare
some beautiful orange slices because I love having fresh
fruit that’s ready to eat. Finally we are wrapping things up today with a little bit of decadence in the form of my unbelievably delicious cheddar jalapeno cornbread muffins. So we’re gonna start by
mixing up our dry ingredients. So I’m going to be
combining some corn meal with some all-purpose flour,
a little bit of sugar, some baking powder, and
a sprinkling of salt. I’m going to whisk this together very well and then I’m going to set it aside. In a smaller bowl I’m combining two eggs, some milk, and some melted butter. And I’m going to whisk
this together really well and then mix it into my dry ingredients. Finally I’m going to
start building all sorts of flavor into these muffins. So I’m going to be adding
some sharp white cheddar that I’ve just shredded up,
and to that I’m going to add some green onion, and some
finely minced jalapeno. I’m going to scoop my batter into a well-greased muffin tin
and then garnish each with a little slice of jalapeno. How pretty are those? Into the oven these are going to go at 350 degrees for
between 15 and 17 minutes, or until your muffins are set. I hope you’ll give this week’s menu a try, and if you do, be sure to
Tweet or Instagram me a photo, because you know I love seeing
what you’re coming up with in your very own kitchens. And, don’t miss Monday’s
episode of Lighten Up. Because we are creating
a lightened up version of a Southern classic,
pulled pork sandwiches. And finally, if you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to The Domestic Geek, because there’s lots more deliciousness where this came from.

    I absolutely love these meal prep videos.  Keep them coming.

    I'm from the south and I do my collards low and slow with ham hocks.  If anyone watching has never seen them before and wants to try them, make sure you wash them before you cook them as they can have a lot of dirt on them – even when you buy them in the "pre-washed" bags.

    Wonderful ideas.
    I also love that you always give ideas on how to change something with meat to be vegetarian, even though I would probably just leave out the sausage from the rice completely because I can't stand vegetarian sausages and I don't eat the real stuff.
    I need to try the cornbread muffins asap, the love sounds wonderful too.
    And since I just had some sweet potato curry after not eating sweet potato for a long time my love for them had been newly awakened and I will probably make some fries as soon as I have them again with a self made dip 🙂
    Yumm.
    I really like your channel and your recipes are always wonderful. Creative, simple and healthy.

    Just a lil southern tips ( I was raised in Lousiana ). It helps the beans if you soak them over night with a few clove of garlic. Beans were tourdationly made on Mondays with the left overs of sunday dinner. So the more veggies you put in the better (no carrots). Also these are great if you have a slow cooker. You can set it b4 work. The longer beans cook the more flavor they will get and your water will eventually turn into a gravy const. :).
    I can't wait to try this greens recipe tho. Ussaly we put bacon in it. Want to try the healthy version thanks for posting 🙂

    None of these recipes look anything like what I grew up with. I wasn't paying attention and didn't here her say she was making red beans and rice and it wasn't until she added the rice that I realized. But these look like interesting alternatives that are less intimidating to those who those who didn't grow up eating southern food (using sausage instead of fat back or ham hock) so I will give them a try.
