Palette Dome Cuisine April 6, 2022
Chef's Choice Wednesday Meals Weekly Update

April. Hope you survived April Fools’ Day, and now enjoying Cherry Blossoms Festival, some time at the fully open farmer's market, a hike in nature, backyard and pot planting or just some backyard sunbathing. The balance between sun, shade, warmth and cold is one that we much appreciate here in Palette Dome Cuisine, as it also marks a time of abundance in the markets, full of local fresh produce and herbs.

For us, this weekend is all about the garden - planting and seeding those early crops, filling the pots with blooming and fragrant annuals, and getting close to nature once again.

Enjoy the abundance of activities around DC this weekend, but do not forget your meal prep for the week. We will be there to help you with those several extra items you really do not want to spend the time on - let us do it for you!

Our menu for the week is full spring, and we hope you like the new "players". Our biggest spring marker is asparagus, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do, as it is all over our menu! From our vegan pasta primavera, to the blackened salmon that gets asparagus for a side, to the salmon asparagus quiche, all the way to a creamy yet dairy free asparagus soup. Did we say we like asparagus yet?

Wednesday Meals order cut-off time for meals is Tuesday 7PM.

We are a small batch production company, and we run out of items. Please remember to order as early as you can: our popular items are usually out of stock by Monday afternoon. Try to place your order prior for full product availability.

Go directly to our store to see the full menu updates

  • Soups. Spring classics are available: A vegetarian classic French leek potato soup, a springy celery root soup, and a vegan roasted asparagus soup.
  • Pasta Primavera with peas, leeks and beans is the vegan dish for the week. It is made with cashew based vegan cheese. The pasta we use this week is GF cassava spaghetti.
  • You can always add a fresh, organic, free range hard boiled egg to our soups and vegan dishes, case you want (or need) that extra protein.
  • Fish: Salmon. Blackened Salmon is here in its spring version with roasted sweet potato and seared asparagus.
  • Fish: herb crusted salmon. A spring version served with celery root pasta and green beans.
  • Poultry: Chicken Shawarma is here, and served with hummus, tahini, a salad and some roasted vegetable. This is a classic Mediterranean dish for the spice lovers.
  • Beef: a classic spaghetti Bolognese is always a favorite, especially when enriched with root vegetable and served with GF pasta. For spring we threw some peas into the mix!
  •  A fresh salad is an add-on you can always include with your meal. For a nominal up-charge you get a healthy appetizer or a crunchy side that makes any meal wholesome. Try our kale salad for added power greens with every meal.
  • You can now add chopped vegetable (crudites) to your Mediterranean salad. Another healthy option!
  • Chicken potpie is here. Get it while it lasts.
  • Salmon rillettes, Hummus, Tahini, Baba Ghanoush, Tzatziki, egg salad, and other staple salads \ snacks are in stock. Check our store for full availability.

Consider trying our fully tailored personal chef meal service.

Our weekly variety is very calculated, and you are welcome to follow the logic: at least two vegan or vegetarian dinner options with plant protein, choices that are good for you and good for our planet; healthy fish options, at least one of which is salmon for those omegas 3 and omega 6 healthy fatty acids; a choice of free range chicken and\or grass fed beef and\or lamb. Proteins set. Choose sides that are a joy to eat and are healthy for you, fibrous, rich in antioxidants and contain abundant minerals and vitamins. Think sweet potato, broccoli, peas, carrot, kale, spinach, chard, squash, beet, and the list go on. Mix and match as you please, be ginger on the salt while using ginger, garlic, turmeric, and herbs for added flavor and nutrition, add nuts and eggs for even more protein and health benefits, and you are off for a great start.
