2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the potatoes and onions

  • Scrub the potatoes; cut the potatoes into ½-inch pieces. 
  • Thinly slice the onion; set aside ¼ cup [½ cup] for the broccoli salad.

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the potatoes, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 5 to 6 minutes. 

Add all except ¼ cup [½ cup] onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is lightly browned and the potatoes are tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. While the potatoes and onion are cooking, make the broccoli salad.


Make the broccoli and green romesco salad

  • Separate the broccoli crowns from the thick stems; cut the crowns into ¼-inch florets. Peel any thick outer layer from the separated stems; thinly slice the stems crosswise.
  • Core and coarsely chop the apple.

In a medium bowl, stir together the green romesco, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, and 1 to 2 teaspoons water; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the broccoli florets and stems, apple, and remaining sliced onion and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep your protein

  • Steak, chicken, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Chicken breasts or pork loin chops: Pat the meat dry with a paper towel; cut into 1-inch strips. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; crumble or cut into ½-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.


Cook your protein; finish the dish

In the same pan used for the potatoes and onion, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes for steak, pork, tofu, or plant-based chicken and 3 to 4 minutes for chicken.

Stir in the potatoes, onion, and mole poblano spice blend and cook, stirring occasionally, until your protein is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer your protein, potatoes, and broccoli and green romesco salad to individual bowls and serve.
