Frozen Bowls and Skillets Cooking and Serving Tips
Make these bowls and skillets your own with these easy tips and tricks to getting the most out of the Primal Kitchen Frozen line.
- Turn Up the Heat! The secret to prepping frozen veg? High heat! Try a cast iron skillet, which retains heat, and preheat the pan on the stove on medium-high to high heat with avocado oil for a sizzling skillet! It’s the same deal with the oven: Preheat to 450ºF for optimal results.
- Give ‘em Some Space. When you’re heating up the skillets, don’t overcrowd the wok, skillet, or pan. The ingredients should be evenly spread out while they cook for the best texture.
- Put a Lid on It. Place the lid on the skillet when cooking (except when you need to stir, of course) to trap the heat and moisture inside the pan. You’ll be rewarded with more even cooking and tender meat.
- Less Is More. When using a microwave or oven, follow the cooking directions on the box to avoid overcooking the ingredients in the bowl.
- Switch it Up. Our skillets are just a starting point for your culinary creativity. Enjoy as is, or add extra spices; swap Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil for our Extra Virgin Olive Oil; or add fresh herbs. Try the Steak Fajitas in cabbage cups, or put the No-Soy Teriyaki Chicken on top of rice.
