7 of the Best Take-Home Meals

Thursday 22nd September 2016

When You Need a Meal in a Flash

It’s not always possible to make a meal from scratch, especially when you’re short on time. That’s why many of our Market traders offer a selection of mouth-watering take-home meals for you to prepare quickly and easily in your own kitchen. Whether it’s a delicious lasagne made on-site; pre-stuffed chicken involtini; a side salad, or even a decadent dessert – we’ve got everything you need to whip up a tasty meal that you’re going to love. So without further ado, here are seven of the Market’s best take-home meals for you to try!

Lasagne – The Fresh Pasta Shop
Got a craving for lasagne but don’t have the time to make it? No worries. The Fresh Pasta Shop will do that for you. Choose traditional beef lasagne or the highly popular vegetable variety. We also love the roast pumpkin or the spicy lasagne with matriciana sauce! But don’t worry if lasagne doesn’t tickle your fancy, there’s also gnocchi, risotto and a stack of other pasta varieties available too. And here’s a fun fact: absolutely everything is made fresh daily at The Fresh Pasta Shop, so you know you’re getting top quality ingredients every time.

Okra Stew – Sweet Greek
Sweet Greek is your one-stop shop for delicious take-home meals and Kathy’s Mediterranean-style okra stew makes the perfect lunch, light dinner or side dish. Made with fresh tomato, onion, olive oil, salt ‘n’ pepper, and of course, okra; all ingredients are sourced fresh from the Market. Eat as is with feta cheese and a slice of crusty bread, or enjoy it as a side dish with steak or chicken. The best thing about Sweet Greek’s take-home meals are that all meals are served in oven trays so they’re ready and waiting to go!

Chilli Con CarneCleo’s Deli
You can’t go past a delicious bowl of chilli con carne – especially one that’s made fresh using Prahran Market ingredients. All you need to do with this serve of chilli con carne from Cleo’s is heat it up and serve with your choice of toppings like sour cream, coriander, chopped tomato… and some extra chilli if you really want to heat things up! Cleo’s Deli also has everything from house-made lamb ragu to Spanish-style croquettes; pasticcio (a Greek baked pasta dish) and more. Plus, Cleo’s is open seven days a week, which means you can enjoy Eva’s home-style cooking as often as you like.

Decadent Dessert Cup – Cioccolato Lombardo
Finish your day on a sweet note or entertain guests with something decadent from Cioccolato Lombardo. Our pick is the absolutely delicious dessert cups made by our chocolatier Tad Lombardo. Featuring a layer of strawberry confiture on the bottom and a white chocolate and cream cheese ganache, the dessert is then topped with a Tad’s legendary brownie cake and mouth-watering dark chocolate ganache. And if that isn’t enough, it’s decorated with aerated crumbed chocolate and a stunning milk chocolate piece. Do yourself a favour and try one.

Chicken Involtini – D&J Poultry
For some of the best take-home meals for feeding the whole family, head on over to D&J Poultry and pick up a selection of chicken involtini. Available in three flavours; apricot and macadamia; spinach pine nuts and mince; and gluten free spinach, pine nuts and ricotta they’re super easy to prepare. Just pop them in the oven at 180 degrees and cook for 45 minutes. Why not serve alongside some grilled asparagus or a fresh salad? Delish.

Jumbucks – Gary’s Quality Meats
Gary’s jumbucks are one of the best take-home meals, and if you haven’t tried them yet, you really should! Featuring tender diced lamb with mushrooms and a garlic soy sauce, all wrapped up in puff pastry; these little guys are about 200g each and take only about 30 mins to cook in an oven at 180 degrees. Serve alongside a healthy salad or some veggies and you’ve got a fantastic meal that requires little to no prep. You’re welcome.

Side Salads – Kooks Kitchen
Got the mains ready to go at home, but need some salads to dress things up? Easy. Kooks Kitchen will have you sorted in a flash with their tempting and nutritious salads. With ten salads available on rotation daily, there is always something new to try. The great thing about Kooks’ range of salads is that all the preparation is done for you, so all you need to do is empty your fave salad into a bowl and it’s ready to go!
