Bay Area fans, have you tried Jessie et Laurent in San Rafael, CA? We're big fans! Thoughtfully prepared meals delivered right to your door. We had a lunch to remember!

Here are some of our favorites:

Vegetarian Enchiladas with Black Bean Salsa Vegetarian Enchiladas with Black Bean Salsa

No sacrifices for vegetarians. More flavorful than a chicken enchilada! I devoured it. The salsa was perfectly spiced and a very generous portion. More tomato-based than bean based. My boss stole the rest of my salsa. The pumpkin pie spices in Mighty Leaf Tea Bombay Chai pair nicely with the butternut squash in the enchilada.  

Niman Ranch Americana Pot Roast Niman Ranch Americana Pot Roast

So good you can't talk while you are eating it! The meat is tender and juicy. The sauce was outstanding. We guess it was wine based with finely chopped carrots and parsley. We recommend pairing this dish with Organic Earl Grey by Mighty Leaf Tea since full bodied black tea complements hearty meat dishes.  

Grilled Mahi Mahi with Papaya Leek Sauce

A flavor explosion! Perfectly cooked Mahi Mahi. The fish was juicy and the dish was full of flavor variations. Delicate green teas pair well with fish so we recommend Mighty Leaf Tea Green Tea Tropical, which teems with tropical fruit.

Lasagne Florentine

Super tasty and tall. Maybe 6 layers high of comfort food. Not just a tomato and cheese filling – spinach too. The creamy, mild cheese in this dish leads us to pair it with Mighty Leaf Tea Organic Green Dragon.

Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Decadent but the carrots tone down the guilt! Perfect texture. The pumpkin pie spices were dialed up. We suggest pairing with Mighty Leaf Tea Vanilla Bean.

Green Tea Buns

Marketing Intern Cole Margen returns to the kitchen and shares a surprising new tea recipe.
–Editor’s Note

Recently, I’ve been more and more interested in the potential for tea in actual food–especially desserts! I can’t think of a better way to explore the complex flavors found in tea than by including them in my edible creations. And last weekend I had a delicious success with green tea steamed buns!

Green tea buns, or “mushi pan” as they are known in Japanese, are super easy to make, tasty, and reasonably healthy, considering they are steamed instead of fried or baked. They go great as a dessert or a light afternoon snack during tea time. The buns use matcha green tea to really bring color and a unique tea flavor to the dish. Matcha as a drink is slightly vegetal, and buttery, which makes it a perfect addition to the buns.

Here’s the recipe I like best. It uses honey and yogurt to bring added moisture to the buns. These buns are best enjoyed on their own, or with a cup of tea. They are a great summertime dessert to make for family and friends and are also easy to prepare. One batch of buns takes about a total of 20 minutes from start to finish. Enjoy, fellow tea enthusiasts and until next time be well and drink more tea.
