5 Quick International Dishes

Written by Terra's Kitchen | Thu, Sep 22, '16

Don’t become a victim of boring meals for the sake of convenience! From schnitzel to souvlaki to puttanesca, our recipes for international dishes will broaden your horizons to flavors beyond our borders. Stamp your culinary passport with these quick, healthy meals inspired by unique cuisine from around the world.


  1. Try Puttanesca from Italy. It’s not hard to tell that this style of sauce hails from Italy. Puttanesca sauce became popular in the 1960s, according to the  Professional Union of Italian Pasta Makers. There are a few different versions, from Neapolitan to the Lazio, and, of course, tons of secret family recipes. We’re not keeping our recipe a secret!. You can easily make our Pasta Puttanesca and Arugula Salad w/ Honey-Balsamic Vinaigrette in only 25 minutes, which leaves plenty of time for #tabletalk.
  2. Scarf down Schnitzel from Austria. You may think you know what  schnitzel is from The Sound Of Music’s catchy song “My Favorite Things,” but have you ever actually tried it? Our healthy meal variation is Chicken Schnitzel w/ Sweet & Sour Apple Cabbage is a colorful dish that you will want to make again and again. #TKhack: Try ladling the cabbage and apple mixture over mashed potatoes and thank us later!
  3. Saute upgraded Stir Fry from China. Average takeout food does not count as broadening your family’s culinary horizons. In the same amount of time it takes to order and pick up, you can have this Honey-Soy Salmon and Stir-Fry Vegetables that isn’t full of MSG. It may not come with a fortune cookie, but you don’t even need one to know that tomorrow’s prospects look extremely good.
  4. Savor a Souvlaki from Greece.  Souvlaki is a popular fast food in Greece, typically served on a skewer. To make this meal even faster, we skipped the skewer in our new deconstructed Chicken Souvlaki Bowl. Equally delicious and super easy, this is the perfect meal to cook for a day where you find yourself dreaming of an escape to the blue waters of Santorini.
  5. Succotash is shockingly from the USA! Okay, we admit, it’s impossible to make this dish without doing our best Looney Tunes impression of Sylvester the Cat saying “Sufferin' succotash.” While this succotash isn’t technically international, we were interested to learn that the word succotash comes from the Naragansett language of the Algonquin Indians and means “broken kernels of corn.” In the same amount of time it takes to watch an episode of cartoons, you can have this Kale & Corn Succotash Over Cheesy Chicken on the table. Regardless of how good (or bad) your Sylvester impression is, we consider that a huge win.
