As of late, I’ve become a little more adventurous with my cooking. By adventurous I mean stepping away from my “go to” dishes that I’m sure everyone is extremely tired of. Let’s just say if I don’t hear “How many more bites???” it’s a very good day.
When The Motherhood approached me this summer with a chance to really put my “adventurous” cooking into action with Lawrys, I couldn’t say no… Although, I did fear for the other Orlando bloggers who were teamed up with me… Specifically Angie because we were in charge of yes… The Main Dish!
Our team was tasked with coming up with “On The Go” (ie. for busy people like me) dishes – appetizer, side dish and main dish using Lawrys Balsamic Herb Marinade, Lawrys Season Salt Marinade and Lawrys Seasoned Salt. (I’m giving away a package of all three below)
Share the taste of our sweet success below. Hope these “On The Go” dishes make cooking for your family a little easier and tastier.
Crostini with White Bean Spread, Arugula, Prosciutto
Prep & Cook: 10 minutes
- 1 baguette, sliced into 1/2-inch thick slices
- 1 can cannelini beans (or other white bean, such as Great Northern)
- 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- Baby arugula (about 1/2 cup)
- Thinly-sliced prosciutto (about 1/4 pound)
Toast your bread slices on both sides. This can be done in an oven, or by heating skillet over medium high heat. Add bread slices and toast for about 30 seconds per side. Watch closely so they don’t burn. Make the white bean spread. Drain the liquid from the can of beans. Add to a food processor and puree. Add olive oil, Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and pepper and process until well blended. Assemble the crostini. Spread about 2 tsp. of the bean spread on each baguette. Top with 3-4 pieces of baby arugula and a small slice of the prosciutto.
Asparagus Side Dish

- Olive oil

Heat olive oil in pan. Place asparagus in pan and squeeze lemon juice on top. Top with lemon zest and add a few dashes of Lawrys Season Salt. Turn asparagus while cooking until desired tenderness.
