CHAMPS, Wing Sauce Competition & Farmer’s Market This Saturday in Mona!

IMG-20190319-WA0001

Non-profit organization, New Kingston Rotaract Club (Youth arm of Rotary) is having their annual Wing Sauce Competition this Saturday, March 30th by the Mona Dam. Like last year, they are having a Farmer’s Market too, encouraging us to eat healthy and buy our local produce, while contributing to charity at the same time. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Judging and sampling usually takes place at about 2:30/3:00pm. Suga will be judging again!

Then you can head down to the National Stadium to watch our very own young athletes put on quite a show at Champs! The writing is on the wall for the Girls with Edwin Allen, but for the Boys, will KC beat Calabar this year as they seem to be in position to do, or did they peak too early in the season?

Keep up with Suga Lifestyle’s Facebook and Instagram Page to keep updated with Champs and keep up with the New Kingston Rotaract Club by following them on Instagram @nkrcjamaica. If you are between the ages of 18-30, see how you can join them!

Suga’s Tip: If you have any left over Romesco, serve it on your morning whole wheat/grain toast with a boiled egg.

Instructions:

1. Prep the Cauliflower

Heat oven to 425°F.

Cut the Cauliflower into 1-inch florets, discarding any leaves or thick stalks.

Combine the Cauliflower, paprika and 2 tsp. Olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, then toss.

2. Roast the Chicken and Cauliflower

*Ensure you spread the Cauliflower in an even layer beside the Chicken on the sheet pan

Roast until the Chicken is cooked through, then transfer to a plate and rest.

Continue roasting the Cauliflower until browned and tender, perhaps for an additional 6-8 minutes.

Return Cauliflower to bowl where it was tossed to cool slightly.

3. Cut and Cook Scallions

Cut and cook Scallions into 1-inch lengths and cook until charred for 3-4 minutes, then transfer to a plate.

4. Finish Cauliflower

Add Scallion, Parsley and Olives to the roasted Cauliflower and stir to combine.

Add a bit more salt and pepper.

5. Serve

Add the green Romesco and top with the Chicken, then serve Cauliflower and remaining Romesco on the side.

ENJOY!
