White Bean “Meatballs” with Zoodles & Heirloom Tomato Puttanesca (Gluten-Free)

Our “meatballs” are based from cannellini beans, roasted red peppers, yellow onion, panko crumbs, walnuts and classic Italian spices & herbs. We’ll whip all of this yumminess into balls and bake them, then smother them with a heirloom tomato puttanesca sauce full of Mediterranean flavors. All served on a bed of zucchini & summer squash zoodles and a side of Parmesan Romano cheese on the side, we’re giving this classic a fantastico makeover!

June’s Strawberry Citrus Jar with Farro

We’re partnering with a local Wheat Ridge gardener to harvest their fresh June-Bearing strawberries, hence the name of this vibrant jar. The berries are just ripening so they are the highlight of this jar, but we’re mixing in tangerine slices, Kalamata olives, fresh baby greens, pistachio nuts, and fiber-rich farro. To finish this beauty off we’re adding a wedge of feta cheese.

Thai-Inspired Noodle Jar with Butter Tofu (Gluten-Free)

Fresh, satisfying, lots of vegetables, delicate brown rice noodles, and plenty of protein. The show stopper in this meal is the butter tofu, similar to more traditional butter chicken but vegan. The ribbons of carrot, cucumber, red peppers, scallions, and chilled edamame not only add vibrant color to the dish, but also lots of protein, fiber, and crunch. The Thai-inspired dressing is extremely flavorful and complements the noodles and veggies perfectly.

Triple ‘P’ Pineapple, Potato, & Peanut Curry (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Fresh Pineapple,  Potatoes, and Peanuts create the base for this meal, but it is also veggie-packed with peppers, carrots, baby bok choy, and sweet yellow onion. Turmeric, known for its bright yellow color and anti-inflammatory effects, along with mild Curry Paste, Coconut Milk, and fresh Ginger makes this dish a superhero of healthy benefits

Chili Relleno Mac & Cheese with Roasted Cauliflower

Chile relleno is a delicious Mexican dish where roasted poblano peppers are stuffed with cheese (typically a blend of Mexican cheeses) and often meat, then coated in masa (corn) and fried. We’re bringing some of these traditional ingredients to classic Macaroni & Cheese, creating a seriously delicious jar meal. We’re taking some elements from each of these two dishes, and adding crispy roasted cauliflower to keep the nutritional factor up

Apricot-Glazed Carrot, Beet & Lentil Jar (Vegan)

We’re hand-making the apricot glaze to roast the carrots and beets in, giving them that sweet and tangy flavor. Lemon-massaged kale and nutty lentils are served over a bed of freekeh (can be substituted with quinoa for a GF version). The maple lemon tahini dressing is a perfect, vegan finale to this power-packed jar full of flavors and nutrients.

Cibo’s Ratatouille with Creamy Polenta (Gluten-Free)

In our ratatouille, we are collecting the best local produce of the season like eggplant, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, peppers, red potatoes, and white onion. This colorful cornucopia is served on top of creamy polenta, a creamy Italian corn-based porridge, and topped with goat cheese for maximum taste-bud enjoyment!

Grilled Pineapple, Mushroom, Rice Jar with Kale Cilantro Pesto (Gluten Free, Vegan)

We’re grilling fresh pineapple, bell peppers, and Portobello mushrooms in a sweet teriyaki sauce and layering them on top of fragrant jasmine rice, then topping the jar off with a fresh kale & cilantro pesto. Last, this jar of goodness is finished with crushed Macadamia Nuts

Lemony-Mint Penne Primavera

Primavera means spring in Italian, and it is also one of my favorite seasons for fresh veggies and recipes like this one. Cibo’s version starts out with whole-wheat penne pasta (gluten-free penne can be used by request), then loaded with lots of springtime vegetables like broccoli, peas, bell peppers, lightly roasted campari tomatoes, zucchini and basil. But the lemon-mint creme sauce is what really kicks this jar meal up a few notches.

Roasted Butternut Squash Street Tacos (Gluten-Free)

You won’t even have to hit the street for these satisfying street tacos. Roasted butternut squash, perfect this time of year, fiber and protein-filled Anasazi beans, and a purple cabbage slaw are the heart of this meal, with scallions, cojita cheese, and our own avocado tomatillo crema served on the side.

Dried Cherry, Kale, French Lentil & Pistachio Granola Jar (Gluten-Free)

Montmorency cherries are tarter than typical red cherries, and Michigan produces over 90,000 tons of these flavorful fruits each year. When dried, they are a perfect blend of tart and sweet, and compliment the nuttiness of this jar meal perfectly. We’re making a pistachio nut granola for some crunch, and topping the jar with goat cheese for a little creaminess.

Lemon Artichoke Orzo Soup

This soup is filling, comforting and loaded with fresh garlic and turmeric so if you’re feeling at all under the weather, it’ll have you feeling better in no time. Made with artichoke hearts, orzo pasta, lemon juice, red lentils, spinach, fresh dill and lots of Mediterranean seasoning, and finished off with organic 2% milk, we’re guessing this soup will quickly become a Customer favorite. And it’s freezer-friendly so you can stock up for the colder weather ahead!

Roasted Carrot, Couscous, & Early Summer Veggie Jar

This dish uses Israeli Couscous, Turmeric-Roasted Carrots, Baby Peas, and delicate and buttery Artichoke Hearts, along with fresh Mint and a Greek Tatziki Sauce. And, for an extra-special treat, enjoy our hand-crafted Libyan Baklava on the side! Show support AND enjoy an amazing new Cibo Meal!

We’re mixing this pasta-like squash with classic Mediterranean ingredients like roasted chickpeas, sun-dried tomatoes, bell peppers, Kalamata olives, spinach, and red onion. But the best part, we’re topping it all off with a vegan Parsley Pesto using Pepita seeds.

Sunshine  Creamy Tahini Curly Pasta Jar (Vegan)

This dish takes its inspiration from our sunny days with a blend of colorful produce like spiralized squash, roasted constellation tomatoes, crisp green beans, parsley, and artichoke hearts, along with black-eyed peas and Kalamata olives.

Greek Nachos with Herb Tzatziki Sauce

We’re packing this jar full of classic Greek ingredients like Kalamata Olives, Roasted Tomatoes, Lemon & Oregano-Marinated Cucumbers & Red Onions, Roasted Chickpeas, and fresh Feta Cheese. For the “cheese” we’re making an herb yogurt Tzatziki Sauce from scratch, and serving Pita Chips on the side. Enjoy these Greek Nachos with all the flavor and no cheese coma!

Golden Thai Coconut Soup with Tofu (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Our vegan version consists of traditional ingredients like sweet coconut milk, galangal seasoning, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and lots of colorful veggies like bell peppers, red onion, shiitake mushrooms, eggplant, carrots, and bok choy, along with protein-packed organic tofu cubes.

Chickpea Tikka Masala with Green Rice (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

This super-yummy Tikka Masala in a Mason jar is a Customer-favorite…we’re replacing the more traditional chicken, yogurt, and heavy cream with roasted chickpeas and coconut milk for a comforting, warm vegan meal. And the added flavors of the Green Rice, made with Basmati rice, broccoli, cilantro, garlic, and green chilies takes this meal to another level of Cibo satisfaction.

Portobello Fajita Burrito Jar (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

Panzanella is a Tuscan dish made of ripe, bursting tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, and wine-soaked bread, often stale, similar to a crouton. Our Colorado version with organic Palisade peaches and roasted Olathe sweet corn. Mixed with little ciliegine mozzarella balls, toasted pine nuts, and fresh basil, served with a traditional Italian vinaigrette.

Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Jar (Gluten-Free, Vegan)

There is definitely an Asian flavor profile to this vegetarian meal and the creamy peanut butter dressing with a hint of ginger is absolutely to die for. Served with our Cibo Meals organic tofu cubes.

Sister Gardens Alu Gobi with Sweet & Purple Potatoes (Gluten-Free)

There are so many great Indian dishes, but Alu Gobi, a traditional dish made with cauliflower, peas, and potatoes simmered in a mild curry sauce, is my favorite. Our version swaps out the traditional potatoes with sweet potatoes to add some color and fiber. Served on a fluffy bed of Basmati rice and with a side of mini-naan bread.

Wild Rice & Kale Cornucopia (Gluten Free)

This colorful dish is a blend of fluffy wild rices, Tuscan kale, constellation tomatoes, red bell peppers, and green onions. Wild rice has an irresistible nutty flavor, and is higher in protein than most whole grains and is a good source of fiber, folate, and magnesium. Served with a handmade citrus vinaigrette and topped with crunchy sunflower seeds,

Chipotle Pumpkin Black Bean Soup (Gluten-Free)

This creamy soup, made with organic pumpkin and a coconut milk base, then flavored perfectly with smoky chipotle pepper (mild) and hints of cinnamon and cumin, creates the perfect seasonal soup. Toasted pepita seeds and a topping option of Smoky Cilantro Greek Yogurt finishes it off.

Cibo Meals is literally a life saver for me. As a full-time working mom and educator, finding time and energy to meet my body’s basic needs is sometimes a stretch. As a social justice-focused educator, organizer, and mom, Cibo Meals helps get so many things I desire out of food AND community. It’s convenient AND sustainable?!? I get all that, while supporting my neighbor in in their local woman-owned business. Good food and interdependence are where it’s at!

Katie T.H.

My family loves Emily and Cibo meals. We are not vegetarian, but her vegetarian homemade meals are tasty and come with thoughtful dressings, sides and protein recommendations. We get them almost every week because they’re so convenient.

Carly W.

We order Cibo Meals regularly. Love how sustainable the business model is with reusable bags, jars etc. There’s hardly any waste if any at all. All the meal options are vegetarian and we love them — and we aren’t even vegetarians! You could easily add meat to any of the dishes, but we prefer them just as they come. There is always something new and delicious that I would never think to cook myself. Our toddler even likes it too (win!!)
