Easy Disney Restaurant Meals to Create at Home?

I love to cook, but on weekdays, things have to be fast and somewhat healthy. Many of our favorite meals in regular rotation are inspired by our favorite Disney meals. Well, we know we can't create California Grill's Oak Fired Pork with Zinfandel Mushroom Glaze every night, but we can make . . .

The Plaza's Hummus and Veggie Sandwich
LTT's Colony Salad with grilled chicken, apples, pecans and smoked cheddar.
'Ohana's green beans (from the circa 2003-ish menu) as a side dish with grilled shrimp or chicken

Do you make any Disney inspired meals on a regular basis?

Subscribing to this! We're hoping to get inspired on our next Disney trip. I do make Veiled Maiden (from the Norway pavilion) a lot at home, but it was a family recipe that my grandmother taught me long before we ever went to Disney.

Does anyone know if it's possible to get recipes or ingredients for a particular dish from the restaurant staff, or do they consider it a proprietary secret?

It depends on the restaurant and what the item is, I think. Most restaurants have been very willing to share recipes. The problem is, they are so scaled up (making 6 cakes or a gallon of salad dressing) that they just give you the ingredients and method and no proportions. Boma and Jiko will ask for your email address and email you scaled down versions.

the two i've made the most often are the macadamia nut crust chicken with papaya marmalade and mashed potatoes with sho yu cream sauce from wolfgang pucks. the second is actually an appetizer at citricos but we put it ove wheat pasta and make it a main course. it's the sauteed shrimp with lemon, feta, white wine, and tomatoes. this ones really fast.

The recipes in this thread mostly come from official Disney sources:

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1575103

In the index to that thread, I think the ones that are not official are marked as "similar only":

Would LOVE the macadamia nut chicken recipe!! We love it, and my DMIL is especially crazy about it!

At that California Grill I always order the grilled pork tenderloin with goat cheese polenta.. I've tried making it a few times and it's been good, but nowhere near as good as CG!

Thanks for posting the link to the recipe index--I had no idea that thread existed! I can't wait to try some of those recipes--I think I'll make school bread first...yum!

I have made the Cheddar Cheese Soup from LeCellier - it was good but didn't taste the same (maybe I have to make it then wait 180 days to eat it)
One recipe that is in my regular rotation is the BBQ sauce from Flame Tree.

Thanks, guys. I do love making Le Cellier cheese soup. I do that probably twice a year in the fall/winter time.

I have a lot of WDW cookbooks- 6 I think. I just rarely have the time to make some of the more complicated dishes. I'd love to make the AP Smoky Portobello Soup sometime!

I am checking out that macadamia nut chicken recipe to see if it is in that thread.
