Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of April 27th
Embrace bold international flavors in this week's meal plan. These easy, delicious veggie bowls can be on your table in less time than it takes to drive to the local taco joint.
Who says you can't do date night on a Tuesday? This elegant entree is perfectly portioned to serve two. If you can't find lamb loin chops, you can substitute 2 (4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks.
A sweet-tangy-spicy glaze of Asian pantry staples caramelizes beautifully under the broiler. To complete the meal, serve with jasmine rice tossed with sliced green onions and lime rind strips.
If you have trouble finding shiitake mushrooms, use whatever 'shrooms you have on hand. Sliced creminis would work equally well for this saucy noodle bowl.
Sweet shrimp is ideal for spicy dishes like this. If you want just a light lick of heat, use 1/4 teaspoon red pepper. If you prefer more fire, go for 1/2 teaspoon (or more).
Don't knock it 'til you try it. This recipe is a great way to use up leftover tahini from making a batch of hummus.
