Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of May 11th
We substituted protein-rich edamame for corn in this fast succotash, a great side that would also be lovely with simply baked fish or grilled chicken.
Roasted baby potatoes
Whole-wheat pasta holds up well in this cheesy, saucy pasta bake. Pair it with a green salad for a well-rounded family meal.
Spinach, Palm, and Pine Nut Salad
You may find a few salmon options at the counter; go for sustainable farmed Atlantic salmon, U.S. farmed coho, or wild Alaskan salmon. Serve over a bed of prepared farro.
Red bell peppers are the star vegetable in this stir-fry, a crisp, sweet counterpoint to the serrano chile heat. Use any vegetables you like, but keep it simple; one or two vegetables, plus the basil and chicken, are all you need.
Cashew and Green Onion Bulgur
Get the weekend off to a good start with this wallet-friendly spin on lobster rolls. Buttering and toasting the rolls adds tons of rich flavor; don't be tempted to skip that step.
Serve as a special dessert, or divide this fruity shake into smaller portions for a cool and creamy afternoon treat.
