Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of February 20th
Use a thick, sturdy slice of bread for this meatless Monday sandwich base. A quick red pepper sauce with olives and vinegar adds dimension to each bite. Fried egg and hummus provide protein for a filling, inexpensive and healthy meal.
Forget the layered skillet approach and use this faster method instead. Serve a veggie and beef mixture over a large bed of creamy mashed potatoes. We used frozen mashed potatoes and peas to cut down on prep time. It doesn't get much easier or more satisfying than this!
Quinoa is great because it cooks within the soup, unlike other grains that require cooking seperately. Shred a rotisserie chicken breast and this soup is ready in no time. Use whatever frozen vegetables you have on hand, we just recommend stirring in a splash of lemon juice for brightness right before serving.
Use a sheet pan to make a restaurant-worthy dinner in just 40 minutes. This recipe serves perfectly roasted pork chops over vegetables flavored with a sour cream, Dijon mustard, honey, and thyme mixture.
Mexican chorizo provides rich flavor that ground beef can't provide alone. Make your own crema by combining sour cream, avocado, buttermilk, and lime juice in a food processor. The result is a light and creamy topping that seamlessly complements the crunchiness of freshly fried tortillas.
Give your average cereal a little somethin' somethin' by adding sliced banana and almonds and warm almond butter. The extra step is all that it takes to start your day the right way.
