You don't need to press the tofu to drain the water for this crazy-flavorful meatless Monday recipe; a slow pan-fry achieves the same effect and gets the exterior extra crispy. For a completely vegetarian dish, swap the fish sauce for soy sauce or the liquid from soaked dried porcini mushrooms.
These poke-inspired fish tacos are an incredibly delicious, not to mention healthy, way to make a Tuesday night feel like something special. A sweet and spicy fresh pineapple salsa brings brightness to perfectly balance the rich seared tuna and briny seaweed salad. Serve these tacos up with a simple avocado salad for a complete, vibrant plate.
This intensely flavorful chicken soup is deliciously comforting, but isn't about to leave you feeling heavy. This speedy, streamlined take on traditional pho is an excellent option for pho beginners, as well as anyone in a humpday evening hurry.

This salad is a great use for cold, leftover steak, but if beef isn't you're go-to, feel free to top your vibrant bed of veggies with shredded chicken, sliced tuna, or soft boiled eggs. This main dish salad is as versatile as it is tasty, so tweak it to suit your tastes.

Nothing says TGIF like a platter of crispy, cheesy, bursting-with-flavor nachos. Building these loaded (and we do mean loaded) nachos on a foil-lined pan means instant cleanup: Bring the pan right to the table after broiling, and discard the foil after dinner. And the whole family will love eating straight from the communal nacho feast.
