Weeknight Meal Planner: 03/12/18
Good Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches don't have to result from hours over the grill. Our chicken sandwich starts with a rotisserie chicken and super easy homemade barbecue sauce. This sandwich is the perfect solution for those busy weeknights.
A quick Italian meal of Whole-Wheat Pasta with Kale and Roast Chicken doesn’t get much more nutritious than this! Whole-wheat pasta lend itself to extra fiber and good carbs; roasted chicken adds lean protein; and kale is one of the Superfoods of the moment.
Salty Italian bacon and fresh asparagus make this crisp-chewy flatbread unforgettable. Use a mandoline to slice the asparagus, or just cut it into 2-inch pieces.
Russets aren't the only spuds worth stuffing. Smoke and heat, achieved with chili powder and ground red pepper, work particularly well with sweet potatoes. The melted cheese on top pulls all the flavors together and seals in the stuffed components.
Tahini is a paste made of ground sesame seeds and it’s the ingredient that gives hummus its distinct toasty flavor. Tahini is an incredibly versatile ingredient lends a rich nuttiness wherever it goes—which is why we love it as the base for this vibrant, herb-based sauce. Balanced with lemon juice and bright herbaceous flavors, tahini shines in this addictive, bright-green condiment you’ll find yourself coming back to again and again (with a spoon in hand). The Green Tahini Sauce pairs exceptionally well with fish, and we especially love it with flakey pan-seared cod. While not technically “necessary” basting the fish with butter as it finishes cooking adds another layer of subtle richness. Plated with a generous dollop of the green sauce, this simple pan-cooked cod finds its perfect match in the sauce’s velvety texture and dynamic flavor profile.
Floral honey, fresh herbs, and verdant green-tea powder make for an effervescent springtime sipper.
