Roasted Maple Dijon Salmon
A #sheetpansupper that transitions us from winter (butternut squash!) to spring (asparagus!). This One Pan Roasted Maple Dijon Salmon is on the table in under 45 minutes start to finish, or 35 minutes if you prep the vegetables ahead. And if you haven’t tried this marinade combo on salmon, you haven’t lived.
Weeknight Wonton Soup
The easiest Weeknight Wonton Soup! Faster and more satisfying than take-out, thanks to frozen potstickers. This soup is delicious with pork potstickers, but you won’t hear complaints using chicken, shrimp or vegetable. And, like most soups, this is completely open to adapting to whatever lurks in your vegetable drawer. I see you, wilting spinach.
Weeknight Channa Masala
This super fast and filling Channa (Chickpea) Masala is a meatless, one pan wonder and feels like a giant bear hug at the end of a very long day – assuming the hug is from someone you like – thanks to the garam masala, an Indian spice blend that adds big flavor in little time.
Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps
These Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps were made for weeknights. Plus, it gives kids the OK to eat with their hands. (Or, keep things neater by serving the filling in bowls atop shredded lettuce.) Prep the vegetables and sauce 3 to 4 days in advance and this comes together in under 15 minutes on swim practice […]
Moroccan Pork Tenderloin & Carrots
This Moroccan Pork Tenderloin is the love child of my favorite cooking methods for flavor (roasting) and sanity (one pan). The spice rub is warm and exotic, but not enough to overwhelm kiddo tastebuds. Baby carrots work in a pinch. Serve as-is, or stretch it out with couscous and a simple salad.
Butternut Squash Red Lentil Soup
Brace yourself for how simple and delicious this Butternut Squash Red Lentil Soup is. It’s creamy and rich without a drop of dairy, and filling thanks to protein from the lentils and fiber from the squash. Also, fast. Red lentils cook in a fraction of the time compared to black, green, or brown. Buy pre-chopped […]
Chili Spiced Sweet Potatoes
Roasted sweet potatoes, whether kept whole, wedged, or cubed, are perfect make ahead side dishes for weeknight meals. Unlike white potatoes, which can become dry and mealy after chilling, sweet potatoes reheat like a dream and stay ultra creamy and tender. These Chili Spiced Sweet Potatoes are great as-is alongside any protein and green vegetable, […]
One Pan Salmon with Spinach and Artichokes
This One Pan Salmon with Spinach and Artichokes meal is an easy way to sneak some dark green leaves onto your family’s plates. Frozen spinach is transformed with a simple combo of garlic, fire-roasted tomatoes and artichoke hearts. Topped with simple seared salmon, this dinner is ready in 20 minutes, and requires only 1 pan and […]
Warm Kale Caesar Salad
Nothing beats the crispness of a big romaine lettuce Caesar salad. But when the temps drop and snow falls, this warm, sautéed kale version is a welcome alternative to the classic. Warm Kale Caesar Salad is a great way to use up leftover chicken or that wilting bunch of kale beckoning you from the veg […]
Upside-down Shepherd’s Pie
Traditional Shepherd’s pie involves a casserole dish, layering, and baking, three time consuming steps that don’t typically jive with most weeknight routines. Try this deconstructed Upside-down Shepherd’s Pie version, serving the filling atop creamy mashed sweet potatoes. You may never eat it the “other” way again.
Creamy Tomato Soup (Dairy-Free)
This Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Soup is reminiscent of the old school condensed variety (but no judgements here because there is something nostalgic about tomato soup from a can) but way better for you. It’s rich and creamy without a drop of dairy (thanks to butternut squash), and insanely simple. After work, whir it up […]
Cuban Black Beans
Cuban Black Beans are the perfect accompaniment to beef, chicken, or pork but are also hearty and delicious enough to stand all on their own. Paired with rice, they’re the ultimate meatless weeknight meal. Prep the vegetables and steam the rice over the weekend and this comes together in under 20 minutes on your busiest […]
