It’s time to start thinking about your meal plan for next week. From a healthy twist on burgers to breakfast-for-dinner burritos for dinner, we’ve got five weeknight dinners that will get you through the week ahead. So grab a pen, make your shopping list, and stock up before the weekend’s over. And if it’s easier for you to do that from your inbox, be sure to sign up for our weekly meal plan emails.
If you’ve never made cauliflower rice — or, in this case, cauliflower couscous — before, this recipe for Curried Cauliflower Couscous with Chickpeas and Chard at A Sweet Spoonful Prep is the perfect place to start. Chard is in season right now and one of my kids’ favorite greens, so you can try it too. Given that this preps in 20 and cooks in only 15 minutes more, there’s no reason not to. Plus, easy #MeatlessMonday.
I love this simple recipe for Chile con Queso Stuffed Peppers at Hungry Food Love. It takes only seven ingredients — two of which are cheese (yum) — to make this kid-friendly meal. In fact, it’s so easy that you might want to make homemade taco seasoning mix for even brighter flavor.
Burgers are delicious, but oof, I can’t go there every week. Instead, to keep it healthier, I’m going to whip up these genius Blackened Fish Burgers at Oh, Sweet Basil. Lean, but bursting with flavor thanks to a spice rub and sriracha mayo, this will hit the spot — and make me feel less guilty about eating fries on the site. Right?
Finding kid-friendly asparagus recipes can be a challenge, which is why I’m psyched about this Penne with Roasted Asparagus and Balsamic Butter at Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. First off, pasta. Then, balsamic vinegar and butter? It’s like the holy trinity of food for my kids. My prediction is that they’ll gobble it so fast, they won’t even notice the asparagus going down.
Big Brunch Enchiladas | Pati Jinich
Breakfast for dinner is a favorite Friday night meal in my house, and this week is all about these amazing looking Big Brunch Enchiladas that we found while rounding up our favorite Mexican food blogs. Tortillas stuffed with scrambled eggs and covered in a black bean sauce and crumbled chorizo? So good that I might have to make enough for Saturday morning too.
