Welcome to Weeknight Rescue. Hope this helps you get your dinner on this week! The shopping list is at the very bottom.

MISO AND GINGER GLAZED SALMON

Not a lot of ingredients, super flavorful, and so very good for you. Serve with brown basmati or jasmine rice and a simple veggie side. I’m partial to bok choy for this salmon (I sometimes do a version of this recipe, leaving out the tofu and pork, since you’ll be serving it as a side). 


LOADED SWEET POTATO NACHOS

Yes, I’m giving you permission to eat nachos for dinner. They’re built on a bed of sweet potatoes, after all. Pair with this Everyday Mexican Slaw and you have a veggie-packed supper that’s perfect for celebrating Cinco de Mayo. 


SLOW COOKER (or Instant Pot) BALSAMIC CHICKEN WITH TOMATOES AND CHARD 

Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken and TomatoesMake this simple Balsamic Chicken and Tomatoes in either the slow cooker or the Instant Pot, your choice.  It’s packed with leafy greens and served over pasta or grains, which makes it a complete meal in one. Top with Parmesan cheese, and if you happen to have a bottle of red wine around, pour yourself a glass.  


HONEY STEWED STRAWBERRY RHUBARB COMPOTE

 

This is a spring staple in our house whereby tangy rhubarb gets cooked down with fresh strawberries into a compote that is excellent spooned over yogurt or spread on breakfast toast. Make a batch and watch it disappear.  


BEST AVOCADO TOAST WITH SOFT EGG

I got hooked on this last summer and it’s still my favorite way to do avocado toast. It’s filling for breakfast, lunch, or even a light supper with a salad on the side. You’ll find my foolproof method for a soft cooked egg in the recipe.
