Weeknight Rescue // April 2019 // Week 17

Happy weekend everyone! Hope you are enjoying some downtime. Here’s what’s on tap for Weeknight Rescue. As always, the shopping list is at the bottom of the page. 

UMAMI CHICKEN

“Umami” because this chicken is such a flavor bomb. It’s chicken done adobo style that you can have bubbling on the stove in a matter of minutes. I always serve it with a side of brown rice and either stir-fried veggies or bok choy. If you’re pressed for time, pick up a package of heat and serve brown rice from the freezer section of the market. 

FALAFEL BURGERS WITH CREAMY YOGURT SAUCE

Master the falafel one night and enjoy it all week long. Store leftover burgers refrigerated for up to 5 days, or frozen in an airtight container or plastic bag. They’re excellent with a tangy yogurt sauce and whatever side salad strikes your fancy.

SPRING FARRO RISOTTO

Asparagus and peas are in season and this is a good one to make them shine. It’s a no-stir, no-fuss oven risotto done with farro instead of the traditional arborio rice. You prep the asparagus and shell the peas ahead of time, so it’s easier to pull together at the dinner hour. If you are really short on time, swap in frozen peas instead.

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.

BUNNY RABBIT ROLLS

These rolls include a vari­ety of tastes and textures: crunchiness from the bell pepper, cucumber, carrots, and sunflower seeds, and creaminess thanks to a smear of cream cheese. Easy to pack and great for eating on the go. Switch things up by adding shredded apple or a few avocado slices. Experiment and customize your ideal roll, or set up an ingredient bar and let your kids build their own.

I have tried the umami chicken and risotto so far, both are wins! I can’t wait for the burgers and bunny wraps! It was a great change to the meals I can figure out on my own and put me back on track from eating out. My son willingly ate asparagus! Thank you!
