Weeknight Rescue // August 2019 // Week 31

Welcome to the weekend, everyone! We’ve got some goodness on tap this week, including what I think of as the original veggie burger and a healthy alternative to store-bought strawberry milk. Bon appetit.

PESTO PORTABELLO BURGERS

I’ve been making these for years and consider them the O.G. of veggie burgers. Because portabellos are swapped in for meat, the burgers are lighter but still plenty juicy (especially when topped with basil pesto and Mozzarella). If you do these on the grill, toss sliced zucchini and peppers on there for a veggie side. Alternatively, this kale is an easy fix.

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 usually serve it with brown rice and veggies done in a quick stir fry. If you’re pressed for time, pick up a package of heat and serve brown rice from the freezer section of the market. .

QUINOA TABBOULEH

Quinoa Tabbouleh is a super nutritious and flavorful dish that’s best in the summer, when tomatoes and cucumbers are at their best. Since it’s on the lighter side, add chick peas for a bit more protein and heft. Make this Fattoush Salad to round out your Middle Eastern-inspired supper.

DARK CHOCOLATE MUESLI

I made a batch of this muesli recently and it didn’t last long in the pantry! It’s tasty straight up and even better topped with berries. Pour on the milk or try it with tangy kefir for a dose of probiotics.

STRAWBERRY MILK

Here’s something cold and creamy without the artificial ingredients and excessive sugar in store-bought pink milk. It takes two minutes to make and is excellent any time of day. Not just for kids, either!
