Weeknight Rescue // February 2019 // Week 5

Hope you all are staying warm this weekend. We’ve got lots of cozy eats to help you out, including a favorite for game day. Find the printable shopping list down at the bottom of the page. 

CREAMY CARROT MAC AND CHEESE

Creamy carrots blend seamlessly into this mac and cheese thanks to their mild sweetness and the fact that they’re the same color as Cheddar cheese. I usually do up a salad with this balsamic vinaigrette and/or cooked broccoli.

BEST SLOW COOKER POT ROAST WITH VEGETABLES

To me, pot roast is the very definition of cold weather cooking. It’s hearty and soul satisfying. I found the slow cooker does a terrific job with pot roast, but you can also roast it in the oven (instructions for that are in the recipe headnote). 

SLOW COOKER INDIAN TACOS

Get lentils going in your slow cooker with Indian spices and you’ve got a mega nourishing filling for a twist on traditional tacos. Pile the lentils onto corn or flour tortillas and finish with yogurt, cilantro, and if you have some on hand, a favorite Indian chutney.


LIGHTER GREEN GODDESS DRESSING

Make a batch of this dressing to add a splash of brightness to salads or drizzled over roasted vegetables. It’s also good to send in school lunches with crunchy vegetables. 

LIGHTER ARTICHOKE CAULIFLOWER DIP 

If watching the Super Bowl is on your weekend agenda, this makes good company for snacking. It’s a lighter spin on traditional artichoke dip with heaps of cauliflower worked into the mix.
