Weeknight Rescue // June 2020 // Week 22

Yogurt-Marinated Grilled Chicken

We’re rolling into another weekend, friends, and I’ve got a menu to carry you through. It includes the broccoli recipe I posted earlier this week. My sister made it last night and texted rave reviews. I hope you like it, too.

Speaking of broccoli, I’m doing a demo of my go-to method for roasting vegetables with my favorite Lemon Tahini Dressing on Instagram tomorrow. Join me!

BAJA-STYLE SHRIMP TACOS WITH CHIPOTLE LIME CREMA

Baja Shrimp Taco Recipe

The star of this recipe is the Chipotle Lime Crema that gets slathered on before piling on the rest of the goodies. The recipe includes a crunchy slaw, but you may want to warm up homemade or canned pinto or black beans and embellish with a big spoonful of Mexican salsa.

ARUGULA QUINOA SALAD WITH AVOCADO & BACON

This salad is super nourishing and works great for lunch or a light supper. It features gluten-free, protein-rich quinoa, fresh (or frozen) corn, bacon, arugula and avocado with a quick homemade dressing to top it off.

4-INGREDIENT SWEET POTATO ENCHILADAS

You can’t get much more simple than this recipe (with the exception of my 2-ingredient black bean soup). With just four ingredients, it’s a snap to make and even your veggie-phobic family members might give it a thumbs up.

CILANTRO LIME YOGURT-MARINATED CHICKEN

Now that we’re into grilling season, this is the time to make this mega flavorful chicken. Pair it with your favorite grain and a veggie side dish or toss chick peas with diced cucumber, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, a dash of cumin, and crumbled feta.

TOMATO SOUP & WAFFLE IRON GRILLED CHEESE

This is good, cozy comfort food. The recipe makes just enough soup for four bowls, but feel free to double it for lunches the next day.

ROASTED BROCCOLI WITH TAHINI, HAZELNUTS, AND RAISINS

This one is new on the blog and makes a wonderful side dish to any meal. The combination of tahini, hazelnuts, raisins, capers and herbs creates tons of flavor.

COCOA DUSTED ALMONDS

An easy way to satisfy your sweet fix. Almonds get roasted until crunchy and then tossed with cocoa powder and confectioners’ sugar. Enjoy them for your afternoon chocolate fix.
