Weeknight Rescue // May 2020 // Week 20

This week’s menu hints that we’re heading into warmer weather and features one of my favorite ways to do a burger. There’s something for everyone here, including plenty of flexible and comforting options.

Also, I’m making my Sheet Pan Nachos over on QuaranTeen cooking tomorrow on Instagram. Join me!

PAN-SEARED SALMON WITH MANGO SALSA & AVOCADO

I’ve been seeing gorgeous mangoes the past few times I’ve been to the market, so figured this recipe might come in handy. It’s loaded with delicious antioxidant-rich ingredients and can be ready in 30 minutes. The salmon gets crisp in a pan while you stir together a fresh, bright salsa.

SHAKSHUKA WITH SWISS CHARD

Healthy Shakshuka

A North African-inspired egg dish, this recipe makes a great vegetarian dinner that doubles as a lunch leftover. It’s a one-dish supper that I like to serve with pita, lavash, or a crusty loaf of bread. A spoonful of Greek yogurt on the side makes a nice addition as well. 

INSTANT POT RICE & VEGETABLE SOUP

Instant Pot Rice and Vegetable Soup

This is comfort in a bowl. While the recipe calls for an Instant Pot, it can also be made on the stove (with a little more time and may require more broth). Easily elevate it with protein-rich options like chick peas or cooked chicken.

SHEET PAN CHICKEN DINNER

A one-pan nutritious and complete meal that requires minimal clean-up. Potatoes, Brussels, and chicken all cook at about the same rate, give or take, so it makes meal prep easy. Feel free to substitute sweet potatoes or other sturdy vegetables if that’s what you have on hand.

BEEF AND MUSHROOM BLENDED BURGER

This healthier spin on standard burgers come together pretty quickly and can be cooked on the grill or stoveop. Need a side dish? These sweet potatoes are an excellent match for the burger.

EASY EVERYDAY VINAIGRETTE

Shake a jar of this simple vinaigrette to stash in the fridge for quick salads. Double or triple the recipe if you’ve got salads planned all week long to make meals a breeze.

HEALTHIER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

Decadent and super satisfying cookies with a healthier twist. The ingredients include whole wheat flour, oat and almond flour, a little less sugar, and dark chocolate chips. Still a cookie, for sugar, just a bit better for you.
