ASIAN-STYLE PORK IN LETTUCE CUPS
Pork and Lettuce Wraps
These lettuce cups are like little, very fresh-tasting Vietnamese-style tacos with a killer ginger lime dressing to finish. Since they’re pretty light on the appetite, you might want to get some carbs on the table, such as steamed brown basmati rice or a favorite Asian noodle tossed with soy sauce, sesame oil, and sliced scallion. A plate of fresh, sliced pineapple would be a suitable side or dessert as well. 

FARRO CAKES WITH LEMON DILL YOGURT

Farro Cakes with yogurt

Farro, a hearty grain with Italian roots, is the foundation for these vegetarian patties that pair with a tangy lemon dill yogurt sauce. Double the recipe and refrigerate (or freeze) the extra patties for lunches or even brunch. I’d be inclined to serve these with an arugula salad with this vinaigrette or Kale Salad Kids Love. 

CHICKEN KEBAB WRAPS

Grilled Chicken Kebab Wraps - Mom's Kitchen Handbook

Grilling season is a ways off, but there’s no reason we can’t play pretend with these flavor-packed chicken kebabs. The chicken gets threaded onto skewers and can be done under a broiler instead of a barbecue. The Middle Eastern flavors of the dish are a nice match for this Quinoa Tabbouleh. 

INSTANT POT CRUSTLESS QUICHE
Instant Pot Quiche

The Instant Pot makes a tender crustless veggie quiche. It can serve multiple uses throughout the week, from breakfast, to lunch, to even a simple supper. Sliced fruit and a salad on the side completes the meal. 

DARK CHOCOLATE SUPERFOOD BARK

Chocolate Superfood Bark

Buy the darkest bittersweet chocolate you can find, stir creamy cashew butter into it, and scatter seeds on top. That’s it. It’s a favorite fix for a chocolate craving that delivers nutrients in the mix. Make a batch to stow in the fridge for embellishing school lunches or to pair with a cup of afternoon tea.
