Weeknight Rescue // February 2023 // Week 6

coconut curry red lentil soup

The line up for this week includes a few recipes I haven’t thought about in a while, including the Spinach and Feta Filo Pie, which is a personal favorite. I’m also a big fan of the Tahini Almond Butter Cookies, which you can pull together in a matter of minutes. If you’ve got Super Bowl meal planning on the brain, you may want to check out these healthyish game day eats.

Spinach and Feta Filo Pie

I’m crazy about this spinach pie! It’s wholesome and tasty. The recipe calls for frozen spinach, which is one of the reasons it’s relatively easy to assemble (no washing, stemming, or cooking the spinach in advance). Leftovers are terrific the next day reheated in the oven.

Red Lentil Coconut Curry Soup

Definitely one of my top soups of all time, this is both filling and incredibly nourishing. If you’ve got homemade chicken or veggie brought on hand, pull it out. There is nothing like homemade stock for making a terrific pot of soup!

Easy Pork Chops with Apples

Easy pork chops with apples and maple mustard sauce

This is simple comfort cooking and doesn’t call for anything fancy. The chops are accompanied by a tangy sour cream mustard sauce that is kind of a game changer for the dish. If you don’t have apples, use figs, pears, or serve with a bowl of applesauce.

Hanoi Chicken Banh Mi

Make sandwich night a little more interesting with flavor-packed banh miIt’s a Vietnamese-style sandwich made with marinated chicken, pickled vegetables on a crusty baguette. If you can, make the vegetables ahead of time, so it’s easier to pull everything together come dinnertime.  

Delicata Squash Tacos

Delicata squash is tender, nutritious, and terrific in a taco. Slice them thin, roast, and then pile onto corn tortillas with pickled onions and other favorite taco fixings.

Super Green Smoothies

Green Smoothie with Orange, spinach and hemp seeds

This smoothie is a tasty way to set your day off on the right foot. It’s packed with nutrient-rich fruits and veggies and so tasty, it goes down easy.    

Tahini Almond Butter Chocolate-Dipped Cookies

Healthy Chocolate Tahini Cookies

These wholesome cookies are one of my favorites on the site. They take minutes to make and can be done with or without the chocolate dip. Feel free to swap in peanut butter or another nut or seed butter for tahini.

I would probably find a recipe specifically developed using GF flour. Check out the website Bojon Gourmet. She’s a pro.
