Weeknight Rescue // March 2021 // Week 12

wild blueberry balsamic sheet pan chicken

We’ve got an eclectic line-up this week that includes a mix of blog mainstays and recent additions. Also included? Nachos for dinner. What’s not to love! Have a great week.

Healthy Spinach and Feta 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 pull together (no washing, stemming, or cooking the spinach in advance). Leftovers are terrific the next day reheated in the oven.

Chicken, Orange, and Avocado Salad with Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

A main dish supper that makes the most of the end of citrus season. You can serve this tossed or deconstructed-style, with the orange, avocado, chicken, and greens arranged on a plate. On the side? Crusty bread for sopping up any dressing that pools on your plate.

Layered Lentil Nachos

Lentil Nachos

Who said nachos can’t qualify as supper? This spin on the popular snack food works good ingredients into the mix, including lentils, salsa, two kinds of cheese, blue corn tortilla chips, and a few other goodies. Add a crunchy slaw or vegetable crudité on the side and call it dinner.

Wild Blueberry Balsamic Sheet Pan Chicken

This is always a crowd pleaser in my house. The combination of wild blueberries and balsamic vinegar here pairs perfectly with the chicken and sweet potatoes. It’s one-dish dinner with very little clean up. Make the cabbage recipe below if you’re looking for another veggie side.

Instant Pot Korean-Style Beef Tacos

This Korean-style beef is done in the Instant Pot until fork tender, piled onto warm tortillas, and topped with crunchy slaw. I like to add a simple salad of sliced cucumbers and radishes with a splash of seasoned rice vinegar to serve on the side.

Roasted Cabbage Wedges with Miso Ginger Scallion Butter

If you’re looking for a nourishing vegetable side dish for your dinner table, this Mom’s Kitchen Handbook newcomer is well worth exploring. It’s easy enough to whip up as part of a light lunch, too.

Slow Cooker French Toast

This is a good way to get everyone fed at breakfast, with leftovers for the next day. Get it going early in the morning and it will be ready by the time everyone rouses. I like to serve it with Greek yogurt, maple syrup, and seasonal fruits.
