Weeknight Rescue//2022//Week 10

I built this week’s meal plan around the One Good Thing challenge for this month: filling half the plate with fruits and vegetables. Hopefully this will spark some ideas on how to pack your plate with plenty of produce. Enjoy!

BAJA STYLE SHRIMP TACOS

Baja Shrimp Taco Recipe

When it comes to these tacos, it’s all about the Chipotle Lime Crema that gets slathered on before piling on the rest of the goodies. The recipe also includes a crunchy slaw, which you can double so you have extra on the side.  For a side dish, warm up homemade or canned pinto or black beans and embellish with a big spoonful of Mexican salsa. Add fresh cut pineapple for dessert.  

Baby Bok Choy with Pork and Tofu

A longtime blog favorite, this is savory, sweet, and a little bit spicy. Serve over cooked brown rice and it’s a complete meal.  Need a side? Sliced cucumbers and radishes doused with rice vinegar, a pinch of sugar, and a crack of black pepper will do. 

EASY CHICKEN PAILLARD

Have dinner on the table in a snap. This no-fuss meal looks sort of fancy, but is a lot lighter than its more traditional twin. Add roasted veggies, a simple grain dish, or a tossed salad to fill out your plate. IF you have any leftovers, lunch the next day will be equally delicious.

TURKEY CHILI STUFFED POTATOES

The combination of tender sweet potatoes with just-so-spicy turkey chili is a good one. It’s a one-dish meal that’s nourishing and flavorful.

BROTHY CHICKPEAS WITH OLIVE OIL GARLIC CROUTONS

These braised chickpeas are a new personal favorite. They taste like comfort in a bowl, lapped in a flavorful broth, topped with crunchy garlic croutons, and finished with a drizzle of olive oil. Nourishing and delicious.

BRAIN-BOOSTING BLUEBERRY SMOOTHIE

Here’s a way to wake up and feed your body and brain. It also happens to be very tasty, too.

SHORTCUT SWEET POTATO HUMMUS

If you make the Chili-Topped Sweet Potatoes, roast an extra one to blend into a creamy dip that relies on prepared hummus for the recipe. It’s great as an afternoon snack or packed into lunches along with crunchy vegetables for dipping.
