August 30 to September 3, 2021: 30-Minute Recipes to Cook This Week!

With summer slowly winding down and the daily grind resuming, quick and easy recipes will be essential for the busy weeknights ahead. For this week’s menu, we’ve got meal ideas that’ll be on the dinner table in 30 minutes or less!

Monday: Grilled Zucchini Toasts with Tomato, Strawberry and Mint Salad

Eat the season with this fresh and simple meal. With the last of your summer strawberries, along with zucchini and tomatoes straight from your garden, this tasty meal comes together in a flash!

Tuesday: Quick Chicken and Couscous

Of course this recipe is quick: It’s in its name! Hearty and tasty, it’s a dinner the whole family will enjoy. And it tastes great for lunch the next day. Simply pop it in an insulated container and go.

Wednesday: Seared Trout and Zucchini Salad with Pumpkin Seeds

How can something this beautiful-looking take only 25 minutes to make? All it takes is a quick sear in a skillet for the salmon, chopping the veggies is a breeze (especially when you spiralize the zucchini!), and then you sprinkle on some pepitas and a drizzle of Sriracha.

Thursday: Broccoli Carbonara

Pasta is often a weeknight saviour because of how fast a recipe can come together. We especially love this recipe because we can boil the rigatoni and the broccoli in the same pot of water. Efficient!

Friday: Top Sirloin Steak with Bell Peppers and Avocado Salsa

Summer is still here, so grilled meat can still be enjoyed for a few more weeks! But there’s no need to preheat a grill; a trusty grill pan will do just fine. Served with bell peppers and creamy polenta, it’s the perfect way to end the week.
