January 10 to 14, 2022: 5 Feel-Good Recipes to Enjoy This Week

With remote work still ongoing and the children at home for a little while longer, we know that this week, you need the healing power of food more than ever! The five recipes below will not only satiate your hunger but will provide a dose of comfort, too.

Monday: Black Bean Vegetarian Chili

On this cold, cold Monday, only a hearty chili will help ease the stress of the start of the workweek. So tonight, try this vegetarian chili brimming with beans, vegetables and spices. And don’t forget a side of cornbread.

Tuesday: Tofu and Veal Meatloaves with Barbecue Sauce

Meatloaf is perfect for when you want to enjoy something cozy and comforting, but it’s usually reserved for weekends given its lengthy cooking time. So we’ve come up with this weeknight-friendly version by baking individual portions in a muffin pan. You’re welcome!

Wednesday: Creamy Chicken and Tarragon Soup

Chicken soup is the ultimate in winter comfort foods, but instead of the classic noodle version (whether homemade or the canned stuff), try this recipe with potatoes and a rich, velvety broth instead. It’s sure to become your new favourite.

Thursday: Pork Cutlets with Creamy Mustard Sauce

Not only is this pork dish cozy and delicious, it will be on the table in under 30 minutes. One bite and we promise that you will be in heaven thanks to the creamy, silky mustard sauce. Enjoy with a side of veggies and mashed potatoes, as well as a glass of wine, and dinner will surely feel like something special.

Friday: Sloppy Joes

Whether you have kids in the home or not, a classic sloppy Joe is hard to resist. Tangy, messy, saucy… In short, it’s the only way to cap off your Friday. (Be sure to have some napkins handy!)
