September 5 to 9, 2022: What to Cook This Week

On the menu this week are five simple dinner ideas for a delicious start to September. From braised cabbage to sheet-pan shrimp, there’s something for everyone in this week’s selection of recipes.

Monday: Harvest Vegetable Naan Bread

It’s harvest season, so given that you’re probably swimming in excess zucchini, eggplant and cherry tomatoes from the garden, make this perfect no-cook recipe that’s a cross between an open-faced sandwich and pizza!

Tuesday: Broccoli Carbonara

Pasta always comes together in a flash on busy weeknights. This recipe is especially efficient because you can boil the rigatoni and the broccoli together in the same pot of water.

Wednesday: Braised Cabbage with Sausage and Sweet Potato

Cabbage with sausage is a classic combination, and the addition of sweet potato brings some sweetness and starchiness to it. This one-pot recipe is the perfect meal for a simple weeknight.

Thursday: Chicken Drumsticks with Tomatoes and Lentils

Looking for a complete and satisfying meal? Just simmer all the ingredients together in a Dutch oven and enjoy. The tomatoes and squash pair wonderfully with the lentils and chicken.

Friday: Sheet-Pan Shrimp, Black Beans and Chorizo

Who can resist sheet-pan recipes that are quick, easy...and avoid piles of dirty dishes after dinner. This dish is particularly fun to eat, thanks to its bright colours and flavours. The kids’ll simply adore it!
