This week’s menu was compiled based on the products featured in this week’s IGA Quebec flyer. You can also find the five recipes on the TADA! app to help simplify meal planning and stay on budget.
Monday: Pork Roast with Lemon and Garlic
Fall equals comfort, and what could be more inviting than an aromatic roast at the centre of the dinner table? Don’t let this fancy-looking dish fool you; while it takes slightly longer than a usual weeknight dish, it will still be ready in a fairly reasonable amount of time.
Tuesday: Chicken Drumsticks with Tomatoes and Lentils
Place chicken drumsticks, seasonal cubed butternut squash, tomatoes and lentils in a Dutch oven and let simmer for an hour. You’re then left with a warm and comforting meal that goes great with bread, or served over pasta or rice.
Wednesday: Seared Trout and Zucchini Salad with Pumpkin Seeds
This fish and vegetable dish is simple and delicious. The texture of the pumpkin seeds adds a satisfying crunch. And with a peppy mayonnaise that adds just enough zing, this recipe will become a fast favourite.
Thursday: Pasta and Chickpea Ragù
This hearty, comforting dish is made with chicken broth (or for a vegetarian version, opt for vegetable broth), chickpeas, potatoes and short pasta. The soup should have a thick texture, similar to that of a purée or stew. Garnish with grated cheese and dig right in!
Friday: Curried Cabbage Noodles with Sautéed Beef
Put more vegetables on your plate by replacing pasta with cabbage noodles! Just cut a cabbage in half and slice it into thin strips. Once coated with a mixture of curry, soy sauce and honey, you’ll truly be blown away by how amazing it tastes.
