Monday: Roasted Vegetable Soup
A cozy soup at the start of the week just can’t be beat. This recipe is simple to throw together: Just roast your veggies in the oven for 20 minutes and then simmer them in broth with the rest of the ingredients for just five minutes more. Dinner has never been this relaxed!
Soups and broths
Tuesday: Spaetzle with Chicken and Arugula
Ever heard of spaetzle? It’s an irregular-shaped egg pasta popular in Germany and other Central European countries. It’s usually served with rich, saucy meats, but we love this lighter and fresher version featuring browned chicken, arugula, cherry tomatoes and mushrooms.
Wednesday: Ramen Noodle Bowls with Hoisin Salmon
Tonight, we’re suggesting a simple ramen dish for dinner. And even though it stars fish, the kids will still enjoy it (we promise). Tender noodles with meaty, flaky pieces of salmon coated in an umami-rich hoisin sauce? It’ll be a new family favourite you’ll want to add to your rotation.
Thursday: Sheet-Pan Shrimp, Black Beans and Chorizo
We love sheet-pan recipes that are quick, easy, and keep that post-dinner pile of dishes to a minimum. This one is particularly fun to eat; with its bright colours and peppy flavours, it’s a perfect dose of sunshine on a cold fall day. Eat it all as is, or you can even serve it in tacos!
Friday: One-Pot Lasagna
Tonight, satisfy the family with this lasagna that easily goes from skillet to table. It may take longer to cook compared to other weeknight meals, but hey, it’s Friday! Use that extra time that dinner is in the oven to catch up with the kids on this past week’s goings-on.
