April 24 to 28, 2023: What to cook this week

A variety of quick and easy meals are on the menu this week. From a colourful omelette to a one-pot dish and a scrumptious salad, you’ll find there is something for everyone’s taste.

Monday: Tomato and Mozzarella Omelette

A simple omelette is a healthy and sensible option to put on your menu for meatless Mondays. Combining half a dozen eggs, tomatoes, mozzarella and pesto, this succulent recipe can be made in a jiffy. With its appetizing spots of colour, this protein-packed meal will delight both kids and adults.

Tuesday: Cheese Ravioli with Smoked Salmon

Made from store-bought ravioli, this speedy recipe is mighty appealing on weeknights. Prepare the pasta in the same way as dumplings, boiling them until the water has completely evaporated, then pan-frying them with onion powder and sesame seeds. Garnish each plate with slivered red onions, sour cream and smoked salmon, lox bagel-style.

Wednesday: Barley, Cabbage and Ham Salad

Red food whets the appetite, as proven by this savoury salad that combines red cabbage, beets and grapes. Barley, Boston lettuce and pieces of ham are a welcome addition to this balanced composition topped with a creamy vinaigrette. Even better: you can cook the barley in advance and freeze it for later use! This slightly sweet recipe is a resounding winner with children.

Thursday: Tempeh Subs

Submarines are very popular at lunchtime, but as they’re quick to assemble, they’re also perfect for weeknight suppers. This vegetarian version uses tempeh, coated with a delicious mixture of soy sauce, ketchup and spices. Arugula and chili peppers are added as a garnish. All you’ve left to do is devour your sandwich!

Friday: One-Pot Chicken Cutlets with Sweet Potato and Olives

One-pot recipes such as this one are unanimous favourites on weeknights because all ingredients are cooked in the same pan. In this case, it means both chicken breasts and sweet potatoes. Serve this economical and savoury dish with couscous. A real treat for everyone at the table!
