December 9-13, 2019: What to Cook This Week

Between office parties, that pre-holiday workload and the children’s excitement growing with each passing day, it’s good to take a moment in all the madness to relax and prepare simple meals: a curry in a hurry, an exotic chicken dish and a reinvented classic.

Monday: Pressure Cooker Lentil and Squash Curry

The pressure cooker makes it possible to make dishes that would normally require a long cooking time at record speed! This curry has all the aromatic flavours of chili, cumin, turmeric and coconut milk, along with butternut squash and lentils. Make it a complete meal and serve with naan bread for dipping!

Tuesday: Sautéed Beef with Olives and Tomatoes

It’s hard to find anything simpler than this sautéed beef dish. In less than 30 minutes, you’ll have a hearty, heartwarming meal with a rich tomato-olive sauce that adds just the right amount of salty goodness.

Wednesday: Spicy Chicken with Cantaloupe and Chorizo

Avec son petit air exotique aux couleurs éclatantes, cette recette de poulet est parfaite pour les journées grises et froides. Des escalopes de poulet au piment et aux graines de fenouil sont garnies de saucisson chorizo et accompagnées d’une salade de cantaloup au paprika.

Thursday: Pasta, Tuna, Apple and Artichoke Salad

This pasta dish is just as good served hot at dinnertime as it is cold for lunch the next day. Crisp diced apples, crunchy almonds and artichoke hearts are combined with canned light tuna for a super-convenient, quick and easy meal./p>

Friday: Smoked Meat Quesadillas

To end the week on a fun note, take fusion cuisine to the next level: We combine Mexican quesadillas with Montreal smoked meat for this wildly delicious recipe. Complete with yellow mustard and dill pickles, it’s a whole new take on the smoked meat deli sandwich classic.
