February 24–28: What to Cook This Week

It’s the final week of February! While January seemed to drag on, this month just flew by. How to end it on a tasty note? We’ve got quick and easy recipes that’ll turn dinner on its head, from a vegan tofu and veggie dish to a classic comfort duo with a unique twist.

Monday: Sautéed Eggplant, Tofu and Cucumber with Peanut Sauce

Searching for something new to enjoy on Meatless Mondays and beyond? This recipe is rich in texture (hello, crunchy peanuts!) and umami flavour, and your vegan friends will love it, too!

Tuesday: Ginger Pork Stir-Fry

Stir-fries are always a winning meal idea; once you get home from work, dinner can be on the table in less than 30 minutes! Get a head-start by marinating your pork on Monday night before bed, and then it’ll be ready to quickly toss in a skillet the following evening.

Wednesday: Pappardelle with Salmon and Shiitake Mushrooms

Thick, ribbon-like pasta noodles, a rich and creamy sauce, tender chunks of salmon and ready in just 30 minutes? This recipe checks all the boxes! It may be quick and easy to make, but it definitely looks and tastes like something you’d find at a fancy restaurant.

Thursday: Tomato Soup with Breaded Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

If there’s a better comfort food duo than tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, we’d like to hear it. Go on, we’ll wait… No? That’s what we thought. Especially when our gooey sammies not only boast a secret salty ingredient (anchovy paste!) but are also breaded and fried to perfection.

Friday: Ground Lemongrass Chicken (Larb)

Ground chicken cooked with a slew of fresh ingredients and a couple of our fave fermented sauces (soy and fish, specifically)? Yep, everyone will simply devour this citrusy and aromatic Southeast-Asian larb tonight! You might have to make a stop at your nearby Asian grocery store on your way home from work to pick up some kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass but, trust us, the detour will be worth it.
