It’s time to get a head start on your meal plan for next week. From a healthy twist on burgers to a one-pot pasta meal, we’ve got 5 easy weeknight dinners that will get you through the week. So grab a pen, make your shopping list, and stock up before the weekend’s over.
Faith at The Kitchn introduces this recipe for Soba, Sesame, Carrot Salad by saying that everyone needs a quick soba salad dinner recipe in their life, and I couldn’t agree more. The Cold Soba Noodle Salad from my cookbook Make It Easy has been a staple in my kitchen for years, but I’m excited to change things up for #MeatlessMonday with Faith’s version.
With the transition from our summer to school schedules, I’m all about keeping dinner super kid-friendly, because right now, mealtime is not a battle I’m choosing. My kids will be psyched to eat Chicken Teriyaki and Veggie Rice Bowls at Cooking Classy, and I love that they are a one-bowl meal. Not fighting about food has never been so easy.
Easy and healthy, this Maple Sriracha Roasted Salmon at my site, One Hungry Mama, has been reintroduced to weekly dinner rotation. You only need six ingredients to make this and it’s super easy to adjust the heat level up or down for the whole family or even per individual portion which, of course, is super helpful when feeding little ones.
One-Pot Creamy Sausage Pasta | Smells Like Home
We here at Cool Mom HQ are obsessed with one-pot meals, especially when they involve pasta. It’s hard to choose just one from our latest round-up of these super convenient recipes, but I’m going for the One-Pot Creamy Sausage Pasta that we found at Smells Like Home. Because creamy. And sausage. And pasta. And did I mention that it cooks in one pot?
If you’ve been using our meal plans for a while now, you know that I’m a sucker for burgers or pizza on Fridays. I’m especially psyched for this week’s choice, 20-Minute Black Bean Burgers with Pineapple Salsa at With Salt & Wit. I admit that the whole 20-minute thing is what convinced me, but I’m always happy serve a recipe that puts a fun, healthy spin on the usual.
