Break out the canned chickpeas for this easy #MeatlessMonday meal of Spinach with Chickpeas and Fried Eggs at Bon Appetit. This highly rated recipe cooks up in about 30 minutes and looks totally delicious. Plus, eggs for dinner is always a win in my house.
This recipe for Soy Ginger Meatballs with Fried Rice at My Baking Addiction had me at its title. Then, I realized that veggies are cooked into the rice, making this a one-bowl meal. Done. The recipe calls for a soy glaze, which you can pick up at the supermarket. If you have the time and would rather make your own to keep it cheaper—it’s made with pantry staples—try this Soy Glaze recipe at All Recipes.
So many fast and easy fish recipes are geared towards salmon, which is why I love this recipe for Baked Fish in Lemon Cream Sauce at Recipe Tin Eats. That, and lemon cream sauce. This dinner comes together in a baking dish, then all you have to do is make rice and a big salad.
Growing up Greek, stuffed peppers were a staple in my house, but making them the way that my grandmother did is not easy. That’s why I’m in love with this recipe for Chicken Sausage and Spinach Stuffed Peppers at Host the Toast. It makes stuffed peppers fast and easy, the way they need to be. Also, you can always swap in chopped beef or turkey for the chicken sausage if you want.
Fall is in full swing and this Friday calls for a fall pasta like this creamy, decadent Butternut Squash Pasta Carbonara at Cooking Classy. I love that this easy pasta dish incorporates veggies in a subtle way (ahem, the kids don’t need to know about the squash if you don’t want them to) and also that it’s paired with bacon. Perfection.
