Sometimes meal planning can be a little daunting, and, let’s face it, a bit boring. I get it. Instead I want to share with you a simple 4-step strategy to go into your week with. We’re going to make something to freeze, one that’s a breeze, something for flavour, and something to savour.
Something to freeze can be any freezer-friendly or make-ahead recipe. One that’s a breeze is a simple recipe that comes together in 30 minutes or less for an easy weeknight dinner. Something for flavour is a sauce, dressing, dip, spread, or basically anything you can add to veggies, grains, or proteins to spruce them up a bit. And something to savour is a snack or treat that’s nice to have on hand.
Here’s what we’ll do this week:
Something to freeze
These Curried Cauliflower Chickpea Wraps are freezer-friendly, vegan-friendly, friend-friendly, and they're damn delicious. A batch will last several days in your fridge, or a couple of months in your freezer.
One that's a breeze:
This Spring Vegetable Lo Mein from Hello Veggie is loaded with seasonal veggies, tempeh, and a super tasty sauce. It's a quick and easy weeknight dinner, and leftovers are perfect for packed lunches.
Something for flavour:
Not only will this Coriander Mint Chutney from Food to Glow go great with the Chickpea Wraps, but you'll find countless other ways to use it up. Kellie recommends using it as a sandwich spread, on top of rice, eggs, etc. While you're at it, be sure to check out her Saag Paneer Grilled Cheese. I've made it twice now, and it's well worthy of your time.
Something to savour:
These freezer-friendly Carrot Pineapple Muffins make a great on-the-go breakfast, snack, or a little something on the sweet side with your afternoon tea.
