In this week’s meal plan, I am leaning into fast, simple dinners that I can have on the table in a flash, like Baked Miso Salmon or my go-to Bolognese Sauce.
Roasted Chicken with Gravy
Roasted chicken is a meal that rotates on our meal plan at least once a fortnight. There is something so wholesome and comforting about a roasted dinner. Regardless of the season, it’s so lovely to come home after a long day and enjoy perfectly cooked chicken and a big plate of roasted potatoes. It may look complicated, but this is one of the easiest dinners to make. The oven does all the hard work, and this method takes next to no time to prepare.
Homemade Beef Burger
These juicy burger patties are the answer to your next meal plan. Burgers are something my entire family love. Whether it’s outside during the summer months on the BBQ or as comforting Friday night fakeaway, I know everyone will be happy! The best part is how quick these are to make. It really as simple as mixing a few ingredients together. Once you make your own, you will never go back to store bought pre-made patties. These taste so much better, plus you have the satisfaction of knowing yours are made with simple, wholesome ingredients.
These are vegetarian nachos my way. Beans loaded up with salads and seasoned with an incredible, homemade nachos seasoning (that can be made in bulk or on demand as I have here). Everyone can top their plate with their favourite toppings. Extra chilli for me and an excuse to make homemade margaritas. This is what fake-away dreams are made of. Inexpensive, delicious and on the table in less than 15 minutes.
Massaman Beef Slow Cooker
Looking for a hearty and flavorful meal that practically cooks itself? Look no further than this delicious Massaman beef slow cooker recipe! Enjoy tender, melt-in-your-mouth beef in a rich, fragrant curry sauce. And the best part? The slow cooker does all the work for you, so you can sit back and relax while your kitchen fills with the tantalizing aroma of Thai spices.
One Pot Creamy Pesto Gnocchi
Perfectly cooked potato gnocchi in a creamy pesto sauce with bacon, spinach leaves, parmesan and garlic. This recipe transforms simple freezer vegetables into something extraordinary. My creamy pesto gnocchi requires minimal preparation and will be on your dinner table in less than 10 minutes. And the best part? You only need one pot, which means less clean-up time and more time to enjoy every bite!
Baked Miso Salmon
Miso is the ultimate umami flavour sensation and is so easy to cook with at home. Miso paste is available at most major supermarkets and mixed with a few simple ingredients like tamari, sugar and vinegar, it makes the most incredible marinade. This is Baked Miso Salmon with maximum flavour and minimal effort. I regularly make this meal midweek because it’s as simple as mixing a few pantry staples together and popping the tray in the oven.
This bolognese sauce is seriously delicious and simple to make! It’s the ultimate comfort food that’ll make you feel all warm and cozy inside. The trick is to take your time and cook the veggies slowly while adding some beef stock to make it extra rich and flavorful. It’s perfect for feeding a hungry family of four, and the leftovers are just as good (if not better!). You can also stash some in the freezer for an easy meal anytime.
