This quick, nutritious dish takes just 25 minutes from prep to plate and is loaded with good-for-you veggies. A win-win.

Another one-pan meal to minimize your post-dinner dish duty: This one’s warm and filling (even though it’s totally meat-free).

Thursday: Crispy-skinned Sweet Potato And Avocado Mash With Greens And Chimichurri

The chimichurri makes more than you’ll need, so save any leftovers for another day. (According to PureWow Coterie member Jodi Moreno, it gets better as it sits.)

Sure, you could make the hummus from scratch…or you could buy it from the grocery store and give yourself a pat on the back because you survived the week.

Sweet, savory and secretly low-calorie, this hands-off meal is exactly what you need for a cozy weekend. (Netflix optional, but encouraged.)
