Monday: 40-minute Saag Paneer

If anything proves that meatless Monday can be just as hearty and delicious as carnivorous meals, it’s this Indian dish. Full of spinach and Indian farmer’s cheese, saag paneer will quickly become a dinner favorite.

Tuesday: Black Pepper And Lime Baked Wild Salmon With Snap Pea Slaw And Crispy Carrots

Once you have Coterie member Jodi Moreno’s baked salmon dinner down, you can whip it up quickly. One tip? Make the snap pea slaw and crispy carrots ahead to cut the raw-to-cooked time down to just 15 minutes.

Wednesday: Charred Poblano Pesto Pasta

Add some pizzazz to your pesto. Coterie member Aida Mollenkamp’s pepper pesto pasta uses charred poblanos and pepitas for a smokier version of pesto pasta.

Thursday: Slow-cooker Chana Masala

Grab those Indian spices again. This slow-cooker adaptation of chana masala, a chickpea-based Indian curry, has all the makings of a tasty meal for busy weeknights. (Thanks for the inspo, Gena Hamshaw!)

Friday: Salmon Burgers

Extra salmon and leftover coleslaw from Tuesday make a fabulous Friday night dinner. Pop these on the grill, grab the wine and head to the nearest patio for an alfresco meal to kick off the weekend.

Saturday: The Juiciest Chicken Kebabs

The secret to succulent chicken kabobs? Brine the chicken in salt water before rubbing it in paprika and grilling.

Sunday: French Onion Brisket

Bye, tomatoes. Try this inventive brisket recipe that adds caramelized onions and sherry wine to the classic beef slow roast.
