Here’s What to Cook Every Night This Week (May 25 - 31)
Memorial Day might look a little different this year, but that won’t stop us from cooking (and eating) our favorite summer treats. If groceries are still a challenge, buy what you can and don’t sweat it. These recipes require ten ingredients or less to keep things easy, and substitutions are always encouraged.
2 garlic cloves
3 red onions
3 medium sweet potatoes
1 bunch asparagus
1 bunch baby arugula
1 ear corn
8 medium tomatoes
1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch parsley
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken tenders
6 ounces prosciutto
2 dozen eggs
1 stick butter
1 jar mayonnaise
4 ounces cotija cheese
1 pint whole milk
4 ounces cheddar cheese
4 ounces Parmesan cheese
4 ounces feta cheese
8 ounces Gouda cheese
1 box elbow macaroni
1 package corn tortillas
1 large oval flatbread or prebaked pizza crust (at least 12 inches long)
1 cup quinoa
Canned and Packaged Goods
One 28-ounce can pineapple rings
1 jar marinara sauce
Pantry Ingredients: Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, Dijon mustard, kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, chile powder, flour, lemon pepper seasoning, honey, cayenne pepper, extra-virgin olive oil, cumin, garlic powder, barbecue sauce
Tuesday: Lemon Chicken with Asparagus
How can a dinner this beautiful be so simple? If you don’t have asparagus, you can easily swap in broccoli, peas or whatever else is in season (and cheap) where you live.
Wednesday: 10-Minute Macaroni and Cheese in a Mug
Some nights, we want to spend hours making macaroni and cheese from scratch. This is not one of those nights. This is a “nuke it in the microwave” kind of evening and we’ll be the first to admit it.
Thursday: Eggs Baked in Tomatoes
A dish featuring two foods you probably have in your kitchen at this very moment: a carton of eggs and ripe tomatoes. (But if you want to sub in bell peppers, it’s equally delicious.)
Friday: Spicy Sweet Potato Tacos
In this week’s “Made from Sketch,” food editor Katherine Gillen shares her easy recipe for low-maintenance vegan taco filling (but we won’t tell if you top the whole thing with cheese).
Saturday: Cheater’s Prosciutto Hawaiian Pizza
There are two types of people in this world: People who love pineapple and ham on pizza and complete lunatics. (We kid, we kid.) But if you’re a pineapple pizza lover like us, give this cheater’s version a whirl. It’s ready in half an hour and requires only seven ingredients.
Sunday: Baked Quinoa Chicken Nuggets
They’re crispy and moist and don’t taste even remotely healthy. Pair them with a side salad (or don’t and say you did).
