As we know, evenings are a busy part of the day. Dealing with traffic, picking up the kids at school, doing homework, taking the kids back to soccer practice ... and finding the time to eat healthy food !
Here are 7 quick and easy meal ideas for busy weekday nights.
1- Poached eggs in tomato sauce
In a deep skillet, bring a diced tomato cane or commercial tomato sauce to a boil and add the spices you like (garlic, oregano, parsley, basil, etc.). With a spoon, dig 6 holes and break one egg into each one. Sprinkle with cheese of your choice and voilà!
What could be easier than rice, vegetables, shrimp and spicy mayo! Try it, you will not be disappointed.
3- Asian stirfry
Your nutritionist has probably suggested that you keep frozen vegetables in your freezer. It's time to use them! In a saucepan, cook some rice. Meanwhile, in an anti adhesive skillet, cook vegetables and a protein of your choice (tofu, tempeh, chicken, seafood). When the protein is cooked, add ¼ cup Mirin sauce and ¼ cup reduced salt soy sauce. You can serve with rice or rice noodles. Enjoy!
4- Fish papillote
On a square of aluminum foil, place a sliced onion, 2 bok choys and 5 ml of olive oil. Add a fish fillet of your choice (cod, salmon, herring, etc.) and sprinkle with spices of your choice (dill, parsley, lemon, etc.). Cook on the BBQ for about 10 minutes or until cooked through.
5- Pizza on pita
Do you have leftovers of flat bread (pita, tortilla, naan, etc.)? It's time to empty the fridge with the remaining vegetables. Preheat the oven to 425 ° F. Spread tomato sauce on your bread, garnish with vegetables and leftover meat (if you have any). Sprinkle with choice cheese and bake for 10-12 minutes until cheese is lightly browned.
Have a look at our goat cheese and dried tomato quiche recipe and change it as you desire. Take any cheese in your fridge, replace dried tomatoes with a vegetable of your choice and voilà!
We like tacos. They are fast and you can put what you want in them ! Choose a bread (tacos, pita, naan), put vegetables (cabbage, radish, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, celery, spinach, kale, pickled vegetables, etc.) and add a sauce (salsa, spicy mayo, BBQ, etc.). There you go !
