This is part of our Meal Plan initiative, where we curate five enticing, nutritious recipes to streamline your weeknight dinners. We provide prep tips, shopping lists that minimize waste, and ideas for leftovers. With sustainability in mind, we're featuring meatless Mondays.
Sheet-pan meals are a staple for busy workdays, as they're customizable and require little preparation and cleanup. Your week starts with two unique variations: first, a five-ingredient root vegetable medley, followed by Tuesday's roasted chicken salad. On Wednesday, make a bold burrito bowl accompanied by broccoli slaw. Dandelion greens and sweet potatoes get tossed in a tangy date-citrus vinaigrette in Thursday's dinner. Friday, you'll use your grill pan (or skillet) to cook five-spice pork chops.
Lunch plan: You'll have enough leftovers to bring lunch every day this week.
Buy in bulk: You'll use radishes, pre-made broccoli slaw, and scallions multiple times this week.
Prep tips: For a heartier dish, add a cup of roasted chickpeas or crispy tofu to Monday's sheet-pan salad. Use leftover turkey from your burrito bowl and serve on top of Thursday's dandelion greens to add protein.
