Dinner, Faster

Your 10 Favorite Weeknight-Friendly Recipes (Grocery List & Cooking Plan Included)

Do you know what you're making for dinner tonight? Oh, us neither! Maybe you'd like a sandwich pretending to be spanakopita? Or a bowl of sparse-on-ingredients, big-on-flavor soup?

Oh, or how about one tonight and the other tomorrow night? Look, there you go—meal planning! Here are your 10 favorite weeknight-ready recipes from the past year:


10

You basically only need an onion, a head of cauliflower, and water.


9

Ready in about 20 minutes (just don't forget a baguette for serving).


8

Ha! But you didn't stew and stir all day. There's maybe 40 minutes of work, tops.


7

Here's a 5-ingredient chicken dinner. You're welcome.


6

Non-meat meatballs, meet a vibrant, creamy, and coconut-y sauce.


5

It's also a viable excuse for any night of the week and/or weekend.


4

This one-pan dinner is great on its own, but really great with a poached egg on top (which no longer makes it one-pan, but still).


3

Happily not tuna salad, but similarly quite content on a piece of toast.


2

We can guess why you like this based on the fact that it includes one pot and cheese in the title.

And the winner is...

Ah, we see you have a thing for melted cheese. Us too! It's also an excuse for you to justify grabbing that panini press stored away in your closet. A win-win all-around.

“I make this recipe literally once per week. My 1 year old and 4 year old both love it and it reheats nicely for lunch. I've done variations by using a cast iron skillet or adding broccoli to it as well and letting it steam while the salmon cooks.”
