Make anti-inflammatory lettuce wraps and Moroccan-spiced chicken.
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.
This week's first two dinners highlight the power of pairing certain foods. Cooking tofu with jalapeño, for example, has anti-inflammatory properties, so you'll use both in lettuce wraps on Monday. Tuesday's hearty meal adds citrus to steak, which is said to improve iron absorption. On Wednesday, you'll make a protein-rich fried rice with cauliflower, tofu, and peas. Thursday's Moroccan chicken dish uses dates for a hint of sweetness. Finally on Friday, a Mediterranean-inspired salmon burger is served with creamy tzatziki sauce and salty Kalamata olives.
You'll have enough food to bring leftovers every day this week.
Buy in bulk:
You'll use tofu, jalapeño, garlic, lime, carrots, onion, lettuce, and dill multiple times this week.
Make Tuesday's mojo dressing the day before and store in the fridge to let flavors develop. For a low-carb option, swap the rice in Thursday's dinner for lettuce and serve as a salad.
