Dinner Planner - Week of January 29th 2018 | Pamela Salzman

I am finishing up this month’s menu this week and then I will have the recipes available through my online classes.  I have had a small technical hiccup, but I think it should be worked out soon!  Super Bowl Sunday is next weekend and it’s not too soon to buy your avocados LOL!  Buy them rock hard and allow them to ripen on the countertop where no one will molest them and cause them to bruise.  Once they achieve the desired give, stick them in the fridge until it’s time tomato guacamole!  Here’s your dinner planner for the week:

Meatless Monday: Middle eastern vegetable soup with freekeh from my cookbook – this is plenty for my family but if you need something more, you could serve it with avocado toast or a green salad

Tuesday: ginger salmon from kale and chocolate, qunioa with toasted coconut and lime and sesame roasted cauliflower

Wednesday: lemon-thyme chicken, broccoli puree, simple roasted sweet potatoes

Thursday: turkey tacos and green salad with pinto beans, avocado and homemade ranch dressing

Friday: asian noodle salad with seared tofu and stir-fried bok choy

Saturday Lunch: Kale, mushroom and brown rice bake

Super Bowl Sunday: We haven’t figured out our plans yet, but in the past we have done several different easy, buffet options for a small group like:

I generally make guacamole and baked tortilla chips,  plus jicama cut into thin “chips,” “vegan queso” with chips and baked sweet potato rounds, crudités with hummus.  I have also done sliders/mini burgers, mini chicken tostadasbroccoli and cheese potato bites, or warm spinach and artichoke dip, zucchini tots, chipotle brussels sprouts, Mexican cobb salad, shishito peppers, greek pasta salad or sweet potato nachos

Some options from my book are: Greek nachos, loaded baked potato soup, chipotle turkey chili, the perfect baked potato, Green goddess chicken salad, mexcian chopped salad with spicy cilantro dressing, slow cooker chicken tacos, chipotle shrimp tacos, Portobello and poblano tacos with charred corn or wild halibut burgers

Here’s what you can do ahead:

Toast coconut, store at room temperature

Cook beans from scratch, if you aren’t buying canned

I have LOVED seeing all your creations of my recipes on Instagram.  If you make any of my recipes, please tag me @pamelasalzman #pamelasalzman so I can check them out!

If you like my recipes, you’ll LOVE my new cookbook!  If you have cooked from my book and you are enjoying it, it would mean so much to me if you would write a review on amazon.  🙂
