Happy Holy Week if you are observing the Easter holiday!  I’m enjoying a wonderful week with my family on Long Island and we are all trying to relax and focus on being present with each other. Here’s your dinner planner for the week: 

Meatless Monday: California Nicoise salad (with or without the tuna), check out this post for what to do with all the leftover eggs after Easter.

Tuesday: Instant Pot chicken tinga p. 199 served with baked pinto bean tostadas p. 277 from Quicker than Quick

Wednesday: Grilled carrots with tahini sauce served with my Lentil and Grilled Eggplant Salad

Thursday: Miso glazed black cod, pea and mushroom sauté or black rice and sauteed mushrooms

Friday: Miso Soup Bar and veggie potstickers from Trader Joe’s to make things EASY 😉

Saturday brunch: Slow cooker apple pie steel cut oats

Sunday: Turkey and brown rice stuffed bell peppers, clean-out-the-fridge green salad


Here’s what you can do in advance if it helps you: 


Make salad dressing

Wash greens

Blanch green beans


Cook beans if making from scratch

Make tahini sauce


Cook lentils or use pre-cooked


Cook rice for stuffed bell peppers
