Dinner: Changing the Game

April 6, 2017

Weeknight meals with minimal effort

Once again, I’m enamored with a cookbook that emphasizes easy cooking (see also: Sheet Pan Suppers).  This one offers modern twists on familiar recipes by incorporating unexpected ingredients—for example, a jalapeño in a Brussels sprouts pasta or rhubarb in a savory sausage dish.

See if any of these whet your appetite:

  • Roasted sausage and cauliflower with yogurt sauce
  • “Green Eggs” with leeks, jalapeño, spinach, and cilantro
  • Poblano quesadillas with smoked mozzarella
  • Pinto beans with parsnips and baby kale
  • Ham and navy bean soup with collard greens and cornbread croutons
