I have heard so many people tell me that they tend to run out of ideas for dinner and end up making the same dishes every week. I used to be that person and I am sure some of you can relate. I know Planning dinner can be a pain in the neck so I am going to share 3 delicious dinners you can try for your next meal. You will be glad to know that one of them is a takeout meal but its Spoons and Stilettos style which means it’s not the typical fast food.
3 Delicious Dinners
1. Try roasting a whole chicken and serve it with a garlicky chickpea mash instead of potatoes or rice. For the chickpea mash all you need to do is puree’ 2 cans of organic chickpeas, with garlic, olive oil and a little lemon juice . A simple cucumber salad with cherry tomatoes , red onions, herbs, feta with a vinaigrette is the perfect accompaniment to this meal.
2. Don’t feel like cooking or don’t have the time, how about some Turkish food. Takeout does not have to be junk food so you can order a balanced meal that is packed with veggies and grains. What I love about this meal is that it looks and tastes like something I would have made at home. You can try other options like a sushi dinner, Korean, Thai, Italian. The important thing is to include vegetables and make sure that its a nutritious meal.
3. I call this the lazy meal only because its very easy to prepare. If you don’t have time, use ready cut fries instead of cutting the potatoes yourself, I love the Alexa brand for this. layer the fries in a shallow oven safe dish, place marinated chicken over the fries and cook in the oven for 45 mins. I pretty much use whatever I have in the fridge for the Arugula salad like tomatoes, red onion, red peppers. I also threw in some kiwi for the fun of it.
