Meatless Monday: Got Leftovers from #SundaySupper?

When you’re cooking, more is definitely better. Case in point: When you make enough to have leftovers from Sunday night, you can transform them into Monday’s meal! Many of our #SundaySupper recipes are big enough to yield two meals for your family, and our various vegetarian options translate perfectly for Meatless Monday. So instead of starting from scratch every day, try one of these long-lasting recipes.

Cream of Mushroom Soup

Butternut Squash Risotto

Spinach Mushroom Quiche

 

 

Now, just add a side salad and you’re good to go. Or, maybe you do want to start from scratch tonight so you can celebrate Guacamole Day. Try our Huevos Rancheros with a big dollop of the green stuff for an extra protein boost. Now that’s a meal we worth celebrating.

Technique Tuesday: How to Change Up Chicken Breast

Think of a chicken breast as a blank canvas: it’s just begging for you to use ingredients and techniques to make it a flavorful work of art. You’ll never think of chicken as being boring again after learning these four fast and easy tricks to totally change up chicken.

 

Chicken BLT

1. Split It

Place the breast flat on a work surface and stabilize it with your palm. Using a chef’s knife, slice horizontally starting from the thicker side of the breast, creating two 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick pieces. Cook the cutlets quickly in EVOO and use them in sandwiches like this Chicken BLT.

 

Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken

2. Pocket It

Using a paring knife, make a horizontal cut, about an inch and a half long, in the thickets part of the breast. Sweep the tip of the blade laterally within the cut, being careful not to poke through the sides, to create a pocket. Now, you can stuff it with cheese, herbs, mushrooms and other tasty things like  spinach and feta!

 

Chicken Roll-Ups

3. Pound It

Place the breast between two sheets of plastic wrap. Working with a meat pounder from the center of the breast outward, use firm, even blows to flatten the breast to the desired thickness. Thinner breasts roll up easily. Layer on meats and cheeses; then roll, bake and slice into cool spirals!

 

Acorn Squash and Chicken Chili

4. Process It

Cut chicken breasts into cubes and place in a food processor. Pulse until finely ground but not a paste, about four 1-second pulses. Keep ground meat refrigerated until ready to form into patties or use in chili.

Meatless Monday: 3 Must-Try Vegetarian Curry Recipes

When you’re looking for a Meatless Monday meal with a one-two punch of flavor, look no further than one of our vegetable curry recipes. We guarantee that whether you’re a fan of spicy Thai red curries or tamarind and coriander-based Indian curries or prefer your curry dishes “wet” (made with lots of sauce or liquid) or “dry” (coated in the spice mixture), you’ll be so focused on all of the layers of robust, savory flavor that you won’t even notice that there’s no meat.

 

Whip up one of our three favorite vegetarian curry recipes below:

 

Curry-Tomato Sauce with Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Chickpeas Recipe

 

Curry-Tomato Sauce with Whole Wheat Spaghetti and Chickpeas 

 

This 30-Minute Meal recipe from Rachael Ray brings together Middle Eastern and Italian flavors with a spiced tomato sauce over whole wheat noodles. Use a pre-mixed curry powder or create your own blend with tumeric, cumin, corinander, cinnamon and cardamom.

 

 

 

 

Vegetable Red Curry with Coconut Milk

 

The red curry in this one-bowl meal is balanced with brown sugar and unsweetened coconut milk, which also adds a hint of luscious creaminess. To make this dinner even quicker, prep and freeze vegetables in advance or pick up steamed rice from your local takeout restaurant.

 

 

 

Tofu Coconut Curry Recipe

Believe it or not, you can make this meal for $2.29 per person–that’s under $10 for four people! If you have an extra buck and are interested in adding a burst of color and sweetness too, add 1/2 cup of frozen peas five minutes before serving.
