I'm all about making my weeknight meals healthy, delicious and quick. While I love a 15-minute meal, some of my favorite vegetables (like winter squash) taste better when you can roast them for a while.
A great way to make sure your weeknight meals are effortless is setting aside an hour or two on a Sunday to cook a few big batches of vegetables and grains that you can transform into different meals throughout the week.
Below I've laid out a game plan to cook once, then put in about 10 minutes worth of effort each night to create different meals Monday through Thursday.
The meals are built using a lot of pantry staples like olive/coconut oil, salt, beans and spices along with a few other fresh garnishes to create unique flavors so you never feel like you're eating leftovers.
The recipes will make approximately 2 servings of each meal, totaling at 8 meals altogether. Feel free to replace the delicata squash with butternut, sweet potato, or your favorite vegetable.
