Don’t forget the grocery list. It has everything you need to buy, plus a few items to make sure you’re still stocked up on in the pantry.
This week, get all the shopping out of the way, and cook along with us every night as we use flavourful, easy dinner recipes to make a meal in 45 minutes or less. And leftovers — what leftovers? Here’s a simple set of recipes to help you use up any odds and ends when the week is over:
1. Roasted cashews.
Nutty gomae salad
Whirl 1 cup mayo with 1/2 cup roasted cashews, 1/4 cup each toasted sesame seeds and rice vinegar, 1 tbsp each grated ginger and soy and 1 tsp miso paste in a food processor until smooth. Drizzle over shredded lettuce, grated carrots and sliced avocado.
2. Ricotta cheese.
Dark chocolate mousse
Microwave 1 cup dark chocolate chips until almost melted, 1 to 2 min. Stir until smooth. Let cool. Whisk 2 cups 35% cream in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Whisk in melted chocolate, then 1/2 cup ricotta until combined. Scoop into serving dishes.
