The holiday season may be over but that doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy some tasty food! The Weekly Meal Plan for January 7 features some delicious dishes that are all about simplicity. For many of you we’re back to work so we don’t have the time to spend hours in the kitchen cooking up epic dishes. That’s why for this week we are prioritizing meals that are simple and quick to make

Many of these dishes can be made using just one pot, so they’re nice and simple and avoid having to do lots of cleaning up afterwards! Finally, I’m sure many of you (like us) ate way too much food over the holiday break. So, we’re sticking to some healthy dishes this week as we ease into 2024!

A Healthy Salad and Stir Fry to kick off the Weekly Meal Plan

We kick off the meal plan heading to Southeast Asia for our delicious Thai Inspired Mango Salad with Peanut Dressing. Make no mistake about it, this salad packs a punch with beautiful sweetness coming through from the Mangos and Peanuts. That sweetness is balanced out perfectly with a vibrant, acidic dressing. A perfect light salad to kick off the week

There’s nothing simpler than a stir fry, and we’ve got an amazing recipe for you in our Honey Soy Chicken Vegetable Stir Fry. You can cook this bad boy in just 10 minutes, and it goes great with whatever your favorite vegetables are. It’s a hearty and super nutritious dish that will feed the whole family. You might even have some leftovers for lunch the next day too!

Classic Dishes that are warming for a cold, wintery January

If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere we know those January winters can be tough! So here are a couple of delicious, hearty, and warming dishes that can all be made with just 1 pot. The first is our Harissa Chicken and Vegetables dish. Throw some beautiful roasting vegetables such as Potatoes, Onions, Carrots, and Leeks into a roasting tray. Cover them with Chicken Thighs coated with a spicy Harissa Paste, then roast it all up to perfection. Packed full of flavor, this dish tastes unbelievable and is so easy to make!

Either as it’s own dinner or as a side dish, our Roasted Mushrooms with Garlic Butter are a treat to eat. Find some hearty, meaty mushrooms such as Portobello and Trumpet Mushrooms, drown them in Garlic and Butter then Roast until beautifully golden-brown and caramelized. This beautiful Vegetarian dish tastes as good as it sounds, trust us!

Treat yourself this week with Chocolate Cake

Ok ‘almost’ all the dishes in the meal plan are healthy – but you deserve this! An unbelievably delicious Dark Chocolate Cake just cannot be beaten. This recipe comes to us care of our good friends at Mealtime Joy who were kind enough to share this recipe with us. It is decadent, chocolatey, and oh-so delicious!

Finally, for our Lunching on Leftovers if you’ve got some spare Eggs in the fridge after making that amazing cake then why not have some fun with them by making Shakshuka! This is our version of a spicy Shakshuka using more of that wonderful Harissa Paste that you used in the Roasted Chicken Dish. This recipe is the king of brunch for a reason, so why not give it a go

Thanks for checking out our Meal Plan for January 7 and Happy Cooking!
