This week I have an idea for super easy weeknight dinners: The One Pan Meal!
You need one pan meals in your life. Especially if you’re a busy family.
The best part about this type of meal is that you can use whatever you have on hand.
Get a bunch of veggies, some protein like wild salmon or chickpeas if you’re veg (or not!), and throw them on the pan.
Cook the veggies first for about 10 mins at 400 degrees C and then add the salmon for another 10 mins or so. If you’re making this with chickpeas (like I did here) you can just throw them on the pan at the same time as the rest of the veggies.
I’ve learned that cooking salmon and other fish is better when it spends a shorter time in the oven at a higher heat.
Test your oven and see what works for you, but you don’t need to cook salmon until it dries out. Leave a few clean juices and it’ll continue to cook a bit after you’ve taken it out of the oven.
Eating healthfully should not be a lot of work. One pan meals and one pot meals are a great way to keep you moving toward better health, even if you’re busy.
Send me a note if you need help making quick and nourishing meals.
