Here at Cook Smarts, spring is our favorite time in the kitchen. As the frigid winter weather thaws and everywhere we look starts bursting with color, we love to infuse the lightness, brightness, and freshness of the season into our everyday meals.
Whether you’re just getting into a cooking routine or need some new dish ideas to get you out of a dinner rut, we have brought together some of our favorite spring recipes and compiled them into the ultimate springtime meal plan eBook, 4 Weeks of Meals to Celebrate the Season – available for only $14.99!
Our meal plan service, voted #1 by Lifehacker, has been helping home cooks make more meals at home without the stress of dinner decisions since 2013. Over the years, we’ve developed the best way to organize meals to reduce food waste and optimize efficient cooking strategies to get delectable dinners on the table fast. We made sure that our Springtime eBook includes these smart practices in every set of meals:
Our eBook features 20 easy recipes organized into four streamlined weeks of Monday to Friday dinners. Each menu utilizes the new abundance of produce at the market while making sure you get delicious and healthy meals on the table with zero stress.
Our eBook ensures that you make smart use of your time with our “make once, eat twice” components, like the quinoa we use for both a Greek Chicken Quinoa Bowl and Quinoa Fried “Rice” with Ground Pork & Fried Egg.
We intentionally craft our weekly menus to reduce food waste. That means making efficient use of all ingredients, so you aren’t left with half a bundle of cilantro or half a can of coconut milk at the end of the week.
Recommended Make Aheads
We know that not every day of the week looks the same, so we include suggestions for what ingredients (or sometimes whole meals!) you can prep in advance so you can bring dinner together in a flash on busy nights. This includes our Weekend Prep Steps that will have you ready to take on the week by the time Sunday night rolls around.
Ideas for Leftovers
Leftovers can save you tons of time and money, so we make recommendations for how you can easily transform leftover ingredients into new, simple breakfasts, lunches, or dinners. We also reveal what meals (or meal components) freeze well to help you optimize your time even more, and include a special Guide to Frozen Food Storage in the eBook.
Our eBook has a handy grocery list for each of the four weekly menus so you can zip in and out of the store and spend more time enjoying that charming spring weather.
If these efficient cooking practices have piqued your interest, you’re now probably curious about what kinds of meals are included in our eBook. Well, we aren’t going to spoil all the fun, but we are excited to give you a little taste of the deliciousness you have to look forward to!
These are not ordinary hamburgers. Gaining over 120 stellar reviews and making it to our Top 10 Meals of 2019, this dinner brings a new standard to the world of burgers. With creamy chimichurri mayo and healthy green bean ‘fries,’ this 45-minute dinner is one you will want to come back to again and again.
Soy Ginger Salmon & Sesame Noodles
Slow roasting salmon in a savory sauce leaves it tender and lightly flavored with hints of peanuts, lime, ginger, and toasted sesame. With a mouth-watering bok choy, carrot, and noodle stir-fry on the side, this healthy 35-minute recipe is in a league all of its own.
Baked Greek Potatoes with Sun-dried Tomato Pesto
We like to think of this meal as potato “nachos” with a Greek twist! Since we first featured this recipe in 2015, vegetarians and meat-eaters alike have been raving about it. Served with a balsamic arugula salad on the side, who can resist potatoes topped with fontina cheese, kalamata olives, and sun-dried tomato pesto and baked to bubbly perfection?
Now that you’ve gotten a sneak peak into some of the amazing recipes you can start making this week, just remember that you can follow each weekly menu to a tee or simply use them as a jumping off point for your personal dinner operation. However you choose to use our springtime meal plans, we hope that having your dinner planning already done will open up more free time to truly enjoy the season.
