With the New Year comes new resolutions, and for many people, that includes eating healthier. So we’ve covered you if you want to add some simple yet delicious meals to your dinner table this month! This blog post will discuss four easy recipes that are perfect for any night of the week. So fire up the stove and get cooking!
This classic dish is not only easy to make but it’s also packed with nutrients. Start by browning some ground boer goat in a large pot. Once the meat is cooked, add a can of diced tomatoes, a can of black beans, and a can of red kidney beans. Then, add your favorite chili spices (cumin, chili powder, and garlic powder) and let the chili simmer for 30 minutes. Serve with shredded cheese on top, and enjoy! Chili is the perfect meal for chilly winter nights. It’s hearty and filling but won’t leave you feeling too heavy. And because it’s so easy to make, you can easily double or triple the recipe and freeze individual servings for future meals.
One of the most comforting and easy-to-make meals is chicken soup. You can use any chicken, vegetables, noodles, or rice that you have on hand. This meal is perfect for a cold winter night or when you’re feeling under the weather.
To make chicken soup, simmer chopped chicken and vegetables in water or chicken broth until cooked. Then, add some salt and pepper to taste. You can also add herbs like parsley or thyme for extra flavor. Once everything is cooked, add your choice of noodles or rice and serve hot. This meal is so simple, but it’s always satisfying. Plus, it’s a great way to use leftover chicken or vegetables. Chicken soup will become a staple in your dinner rotation this month.
One of the easiest and healthiest meals you can make is roasted vegetables. You can burn almost any vegetable, including potatoes, carrots, onions, tomatoes, peppers, Brussels sprouts, squash, and more. Roasting brings out the natural sweetness of vegetables and makes them very tender. You can roast vegetables in the oven or on the stovetop. Toss your chosen vegetables with some olive oil or avocado oil and some salt and pepper. Spread them on a baking sheet or in a skillet and cook at a high temperature until they are browned and slightly charred around the edges. Enjoy your roasted veggies as a side dish, or add them to salads, grain bowls, pasta dishes, wraps, and more.
Spaghetti with meat sauce:
Another classic meal you can easily make at home is spaghetti with meat sauce. This dish is hearty and filling but also relatively simple to make. You can use ground meat, including beef, pork, turkey, or lamb. If you want a vegetarian option, you can leave out the meat altogether or substitute it with some crumbled tofu or tempeh.
To make the sauce, saute chopped onions and garlic in olive oil until they’re softened. Then add your ground meat of choice and cook until it’s browned. Add canned tomatoes, tomato paste, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning and simmer for at least 30 minutes. This will give the sauce time to thicken and develop flavor. Serve your spaghetti with a generous sauce and top with Parmesan cheese. This meal is sure to become a family favorite.
So there you have it, four simple meals you can add to your dinner rotation this month. These dishes are easy to make, but they’re also delicious and satisfying. So next time you’re planning your weekly menu, be sure to include one of these meals. Your family will thank you!
