August 16 to 20, 2021: Fresh and Colourful Recipes to Cook This Week

Light, tasty, healthful, colourful...that’s what we normally look for in a late-summer recipe. The five fresh meal ideas below will become fast favourites, and are perfect as the warm season slowly comes to a close.

Monday: Barbecue Pulled Jackfruit and Tofu

For the taste of pulled pork minus the meat, try this vegan version made with tofu and jackfruit! Served in a bun with a colourful slaw, it’ll make for a hearty and flavourful meal.

Tuesday: Warm Couscous Salad with Green Beans and Merguez Skewers

Despite the back-to-school season being just around the corner, we are still in the midst of summer. So enjoy this platter of merguez, couscous and bright veggies al fresco tonight!

Wednesday: Quinoa and Tofu with Kale Salad

Power bowls are brimming with the good stuff: grains, protein, toppings and a drizzle of sauce. This quinoa dish includes tofu, kale, grapes and radishes; it doesn’t get any fresher than that!

Thursday: Avocado, Bacon and Sugar Snap Pea Toasts

Sometimes, we want dinner to be a simple, no-fuss affair. Sandwiches fall into this category, but easy doesn’t necessarily mean boring or tasteless. Case in point: this fresh avocado toast.

Friday: Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Friday night is pizza night, but how about we deviate from the usual? If a loved one is gluten intolerant, this cauliflower crust will be a welcome alternative to traditional dough. Top your pie with plump cherry tomatoes and peppery arugula, and dinner is served!
