This week’s menu was compiled based on the products featured in this week’s IGA Quebec flyer. How practical!
Monday: Cherry Tomato and Zucchini Spaghetti
Picked up tomatoes and zucchini from the grocery store? Then this simple pasta dish is a must for dinner tonight. It is quick and easy to make, bold in flavour and simply beautiful to look at.
Garden Vegetable Recipes
Tuesday: Sumac Chicken with Marinated Cucumbers
Meet your new favourite chicken recipe! The chicken breast is coated in a sumac and harissa marinade before grilling, so you get a wonderful spicy, tangy and citrusy piece of meat. Paired with a refreshing side of marinated cucumber, it’s the perfect summertime dinner.
Wednesday: Chickpea Pita Sandwiches
We enjoy a tasty shish taouk, that popular Lebanese chicken often wrapped in a warm pita bread. But if you follow a vegetarian diet, that doesn’t mean you can’t partake in its tastiness! This version swaps the meat with seasoned chickpeas, which are then baked and served as a wrap with yogurt sauce. Delicious!
Thursday: Broccoli Tabbouleh with Grilled Bell Peppers and Pork Tenderloin
Featuring bulgur and fresh herbs, tabbouleh makes for a very popular side dish. But we’ve bulked it up by adding broccoli, and served it along with pork tenderloin and topped with an egg, making for a pretty fantastic main.
Friday: Veal and Watermelon Burgers
Summer is watermelon season, but instead of only enjoying it as a refreshing treat, find other ways to utilize it. For example, adding a few slices with some fennel fronds and a squeeze of lime juice can certainly elevate your usual burger into something special.
