Lately, I’ve been experimenting with more vegetarian/vegan recipes. Since the new year I’ve been able to stick with doing 1-2 meatless dinners per week. I’m testing out various recipes, but need them to be quick and easy and done in 30 minutes. These lentil sloppy joes were a hit with the whole family, and I definitely recommend them if you’re venturing into more meatless meals. It only takes slightly longer than using turkey or ground beef.

Lemon, garlic and shrimp is such a classic combination. This was a really easy dinner that came together in just over 20 minutes.  Enjoy as is for a low carb meal, or pair with some cooked rice or quinoa for a more substantial meal. Its a very simple dish, and very light and fresh. You get some tanginess from the lemon and a bit of richness from the Parmesan cheese.

I served it over quinoa and the whole gang loved it!  It would also be delicious with any type of rice, or even riced cauliflower.  There are some juice drippings in the pan when its done, which is fantastic, because then you can drizzle a bit of it over each serving.

Sweet, delicious teriyaki sauce. I could smother it on so many things. Over rice, over stir fry, mix it with beef for a beef teriyaki. Definitely a lot of options!  To date, I haven’t found a store bought teriyaki sauce that tastes very good. I find many of them to be runny and very salty.  This 10-minute teriyaki sauce is thick, sweet, not too salty, and reminds me of what you would get at a good Japanese restaurant.

 

I love how easy it is to make, and it makes a good sized portion, so depending on what you need it for, you could be left with extra. I find the sauce serves around 4 people, whether it be mixed with beef or chicken, drizzled over rice, or used over top of a stir fry.  In the photo below, I used the sauce with some thinly shaved raw beef. I boiled the beef in water for a few minutes until it was cooked, then drained the beef and tossed it in some of the sauce. It was a hit with the whole family!

I love 1-pot meals. When its a delicious dish with minimal clean-up, its a big win! Weeknight meals can be a challenge when you want to come up with something different than the norm. This honey garlic salmon with quinoa is different than some of the dishes I usually make, and it came out really delicious! So its definitely going to stay in the rotation.
