You Absolutely Must Make These 7 Exciting Dinners
By Cooking Panda
We don’t ever want you to stress when pondering the age old question, “What should I make for dinner tonight?” Dinner should always be a source of excitement, and we’re here to make it easy for you. As a sign of our undying friendship, we rounded up seven solid recipes that, yes, you should absolutely make for dinner this week. You’re welcome.
Want a super quick dinner? Stuff an avocado half with shrimp and mango. It’s that simple! If you want to go a little more elaborate, you can totally bake or grill the avocado half first for next-level deliciousness.
A quick vegetarian meal that is super healthy but tastes incredibly decadent.
Lamb shanks are affordable and so tender and delicious when braised. But traditional braising methods can require a lot of time and attention, so keep it simple and use a slow cooker instead.
Got some inexpensive whiskey that you just haven’t been able to finish? Turn it into an excellent steak sauce. If you’re on a budget or steak isn’t your thing, you can swap it out for ground beef patties, chicken, tofu… whatever you’re in the mood for. This is a pretty versatile sauce.
This is not a drill, and we’re not joking. This recipe is not only cheap and way easier to make than traditional gnocchi, but it’s also adapted from world-renowned chef David Chang. The ramen noodles give it that extra classy zing, and the vegetables will make you feel like you aren’t dying on the inside when you eat this. But forget about all that, because it’s super delicious.
Ok, this isn’t exactly the healthiest of dinners either, but it’s totally worth it. If you need more veggies to justify eating (delicious) loaded fries as a meal, dump some shredded cabbage and quick pickled carrots and daikon on top. There. Better?
If you’re going to have a salad for dinner (perhaps to atone for the ramen gnocchi or Vietnamese fries?), you might as well make it with arugula, hazelnuts and pears. If you need more protein, top it with any kind of sliced pork, chicken or your veggie protein of choice. Use leftovers, or cook your protein in this tangy, savory raspberry sauce.
