IDCO Weekly Menu Plan

We blinked and the month of February is already halfway through. 2021 is somehow flying by, and most weeks, we’re just lucky to keep up. To help bring some calm to the chaos, we decided to dedicate this week’s menu plan to easy, one-pot meals that require super minimal clean-up. These are dinners, brunch items and baked goods you can make in a single pot, pan, or skillet, saving you time (and sanity) along the way. The one-pot Gnocchi with a Mushroom and Blue Cheese Sauce happens to be our personal favorite, but we’ll let you be the judge.

 

WEEKNIGHT MENU FAVORITES

Chipotle Vegetarian Chili

 

Who doesn’t love a bowl of chili in the middle of February? Answer: no one. But while traditional chili recipes make ground beef the star, this one let’s the veggies take center stage. In place of meat, you’ll use fire-roasted tomatoes, chipotle peppers, and not one but two types of beans. Add corn and a diced bell pepper to amp up the veggies, and this meal is total comfort in a bowl.

Mushroom Gnocchi with a Blue Cheese Sauce

 

Ok, here’s the deal. This rich and creamy gnocchi dish is everything you need on a cold winter’s night. It’s tossed in a decadent blue cheese mushroom sauce,and topped with fresh parsley and parmesan for good measure. Use a deep non-stick skillet or braiser, and this dish is a one-and-done meal with easy clean-up.

Chicken Enchilada Skillet

 

Chicken enchiladas are great, but have you ever tried making them in a skillet? This recipe simplifies the whole process with all the ingredients tossed in one pan and baked to bubbly cheese perfection. We love that this recipe is a full meal in and of itself, with no extra sides required. Although, we wouldn’t blame you if you added tortilla chips into the equation.

Greek Sheet Pan Chicken Souvlaki and Potatoes

 

You know we love sheet pan meals around here. So much so that we dedicated an entire post to the subject. This one from Half Baked Harvest is a Greek-inspired take on a classic chicken and potatoes meal that everyone will love. Start by marinating your chicken, then adding your ingredients to the pan, and done. Your meal will bake for about 45 minutes total, and the clean-up situation couldn’t be easier.

 

 

TO BAKE

Rosemary Lemon No-Knead Bread

 

In the early days of the pandemic, bread baking was everyone’s favorite pastime. While it eventually became a bit of a running joke on the Internet, we’d argue it’s still a fun way to spend a Saturday. *Enter* this rosemary and lemon no-knead bread from our favorites at Williams Sonoma. It’s a perfect recipe for beginners and requires (you guessed it) just one single pot. Put in some prep-work the day before, let it rise overnight, and bake in your favorite dutch oven. It’s a time commitment, but also totally worth it.

 

TO BRUNCH

Vegan Shakshuka

 

Brunch is the meal we look forward to all week long, so it better deliver. Luckily, we came across this recipe from Jessica in the Kitchen and it checks all the boxes. This vegan take on a classic shakshuka uses tofu eggs, but it’s every bit as tasty. You’ll cook everything in a single deep-dish skillet for a meal that comes together in about 45 minutes. Serve with crusty bread for dipping and a hot side of coffee.

 

TO SIP

 

Make a London Fog Latte at home with recipe from Oh How Civilized.

London Fog

 

We usually like to include a cocktail in our menu, but this week we’re mixing things up. Because when we came across this creamy tea drink that you can easily make in your own kitchen, we knew it had to be included. You’ll start with an Earl Grey tea base and add warmed milk, vanilla extract, and some sweetener to your liking. Want to get really fancy? Top with a sprinkling of dried lavender and have the cafe experience at home.
