You can’t miss this meal plan-really, you just can’t. It includes my favourite burger recipe of all time! Summer means burgers on the barbecue, and the one included in this week’s meal plan is my favourite. If burgers aren’t your thing, then there is plenty here to keep the kids happy, like bacon fried rice or even a quinoa salad. Change things around to fit your family’s tastes, and dinner time will be a breeze!
Since my family doesn’t eat a lot of beef, it has been my mission for years to find a good turkey burger recipe. Some turkey burgers can leave your tastebuds wanting something more, but this recipe is turkey burger nirvana. Subtle heat from wasabi mayo, pickled ginger, sweet but tangy beet ketchup, and crunchy sunflower seeds make this hands down the most loved turkey burger I’ve ever made. I highly recommend you go the extra mile and make the gourmet accompaniments because it’s SO worth it.

Who says healthy has to be boring? Over at Good Life Eats, this guest post by Allison Ruth highlights how easy it is to take a recipe and make it your own. What I love about this one is that if you have a baby six months or older you can even puree some of the sweet potatoes and quinoa with a tablespoon of milk or so and serve. Now how’s that for feeding everyone at once?

This fried rice recipe from Love and Olive Oil looks amazing. I don’t know about you, but I always have leftover rice in the fridge and it seems like the tastiest way to just use it all up. Taylor says he could eat it for “breakfast, lunch, and dinner, or for a snack in between”, and I agree.

I am in love with my John Bishop cookbook, Fresh. There are so many great seasonal recipes in there, and I have loved every single one. This frittata cooks up thick with piles of fresh veggies in it.
