If you're feeling a little uninspired lately, you aren't alone — we call it the springtime slump. It seems to peak around dinnertime, when the contents of our fridges and pantries just look so...boring. Injecting a new recipe or two into the repertoire just doesn't seem to cut it. Instead, we're here with a whole week of weeknight-friendly dinner menus, with options for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free eaters, too. Ready to shake up your weekly dinner rotation?
Menu 1: A Light Spring Pasta Meal
This creamy-yet-light spaghetti recipe is simultaneously sophisticated and absurdly fast and easy, and the crunchy, dill-flecked salad keeps well, so you can eat the leftovers for lunch the next day.
Menu 4: A Simple, Spiced Indian Supper (Vegetarian)
This unfussy bean and tomato stew will fill the whole house with the scent of onion, ginger and spices bubbling on the stove. While it simmers, make a turmeric-spiced yellow rice and cool yogurt raita to serve alongside.
