Guy’s Fried Rice

Fried rice is versatile, weeknight dish that’s just as good using fresh ingredients or the week’s leftovers.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings Total time: 25 to 40 minutes

Leesa’s Sheet Pan Salmon, Sweet Potatoes, & Broccoli

I love the current “sheet pan supper” trend, which combines desire to roast everything with the need to get a healthy weeknight dinner on the table quickly. Cooking everything on the same sheet pan allows the veggies to roast in the meat’s juices, which amplifies the flavor.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings Total time: 45 minutes

Guy’s Sheet Pan Mini Meat Loaves & Roasted Veggies

Guy did some solo parenting while I was on a recent business trip, and he had zero problems getting dinner on the table. For this dish, he made four mini meat loaves seasoned with barbecue sauce and surrounded by broccoli, halved cherry tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, and green beans.

Yield: 4 servings Total time: 45 minutes

Roasted Broccoli

Roasted veggies are usually part of our weeknight meals, and roasted broccoli is one of our favorites. Toss small broccoli florets with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast at high heat for 15 minutes.

Curried Udon Noodle Stir-Fry

Erin’s Red Broccoli Salad

Our friends Erin and Matt have a lovely home in the country, surrounded by pastures and horses, and on the occasional holiday, a fireworks display on each horizon. We love gathering with friends there, especially when dishes like this are on the table.

Red onions, grapes, and bacon lend the red color to the otherwise green salad of broccoli, celery, and green onions.

Yield: 8 servings

Roasted Broccoli & Shrimp

Roasting veggies and meat together on one sheet pan makes for a flavorful and easy weeknight supper. The broccoli needs more time to cook than the shrimp, so toss them separately with olive oil and seasonings, and put the broccoli in the oven first. Add the shrimp halfway through.

Yield: 4 servings Total time: 30 minutes

Sausage Broccoli Pasta

Use one pot of boiling water to cook the broccoli, spinach, and the pasta. Brown Italian sausage, and combine everything for a super easy, satisfying weeknight meal.

Yield: 6 servings Total time: 30 minutes

Broccoli Salad

At our neighborhood potluck picnic last summer, this was the dish that everyone was raving about. A few days later, I came across the recipe in a magazine.

Blanch broccoli and add grapes, chopped celery, raisins, and sunflower seeds.
