Tortellini with Broccoli
Roasted Salmon with Broccoli and Tomatoes
Salmon is already one of our go-to dishes for a quick weeknight dinner, but this healthy one-pan recipe just moved to the top of the list.

Top your fillet with a zesty mix of lemon juice, honey, and fresh herbs for an unbeatable one-dish meal.
Za'atar Chicken & Lentils
Za'atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend featuring sumac, thyme, oregano, and sesame seeds. Those flavors help flavor the braised chicken perfectly in this healthy one-pot meal.

Pressure Cooker Beef and Broccoli
Enjoy this lightened-up version of a takeout classic in a flash thanks to your trusty pressure cooker.
