MONDAY Roasted Carrot Harissa Soup
by @Andrealoretdemola

Turn a sheet pan of roasted carrots into a spicy bowl of hot soup with the help of a blender, coconut milk, harissa, and plenty of vegetable stock. Serve this soup with [vegan] grilled cheese or garlic bread and garnish with tender herbs, chili oil, and toasted nuts and seeds. 
TUESDAY Cacio e Pepe
by @Thefeedfeed

If a bowl of pasta could taste like a warm hug, it would definitely be this. Cacio e Pepe, which literally translates to "cheese and pepper," is as simple and easy as pasta dishes come. The starchy pasta water imparts a ton of delicious flavor into the dish while creating an effortlessly simple sauce. Extra Parm, please!

WEDNESDAY Teriyaki Salmon Bowls with Lemon Tahini Sauce
by @Threebirdsonestove

Teriyaki Salmon Bowls with Lemon-Tahini Sauce are a perfect weeknight go-to when you’re looking for a hearty, healthy, comforting meal throughout the cold weather months. A serving of slightly sweet, creamy, sticky coconut rice is the perfect base with umami-packed, low and slow-cooked salmon, savory charred broccoli, and a slightly tangy, nutty, toasty lemon-tahini drizzle.
THURSDAY Chicken Thighs with Honey Miso Turnips
by @Thefeedfeed

This dish starts by searing chicken thighs until golden. Turnips are added to the pan drippings along with an umami-rich pantry sauce sauce with miso, honey and chili. The whole pan is put in the oven to continue to simmer. About 20 minutes later, what emerges is perfectly brown, juicy chicken, tender turnips and a silky, savory sauce.

A staple in mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine- this delicious roasted bell pepper dip is great served alongside fresh veggies and pita. The addition of walnuts gives this dip a delightful nutty flavor.
