This week's meal plan has an easy spring risotto, marinated bean salad and a festive carrot cake blondie!  Start the week off with juicy chicken thighs and a spring pea risotto, followed by a baked cod and radish salad. Midweek start marinating a chickpea and lentil salad that can double as dinner salad or quick desk lunch. We then end the week with lamb patties served over couscous and carrot cake blondies.  

If you make any of these dishes, snap a photo and tag us #feedfeed @thefeedfeed on Instagram for a chance to be featured. Happy cooking!

MEAL PREP

Prep: Get a head start this week by salting and seasoning the chicken thighs the night before. This will ensure that the chicken is seasoned throughout and extremely juicy. The chickpea and black lentil salad can be made ahead up two 48 hours and tastes better once everything has marinated for a few hours in the dressing.

Tuesday Baked Cod with Lemon Parsley Panko and Radish Salad
Wednesday Chickpea and Black Lentil Salad
Thursday Lamb Patties with Couscous and Apricots

Friday:  Mix and match the lamb patties with leftover chickpea salad. Use any leftover risotto to make arancini, or sprinkle the couscous into some leafy greens for a hearty dinner salad.
