huevos rancheros with fresh salsa, avocado and radish

Life can be hard, but mealtime doesn’t have to be. Not when your fridge is probably already stocked with a dozen or so protein-packed parcels just waiting to be transformed into delicious dinners.

From a Cobb-style salad to soft-boiled egg sandwiches to a perfectly spiced and scrambled egg bhurji, these egg recipes represent the best that weeknight dinner recipes can offer: they’re nutritious, delicious, affordable, and they come together in 20 minutes or less.

Pinto beans are an excellent source of fibre and protein, but so are Romano beans and black beans—and they taste just as good in this recipe.[1]

Cobb-style spinach salad with boiled eggs

Ready in: 15 minutes

Why we love it: Egg dishes don’t have to be heavy to be delicious. Salad for dinner is a great way to get in those extra greens you forgot to eat earlier, plus it’s easy to customize with whatever fresh veggies are in the fridge. This boiled egg salad is extra special thanks to shaved Parmesan and crunchy sugar snap peas, which kids will have fun snacking on while you toss it all together.

TIME-SAVING TIP
Purchase pre-washed greens so you can easily grab them throughout the week. You can also wash and cut your spinach and lettuce when you get home from the store, to make salads and sandwiches that much faster. Just be sure to thoroughly dry all greens before they hit the fridge, so they stay fresh and crisp all week long.
