A Note From Our Test Cooks
Pan-Seared Cod with Blistered Green Beans and Red Pepper Relish
Become a Meal-Prep Pro
FROM Keith Dresser, Executive Food Editor
I enjoy the process of planning the meals for the week. I sit down with a bunch of recipes that I want to try plus a list of ingredients that I need to use and puzzle things together until I have a menu and shopping list. But I know that for many cooks this process is a headache. That’s why The Ultimate Meal Prep Cookbook will be a welcome addition to any cook’s library. This book is more than a collection of recipes; it features 25 weekly plans that include a menu, a grocery list and pantry list (with plenty of substitution options), plus it lets you know which ingredients and recipes can be made ahead of time.
What I like is the variety that each menu presents (you not going to eat chicken four times in a week!). For example, meal plan 22, which features Steak Tacos (one of my kid’s favorites), a hearty Parmesan Polenta with Eggplant Ragu that can be made totally in advance, a lively Red Curry Coconut Chicken Soup, plus a one-skillet dish of Pan-Seared Cod with Blistered Green Beans and Red Pepper Relish. Armed with this book, you’ll never have to ask the question: “What’s for dinner?” again.
