Had a busy day? #SpreadtheMustard with these 9 quick weeknight dinners the whole family will enjoy.
1. Bulgur-Mustard Seed Grain Bowls with Chicken
Nutty bulgur tossed with toasted mustard seeds and topped with tons of flavour make for a delicious filling dish. From the lemon Dijon vinaigrette, creamy avocado and skillet grilled chicken to the peppery arugula… a “flavour” bowl everyone will enjoy.
2. Savoury Slow Cooker Pork Roast with Mustard and Apples
This simple, yet elegant enough for company, pork dish is made even better by browning the roast and onions before adding them to the slow cooker deepens the flavour of this simple yet elegant enough for company pork dish. Apples, herbs and two kinds of mustard ensure the pork has a lovely balance of both sweet and savoury. Thinly sliced leftovers make great sandwiches the next day.
3. Chickpea Stew with Cauliflower & Spinach in a Mustard Sauce
Mustard seed, when popped in hot oil, release a sweet and nutty flavor akin to popcorn. But when ground and turned into a paste with hot water, the same seeds breathe pungent fire. Include the two techniques in the same recipe, and watch a brilliant balance of tastes, textures and colors come alive in every mouthful. Serve a bowl of this stew with crusty-warm slices of baguette or even steamed basmati rice for a quick weekday fare.
4. Zesty Tomato-Glazed Meatloaf
It doesn’t get more classic comfort food than a good old-fashioned meatloaf. With a tangy tomato and Dijon-based glaze, this is sure to become a family favourite, especially when served alongside creamy mashed potatoes. Any leftover meatloaf is great in sandwiches the next day.
5. Mustard, Greens & Parmesan Crusted Pork Medallions with Mustard-Ale Sweet Onion Sauce
The pan-seared pork medallions are topped with creamy garlicy greens and then oven-baked, creating a beautiful golden crust. This dish features three kinds of mustard and highlights the bold flavours of mustard, beer, honey and sweet onion puree in a rich caramel-like sauce.
