(Family Features) Once the homework is finished and long days in the classroom and at the office are drawing to a close, you’re likely to find hungry loved ones waiting near the kitchen. When busy school nights have you feeling like you’re pinched for time, turn to recipes that are easy to make yet still delicious to enjoy.
For a kid-friendly way to put veggies on the table, look no further than familiar favorites like tacos. These Pickled Beet Tacos put Aunt Nellie’s Sliced Pickled Beets at the center of the meal combined with seasoned black beans and a creamy avocado sauce for a dinner that takes less than an hour to prepare.
An added bonus: This simple recipe makes 10 servings, meaning you can rely on leftovers for lunches throughout the week or a second dinner on an evening when after-school activities leave little time for cooking.
If dinner plans call for a low-stress side dish or lighter meal, serve up Italian Pasta and Bean Salad that requires just 15 minutes of prep and a handful of flavorful ingredients like READ 3 Bean Salad. It’s a perfect complement for a variety of main courses from burgers and grilled chicken to sandwiches and beyond.
