Thursday: Baked salmon with acorn squash

Ready in: 35 min. Serves: 4.
Celebrate the season’s bounty of squash with a sheet-pan dinner loaded with healthful ingredients. (Kitchen Tip: Keeping the skin on when cooking salmon adds flavour and helps prevent it from drying out. Plus, the layer of fat between the skin and the flesh is where most of the heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids are found.) Get this baked salmon with acorn squash recipe.

Ready in: 45 min. Serves: 4.
This two-for-one recipe is a weeknight star (and especially useful for cold nights—the leftover cauliflower can be turned into a delicious soup for lunch on the weekend). Get this cauliflower taco recipe.
