4 Healthy Dinner Ideas You Can Actually Make During the Week

Our photo editor, Jenny Westerhoff, is uniquely positioned to surface goop’s best recipes—part of her job involves working with our food editor to document of all the newly-developed creations coming out of the goop test kitchen. Plus, Jenny’s schedule has her frequently crisscrossing the city for shoots and meetings, so when she says that she actually cooked something for dinner on a weeknight, we know it’s achievable for the rest of us. Below, four of her go-tos. (Spoiler alert: she loves anything topped with a boiled egg.)

Jenny's Picks

  • Faux Bibimbap with Crispy Quinoa

    Faux Bibimbap with Crispy Quinoa

    “I don’t know what it is about this recipe but it’s all I crave during the week. I first tried it after I decided I needed a self-imposed break from my go-to Kimchi Fried Rice recipe—and now I’m obsessed.”


  • Cauliflower and Spinach “Risotto”

    Cauliflower and Spinach “Risotto”

    “This was the first recipe I made from goop, and my first foray into cauliflower rice (before you could just buy the pre-riced version at Trader Joe’s, that is) and I’ve been hooked ever since. Plus, I love any recipe with a soft-boiled egg on top.”


  • Chickpea & Kale Curry

    Chickpea & Kale Curry

    “This recipe is technically part of a goop detox—which is when I first made it—but it’s also perfect for when it’s a little chilly outside (bring it on, June gloom!). The serving size is pretty generous so I like to make a big batch and bring it to work for the week. I never get sick of it.”


  • Blackened Mexican Shrimp Salad

    Blackened Mexican Shrimp Salad

    “I remember when we photographed this recipe for the site, I got to take the salad home from set and had it for dinner. (Perk of the job). Salads aren’t usually my evening go-to but this is so good it doesn’t even register as a salad to me. Plus, I almost never buy and cook shrimp for myself so it feels like a treat.”
