Thinking about what to eat every week can be quite a challenge. To ensure that you don’t put the same dishes on the table every week, we like to inspire you with handy weekly menus. That citrus is only intended for sweet recipes is, of course, complete nonsense. Because fruit like orange, lemon, lime or mandarin makes us happy in savory recipes.
They also contain a hefty dose of vitamins and antioxidants. That’s why we’re incorporating citrus into our dinner this week. Are you in?

The best of both worlds: since we love burritos and Thai food, Culy’s Winnie decided to combine both cuisines. And in the form of burritos. So no cheese and black beans this time, but fresh lime chicken, coconut milk and sriracha. Also check here how you can best roll it.

On to perhaps the most famous citrus fruit in our dinner: the lemon. The seasoning in many pasta dishes. Sometimes as a juice, sometimes as a grater, and in this case both. Add chili and parmesan to that and you know for sure that this will be a successful dinner.

Whoever says that gazpacho can only be eaten in the summer has not yet tasted the following recipe. In addition to mandarin, the cold soup is also given a fresh twist by kaki fruit: the winter replacement for tomato. Serve it with bread and make enough: since it’s served cold, you just put it back on the table the next afternoon.

Soup with pasta: who doesn’t like it? And if that pasta is also tortelloni, then at least our evening can’t go wrong. We knew that lemon, spinach and dill is an unparalleled combination . But it really doesn’t get any better than this soup.

When talking about citrus recipes, let’s not forget the grapefruit . And it really flourishes in the next dish. An additional advantage: the fresh color of both the grapefruit and the pomegranate make it very nice to look at.

Weekend so probably some extra time in the kitchen. And the good news: that time is mainly in the waiting, because this super juicy orange chicken requires little preparation. Serve it with some rice and pak choi and you have the perfect recipe with citrus for a Saturday evening.
