My kids eat a lot of chicken and turkey for dinner and Mondays we eat plant-based dinners, but every so often I like to mix it up and offer them something different. This week I made Maple Dijon Glazed Pork Tenderloin, a recipe I was first introduced to from my fabulous mother in law. I had no idea how they would react to it, but to my surprise, both of my little ones devoured it and my four year old asked for seconds! It’s a simple meal that takes 10 minutes to prepare and cooks for a little over an hour. So if you get home early enough during the week, it’s an easy weeknight meal.

Toddler Twist: If you’re serving a little one that is not quite old enough to chew well, blend one serving of pork and rice (or oatmeal) adding a tsp of the glaze and one tsp of water at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Also consider adding in some pureed broccoli for a vitamin boost.
