When selecting recipes for our meal plans, we opt for those that keep prep and cooking time to a minimum. Weeknights are tight, we know (oh how we know)! With the help of the slow cooker, a little ahead-of-time prep and a handful of key convenience foods, this week’s menu features some particularly easy recipes that will have you and your family fed and the kitchen spic-and-span before you know it.
Here’s this week’s meatless meal plan:
Warm Roasted Butternut Squash Salad from Minimalist Baker // This simple yet hearty salad couldn’t be more perfect for fall – or a Monday, for that matter.
One-Skillet Sweet Potato Burrito Bowls from Chelsea’s Messy Apron // Tender rice, black beans and sweet potatoes cook up in a single skillet. It’s plenty delicious without the cheese, but with that melty layer on top? Mmmm.
Chickpea & Rice Soup from Kitchen Treaty // This comforting meatless take on chicken and rice soup is easy, tasty, and, if you happen to be trying to kick a case of the sniffles, it’s a bit of an elixir too. We usually supplement with some crusty bread and/or a green salad.
Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Chili with Porter // Beer and chili: BFFs. This simple and smoky fall chili brews up in the slow cooker all day for minimal weeknight work.
Cheese Tortellini Bake with Roasted Broccoli // Hello Friday! I can’t think of a better way to usher in the weekend than with this easy cheesy pasta bake.
