Easy Fall Dinner Recipes Meal Plan

This week’s easy fall dinner recipes meal plan includes stuffed squash, chili, soup, a cous cous salad and a farro salad.

My kitchen cupboards have been driving me crazy lately! Have you ever felt like the way you originally organized things just isn’t working at all and you have to start over? Well, that’s how I felt this week and took a full day emptying out all my cupboards, organizing, and restocking.  It literally took me all day because of course I also still had to feed my kids, guide them in play activities and nurse Cash, but in the end it was worth it.  I discovered a lot of foods hiding that I forgot I even had and attempted to use them (quinoa, farro, lentils and couscous) in my meals this week.  All of these recipes have a filling yet healthy quality and are great for before, during or even after your Thanksgiving celebrations this week. I hope you enjoy them and maybe they can help you clear some food items out of your pantry too! Click here for this week’s grocery shopping list and enjoy this easy Fall dinner recipes meal plan!

My sister made this for dinner this week and it had such great depth of flavor, we all loved it.  She used sweet potato instead of butternut squash and coconut oil instead of olive oil.  The leftovers tasted great and I will definitely be making this again in the future.

Ingredients: olive oil, quinoa, vegetable broth, onion, apple, cheddar, cranberries, sage, walnuts, egg, acorn squash, butter, maple syrup.

I love the presentation of this beautiful dish! This dish is a labor of love but in my opinion worth it.

Squash and Apple Soup from Floating KitchenEasy Fall Dinner Recipes : Squash and Apple Soup + 4 other delicious vegetarian recipes in this week’s Fall meal plan | Rainbow Delicious

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 40 minutes Total Time: 50 minutes

Ingredients: unsalted butter, onion, butternut squash, apple, vegetable stock, sage leaves, black pepper, allspice, cream, olive oil, halloumi cheese.

This soup turnd out so deliciously! I was a little disappointed because I scoured high and low to try to find halloumi this week but literally everywhere was out of halloumi! I think there must be a halloumi shortage where I live right now so next time I see some I’m going to stock up! I used shaved parmesan instead and in the end the dish was still so so good.

Lunchbox Couscous from Cook RepublicEasy Fall Dinner Recipes : Lunchbox Couscous + 4 other delicious vegetarian recipes in this week’s Fall meal plan | Rainbow Delicious

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients: couscous, salt, sweet paprika, vinegar, butter, dried thyme, dried rosemary, dried garlic granules, lime, spinach, spring onion, sun-dried tomatoes, {goat’s milk} feta cheese, black olives, roasted pumpkin, olive oil.

For some reason I didn’t love this dish, however the rest of my family loved it. I think my slight dislike is because there were sun dried tomatoes in it; I used to love sun dried tomatoes but then I ate too much of them a while back and now they sort of disturb me.  It was an easy dish to make, although I left out the rosemary and used roasted butternut squash instead of pumpkin.
