This week’s menu brings in plenty of fall flavors, cozy dishes, and a few simple staples to round out the week. Enjoy!

SAVORY PEAR & GRUYÈRE TART

I love this easy, elegant sweet/savory tart for a light supper, lunch, or brunch. Roll out store-bought puff pastry, top with caramelized onions, Gruyère, and pears, and bake into a flaky tart. Pair with a simple arugula or mixed green salad.  

TURKEY TACO SALAD WITH CUMIN LIME DRESSING

I just made this salad for dinner last night and it was as good as always. Since I was just cooking for two this time, I left half the salad undressed and stored it in the fridge for another meal. Crumbled tortilla chips go on just before serving, making it crunchy and satisfying.

BROTHY TORTELLINI WITH SAUSAGE AND KALE

This dish lands somewhere between a pasta and a soup. It’s satisfying and nourishing, with everything you need for a balanced supper right in one bowl. Do up some garlic bread on the side if you’re in the mood.

INSTANT POT FARRO RISOTTO

This cozy, nourishing supper happens to be vegetarian, but you won’t miss the meat. Make it in the Instant Pot if you have one or on the stove top if you don’t (instructions are in the headnote of the recipe).

4-INGREDIENT SWEET POTATO ENCHILADAS

You can’t get much more simple than this recipe (with the exception of my black bean soup). With just four ingredients, it’s a snap to make and even your veggie-phobic family members might give it a thumbs up. Serve it with this salad on the side if you want some crunch!

INSTANT POT APPLESAUCE WITH CINNAMON AND GINGER

I’m loving the abundance and variety of apples I’ve seen in markets this fall. This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy them… a big batch of applesauce that’s a snap to make. If you don’t care for ginger, just leave it out. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, check out this recipe instead. 

HEALTHY BREAKFAST TOAST WITH ALL THE TOPPINGS

I think you can pile pretty much anything on a slice of toast and call it breakfast (or snack or lunch). Here you’ll find loads of toast-topping inspo (or feel free to come up with your own combos).
