Weeknight Rescue//Week 47//November 2021

Instant Pot Farro Risotto with parmesan and kale in a shallow grey bowl

This week’s menu brings in plenty of fall flavors, cozy dishes, and a few simple staples to round out the week. Side note: I’m having a fun Thanksgiving giveaway over on Instagram, so head there to enter (the deadline is Sunday night). Enjoy!

SAVORY PEAR & GRUYERE 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, Gruyere, and pears, and bake into a flaky tart. Pair with a simple arugula or mixed green salad.  

TURKEY TACO SALAD WITH CUMIN LIME DRESSING

This is a satisfying, crunchy chopped salad tossed with old-school turkey taco meat. Top with crumbled tortilla chips and you’ve got a main dish meal on your hands. Finish with a plate of chilled grapes.

BEEF AND MUSHROOM BLENDED BURGER

I usually associate burgers with summer barbecues, but the craving can strike any time of year. This is a delicious fix…a healthier spin on standard a burger that can be cooked on the stoveyop. Need a side dish? These sweet potatoes are an excellent match for the burger.

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

Slice of Sweet Potato Enchilada

You can’t get much more simple than this recipe (with the exception of my 2-ingredient 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 (which also happens to be the very first recipe I ever posted on this blog!).  

HEALTHY BREAKFAST TOAST WITH ALL THE TOPPINGS

I made a few delicious toasts this past week (one with almond butter and figs, another with mushrooms and kale) so figured I’d share some toast inspo. You’ll find loads of ideas here or feel free to come up with your own combos.
