Plus, fall meal prep should be fun and simple!
Here are 5 fall recipes to add to your meal planner.
It wouldn’t be the fall season without some delicious soups! Soups are a great choice for fall because they’re warm, filling, and you can easily make it last for multiple meals throughout the week. This particular soup from A Head of Thyme is great if you’re vegetarian or have thought about doing “Meatless Mondays” but have never taken the plunge.
You’ll also love that this one has a pretty low-maintenance ingredient list, so you won’t be running all over town looking for a bunch of obscure spices or ingredients. And, with only 10 minutes of prep time required, you can’t go wrong.
Now, if the rest of these fall meal recipes are too basic for you, or if you’re looking to up your game in the kitchen, this one from The Modern Proper is worth giving a shot! This is also a great way to use up whatever veggies you have on hand that you’re worried will go bad soon.
While it might look a little intimidating at first, once you try making it once or twice you’ll be a pro and have a great recipe that will surely be on your regular meal plan rotation. Plus, you can’t get more fall than a hearty meal with chicken, veggies, and potatoes. There’s nothing better than a warm meal on a crisp fall day!
Is it REALLY fall unless you’ve had something with pumpkin? That’s debatable, but I would lean towards no. This is a must for the pumpkin obsessed looking for fall meal ideas! If you’re looking for the pumpkin taste but your wallet and diet are telling you that stopping at Starbucks every morning is a bad idea…this can be a good substitute.
With this recipe from the Pioneer Woman you can cook this in your dutch oven and you’ll have dinner in slightly under 30 minutes. You can’t beat that, right? If you like to add your own spin to your recipes, feel free to top it off with pumpkin seeds, sour cream, avocado, or anything else of your choosing.
Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without a cozy fall drink. This one from Port and Fin will satisfy both the cinnamon lovers and the maple syrup lovers. The ingredient list is pretty straightforward, you’ll just need, coffee, milk, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Of course, you can also add a cinnamon stick for garnish if you so choose, but totally not required.
This is the perfect drink to enjoy after a long day at work or as you’re relaxing in your favorite sweatpants on the weekend.
What better way to end this list than with a fall dessert that just screams fall! This is another great addition to your fall meal prep recipes! You’ll love this pumpkin brownie from The Cookie Rookie as it’s a great way to use up any canned pumpkin that you might have on hand from your other fall recipes.
Plus, you’ll love that the ingredient list is fairly minimal as you’ll just need, brownie mix, canned pumpkin, cream cheese, chocolate chips, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. This could also be a great choice if you have any fall parties or events where you need to bring something but have no idea what to make.
