November Meal Plan Week 1

This month, you can look forward to meal plans from Marta Rivera. Marta is a trained chef, mom of twins, and Army wife – and she is also one of our Simply Recipes recipe testers!

November is in full effect! Also in full effect are the numerous commitments that literally drive us away from our kitchens and the comfort of great home-cooked meals.

Setting the stage for creating wholesome dinners for my family is very important to me. The ability to plan out my meals, prep the ingredients, and cook them quickly means I don’t have to feel guilty when outside activities fill up our schedules.

  • Kale Pasta with Sunflower Cream Sauce

    My kitchen would not be complete without a stash of nut/seed cream (so much so, in fact, I made a video for the pantry reset series.)

Beyond the flavor, these chipotle lentil tacos are fairly fast and most of the time is [...]

  • Sumac Acorn Squash Soup with Parsley Sauce

    This is one of those recipes that I like to push the flavors just a bit. The sumac lends a slightly brighter taste to the acorn squash while the parsley/tahini sauce brings the balance. It’s a perfect partnership that also happens to be vegan (thanks for creamy white beans). I also find this soup is [...]
