Creamy Pumpkin Chicken Soup

Thanks to an incredibly short prep time, you can easily start this recipe before you leave for the day and come home to a tasty, home-cooked meal. You can use a can of pumpkin puree or puree your own. Simply combine the main ingredients (pumpkin, chicken, corn, peppers, garlic, and potatoes) with spices, cheese and broth before placing the slow cooker on low. 

Steak, Peppers and Pear Salad

A salad can be a refreshing midweek meal. You can follow this recipe to a T, or simply spice it up with peppers, onions and even a sprinkle of watermelon if you are feeling experimental. Combine pan-seared flank steak with your desired fruits and vegetables, and enjoy.

Herb-Crusted Fish With Ratatouille 

Fish is a healthy source of omega fatty acids, and this recipe with ratatouille on the side is an incredibly healthy meal you should make an autumn staple in your weekly dinners. Basil, eggplant, squash and tomato ratatouille is the perfect complement to flaky, white fish.
