Easy & Quick Weeknight Dinner Recipes

November 13, 2019

Whether you’ve been having an incredibly busy day or are just too tired to whip up something fancy for dinner, we’ve got tons of quick & easy weeknight dinners available at the market.

These recipes are fun to make and enjoy together, while being easy to toss together or even make in advance. Almost all the ingredients can be found right here at Lepp Farm Market, so you won’t have to hunt around searching for them. If you have any questions, be sure to ask, our staff will be happy to help.

Weeknight Meatballs

Don’t let the photo fool you, these meatballs can be used for a lot more than just spaghetti & meatballs (although, that’s a very good option!). You can also use this recipe as a starting point for Asian inspired Sweet & Sour Meatballs – but in that case, you can hold the parmesan cheese and supplement the milk with coconut milk.

Egg Roll in a Bowl 

This easy dinner comes together in 30 minutes or less, making it faster and healthier than takeout!  It has all the delicious elements of an eggroll, minus the deep-fried wrapper. It’s extremely versatile, as you can vary the amount of soya sauce and heat to your liking.  If you want to add more vegetables, then adding a handful of chopped snow peas would also be delicious.

Farmer Sausage & Spinach Gnocchi (One-pan dinner!)

This one-pan dinner is perfect to cook up on a busy weeknight – and it’s incredibly delicious too.

Creamy Mexican Pasta Bake

A creamy, cheesy, taco-flavoured pasta,  a dish any child (or adult) will love!

Stephanie’s Orzo Beef Skillet with Kale

I love that this skillet for a few reasons – no mess, it’s healthy and simple ingredients, and most importantly it’s hearty Italian flavors give this dish the taste of a meal that has cooked in the oven all day.  Finally, when it says to add the kale – do it – the taste and texture are the perfect finishing touch.
