Zucchini and Black Bean Stuffed Sweet Potatoes | Real Simple

Sweet potatoes make for a healthy, flavorful dinner when filled with savory beans and veggies. Cooking the starchy root in the microwave cuts down on cook time, meaning you can have this fiber-packed meal on the table in just 20 minutes. While the potato is cooking, the black bean filling comes together on the stove. Just before serving, top each potato with white Cheddar cheese, and serve with a lime wedge. And be sure to save any leftovers—the veggie-bean mixture would be great tucked inside tacos or on top of nachos.

Roasted Pumpkin Soup With Harissa and Chickpeas

Sugar pumpkins, small, smooth pumpkins that are great for cooking and baking, make for a satisfying and warming soup you’ll want to enjoy all season long. If you can’t find sugar pumpkin, kabocha squash, a sweet Japanese variety of winter squash, can be used in its place. Spicy harissa paste gives the soup a kick, but a dollop of Greek yogurt helps mellow the heat. To freeze, fill gallon-size freezer bags halfway with soup and freeze flat. To thaw, place in a bowl full of warm water for 10 minutes then reheat on the stovetop over medium heat.
