Sweet Potato With Pecans

5 Fall Recipes Made to Satisfy

Goodbye summer, and hello fall. As we trade our tank tops for sweaters, it’s only reasonable to transition our food. Gone are the days of watermelon and freshly barbequed hot dogs, and here are the days of soups and cozy casseroles. If you’re unsure of what to make, read on for autumn inspirations!

  1. 1. Instant Pot Butternut Squash Soup

    This gluten-free, vegan soup is rich and creamy without any dairy, and the spices warm you from the inside out. While adding apples to a soup may sound strange, it adds a layer of complexity and pairs perfectly with the squash. Feel free to add a touch of heavy cream to the finished product for additional creaminess, and if things taste a bit flat, add a bit of salt to make things pop. This recipe is for an Instant Pot but has stovetop instructions as well. Check it out here!

  2. 2. Chicken and Brussel Sprouts Sheet Pan Dinner

    Sheet pan dinners — while delicious all year long — are especially great in the fall when hardier vegetables are ripe. This recipe is perfect for those with a bit of a sweet tooth as it incorporates maple syrup as well. Don’t break out the regular table syrup, though! This is a dinner worth splurging a bit on. Feel free to customize your sheet dinner by adding additional vegetables, but keep in mind that the cooking time may change. Check it out here!

  3. 3. Instant Pot Cauliflower Potato Soup

    As mentioned, soup is the perfect fall food, and this soup is an example of that. The fish sauce may not sound too appetizing, but creates a beautiful umami flavour. The soup doesn’t taste fishy and fills you right up. The bacon adds a lot of salt, so be sure to taste as you go. If you choose not to use bacon, saute the onions in butter and add a bit extra fish sauce. You may also need to add extra salt. Check it out here!

  4. 4. Spiced Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

    Is it really fall if we don’t eat anything pumpkin flavored? This casserole has a long chilling time, but is so worth it for a warm and cozy breakfast. Don’t be afraid of the long ingredients list, as the majority of it are spices. For an extra feeling of luxury, make your own whipped cream as a topping. Check it out here!

  5. 5. Spinach Pomegranate Salad

    With both spinach and pomegranates in season, this salad is perfect for warmer days where you long for summer. The dressing can easily be elevated by swapping it out for a homemade one, such as this pomegranate balsamic vinaigrette. To make it a bit more filling, feel free to add avocados or other healthy fats. Check it out here!
