Other than wearing comfy sweaters and breaking out the slipper socks, our favorite thing about autumn is finally making fall recipes again. After all, spiralized salads
galore don't really make sense once the temperature starts to drop. Instead, we're swapping our spiked seltzer
for slow-cooked cocktails
and making as much pumpkin bread
as our ovens can handle. You'll fall for fall after tasting these 20 recipes.
Healthy Pumpkin Smoothies:
Embrace autumn by sipping on a healthy pumpkin smoothie in the morning, topped with nuts and dried fruit for extra crunch.
Pumpkin Chai Latte:
A few sips of this pumpkin spice chai latte will relax you to your core. Use non-dairy milk to make it vegan.
Baked French Toast:
Spend more time snuggled beneath your warm covers instead of by the stovetop. Just pop it in the oven when you wake up, and you'll be breaking fast in style without having to lift a finger.
Crescent Roll Corucopia:
Prepare a bounteous cheeseplate that's crowned by a crescent roll cornucopia for your next fall dinner party.
One-Pot Roasted Tomato Soup:
Grilled cheese and homemade tomato soup will take your chilly fall afternoons to a new height of cozy relaxation.
Slow Cooker Baked Beans:
Smokey, slow-cooked baked beans will make your house smell incredible as they simmer away. Better yet? They're vegan!
The Best Roasted Sweet Potatoes:
You might be surprised at how decadent sweet potatoes taste when you cook them just-so. They're deliciously creamy even without butter... but add some, and you'll be in heaven.
Instant Pot Tuscan White Bean Soup:
Make this soup two ways. Use a veggie broth base and set half of the soup aside, then add sausage to make a hearty version for the carnivores in the family.
Big-Batch, Pressure-Cooked Chili:
For tailgating, family get-togethers, or a week's worth of lunches, nothing beats the protein-punch of pressure cooker vegetarian chili.
Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup:
Fresh herbs perk up this chicken noodle soup, so you get the rich flavor of slow cooking along with some bright notes thanks to the herbs.
Paleo Shepherd's Pie:
Perfectly paleo shepherd's pie uses mashed cauliflower instead of potato for a creamy-yet-crisp crust.
4-Ingredient Vegan Baked Ziti:
Stay full and warm from the inside out with a piping hot tray of vegan baked ziti. The key is a special trick that puts dinner on the table in less than an hour.
Easy Pancetta Pasta:
Comfort food doesn't have to take hours on the stove. This savory pasta dish hits all the right notes and comes together in minutes.
Caramel Apple Pie Nachos:
Even if you don't like to bake, you can still put out a show-stopping dessert. Pile dehydrated apples on a plate, then drizzle with caramel, sprinkle with streusel, and dollop with whipped cream for good measure.
Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies:
Upgrade the basic by using only the best ingredients, almost as much chocolate as dough, and finishing things off with a sprinkle of salt to bring out the rest of the flavors.
Pumpkin Spice Toffee:
A blend of warming pumpkin pie spices adds some nuance to this classic toffee.
