There’s only one thing better than crisp air, vibrant foliage and comfortable sweaters, and that’s hearty fall veggies! The colder weather allows us to reap the benefits of this colorful season, and enjoy pumpkins, apples, squash, and so much more. And the best part is that they’re all healthy too! They are high in fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants. Especially pumpkin, as it’s one of the best sources of beta-carotene which promotes healthy vision and cell growth!
As the earth begins to grow colder, it also releases its hearty bounty for us to enjoy – and you can bet we enjoy it! Below are 10 of our most loved recipes to enjoy this season:
Last week, I saw a carton of pumpkin spice coconut milk from So Delicious at the store and decided to buy it, thinking I could use it in my coffee or to make a festive hot drink. Then over the weekend, I was in the mood to make a special indulgent breakfast and spotted the recipe for pumpkin spice pancakes on the side of the carton, so I tried it. Usually I expect recipes on the side of cartons to have about 2 ingredients and 2 steps (combine one premade ingredient with another and bake), but this actually was a full recipe from scratch, and it turned out DELICIOUS! Paired with scrambled eggs with rosemary and Daiya non-dairy cheddar, it made a complete gluten-free, dairy-free indulgent breakfast!
Looking for a quick, tummy-warming recipe for the weekend? Try this hearty and seasonal pumpkin chili, courtesy of Go Dairy Free. Naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and nut-free, it can also be made vegan by replacing the ground turkey with black beans or your favorite root vegetable. We love recipes that are easy, healthy, and hearty!
It’s Fall and that means it’s pumpkin season! I love pumpkin season, mainly because I love pumpkin-flavored sweets, but also because it conjures up images of golden leaves falling from trees, and cheesy as this may sound, because Fall is when you can start feel the vibration of the holiday season in the air. Things are changing in the Fall – kids are going back to school, colleagues are rejuvenating after summer vacations, and people are getting ready for colder weather and big family/friend get-togethers. I’ve already broken out the hot cocoa and pumpkin-flavored coffee, and now it’s time for Fall recipes!
