Top 10 fall vegetarian recipes
Turn canned pumpkin spice and oranges into wonderful pumpkin spice orange juice, rich in flavor and nutrients. This healthy vegetable smoothie can be prepared in seconds!
I love making homemade cranberry flavor for the holidays. This recipe—which features dried cranberries—is super easy. I adapted it from a recipe from California nutswhich I will present to Hallmark TV Home & Family Show for the holidays.
Who says cold-weather side dishes have to include stuffing and sweet potatoes? I made this super simple vegan side dish that includes one pan and a short list of ingredients, like oats, cranberries, pistachios, and turmeric. However, it is very simple, nutritious and delicious! It’s the perfect party dish. You can even serve it up for a delicious breakfast.
I love the cool-weather combination of butternut squash, kale, barley, and hazelnuts—all wrapped together in this comforting one-dish meal. Prepare it for dinner and pack your leftovers for lunch the next day.
I combine my favorite fall flavors of pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, and pumpkin spice into a nutrient-packed breakfast. One of my favorite easy, healthy, vegan breakfasts is overnight oats. I prepared them in one mason jar the night before, then for breakfast I’m all set. You can enjoy these chilled oats or warm them up for a comforting breakfast. You can even make a few containers of overnight oats at once for multiple breakfasts during the week.
When fresh cranberries are in season, I go crazy! There are so many ways you can brighten up your day with these tart berries. Take this delicious breakfast roll of steel-cut oats, which includes braised cranberries, pears, spices, pecans, and chia seeds. Make a large pot and enjoy for the next few days warm, with a splash of your favorite plant-based milk, for a healthy breakfast on the run.
Nothing brings cold-weather comfort like butternut squash and Brussels sprouts! These vegetables offer plenty of delicious flavor when roasted and paired together, as in this simple farro dish. The golden color of squash is a calling card for its beta-carotene content, and the pungent flavor of Brussels sprouts portends powerful sulfur compounds — both powerful antioxidants linked to health protection.
Fall and winter is a good time to celebrate the bounty of winter squash, which is packed with vitamins A and C, fiber, potassium, and more. One of my favorite ways to cook with zucchini is to simply open them, extract their seeds, and fill the cavity with something scrumptious – like a delicious herbal filling. I featured meatless crumbs (which you can substitute with cooked lentils) in this recipe, along with quinoa, Tuscan herbs, cranberries, and walnuts. It’s super easy to serve as a one-dish meal any night of the week, but it’s nice to have on top of your holiday schedule, too.
If you’re a fan of the “in a mug” trend – where you just put a few ingredients in a mug, blast it, and eat it, you’ll really love this 5-ingredient recipe. Because it is as healthy as it is delicious. It is one of the children’s favorite snacks. I was helping my son Nicholas make this as an after school snack. It’s one of the first recipes he can make on his own. Give it a try and you’ll find a new and easy dessert, snack, or breakfast favourite.
Nothing beats comfort like the combination of spicy cinnamon and sweet apple! One of the healthiest fruit-centric desserts you can make is baked apple, with a thick layer of juicy apples and crunchy whole grains. Each delicious bite is full of fiber and nutrients.
