Fall is almost upon us and you can already find pumpkin spice everything, and Halloween costumes and decorations at all of the stores. Many people are fall crazy, and I may be one of them. There’s something about fall that is ultimately cozy that I can’t resist. Cozy scarves, sweaters, and boots, and warm hearty meals and tasty drinks are just some of the reasons why fall is my favourite season.
To ring in the new season I’ve rounded up 7 cozy fall recipes I can’t wait to try. I’ve already tried out 3 of them, and you can stay tuned to my IG Stories and Facebook to see what I think of the other 4 fall recipes.
I’ve been getting really into smoothies lately, and I have always loved pumpkin flavoured anything in the fall, naturally, I couldn’t resist trying out this pumpkin pie smoothie recipe.
I eyeballed the ingredients while making it and think I added a little bit too much vanilla greek yogurt. It was tasty, but I think I overpowered the pumpkin flavour with the yogurt. I’ll keep tweaking it until I get it just right.
This fall recipe sounds uh-mazing, and so simple too! Matt isn’t the biggest fan of oatmeal, but I’m going to try and force feed it to him this weekend. It may be a lot of sugar for breakfast, but sometimes you just gotta live.
So far this is my favourite recipe that I’ve tried. It has just the right hint of pumpkin and is so so good. The recipe also comes with instructions for whipped pumpkin butter which I haven’t tried yet, but I bet it’d be delicious.
Believe it or not, I’ll take my pumpkin bread over my pumpkin spiced latte any day. I have all the ingredients ready and plan to make it this week. Stay tuned to my IG Stories and Facebook to see if it’s just as good as the Starbucks one.
I tried out this recipe on Monday, and it was quite tasty. It’s definitely a healthier sweet potato recipe without any added brown sugar, and only a little bit of honey and maple syrup. I would recommend using yams, instead of sweet potatoes to give it an even sweeter taste.
I’ve fallen in love with roasted veggies for dinner. It’s such a simple way to cook. Mix things together, toss it in a dish, and roast that shit. I’ll probably pair this with some sort of rice or risotto, or maybe some mashed potatoes.
No fall recipe list would be complete without a tasty, cozy soup. Normally I gravitate towards tomato and red pepper, or butternut squash soups for fall, but pregnancy heartburn has me thinking tomato and red pepper isn’t the best idea, and Matt isn’t the biggest fan of butternut squash, although I am working on him! That’s why I chose this delicious sounding Carrot Garlic Soup.
I’m a big fan of garlic, and love that this recipe is totally vegan, and gluten free too! Although I’ll probably end up adding some croutons, or dipping a tasty grilled cheese in it, the recipe works great for all the vegans and gluten free eaters out there!
I’d love to hear what your favourite fall recipe is. Leave me a comment below.
