Fall is the start of the cold season, and it is the best time to stay indoors, curl up and have a hot beverage while reading a book or enjoying a movie. It is also an excellent opportunity to up the ante and whip up hot stews and get creative with seasonal produce which is not available in any other season. You have to admit there is something about visiting the farmer’s market and find squash, pomegranates, pears, apples and more healthy options available. They get your creative juices flowing.
Fall is the best season to whip up delightful vegetarian delights. Numerous meatless recipes will not only tickle your taste buds but also satisfy your nutrient-hungry body. The choices out there are endless, so we have rounded two which we think will please your palate and satisfy your cravings for fantastic fall plant-based food.
Nothing beats having a hot bowl of soup on a cold and gloomy day so feast on the Creamy Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup. A delight for people who love mushroom, the rich and creamy consistency will wake your senses up, yet it is not too heavy on the stomach. It is the perfect moment of pause before all the Christmas gluttony begins. It is best to ease your way into the nonstop eating that goes on during the holiday season, after all.
This is a take on everyone’s favorite dish using something that is ubiquitous during the fall season, pumpkins! With pumpkin puree, you will be able to make a creamy yet light sauce without adding too much cheese. The recipe is flexible, and you can make the pumpkin puree yourself or opt for organic canned pumpkin if you do not have the time. The roasted veggies add a more flavor to the dish and not to mention, make it healthier too. Opt for less sinful pasta choices made of whole wheat or those without the gluten.
Who says steaks have to be sinful? Use aromatic butternut squash, and you will be less guilty of your steak. Apply the same butter-basting techniques to the slabs of healthy veggies, and you will have a hearty meal. The sauce, made of butter, lemon juice, salt and, pepper, gives this dish a taste you will continually look for.
Miss the cuisine you feasted on while in Tokyo? You do not have to look too far. You can create the Japanese favorite with a healthier flair. The next time you’re out, sourcing fresh produce, be on the lookout for napa cabbage or bok choy. This soup will warm you up on a cold autumn day with its ginger fragrance and umami flavored miso.
