When the leaves start changing colours and the temperatures drop (more like plummet in my part of the world!), there is nothing more comforting than indulging in what nature does best at this time of the year: sweet, brightly-coloured fruits and vegetables that lend themselves beautifully to intoxicating autumn spices, to warm the cockles of our hearts!
The best thing about fall produce is that not only is it utterly delicious when combined with the right ingredients, as you’ll see in the recipes below (just wait); it’s also really good for you. That vividly orange pumpkin we enjoy so much in the chilly autumn months? It’s chock full of vitamin A and beta-carotene. Those apples that taste so incredible in crumbles and crisps? Filled to the brim with fibre that keeps you fuller for longer and brilliant for your teeth. As if anyone needed an excuse to gorge on these awesome dishes, am I right?!
Here are 30 delicious recipes for fall, that’ll have you using your favourite traditional ingredients in some fun and creative ways. Good for the body and good for the soul! Let’s get cooking!
