Something about Fall makes cooking even more exciting. The first thing I think of when we turn the corner from Summer to Fall is what I can chef up to ring in my favorite season.
Desserts, soul foods, whatever you are craving, here are some of my favorite fall-themed recipes, all 100% vegan! This post is packed with creative Fall foods, ranging from sweet treats to hearty, nutritious, simplistic savory courses.
Even if you’re not vegan, sampling vegan recipes can be a great way you can do more for the earth and the animals we share it with. Nothing cozier than cooking with no animal cruelty.
If you try even one of these recipes, you’ll see how a vegan lifestyle can be truly delicious and limitless.
Steel-cut oats are my go-to breakfast because they are full of protein, fiber, and iron; the nutrition powerhouses. They also are perfectly delectable with just about any topping, but this recipe has got to be one of my favorite ways to decorate my oats. The candied pears and warm brown sugar will wrap you in a much-needed food hug, fit for a chilly fall morning.
These savory crepe-like pancakes can be enjoyed for any meal of the day! They are a garden of nutrition and creativity. I recommend adding some Just Egg and possibly some thinly sliced mushrooms roasted until slightly crispy in olive oil!
A dessert, but healthy? It’s true. This treat feels like a dessert but is packed with Omega-3’s, protein, fiber, and iron, all thanks to the oats and chia seeds filling this apple spice parfait.
Lunch and Dinner:
One of the best fall season combinations! Brussels sprouts aren’t quite your favorite? This recipe is guaranteed to change your mind about them. These are hearty, savory, nutritious, and very capable of warming up a chilly autumn evening.
If anything, you’ve got to try one of my favorite meat substitutes, and what better way to do that than in a taco? Cauliflower is uncanny to the meat you may be used to eating tacos with, not to mention loaded with nutrition. These tacos are smoky, mouth-watering, and will probably change your mind about vegetables. It wasn’t until I went vegan that I realized how versatile and creative vegetables really are. This recipe is solid proof of that.
Okay, I may love brussels sprouts a little more than the average person, but trust me on this: they’re extremely underrated. And, they are such a classic Fall veggie. With only a few ingredients, this recipe is great for busier nights and goes perfectly as a side dish to some curry or rice.
If the name doesn’t make you water enough, the flavor sure will. These cute mushrooms exploding with sweet-tangy flavor are a fantastic side dish in your fall holiday get-togethers. The recipe is also quite simple to make, with minimal chopping involved, which I know for me is typically the toughest part about making veggies.
A fiber and protein-powered bowl of one of the heartiest meals ever. Cozy up with your loved ones around the table with some fall candles and a large bowl of this and you’ve recreated a classic scene from Fall Pinterest boards.
Couldn’t make a list of my favorite recipes without having at least one ramen recipe in there! Enjoy diving into a bowl packed with soba noodles surrounded by garlic and mushroom flavored broth that requires just 30 minutes of your day!
Want to make pumpkin “oatmeal cream pies”? Get ready to want to make these warm, fall-spiced sweet treats over and over again this fall season (and maybe just in every season, because why not)?
The best brownies are chewy, fudgy, and chock-full of chocolate. These are those brownies. Let your mouth wander through the sweet, warm, rich melted chocolate harmonies in these sweet potato brownies.
Applesauce? In cake? Ah, a nostalgic childhood autumn fantasy. Well, it’s come true in this soft and fluffy treat that is a perfect complement to your fall dinners.
I don’t know about you but any dessert topped with a layer of sugar crystals like this is a dream come true for me. It creates an irresistible texture of a layer of crispy hiding a world of fluffy insides. Did I say irresistible?
14. Pumpkin Pudding
Only 6 simple ingredients and 10 short minutes to make this creamy pudding. If you’re anything like me, you love anything and everything pumpkin spice, and this pudding dream will satisfy all your cravings.
Why not combine two of the best things? So happy I came across this recipe, and I can guarantee its rich and creamy layers of soft pillow-like rice and spiced pumpkin are going to keep you wanting more.
Hoping everyone is able to enjoy this season as much as I am! P.S. There is no shame in wanting to make fall recipes all year round (I do it too), so feel free to return to this page and these recipes throughout the year!
