The leaves are turning, and the chill of fall is setting in. We’re looking forward to cozying up by the fire with a bowl of carrot and coriander soup, dipping apple cinnamon doughnuts into our morning coffees, and serving browned butter and butternut squash pasta for a deserving date. These delightful and hearty fall recipes will make every autumn meal a special one. Pin them now and enjoy them all season long.
Sunchokes, otherwise known as the Jerusalem artichoke, are a species of sunflower that’s also in season in the fall. Roasted with a little olive oil and sea salt, they make the most delicious soup. They’re also packed with iron (more than 30 times that of broccoli!) and have many other vitamins and minerals that are great for you. So slurp up.

Not only is this lovely autumn cake breathtakingly beautiful, it also has the loveliest combination of flavours. The figs add a bit of fruity flavour to an otherwise creamy, toasted hazelnut cake, and the cream cheese frosting keeps it from becoming overly sweet.
RECIPE: Dolly and Oatmeal
Figs are some of fall’s finest produce, and in this irresistible recipe, their sweet flavour is enhanced with caramelised sugar, goat cheese, caramelised shallots, balsamic vinegar, and prosciutto. Talk about a totally bomb lunch. You can make these crostini as an appetizer, too!
RECIPE: Honestly Yum
A one-pot dinner has a special place in our hearts, and this one, with a healthy dose of protein, carbs, and veggies, is truly top-notch. Crispy chicken, flavorful wild rice, and autumnal veggies cook in herbs, broth, and beer in under an hour—it’s genius.
RECIPE: Half-Baked Harvest
After months of making salads and light meals, a big satisfying pot of root vegetables stewed on your stovetop for hours is the most delightful introduction to fall. This gluten-free, vegan kabocha squash and pumpkin curry features gorgeous autumnal shades and is packed with interesting spices.
RECIPE: Sassy Kitchen
Escarole is a variety of endive with broader, paler, and a little less bitter leaves than other members of the endive clan. Escarole and white bean soup with turkey sausage is a classic recipe that’s hearty and heartwarming—so wonderful for fall.
RECIPE: Wild Greens and Sardines
Fresh from the garden or farmers market and roasted in the oven, seasonal vegetables (carrots, beets, rainbow chard) become sweet and faintly salty. Top them with a smoky roasted garlic dressing and toss in some toasted pepitas for autumnal crunch.
