It’s officially October, and to kick off the fall season I’m rounding up my best fall recipes. These are my favorite cozy recipes that I make year after year. Because, it’s fall! And you need something warm to eat that’s easy to make, healthy and filling.
Colorful leaves, cozy sweaters, squirrels making a nest in your gutter…oh wait. That’s just us.
Squirrels aside, it’s finally starting to feel like fall around here. It took awhile, but (finally!) the weather here in Raleigh today is overcast and cool with a misty kind of rain coming down. The perfect weather for these fall favorites that I’m excited to share with you today.
These recipes are all simple, filling, and will warm you to your toes — perfect for a fall potluck, easy dinner, or just when you want a big bowl of comfort food.
Are you ready? Here we go, with my favorite and BEST fall recipes!
Favorite Fall Recipes That Are Simply the Best
Quinoa and Goat Cheese Stuffed Tomatoes
These stuffed tomatoes are perfect as a side or main dish when paired with a hearty salad. Tomatoes are filled with quinoa, herbs and goat cheese then baked in the oven for a delicious dish. Get the recipe HERE.
You can’t have the cold and flu season picking up without the best chicken soup recipe in your back pocket. I love this reicpe because of the depth of flavors in the broth, and it is hearty and filling when you need a big bowl of soup to heal your head and heart. Crafted over the years while bundled up in a blanket while sniffling with a cold — you DEFINITELY need this soup in your life. Get the recipe HERE.
Instant Pot Butternut Mac and Cheese
Easy, delicious, and perfect for fall — and better still, ready in about 30 minutes from start to finish. Can you say weeknight dinner is done? Yes… yes, you can! Get the recipe HERE.
Instant Pot Pumpkin Mac and Cheese
Easy…even easier than the Instant Pot Butternut Mac and Cheese…and also ready in about 30 minutes. That includes the time your Instant Pot comes to pressure, too. A true 30 minute meal. Get the recipe HERE.
Heartwarming Cocoa Chili
Chocolate in chili is the secret ingredient you didn’t know you needed in your life until now. Trust me on this one. Amazing when paired with sweet whole wheat cornbread. Oh, and it’s heart healthy too. Get the recipe HERE.
Tomato and Herb Braised Giant Beans (aka Better than Chocolate Cake Lima Beans)
So simple. So delicious. They take awhile to simmer (working on an Instant Pot version soon, I promise!), but are soooo worth it. Add a little butter for flavor, or leave it out to make it vegan. This one is great with cornbread or crusty bread. Get the recipe HERE.
Lentils with Goat Cheese and Spinach
I can’t get enough of this one, and again, it’s so simple with just a few ingredients. Warm savory lentils topped with wilted spinach and creamy goat cheese. Serve this one with crusty bread and I know you will love it! Get the recipe HERE.
