There is no month more autumn than October, when the leaves are finally changing, spooky Halloween decorations are being put up, and the weather is distinctly crisp, cool, and satisfying. That also means it’s the perfect time to make those classic fall recipes that you’ve been waiting for all summer. Here are three of our favorites.
Sweet Potato Lasagna
One of our favorite seasonal fall foods is sweet potato, which combines two of our favorite things (sweets and potatoes). This sweet potato lasagna recipe from Plant Based on a Budget is made with only a few ingredients: lentils, carrots, tomato sauce, vegan cheese, and lasagna sheets. Simple and delicious!
Butternut Squash Soup
Another classic autumn flavor is squash, with butternut squash being a popular favorite variety. This butternut squash soup recipe from Mari’s Garden and Kitchen is full of flavor and has a great, smooth texture. It tastes like fall in a bowl and you’ll find yourself wanting to make it all the time this season.
While we might be used to eating apples year-round, they’re actually seasonal in the fall, which might be why so many of our favorite fall desserts contain them. One of our favorite apple desserts is apple crumble, and we love this recipe from Working Mum’s Kitchen for how simple it is.
