Autumn Recipe Round-up
BY JACQUELYN DUGGAN
I get that cozy, comforting feeling this time of year as the temperatures drop, the leaves start to turn, and I find myself craving to be in the kitchen more and more with warming recipes.
While I’m not a huge pumpkin-flavored person, I do love a good recipe that incorporates the fall flavors I know and love: maple, sweet potato, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice.
Over the years, I’ve saved several that I’ve tried, tasted, and made over and over again – if you’re looking for a new fall treat or meal to make this week, this post is for you.
Here’s my round-up of my favorite autumn-inspired dishes. Let’s jump in!
Pumple Maple Pecan Granola
This is my all-time favorite recipe for granola – it’s easy, requires only a few ingredients (most I usually have on hand or can easily grab at the grocery store), and it’s so dang delicious! It also keeps well for several weeks, which I appreciate (though it’s rare that there is any left, even a week after I make it!)
Pumpkin Bread with Salted Maple Butter
My favorite quote from Molly Baz goes something like this: “Pumpkin bread is actually pumpkin cake. People are just fooling themselves.” This recipe is so delicious: with its olive oil base, it’s super moist, and the fresh spices really take it up a level. Don’t skimp on that salted maple butter, either! Note: To make this gluten-free, I usually use King Arthur’s 1:1 Flour.
No Bean Turkey + Sweet Potato Chili
There are few weeks that go by from September-December when I’m not making this recipe! It’s quick, and easy and makes for a great meal to share with friends and family. It’s always a crowd-pleaser!
Cinnamon Maple Whiskey Sour
I *love* a whiskey sour, and this recipe adds a little twist for fall.
Saffron Risotto with Butternut Squash
For a go-to comforting fall dish – this recipe is your friend. It’s also the perfect entertaining dish and would pair really beautifully with an arugula salad and Illahe’s 2021 Pinot Gris.
