Fall. It begins on September 22nd, and ends on December 20th. That’s 89 glorious days to get your pumpkin on. If you’ve done fall right, by mid December you should be out of cinnamon. Got it? ;D
Pumpkins, nutmeggyness, and yummy blends of Autumn spices that smell like they came from some fairy-tale land where some extremely charismatic and beautiful hobbit blended together the roots of burgundy flowers and sparkly stuff that came out of them. This is the stuff fall is made of.
And, in honor of such, I’ve searched archives upon archives to compile the most inspiring list of high-rated, outrageously yummy fall-favorite vegan recipes that glimmer from the inside out with the spirit of Autumn! No cholesterol, and no furry friends slaughtered for these cozy fall dishes! What more could you ask for? Besides of course, the most perfect crimson leaves crunching under your feet as you go for an evening walk after enjoying one of these delicious fall-favorite vegan recipes 😉 :
This creamy, roasted butternut cashew-cream alfredo is thick, autumnal and savory. White wine, sauteed onions, garlic, pepper and dry-rubbed sage blend together over silky, warm noodles to create a lavishly decadent fall dish. Garnished with pepitas, chopped pecans, walnuts or hazelnuts.
A thick, grilled vegan breakfast sausage patty brushed with olive oil and fine black pepper rests in a toasty warm whole wheat English muffin, slathered with savory-sweet maple pumpkin butter. Dashed with sliced and grilled earthy mushrooms, draped with a thick slice of vegan Montery Jack cheese and topped with crisp, chopped fresh arugula, this breakfast sandwich is stacked tall with comforting flavors that melt together, and a punch. In your autumn-struck face. Optional dash of hot sauce or cayenne for a hint of spice.
This creamy cheezy pasta dish is made with a decadent cashew-butternut squash sauce. Subtle sweetness is accented with minced garlic, lemon zest, nooch, sea-salt fried kale and smoked paprika— making this dish rustic, sensual and perfect for fall.
This rustic, walnut-infused, silky-sweet, cozy-delicious, autumny no-bake pumpkin pie is perfect as an afternoon treat with some coffee or tea. Brown sugar and pumpkin spice twinkles atop a raw walnut rolled-oat crust in this decadent no-bake dish.
These toasty bites warm from the sizzling skillet, with a crumbly pumpkin seed-pistachio crust, drizzled with maple tahini or chipote mayo on top will make you swoon. Perfect as a fall party appetizer, or to get your cozy on! And they’re gluten-free.
Ooooooooh. A spicy pumpkin-based curry with pureed pumpkin, roasted pumpkin cubes and a coconut milk and vegetable-based broth. Ultra soothing. This one is also gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free and all those other things you think-you’re-allergic-to-sometimes free! Yipee!
