Fall includes some of my favorite foods. Bring on the Brussel Sprouts, Beets, Pomegranates, Fennel, Pear, Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes, Squash … and I could eat these foods all year long. Have been bookmarking fall recipes for a long time, in an advent to make em all before Christmas. But since the chili breeze has already crept in and I haven’t even started with the first half of the list, I thought of sharing the list with you guys. So at least some one, somewhere on this planet get around to try these wonderful Autumn recipes from me and these awesome bloggers who are sharing some of their Fall Favorites!
So here is a list of 25 meatless recipes for Christmas, the perfect way to enhance fall and winter’s hearty root vegetables and warm up your kitchen with a cozy meal. And am sure these will add to all the Winter-y fun along with giving you the warmth and comfort from within.
Starters and Appetizers:
Let’s start with these Sweet and spicy cheddar and pumpkin crackers for your nibbles. They look divine, dont they?
This can be paired up with these Vegan and Gluten free Parsnip, sundried tomato and herb “sausages” on a bed of creamy cauliflower mash! Super healthy and diet friendly savory treat!
and this smooth Butternut squash and carrot soup, which is such a simple one to prepare and vegan too.
Ok, this one is technically a side dish but I have included that under starters since it disappeared on my table in seconds, before I could serve main meal. Balsamic brussels sprouts with maple, walnuts and feta is truly an amazing starter.. err.. side dish.
I have had carrot soup a lot, and have never really liked it. But this roasted carrot soup is something I would love to try my hand on.
Not just “yet another oatmeal cookies”, these Pumpkin and oatmeal spiced cookies are on top of my list for the holiday season.
I am just being cheesy and including my Thai spiced hot n sour Mushroom soup in the list, which I took from Yotam Ottolenghi’s new cookbook. Again, being a Thai food fan, I simply cannot resist making this soup again for the weekend. Such hearty and warming appetizer it is.
Try on this awesome an unusual gratin- Beet and turnip gratin. Such vibrant mix of seasonal vegetables, and needless to say, super healthy.
Thai is my second favorite after Indian and this Thai pumpkin curry with cauliflower rice is one of the best one I have tried at home.
How can I not include a recipe from my favorite blog? Check out this awesome recipe for Paneer stuffed Butternut squash with spiced yogurt
Love this beautifully presented Streusel topped sweet potato casserole. perfect for a hearty meal which leaves you yearning for more.
And if you want something simpler to go along with your salad, try these roasted parsnip with rosemary. Such a simple recipe, perfect for the lazy weekdays supper.
If you are looking for a curry to make for the Holiday season-this Indian yogurt based curry is both comforting and warming dish, best eaten with boiled rice. Try this mildly spiced Kadhi- soft gram flour dumplings simmered in yogurt based sauce.
Breads and sweet bakes:
Crumbles are always on top of my list, when planning for a get together in Autumn. And this Apple crust and crumble pie is definitely a keeper, a traditional recipe from the Clever carrot.
Love how the this spiced blueberry and pumpkin cake and turned so moist and soft, so good with a cuppa.
Pumpkin Halwa is a true Indian dessert, loved by everyone around the world. And the pictures are so tempting, I can just gawk at them all day (and eat bowl fulls of this halwa alongside)
For the chocolate lovers, you just cannot say no to this chocolate swirled pumpkin pie. Look at the perfect glaze and swirl, its amazing isn’t it?
Another halwa from the Indian kitchen, this is an Indian carrot pudding sorts, easy and kids’ favorite! Carrot Halwa is my weekend special dessert for fall.
And last but not the least, before you finish up with a bread and butter pudding, make it healthier and tastier by following the recipe for this Pumpkin bread pudding.
