When the days get colder and the nights draw in, all I want in the evening is a hearty comforting dinner to warm me up. I still enjoy plenty of smoothies and salads but I like to combine them with steamed or oven-baked autumn veggies like sweet potato, pumpkin, beetroot and endive. These colorful dishes are my top 7 quick and easy fall recipes. They are super satisfying and bursting with seasonal flavors. I hope they’ll become your go-to weeknight dinner favorites too!
This satisfying noodle dish will warm you from the inside out. I love the sweet nutty flavor of the roasted butternut squash with the savory kale and tangy pomegranate seeds.
This warming miso soup might be one of the quickest soups you’ll ever make. It’s hearty, packed with minerals and an excellent source of natural probiotics.
This black bean salad will satisfy your sweet tooth, fill your belly and warm you up on cold days. Black beans are packed with plant-based protein, fiber and magnesium – perfect to lift your spirit, boost your energy levels and keep you full longer.
During the coldest days of winter, I often long for a cup of hot soup. This Ginger Pumpkin Soup from my book Vegan & Raw will warm you up from head to toe! Thanks to the ginger it will also help you to improve your digestion, stimulate your fat-burning metabolism and even protect you against colds.
This creamy polenta gets its yellow color from turmeric, a ‘superfood’ spice that will boost your immune system, warm your body and help you to reduce cravings for sweet snacks. Combined with roasted Belgian endive, this polenta makes a really flavorful and filling meal.
