10 Vegan Recipes to Help You Make the Most of Your Fall Harvest

The fall conjures for me nature in transition, puffy grey clouds, and the start of cold weather, and of course the warmth and comfort of fall-inspired dishes. The veggies become hardier and the broths more spicy  just what we need to forget about the coming winter!

The good news is that you can have all your fall favorites on a plant-based diet and here we preview just a few of the incredibly delicious recipes to find comfort in this fall.

Nourish Yourself with Our 10 Favorite Vegan Fall Recipes 

It’s that magical time of the year when we discover new shades of red and some of our favorite fruit and veggies are available in abundance pumpkins, squashes, apples, pears, beans, just to name a few!

And this means that it is also time to make our favorite comfort foods but with a healthy twist. Here are some of the plant-based dishes we're cooking up this fall. They are brimful of nutrition, oil- and refined sugar-free, and simple to make! Don’t hesitate to substitute your favorite ingredients if there is anything on the recipe list that you may not have or you simply don’t like.

Let’s enjoy this season of abundance!
