I came home from work the other day to find cook books all over the kitchen and living room and it only took me about 2 seconds to realize what had happened… my roommate Arielle had officially joined team Fall. There is something about this season in particular that has perfectly paired foods. Sure certain foods and flavors affiliate with certain seasons but fall food is exclusive to fall. I mean you won’t find anyone eating pumpkin pie in April because that would be insane.
I’ve been a vegetarian for about 20 years so I thought I would share with you a few veggie friendly recipes and blogs that I love and will be enjoying over the next couple months!
1. Vegan Chili
This is always the very first thing I want to make when the weather takes a turn. It’s warm, satisfying and definitely ranks as a comfort food. Not to mention it’s perfect for working girls to freeze and heat for quick and easy lunches. (plus its almost impossible to screw up) Here are two I’ll be trying:
This Jamie Oliver one for sure. I LOVE the idea of having sweet potatoes in it. Yum.
Also this Whole Foods spicy veggie chili. Spicy chili is where its at.
I recently stumbled across this Vegan food blog lunchboxbunch.com and found this awesome article on fall recipes. There were two featured soups and I couldn’t pick so I’m sharing them both!
3. Heirloom Tomato Tart
I pinned this heirloom tomato tart almost two months ago from joythebaker and haven’t stopped thinking about it. This definitely requires a bit more skill than other recipes, but it sure looks worth it.
4. All the Red Wine
This is where the ‘everything nice’ comes in. I’m a white wine drinker year round sans sept-nov. Red wine is SO cozy and I am SO poor so here are a couple of my fav budget reds!
1. Finca Los Primos – Malbec 2.The Show – Malbec 3.Gabbiano – Chianti
