Lemongrass & Coconut Noodle Soup

 

Instead of stewing over how chilly you are…

Warm up with a cozy bowl of homemade soup.

 

Creamy:

Ditch the spoon and slurp these uber creamy soups straight out of your bowl, or the pot itself… why mess around?

Thai Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Throw 3 tablespoons of Thai red curry paste in the pot for a spicier, more intensely flavored soup. Don’t forget the toppings! Unsweetened coconut flakes add a nice crunch and tropical note.

Maple Cream Sweet Potato Soup

The perfect combo of sweet and savory. And let’s be honest, all you really want is to nosh on endless cheesy cinnamon sugar twists.

 

Cheesy:

What goes well with cheesy soup? Cheesy bread! Double cheese forever please.

Broccoli Cheddar Chicken & Dumpling Soup

This cheesy, creamy soup is the definition of comfort food. Seconds are inevitable so whip up a double batch!

Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Swap in veggie broth and leave out the bacon to make this cozy soup vegetarian. Bacon lover? Add even more, duh.

 

Hearty:

Soup can definitely count as a main–fill up your bowl and forget the sides. (Who needs salad anyway?)

Italian Lentil Soup with Sausage

This hearty soup is packed with protein and veggies. Serve with crusty bread for dunking.

Perfect Beef Barley Soup

Beef barley soup makes great leftovers, so stir up a big pot and freeze some leftovers for when you have zero time to cook.

Mains:

Squash and sweet potatoes are here to stay! At least until spring springs.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Broccoli Rabe & Garlic Sage Butter

It’s hard to go wrong when garlic butter sauce is involved. Serve with extra Parm, of course, and maybe definitely some warm bread to mop up any extra buttah.

 

Sides:

More squash and Brussels sprouts too! Now isn’t that exciting. And no, that wasn’t sarcasm…

Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts

Not a fan of stinkin’ Brussels sprouts? This flavorful recipe might just make you change your mind. Add as much sriracha as your little heart desires.

Chipotle Black Bean Stuffed Delicata Squash

Delicata squash is naturally sweet, and you can eat the skin! Plus it’s a lot easier to cut than butternut or spaghetti squash–no emergency room visits please.

 

Sweets:

Obviously the very best part of fall. Sweet, crisp apples and pears have soooo much potential, so let’s get started.

Classic Pear Crisp

This crisp is super simple to throw together. Serve with creamy Greek yogurt and call it breakfast! There are fruit and oats involved after all.

Apple Butter French Toast Sticks

Enjoy these mouth-watering french toast sticks for breakfast or dessert. A little vanilla bean ice cream on the side couldn’t hurt. Dunk them in this pumpkin pie milkshake and you’re really doing life right.

Because let’s face it, you’re very busy.

And even more hungry.

 

Chicken:

Plain ole chicken breasts are fine, but you can do so much better.

Chicken & Black Bean Burritos

These burritos are filling, full of flavor, and healthy! Amp up the heat by adding more jalapeño if you dare. And if you happen to have some guac on hand–you should always have guac within reach–feel free to swap the magical stuff in for the sliced avocado.

Chicken Pad Thai

Yeah that’s right, you can whip up pad thai in your very own kitchen. Trust us, it’s not that hard, so get to wok! Use beef, shrimp, or firm tofu if you’re not in the mood for chicken.

 

Seafood:

You know what they say… fish is brain food, and these seafood recipes just happen to be mouth-wateringly delicious too.

Crispy Honey Ginger Salmon

If your knife skills are on point, you’ll have dinner on the table in just 20 minutes. Serve this salmon over fluffy white rice or brown rice because no sauce should be left behind (and licking your plate is not exactly acceptable behavior once you reach the age of 9).

Shrimp Risotto

Oh so satisfyingly creamy! If you want some veggies in your life stir in a heaping cup of frozen green peas during the last couple minutes of cooking. Garnish each bowl with a hefty dose of freshly grated Parm and black pepper like a pro.

 

Meatless:

Meat isn’t always necessary. But don’t worry, flavor is always required.

Hummus Noodles with Tomatoes

That’s right, hummus makes for a dang good pasta sauce. Use the store-bought stuff if you’re extra low on time. No judgement over here.

Quinoa Minestrone

This fresh soup is packed with veggies and protein, so it will keep you full and satisfied until those cookies are done baking… or until the ice cream softens a bit. Top your minestrone with Parm right before digging in because cheese is always welcome.
