Fall arrived over the weekend and brought cardigans, hot chocolate and warm meals with it. I’m an autumn baby, so I’ve always been partial to these cooler months. I love everything about it, the fashion, the fresh start, the changing leaves and the cool air. I admit I’m ready for fall in all its glory, particularly the flavours — warm hearty meals that stick to your ribs. Here are a couple of recipes I’ve got on my make list this fall.
There’s still some beautiful produce at the market — the last tomatoes and gorgeous eggplants. This Chickpea Za’atar Salad from Green Kitchen Stories would be delicious with warm grains, the perfect bridge from summer produce to fall flavours.
True story: A few years ago I made this mushroom and lentil pot pie and Jeff thought there was meat in it. This is my favourite dish to make for the vegetarians at a holiday meal or just a chilly Sunday night when I want to snuggle down with a warm meal, a glass of wine and the couch.
Since I started class I’ve been really in to stocking my freezer. I love the idea of making Jamie Oliver’s sweet leek, ricotta and tomato lasagne in individual servings for freezing!
