Fall comfort food recipes
Fall is finally here, and that means it’s time for comfort food! Whether you’re craving chocolate chip cookies or some homemade soup, these recipes will warm up your day.
Pumpkin and Cranberry Chutney
Pumpkin and Cranberry Chutney
- 1 cup chopped cranberries
- ¼ cup pumpkin seeds, toasted (see instructions)
- 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar or balsamic vinegar, plus some extra for drizzling on top of the chutney after serving.
Sweet Potato Casserole with Pomegranate Glaze
- 1 cup sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1/2 cup pomegranate juice (or grenadine)
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Harvest Dinner Pie
Harvest Dinner Pie
This is a great use of leftover baked goods, meats, and vegetables. You can make an entire pie in one day! If you have some extra fruit lying around that’s about to go bad (or if you just want some new recipes), try making this pie with it. The crust will be slightly sweet from the applesauce and cinnamon-sugar topping—and it will taste delicious when combined with whatever is left over from your meal prep days!
Sweet Potato Soup with Pecans and Apples
Sweet potato soup is a classic comfort food. It’s high in fiber and vitamin A, which means it can help boost your immunity.
Sweet potatoes are packed with nutrition: they’re low in calories and high in beta-carotene (a type of vitamin A). Sweet potatoes also contain potassium, magnesium and other minerals that are good for your heart health. The fiber in sweet potatoes helps keep blood sugar levels stable so you won’t feel hungry between meals or crash at night after eating too much!
Red Pepper and Rice Casserole
1 cup long grain rice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/3 cup green pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed (or 1 teaspoon dried)
2 cups broccoli florets or cauliflower florets (fresh or frozen)
1 carrot cut into chunks (about 2 inches long)
3 stalks celery chopped into chunks about 3 inches long and 2 inches wide at the top part of the stalk
Maple Bacon Apple Cider Cheese Dip
You can use turkey bacon, because I don’t eat pork
- 1 cup of bacon, chopped up
- 1/2 cup of maple syrup (or honey)
- 4 cups of apple cider vinegar
Instructions: In a large pan, fry your bacon until it’s nice and crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside on paper towels to drain excess grease. Bring the rest of your ingredients to room temperature over low heat. In a saucepan, bring all of those ingredients together in one pot and cook for 30 minutes or so until they’re nice and bubbly! Pour into sterilized mason jars with lids screwed down tight — you’ll want them sealed tightly because once you leave them out there overnight they can spoil quickly! Enjoy!
Glazed Lemonade Quinoa Sticks
Quinoa sticks are a great alternative to chips, crackers, and bread. Quinoa is high in protein and fiber, which means it’ll keep you feeling full longer. The sweet glaze on these lemonade quinoa sticks gives them the perfect amount of sweetness—you won’t even miss the sugar in regular lemonade!
2 cups uncooked quinoa (or any other grain)
1/4 cup water or broth
1/4 cup golden raisins (optional) 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon melted butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Zest of one lemon juice from about 3 lemons Grated peel from one orange 2 eggs beaten together
