LD Picks: Fabulous Fall Recipes

When fall arrives, we can’t help but crave hearty, home-cooked meals. 

Roasted Beet Kale Salad with Maple Candied Walnuts

favourite fall recipes 2015

Kale, walnust, maple syrup, roasted beets, and Boursin cheese – basically, we’re talking the perfect fall salad. It’s healthy, hearty, delicious, and keeps for a few days in the fridge. What’s not to love? Just don’t forget to massage the kale to soften it up before mixing the salad.

Chorizo Mushroom and Herb Pilaf

Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset

There’s nothing like a warm rice dish to kick off your fall menu planning. A pilaf is kind of like a risotto but the cooking process is a little less hands on (you can step away to prep another dish as necessary). This recipe is flexible in that you can use whatever fresh herbs you have handy – perfect if your garden is full of seasonal herbs at the moment.

Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you have to retire your favourite salad dressings. This creamy, avocado-based dressing is great drizzled over steamed or roasted vegetables (or added to your favourite fall salad!).

These easy and delicious “cuffins” are the perfect treat for the fall season. Plus, get this – there are only three required ingredients. Cinnamon and marshmallow icing are optional, but really, when is icing every optional? Take the time for the icing. You won’t regret it.

Pork Gyoza

Don’t be intimidated by these pan-fried gyoza. They may look intimidating, but the process is simple – mix all the ingredients by hand and then build the gyoza. When they’re frying, mix up the sauce. Time commitment is only 50 minutes!
