5 Irresistible Fall Recipes to Try This Season

Fall is almost here, and I’m incredibly excited! Why? Because it means it’s time to make healthy Fall Recipes! You’ll want to stock up on extra pumpkin, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, apples, and broccoli at your next grocery trip. Because that’s what’s included in these 5 irresistible Fall recipes to try this season. You’ll “fall” in love with all the comforting flavors of autumn highlighted in these delicious dishes.

I have all your courses covered from soup to dessert. And each recipe is so simple and easy, you’ll want to make them all season long.

Shall we get started?


Life can get busy at any time of the year, but after the dog days of summer, the busyness factor seems to go up in the Fall. So that life doesn’t get too overwhelming, it makes sense to try to always have quick meals on hand to make. One way to do that is with soup! Soups are perfect for busy fall nights, and they’re easy to make.

Here’s one to add to your menu. This Sweet Potato Coconut Soup by Neriz of Billi’s Kitchen is the perfect comfort food, especially on those cooler evenings. Serve it as an appetizer or make it a meal by adding a healthy protein. The main course I share below would fit the bill nicely! Whip up a batch of the soup over the weekend and store it in the fridge. When you’re ready to have some, warm it up in a pan, and you’re good to go!

You’ll get fiber from the sweet potatoes and other vitamins and nutrients like calcium, iron, potassium, and selenium. And they’re loaded with B vitamins and vitamin C. So, it’s no wonder sweet potatoes are considered a “superfood.” They may even improve insulin sensitivity in diabetes, help with gut health, and reduce cancer risk. 


If you meal prep, salads are a tried and true go-to for sure. And this salad is no exception. You can even take it on the road! Simply store in a mason jar or air-tight container and grab it on your way out the door.

Versatile, easy, and inexpensive. Those are three words I like! And you get all of that with this delicious pumpkin and Feta Salad by Michelle Minnaar of Greedy Gourmet. Made with roasted pumpkin, it’s a low-carb option for a starter or main course.

Pumpkin is a nutrient-dense, vitamin-packed, low-calorie gourd with high antioxidant content. It’s been known to help boost immunity, reduce your risk of chronic disease, and protect your vision. Wow, right? 


This next recipe can be served as a side, but why stop there? Make it a main course meal by adding lean meat, beans, or even tofu.

Want a tasty and healthy side dish you can whip up in just 20 minutes? Then you have to try this Butternut Squash Spinach Skillet recipe by Kate of Babaganosh. Plus, you only need one pan to make it, which makes for easy cleanup.

If you’ve never cooked with butternut squash before, now’s the time to do so. This Fall food is low in calories but high in nutrients, including magnesium, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin A. And combined with spinach, you’ll get a hefty serving of fiber. 

Main Course

I’m a huge proponent of having veggies at most, if not all, of your meals. And if one of your wellness goals this fall is to incorporate more greens on your plate, this next recipe fits the bill!

Did you know broccoli is sweeter and tastes less bitter and sharp when harvested in the cooler Autumn temperatures? When you make this Smoked Chicken Sausage And Roasted Vegetables recipe by Kristy of On My Kids Plate, you’ll know what I mean. It uses a flavor-packed sausage that’s leaner than regular sausage and works well as a healthier option in a balanced diet.

Broccoli is a good carb that’s packed with fiber. This helps prevent constipation, keeps your blood sugar low, and aids digestion. That means you’re less likely to overeat. 


Dessert anyone? Yes, please! This next recipe may seem simple, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how naturally yummy it is.

Appease your sweet tooth with this lightly sweetened and easy to prepare Sautéed Apples recipe by Erin of Texanerin Baking. If you can get to an orchard, check off apple picking on your bucket list and pick your own juicy fruits!

You know what they say, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” That’s because they are full of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients that may boost digestion, brain, and heart health. Sweet! Literally.
