Fall Recipe Round Up
September 22nd is the First Day of Fall! As much as we love all the glorious summer recipes we are ready for a change in season, shift in our ingredients and some new flavours! Below we pulled together a list of our favourite "bridge" recipes to get through this transition where we want all the cozy spices but the weather hasn't fully cooled down.
Check out the recipes below and also our post on Foods to Cook with in September for more nutrition tips and inspiration!
Fig, Plum and Kale Salad
There is something comforting about this time when we shift into a crisper morning and add some warming spices and flavours on our plates. We're not totally done with those hot days, but we are starting to lean into the cozy welcome Fall feels.
This Fig, Plum and Kale Salad is a perfect "bridge" dish, light enough for a warm summer night eating al fresco.
If you want to make the recipe a heartier addition to dinner, and still keep it plant based, you can add walnuts, avocado, roasted tofu, or chickpeas.
