Ready? Let’s get cooking!
Indian Corn Popcorn
Yes, you can eat Indian corn—that multicolored corn that usually adorns the Thanksgiving table. Just be sure to select Indian corn that has not been sprayed with lacquer for use in decorating. This recipe shows you how to make Indian Corn Popcorn three ways: on the stovetop, in the microwave, and in a popcorn popper. Add whatever toppings you enjoy on traditional popcorn for an easy fall snack.
Sweet Potato Turkey Meatballs
Your mouth will water just reading this recipe! Healthier than traditional meatballs, these tender nuggets of lean turkey paired with antioxidant-rich sweet potato make perfect fall appetizers—especially when dipped in the accompanying creamy maple sauce.
Roasted Cauliflower Salad with Pomegranate
For a twist on traditional roasted fall vegetables, try this Roasted Cauliflower Salad. It’s accented with colorful, seasonal pomegranate seeds, red onion, and pistachios—and it will help ease the transition between crisp summer salads and cozier fall recipes.
Spiced Pumpkin, Lentil, and Goat Cheese Salad
Looking for satisfying fall vegetarian recipes? Try this recipe, another fall salad that works equally well as a side dish or as a vegetarian main course, thanks to the protein-rich lentils. Plus, who can resist seasonal pumpkin and creamy, tangy goat cheese?
Slow Cooker Herbed Chicken and Rice Pilaf
Fall dinner ideas tend toward comfort food, and this recipe is no exception. It’s an easy fall dinner to make if you’re short on time. Just spend 20 minutes in the morning and you’ll have a hot, healthy, comforting meal waiting when you return at the end of a brisk autumn day.
Fall desserts are typically tummy fillers like pumpkin and apple pie. But if you want a smaller sweet that’s quick to make, try these no-bake Cranberry-Cashew Clusters. A single cluster has about 150 calories and is the perfect thing to satisfy your sweet tooth without too much sugar.
Pumpkin Perfection Protein Shake
Forget the pumpkin-spice latte and go for your favorite fall flavor in protein shake form. Perfectly blended in your BlenderBottle® shaker bottle, this easy-to-make Pumpkin Perfection shake will satisfy your pumpkin craving throughout the fall season or any time of year.
