Fall is the best time to cook warm, comforting meals. The chilly air, the longer nights, and the emphasis on spending time with family help aid in the need for amazing meals. If you are at a loss this season, Ambitious Kitchen has 31 meals for you to make this fall!
Breakfast is the most important part of the day, for you and any little ones you have. Start off right by having breakfasts that will boost your brain and boost your family’s connection. Start the day with pumpkin oatmeal pancakes, pumpkin bread with maple glaze, pumpkin zucchini muffins with cream cheese frosting, or a pumpkin pie smoothie!
If your family is not into pumpkin, try banana bread or high-protein peanut butter cup overnight oats. On weekends when you have some more time, maybe give this butternut squash bacon spinach quiche a shot!
For a warm lunch, try this healing ginger coconut brown rice soup, slow cooker pumpkin peanut butter chicken soup, healthy chicken pot pie soup, or vegan curried pumpkin lentil soup. For a lunch with some crunch, you might like either the roasted sweet potato, pear, and pomegranate spinach salad or the Brussels sprouts kale Honeycrisp apple salad with maple cider dressing. If you want something a bit different, give the crispy broccoli sweet and spicy sesame tahini noodles a try!
End the day with an amazing meal with your family. Branch out with the spicy black bean chicken enchiladas with pumpkin sour cream sauce or the nourishing yellow chickpea pumpkin curry with coconut brown rice. Enjoy a cozy meal with the stovetop southwest tuna mac and cheese, the slow cooker black bean pumpkin turkey chili, or the butternut squash, chickpea, and lentil Moroccan stew.
Or take a spin on a classic by making the vegetarian spinach pumpkin lasagna, healthy tuna casserole, and the best crispy baked chicken nuggets that your kids will love!
