For most of us, Autumn signals the start of one of the busiest seasons. We need foolproof fall recipes we can rely on to feed hungry people after long days – especially those days when we have been so busy we really don’t even want to think about dinner, let alone cook it.
Whether you prefer meat, poultry, fish or vegetarian options, there is something for everyone amongst this collection of tried and tested fall recipes. You will want to make these wholesome, easy to make, family-friendly main dishes again and again.
Make meal planning easy! Don’t forget to bookmark or pin this post so you can refer back to it again and again – and if you like it, please do share.
We often think of beef for stews and slow cooking, but thin strips of steak can make a delicious dinner fast too. If you love a good stew, don’t miss:
I also love this Cottage Pie with Roast Root Vegetable Topping, an easy twist on a traditional Shepherd’s Pie.
If you want a delicious dinner fast, try:
Beef and Vegetable Stir Fry with a Spicy Sauce (pictured above)
Pork is another meat that is suited to both slow cooked stews and quicker meals. My favourite fall recipes using pork include:
Warm Wild Rice Salad with Sausages and Apples (Pictured above, this can also be made with vegetarian sausages.)
Spicy Sausage Pasta (This can also be made with vegetarian sausages.)
Chicken is so versatile and perfect for entertaining. These comforting fall recipes feature regularly on our family table.
Maple Glazed Chicken with Roasted Root Vegetables (pictured above)
So many people tell me they feel nervous about cooking fish, but once you give it a try you will see how easy it is. I love serving fish all year round, but it is just right for fall recipes too.
Salmon and Broccoli Stir Fry (pictured above)
Cod with Mushroom and Spinach Sauce (This recipe can also be made with chicken.)
Cod with Chickpeas in a Mediterranean Ragu (Leave out the cod and add extra chickpeas to make this recipe vegetarian.)
Vegetarian Fall Recipes
With root vegetables so plentiful, Autumn is a great time for hearty vegetarian main dishes. I get asked to make these recipes regularly:
Easy Vegetable Tagine (Pictured above, this recipe also has a vegan option.)
Kung Pao Cauliflower (vegan and gluten-free)
Of course, you can make these recipes all year round, not just in the Autumn. However these are the recipes I regularly turn to from September to December for both family meals and entertaining. I hope you will enjoy them too!
