Fall is a great season for foodies. Apple trees are bowing with the weight of their plump fruit, pumpkin patches are overflowing, and the scent of spice dances through the air.
The crisp chill of fall tends to encourage us to spend more time in our kitchens- the perfect opportunity to test new recipes. In this spirit, we’re sharing the five best ways to enjoy your favorite fall foods!
Cranberry Apple Cider-Glazed Pork Chops
Give turkey a break with this sweetly glazed pork chop recipe. Apple cider isn’t just for drinking!
Tasty for our take? Try Rootastes’ Apple Cider Pork Chops, part of our fall menu.
Cheesy Roasted Mushroom Melt
Give your grilled cheese some fall flair. This sandwich calls for cream cheese, ricotta, and mozzarella for a delightful gooey center, paired with mushrooms and onion for even more flavor.
Mad for mushrooms? Give our Manitari Mushroom Steak a try. We rub our signature steak cut in Mediterranean herbs and spices, roast until tender, and finish it off with a savory white medley of our local mushroom supreme sauce.
Fall Pumpkin Buddha Bowl
Who says pumpkin is just for pies? This savory lunch bowl blends the fall gourd with chickpeas and Brussels sprouts for a hearty meal you’ll look forward to.
Not in the mood to pack your lunch? Try Pumpkin Patch, a Heart of the Roots side that pairs roasted, spiced pumpkin with spinach and a medley of whole grains.
Cozy Autumn Wild Rice Soup
This savory soup combines wild rice with kale, sweet potato, carrots, and mushrooms for ultimate fall flavor. Pull on your coziest sweater and make a night of it.
Persimmons have taken a backseat to apples, but we’re here to change that. This sweet fruit is full of nutrients and antioxidants, and resembles the texture of a tomato when ripe. Paired with ginger in this bread recipe, it’s absolutely delightful.
More keen on peaches? Our Autumn Cobbler pairs peaches with spiced granola for a savory after-lunch treat.
Fall recipes are seemingly infinite, which is why we love seeking out not-so-common ingredients and pairings. Fire up your stove and get cooking!
