We officially enter fall this week! Transitioning from summer to fall means a change in schedule, activities, clothing and food. There are so many reasons to eat seasonal, locally grown food, and the Niche gang is so lucky to live in an area with an abundance of fresh produce. For your inspiration, here is a collection of recipes to make at home with your next farmer's market haul.
Breakfast + Snacks
Simple Broccoli and Tofu Quiche by Minimalist Baker
Savory, filling breakfast (or suitable for any time of day!) with a plant-based and protein-packed sub of tofu instead of eggs. You can use a variety of veggies depending on what you find.
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal by FanneTastic Food
Start the day off right with a delicious taste of fall that can easily carry your hunger over to lunch - and no added sugar. Option to add some additional pumpkin seeds, pecans, walnuts, or your favorite nut butter to add more healthy fats and protein.
Concord Grape Muffins by Thyme and Love
A different use for this flavorful, antioxidant rich fruit (besides jelly, pie or wine :)). The baked grapes turn into little pockets of jam and you can use different flours to suit your preference.
Kale and Sweet Potato Brown Rice Bowls by Eating Bird Food
This kind of bowl has become a staple in healthy diets.You can sub quinoa or another type of grain depending on preference and what you have to create this super simple, filling + healthful bowl!
Pumpkin Chili by Thug Kitchen on Thatta Gurl
Ahhh chili, one of the easiest and most delicious fall comfort foods. Try this recipe with a pumpkin twist to add even more fall love, and be sure to make a big batch for reheating!
Butternut Squash Veggie Pizza by Minimalist Baker
A fun, seasonal take on a pizza! Create your own crust, purchase a pre-made crust - maybe even one made from cauliflower - and again you can play around with veggies that you find at the market if you'd like. But this combo looks delicious with broccoli, onion and chickpeas for protein and fiber.
