It's Fall! Probably my favorite season – not only for weather but for cooking! I looooove cozy food. I love food that makes me feel like I'm getting wrapped in a big hug.

Since there is literally SO much to choose from when it comes to fall recipes, I wanted to put together a post that includes all of my favorite healthy fall dinner recipes. We've got literally everything covered here. From hearty salads to cozy soups, comforting chilis, creamy pasta, big bowls and even some extras added in at the end. These recipes are all healthy, mostly vegan (if not, there's an easy vegan option) and we've got over 60 of them to choose from!

Think of this post as your Fall Dinner Catalog. Bookmark this page, come back to you and enjoy all the abundance that Fall offers!

What Produce is in Season during Fall?

While not quite as bountiful as summer, there are TONS of veggies (and fruits) that are in season during the fall months. I need to put together a fall produce guide, but some of my favorite things to look for in fall include:

  • Potatoes (all varieties)
  • Winter Squash (all varieties)
  • Kale (all varieties)
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Fennel
  • Carrots

And so many more! These are probably the most common that you'll find, but as I said, we'll put together a fall produce guide for you!

Best Types of Fall Dinner Recipes

When it comes to dinner during the fall, I think there are a few main categories that most people gravitate towards. Think cozy, warm, comforting, soothing, hearty. Like “sticks to your ribs” kind of food.

Here are the categories we're working with today:

  • Hearty Salads
  • Soups
  • Chili (needs its own category)
  • Bowls
  • Pasta

And then we've got a kind of catch-all category at the end!

So…ready to dive into all post that is ALL THINGS fall? Let's do this!

Fall Salad Recipes (For Dinner!)

Your mind might not immediately jump to salads during the fall, but there are ways to make cozy salads! The salads that I've linked below are full of more than just raw veggies. We've got everything from roasted veggies, tofu, beans, grains, and more. Some of them are also served warm!

Fall Soup Recipes

What would a list of healthy fall dinner recipes be without a whole section dedicated to soup?! Soup is my absolute fave thing to make in the fall – it's easy, it's comforting and it's a great way to get in a ton of veggies. Here are some of my favorite fall soup recipes.

Chili is also a classic soup recipe, but since there are so many amazing chili recipes out there – including quite a few from SQ – I felt like it needed it's own section. All these healthy chili recipes are vegan!

Bowl Recipes for Fall

One of the coziest things you can make this season is a bowl meal. I like to pack mine with plant-based protein, roasted veggies, and some sort of grain. You can't forget about the sauce too. My everyday tahini sauce is the perfect topping for bowls!
