Vegan Roasted Pumpkin Apple Stew
Nothing says “fall” quite like a good pumpkin soup. Many of the options out there add bone broth or dairy, but this recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan-friendly.
The recipe calls for slicing and roasting an entire pumpkin before blending it with the other ingredients, but you can also use canned pumpkin or pre-packaged chunks of pumpkin or butternut squash instead. The apple lends tartness, and the vegetables add the perfect amount of savory flavour for a well-balanced taste.

Autumn Vegetable Stew
This is a North African-inspired dish that utilizes a broad range of spices and an assortment of autumn veggies to create an intensely flavourful and rich stew that is perfect for cosy nights indoors.
While the ingredients list might look a bit intimidating, the majority of it consists of spices that you likely already have in your pantry. All of the vegetables are easily obtained, and you can even buy pre-chopped versions if you want to reduce chopping time.
