I hope everyone is having a great fall so far. One of my favorite things about fall is all the colors. Not only are the trees colorful, but the food is colorful too. Fall crops provide a rainbow of colors with everything from orange squash to purple rutabaga! I put together a few of my favorite classic and unconventional recipes that I thought personified the taste of fall.

Fall is one of the best seasons for vegan and vegetarian recipes because all the crops are being harvested. Some of my favorite crops to use are: Fennel, Okra, Squash, Kohlrabi and even sunflowers! Squash is one of the most abundant crops during the fall and is great for making hot soups, lasagna, or pie. I love these vegan and vegetarian squash recipes.
