Good news foodies – Chef Christophe is giving you a sneak peak into his favorite fall foods.
After surviving a stifling and record-setting summer here in Atlanta, we’re greeting fall with open arms. Sweater weather is just around the corner and that means it’s time for some fresh, fall recipes. As the weather changes, so should the way we eat. To get the most out of the season, opt for ingredients that capture the best of fall’s flavors.
In no particular order, here are chef Christophe’s eight go-to fall recipes:
Roasted Parsnip Soup
This warm and comforting dish features parsnip, apple and onion. It’s finished off with olive oil, salt and pepper. Simple and satisfying, we see this pairing with an autumn salad for lunch or dinner. The recipe is paleo, vegan and gluten free – no prep, no mess, no post-meal guilt. It’s also available on this week’s menu.
Fall Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad
This crunchy veggie is full of phytonutrients to fend away cold season. The best tasting brussel sprouts peak from September to mid-February, just in time for fall. We love this shredded sprouts salad with dried cranberries, pecans, gorgonzola and pears. It’s topped with a delicious, homemade maple-balsamic vinaigrette, making it an instant fall favorite.
Chicken Pot Pie
Next up, Christophe’s chicken pot pie. You will love this medley of fresh vegetables and chicken, all tossed in our creamy homemade bechamel sauce. Biting into this flaky puff pastry will bring you right back to your childhood kitchen table and give you all the fall feels.
Whole Stuffed Roasted Pumpkin
Let’s be real – pumpkin is the superstar ingredient of the season and is perfect for fall decorating and diet. This colorful fruit (that’s right, fruit) boasts incredible health benefits and looks amazing as a table centerpiece. We love the idea of using the entire pumpkin as the meal and focal point for your next fall affair with this hearty recipe.
Autumn Butternut Squash Casserole
Butternut squash should be a staple in your fall food diet. Although slightly silly in appearance, when cooked, squash releases delicious sweetness. This savory dish made with butternut squash, roasted pears, toasted walnuts, creamy gorgonzola cheese is sure to be a crowd pleaser at the dinner table. You can find it on this week’s menu.
Apple Beer Soup
Embrace soup season with this apple, brie cheddar and beer combo. It’s made with caramelized onions, fresh apple, and thyme, then topped with a cinnamon pecan oat crumble – we can smell these fall foods cooking in the pot already. This hearty soup will be your go-to recipe for Sunday football. The recipe calls for a fall beer of your choice. We recommend going with one of these top rated pumpkin ales.
Grilled Citrus Chicken
Redefine your idea of comfort food with this healthy yet hearty dinner option. Christophe starts with a bed of fresh butternut squash, leafy kale, and zucchini, then adds juicy chicken and lemon zest. A sweet and tangy honey lemon sauce is drizzled over the top to pull all the fall food flavors together. This dish can be delivered to your door and saves for five days – fresh food delivery at its best.
Slow-Cooker Beef Chili
The ultimate fall comfort food, this is the only slow cooker chili recipe you’ll need for the season. Made with guajillo, ancho and pasilla chiles, this cozy dish packs a serious punch of flavor. It’s great to serve at your next tailgate or to whip together on a Sunday to serve throughout the week ahead. Don’t forget to top with sour cream, cheddar and red onion as a finishing touch.
