80+ Easy Fall Recipes You'll Want to Make All Season Long

When the months turn chilly, we start craving heartier foods &mdash the kind of stick-to-your-ribs comfort food that warm you up and give you energy for all kinds of outdoor activities. But what we're not looking for are big, complicated dishes that take hours and hours to make. Especially with Thanksgiving approaching, who wants to spend a lot of time in the kitchen? There's plenty of time to cook on Turkey Day.

If you're on the same page as us, then there's no need to scour your cookbooks any longer. These fall dinner ideas are exactly what you've been looking for. Whether you're in the mood for a comforting soup, quick casserole, or classic chicken dinner, this list has it all. And it doesn't matter if you're preparing for a dinner party or just need a new weeknight meal for your loved ones, we have both. If you're worried about the little ones eating these meals, don't worry: Even the picky eaters in your family will be polishing off their plates.

And although these dishes are perfect on their own, we have a few ideas that will take your dinners to the next level. We recommend enjoying these recipes with an autumn-inspired cocktail and finishing everything off with a fall dessert.

13 Vegan Risottos To Keep You Warm This Fall

Cooler days and longer nights are upon us, which means comfort food season has officially arrived. It's time to hunker down with warming foods like French onion soup, macaroni and cheese and lasagna. Okay, so our favorite comfort foods happen to contain copious amounts of cheese. Guilty as charged. But there are plenty of comforting recipes that contain no cheese at all -- and sometimes, they're even vegan. We're thinking specifically of vegan pot pie, vegan soba noodle dishes, and one of our all-time favorites, vegan risottos.

While we're admittedly huge cheese fans here at HuffPost Taste (have you seen our trick for getting the creamiest cheese sauce of all time? We made a video, because it's that important), we also value vegan food. This time of year we especially love nourishing food that doesn't weigh us down, but makes us feel good from the inside out. Vegan risotto is one of those foods. It's hearty, healthy and fortifying. What's more, the gradual process of making risotto is a great excuse to linger by the stove for warmth, and to slow things down a bit.

When most people think of risotto, they often think of cheese and butter. Dairy is by no means necessary for a creamy risotto, however. First, you can easily substitute olive oil for butter. Next -- and hang on, this isn't as hard for us to admit as you might think -- omitting the cheese isn't going to hurt you! The key to a creamy risotto is in the rice and the slow, steady stirring. Cheese is just a bonus. Risotto is traditionally made with short-grain rice, namely Arborio rice, which has a higher starch content than long-grain rice. The starch contributes to the creamy texture. Slowly ladled liquid and constant stirring is the other key to risotto's creaminess. While adding cheese in at the end doesn't hurt, it's simply not necessary for a rich and satisfying dish.

What about chicken stock, then? That's not mandatory either for a standout risotto. Vegetable stock, especially if it's homemade, can do wonders in a risotto dish. Mixed with some wine, and flavorful vegetables like onions, the base of your risotto can be even more exciting than chicken stock.

Don't believe us? Here are 13 vegan risotto recipes to convince you. Once you see how simple and rewarding vegan risotto can be, you'll be coming up with your own creations in no time.

16 High-Fiber Foods and Recipes That’ll Make You Want to Eat Them

You’ve probably heard: Most of us need to eat more fiber. American adults average a measly 10 to 15 grams per day. This, when the recommended daily amount to help prevent disease and promote good health is more than 25 grams.

Fiber, also known as “roughage,” keeps our bowels moving and our guts healthy. It also helps regulate cholesterol and blood sugar. So, what gives? Why aren’t we eating enough? Blame our love affair with processed foods.

Where is fiber found? In vegetables, legumes, fruit, and grains. Sit tight, we’re going to wow you with everything you need to pump up your diet with fiber. Warning: Take it slow if you’re a fiber newbie. Too much, too fast can cause gas, bloating and even constipation if you fail to stay hydrated.

1. Split peas

Say hello to this quiet superstar legume — the split pea. Split peas are seriously full of fiber —16.3 grams per cup, cooked. But they’re also high in carbs at 41 grams per cup, and easy to eat too fast.

So, treat them as a side dish like dhal, or a starter like soup to a meal that also features healthy fats. Filling and hearty enough to keep a vegetarian running, this split pea soup is easy-peas(y).

Yellow split peas give color to this South Asian riff on comfort food, lentil and spinach soup. Seasoned with healthy spices, turmeric, coriander, ginger, and chili peppers. And it’s finished with ghee, yum.

2. Lentils

Keep a bag of lentils — brown or green — in your pantry, and you’ll never go hungry. These kitchen all-stars will cook in minutes — and they don’t need a pre-soak! A cup contains 15.6 grams of fiber.

And sure, you can turn lentils into an awesome salad (just toss warm, cooked lentils in a little lemon juice and olive oil), but classics are classic for a reason. Try this ham and lentil soup, chock full of carrots, onions, and celery.

Feel more like a burger than soup? This recipe for lentil quinoa burgers with sautéed mushrooms transforms lentils into a juicy burger patty, seasoned with garlic, cumin, and lemon, and topped with mushroom sauce.

3. Black beans

When corn comes into season in summer, black bean salad is what you want. Soooo good with anything cooked on the grill.

But in winter, we use them in this vegetarian black bean and sweet potato chili.You can just imagine it, can’t you, the sweetness and comforting carbs against the smoky heat of chipotle peppers?

Oh, and black beans have 15 grams of fiber per cup, and are great sources of folate, manganese, and thiamine — nutrients that will make you feel awesome.

4. Lima beans

Let’s be honest. Limas are one of the most hated vegetables. It’s probably because many of us grew up pushing boiled frozen limas under a lettuce leaf.

But we’ve got news, people. Limas must be cooked with bacon! These starchy babies need help. Like this easy Texan recipe for limas with bacon, which brings out their creamy tenderness and seasons them real good, y’all.

In this leek and lima bean soup with bacon, the beans and leeks are sautéed in bacon fat, simmered in chicken stock, and then puréed into a naturally creamy soup.

These recipes make limas taste so seriously good we’re going to start calling them by their old-school name, “butter beans.” With 13.2 grams of fiber per cup, we’re starting to like butter beans!
