10 Recipes for a Cozy Fall Season

Chosen Team

Fall is here and that means shorter days, cooler nights, and lots of PUMPKIN. As magical as this season is, it never seems to last long enough, so let’s make the most of it while the leaves are still falling. We’ve rounded up the most heartwarming autumn soups, bakes, and bites—all savory and perfect for sharing—from the Chosen Foods original recipes catalog.


1. Pumpkin Chili

Pumpkin and chili are twin flames; they’re hearty, heartwarming, and most appreciated in autumn. Our new Pumpkin Spice Chili recipe arrives just in time for October alongside a recipe for Pumpkin Cornbread. Share these fall sensations with loved ones and friends over a campfire, a movie night, or good conversation.

2. Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Smoky bacon, bright lemon juice, and sweet honey provide a much-needed makeover that balances out any bitterness. Roasting in mild-flavored avocado oil helps to crisp the Brussels sprouts, resulting in a moist, crunchy side dish for the fall season or any time of the year.

Roasted Pumpkin Ginger Soup

3. Roasted Pumpkin Ginger Soup

Those sweet baby pumpkins are good for more than just pies! Roasted pumpkin adds a depth of flavor to soups and stews and is paired well with rich herbs and spices. Ginger, carrot, and sage enhance the sweet pumpkin flavor in this creamy soup and make for a comforting evening meal.

In contrast with fresh, light and often fruity summer salads, this Caesar, with roasted Brussels, Parmesan cheese and homemade breadcrumbs, is just the type of salad you want to enjoy in the crisp, fall air.

5. Smokey Stuffed Chipotle Peppers

These vegetarian peppers, filled with quinoa, black beans, zucchini, sharp cheddar cheese, cilantro, and our smoky Chipotle Ranch Dressing, showcase the delicious ingredients of Mexican cuisine in every bite.

6. Pumpkin Spice Deviled Eggs

We put a fun, fall twist on deviled eggs just in time for Halloween! Get crazy with the toppings or leave off the toppings altogether. Either way, the filling is absurdly delicious on its own.

7. Indian Spiced Carrots

The sweet crunch of carrots pairs well with rich Indian spices in this unique side dish.  The Toasted Sesame Oil and anciently-used pungent spices are both high in antioxidants, making this side dish more healthful than just enjoying carrots on their own.  The wide array of spices gives a deep, complex flavor that makes these veggies pretty addicting!

8. Savory Marinated Pork Chops

Marinated in our Apple Cider Vinegar Dressing, then seared and roasted in the oven, this pork chop recipe is sure to be your new favorite fall staple! With the cinnamon-sweetness of homemade applesauce to complement the savory notes, it’s a healthy, balanced dish that’s great as a main item or a potluck recipe.


Whole Roasted Ranch Chicken & Rosemary Sweet Potatoes

9. Whole Roasted Ranch Chicken & Rosemary Sweet Potatoes

Nothing says “fall” like the irresistible aroma of chicken and herbs roasting in the kitchen! With this recipe, marinate your poultry in our avocado oil based Ranch Dressing and serve with a fragrant side of rosemary sweet potatoes.


10. Lemon Garlic Acorn Squash with Cilantro Pesto

This unique take on a traditional fall squash recipe tastes just as vibrant as it looks! To enjoy, combine basil, cilantro, oregano, red chilies and pine nuts into a one-of-a-kind pesto and drizzle over Lemon Garlic roasted acorn or delicata squash.
