Testing Fall Recipes from Pinterest [Vegetarian]

Now that it’s nearly November, the blistering heat has started to let up a bit and I am throwing myself full-force into the autumn spirit. This includes lots of pumpkin scented candles, cozy leggings, and most of all: fall recipes! Over the last week, I’ve tested out three fall recipes that I’ve found on Pinterest. Let’s take a look, shall we?

5 Ingredient Thai Pumpkin Soup

This soup was so yummy, and only took a few minutes to make! Plus, it was cheap – a very welcome factor in my college budget. The ingredients were simple: pumpkin puree, red curry paste, vegetable broth, coconut milk, and red chili peppers. Unfortunately, my local produce store was out of red chili peppers, so I substituted jalapenos. I know jalapenos aren’t really used in Thai dishes, but I still wanted that element of heat. Funny story though; this was actually my first time working with jalapenos… I scratched my nose after chopping them and I was in SO much pain! I had to stick my nose in a mug full of milk to get the burning sensation to go down. The pain was worth it though, because the end product was so good. This is definitely a repeat dish!

Cheesy Garlic Spinach Spaghetti Squash

This might just be the most aesthetically pleasing meal I’ve ever made. You serve it using the squash as a bowl, how freaking cool is that? It was also a rare vegetable dish that my boyfriend actually liked; in fact, he was upset that I made him share a half of the squash with me instead of giving him an entire half!

Note: This dish is super rich. Cream cheese, heavy cream, parmesan, mozzarella… Make sure to eat a salad afterwards or something, so you don’t get tummy troubles. 😉

Honey Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes

I am actually eating this right now, fresh from the oven. It was a perfect dish to make on a lazy Sunday morning, and now my whole house smells of sweet potato and cinnamon. It was also very affordable and easy to make; all it took was three sweet potatoes, honey, butter, and cinnamon. This is not as sweet as some sweet potato dishes; if you really like to load up on the sweetness, I would suggest adding brown sugar and vanilla extract.

Those are the fall dishes I’ve tested! Don’t they look good? Have you gotten in the holiday cooking spirit yet?
