6 comfort food classics for Fall

We love fall for the earthy scent of the leaves, the breathtaking colours, and best of all, the delicious comfort food! There’s nothing better than curling up under a wool blanket on a Sunday afternoon with a pumpkin spice chai latte. Pretty irresistible, isn’t it?

Vegetable soup

You’ll taste the flavours of Québec in every spoonful. A hearty bowl of soup can be remarkably comforting, especially with the abundance of affordable vegetables in harvest season! September and October are the best months for cooking with leeks, carrots, squash, and more.

Apple crumble or pie

After a day of apple picking, what’s the best way to use up those five pounds of fruit? Bake a pie or crumble, of course! The flavours of cinnamon and nutmeg marry perfectly with freshly picked Cortland apples. Paired with a cup of herbal tea, this seasonal treat is one of life’s simple pleasures!

Vegetable stew

Whether it’s your grandmother’s recipe or your own concoction, there’s something about vegetable stew that draws us back to our roots. Fresh local ingredients and familiar flavours make this stew a fall favourite.

Roast turkey

After waiting in the wings for most of the year, turkey takes centre stage the first weekend of October. This popular holiday meal never fails to conjure our fondest family memories. And the best part? Leftovers to last a week!

Macaroni and cheese

Ketchup, three different cheeses, extra bacon — it’s easy to add your personal touch to kick this recipe up a notch. This classic dish is perfect for chilly October days and a great way to ease into winter mode.

Brownie in a mug

In a mug? That’s right, a mug! It’s the perfect recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth and make clean-up a breeze. Eggs, flour, sugar and a hint of cocoa; two minutes in the microwave and voilà — heaven in a mug!
