Autumn is in full swing! The leaves are brown and golden, Halloween is around the corner, and the pumpkins are in the patch, waiting to be collected and used for seasonal recipes. Now is the time to indulge in seasonal meals, whether there are favourites or ones you’ve never heard of before. All the ingredients are in the shops, and the weather is just right for a cozy night in with some delicious dairy-free food. Make choosing an excellent meal easy for yourself by checking out the list below.
Vegan Pumpkin Pasta
Vegan pumpkin pasta is just as simple and delicious as it sounds – and it’s dairy-free. The pasta is made with spaghetti and a pumpkin sauce made from puree. You can add any kind of vegetable you like; mushrooms and broccoli are excellent choices, and if you miss cheese it’s harmless to sprinkle some vegan shredded sheese on top. This is a warm cozy meal for a chilly night-in while watching Netflix or a quick lunch mid-week.
Vegan Pumpkin Soup
Sticking with the pumpkin theme and the vegan theme, we have vegan pumpkin soup. This one is a tried and tested classic that always tastes best in the autumn when the pumpkins are in their prime, and after you compare your options. It’s best to use fresh pumpkin if you can, which can be complemented with butternut squash and sweet potato. Sometimes the pumpkin can be a bit bland on its own. Add spices to flavor and serve with crusty bread – delicious.
Vegan Chilli Mac
Do you love chilli? And do you love mac and cheese? This recipe combines those two amazing meals into one super meal you can’t resist. Vegan mac chilli is made with delicious spices, beans, veggies, and vegan sheese, all mixed up with macaroni. When you have followed the simple recipe, you can play around with various extra toppings such as vegan sour cream, avocado, and tortilla chips – who said being daily-free was boring.
Maple Glazed Carrots
Maple glazed carrots are a traditional thanksgiving side, and if we’re honest, the Thanksgiving table is their natural home. However, they can be enjoyed on any table at any time of the year. Traditionally these carrots were baked, which can take quite some time. Luckily, this recipe is one for preparing them on the stove so that you can have maple glazed carrots on a Sunday with your roast potatoes. The recipe is 100% dairy-free and can be oil-free, too, if you replace the oil with vegan butter.

Stuffing is an excellent addition to a weekend meal and basically essential to the Christmas spread. This easy vegan stuffing recipe will work with any type of bread; you can even use basic white bread from the cheap aisle so long as it’s dairy-free. However, for best results, choose a baguette or any fresh homemade bread you like. The recipe is easy to follow and result in one of the best stuffing recipes you’re likely to find.
