Harvest Moon Squash Soup

This chowder-style soup showcases the hearty, nutty goodness of wild rice. The dark brown grains are gluten-free, rich in nutrients, and native to North America, where they’re harvested in early fall. Serve with an arugula, watercress, or spinach salad.Recipe

Sweet Potato Bisque

This sweet and savory soup could almost be a dessert soup, as ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon are spices you find in many sweet potato and pumpkin pie recipes. The onion and garlic temper the sweetness, however, with a savory boost in this comforting recipe. Recipe

Shepherd’s Pie

image32

This plant-based version uses a wide variety of flavorful vegetables. The recipe makes a full six to eight servings—and it reheats well at the end of a busy weekday. Its flavors intensify overnight as the vegetables and mushrooms meld into the sauces.  Recipe
