10 Cozy and Healthy Recipes To Make This Fall

A collection of cozy and healthy recipes to make this fall. Lightened up comfort food! Including soups, casseroles and even pot pie!

Cozy cozy! Can you tell I like to use that word this time of the year? I may or may not go a little overboard with it.

But bear with me because today we talk comfort food! That’s lightened up!

A collage of four photos of lightened up comfort food recipes.

The kind of food you make and then go sit on the couch with all curled up in a blanket. Well, at least that’s how I operate.

But also the kind of food that won’t leave you completely and utterly weighed down. It’s all about that balance.

And I have plenty of awesome recipe ideas for you to make this season.

So many of these are ones that I make over and over in my kitchen, but are older recipes and get buried in the archives of this site.

So we’re bringing em’ back today! Let’s get to it! Cozy and healthy recipes heres we come!

Mexican Pot Pie and Turkey Stuffed Peppers.

Mexican Pot Pie with Sweet Potato Biscuits

Veggie-packed pot pie with a mexican flare. And homemade biscuits stuffed with plenty of sweet potato. So much happiness in each bite!

Turkey, Wild Rice and Cranberry Stuffed Peppers

It’s like all the flavors of Thanksgiving rolled up into a stuffed pepper.

White Bean Salsa Verde Chili and Crockpot Farro Chili

White Bean Salsa Verde Chili with Lentils and Quinoa

Freezer meal right here! And probably our absolute favorite chili. Especially when served with creamy dreamy avocado. And lots of chips.

Crockpot Vegetarian Chili with Farro

Another freezer meal! Make this in advance and it’s ready to go whenever you need it. Plus, you can really have fun with all the toppings.

Butternut Squash Pasta and Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta Skillet

So creamy and dreamy … butternut squash works magic in this fun pasta dish. And there’s rosemary involved – my favorite.

Not that I want you to get sick, but this is awesome feeling-under-the-weather soup. And the crockpot does all the work – bonus points.

Eggplant Rollatini Casserole and Farro Sloppy Joes

Eggplant Rollatini Quinoa Casserole

All the goodness of eggplant rollatini with wayyy less hassle. And quinoa!

Vegetarian Farro Sloppy Joes

Sloppy joes scream comfort food to me and this is a fun vegetarian twist with my favorite whole grain, farro! Tangy, saucy, and just plain fun.

Couscous Soup and Chipotle Chicken Soup

Roasted Vegetable Soup with Couscous

Served up with a loaf of crusty bread? Perfection. Plus, if you’re short on time, you can roast the veggies in advance so they are ready to go come dinnertime.

Hearty Chipotle Chicken Soup

Smoky and full of flavor, we always have leftovers of this soup. Perfect for lunches during the week!
