Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. The leaves are falling down and it can be cold but not unbearable. During fall I always seem to crave food that is warm and comforting. There are so many awesome foods that I love to eat during fall time and so I found it very hard to pick the top ten comfort foods for fall.

Top 10 Comfort Foods for Fall:

1. Potato Soup

Potato soup during fall just tastes so good. Between the finally chopped celery you put in it, carrots, onions and butter to taste, you’ll find that this soup is perfect for fall. Other favorite fall soups include broccoli soup, tomato soup and lobster soup. A lot of the soups you can change and alter according to your own personal taste.

2. Baked Butternut Squash

You can find butternut squash in stores throughout the year but during October is really the best time to get them. Butternut squash not only taste great but it’s also easy to make. The one thing to remember when making butternut squash is that this vegetable is starchy and tends to be higher in calories compared to other vegetables. Eat this one within moderation. Butternut squash has a nutty and sweet flavor. It’s a great dish to have with pasta or rice. If you would like to eat something that is lower in carbs then butternut squash, I recommend spaghetti squash. You’ll be amazed at how great this taste and it’s healthier for you.

This is another one of those dishes to where you might consider making some variations according to your taste. Some of the changes you might alter include the stuffing and vegetables you put in it.

Chicken pot pie is a famous dish throughout the year but there’s something about having it during the fall that makes it taste even better. There are lots of chicken pot pie recipes available or either if you don’t have the time to make it yourself, you’ll find some microwavable chicken pot pies but those just don’t seem to be the same as homemade chicken pot pie. If you are a vegetarian you’ll also find vegetarian pot pie recipes for fall available.
