HelloFresh Recipes That Help Me Embrace the Fall Flavors in the Sunshine State

Geraldine Orentas

As you can imagine, transitioning from one season to another in Florida makes not much of a difference: from the hottest to middle hot, too hot, to the hottest again.  When fall arrives, we don’t get to romanticize it like other states. Yellow and orange leaves? Chill temperatures that make us dress in beautiful coats? It sounds like something we can only experience on our Pinterest boards.

But thankfully, HelloFresh has given us a hand in experiencing Fall with their seasonal food and spices. Even with this tropical weather, we get to taste pumpkin spice and everything nice.

A Meal for Every Season and Moment of The Year

If you haven’t heard of it, HelloFresh is a meal subscription offering a weekly menu with pre-proportioned ingredients delivered right to your front door.

Since the ingredients are ready to go and the recipes take 15 minutes or less, cooking has become an enjoyable experience. My husband and I now take long breaks from restaurants and takeouts to stay and eat at home. Not to mention all the money it has helped us save!

You can set your meal preferences when subscribing, including the number of people you live with and dietary specifications, such as Veggie (my absolute fave!), Fit & Wholesome, Pescatarian or Quick & Easy. You can change your plan whenever you want. For example, I change it for six or more people when I know I’m having my family coming over.

Exploring Fall Meals under the Florida Sun

With over 40 weekly recipes and more than 100 seasonal and convenience items, HelloFresh has helped us to keep up with every season and festivity with fun, easy and quick meals. This fall is no different, so let’s get into the five recipes that will submerge you into a pile of orange leaves.

1. Autumn Risotto with Butternut Squash, Sage, and Pepitas

To taste the first fall harvest, nothing like some roasted butternut squash in a creamy risotto combined with earthy sage and nutty parmesan cheese. This is one of my favorite vegetarian dinners for this time of the year.

2. Autumn-Spiced Pork Chops

For the carnivore of the house, the most magical fall touch is these golden pork chops spiced with HelloFresh’s blend of Fall Spice blend, which includes cinnamon and cumin and a touch of, yes, magic. I’m also an enthusiast for this dish, but only because of the roasted Brussels sprouts and baked sweet potatoes slathered in honey butter on the side.

3. Fall Harvest Kale Salad

If you’re looking for a light dinner and to enhance your fantasy of having an orchard where you can harvest all your fall goods (my absolute dream), this is the perfect meal. All you need is 15 minutes to toss tender kale with roasted Brussels sprouts and delicata squash, dried cranberries, and give it a touch of honey Dijon dressing.

4. Creamy Pumpkin Soup 

Of course, we can’t leave behind Autumn’s main protagonist, pumpkin! Trust me, this is much easier than carving a pumpkin to make a lantern. With caramel notes of roasted pumpkin and pecans, you can curl up with a blanket and get the right cozy fall vibes.

5. Fall Pasta Primavera

Thank you, HelloFresh, for giving this vegan pasta a fall twist for the season with pan-roasted parsnips, carrots and beets. In less than 30 minutes, I already had a seasonal and delicious lunch with a well-deserved amount of parmesan cheese on top.

A Subscription That Affordably Fulfills Your Cravings

HelloFresh has become one of our favorite meal subscriptions with its variety of recipes and high-quality fresh ingredients (did we mention they run on renewable energy?). No more improvised trips to the grocery store, no more buying ingredients we’ll never use. With HelloFresh, everything’s scheduled and prepared for you.

If you don’t get the super characteristic Autumn experience, don’t worry! HelloFresh can’t take you there through their recipes, filled with magic and cozy fall flavors!
