Fall haul: 13 harvest vegetable recipes FTW

Kale and Squash

Absolutely not too good to be true: something this delicious CAN be ready in just 35 little minutes. The kale gets crispy, the sausage juicy and, well, squash is always a good time. Sheet pan dinners are the best. Get the recipe: Sheet Pan Sausage, Squash and Kale

Sweet Potatoes

Get cozy with some healthy carbs. You can dress up your sweet potato however you like, but we’re fans of crunchy bacon, sour cream and a drizzle of maple syrup. Get the recipe: Maple-Bacon Sweet Potatoes

Something magical happens to broccoli in the oven: The florets get crispy, the stems tender—and there are definitely some natural sugars showing off. Get the recipe: Zesty Roasted Broccoli

A bowl of thick, hearty soup is what fall is all about. Carrots are mild and sweet and play nice with sweet syrup and tangy Dijon. Garnish with a sour cream swirl. Get the recipe: Maple Carrot Soup
