Maple Recipes To Make This November

It’s time to set the table and invite beloved family and friends over to pass the potatoes and exchange gratitude. November is the month for gathering, and eating. While there are the traditional dishes we serve each year, we thought we may be able to add flair to your menu with maple. If you’re wondering what to serve for dinner this season look no further than the recipes below.

Maple can be worked into any recipe you want to whip up in November. Add a hint to enhance the flavor of trusted recipes or amplify sweetness of desserts by using a cup! No matter the quantity, we assure you’ll taste a welcomed difference. From salads to dessert, there’s always a place for pure maple syrup at the table.

Spruce up the menus of seasons past with these new recipes we love!

Fall Panzanella

We love panzanella. It’s a bread salad! And the toasty chunks absorb all the flavors inside the bowl. This particular panzanella celebrates the season’s harvest. The savory essence of this salad is balanced with pickled red onions for a brighter bite. Maple is added to each element of the dish but never overpowers. Enjoy this dish for lunch and dinner until the first strawberries ripen in spring. (On another note, if you decide to skip stuffing this year, this panzanella would make a star substitute!)

Maple Sweet Potato Bowls with Halloumi and Sausage

Maple and sweet potatoes are a match made in culinary heaven. We love to puree sweet potato with maple, encouraging the ingredients to bring out the best in each other. We thought what better way to enjoy a sweet potato puree than as a base to build a bowl upon? We add sausage and salty halloumi and then proceed to layer the bowl with fresh apple slices and juicy pomegranate seeds. We finish the bowl with chopped chives and a generous drizzle of maple syrup for a lunch or dinner that will leave you feeling full. This dish can also be served as an appetizer that will leave you wanting more!

Autumn Salad with Maple Shallot Vinaigrette

Apples! Potatoes! Leeks! There is a lengthy list of seasonal ingredients to celebrate right now and we’re doing so by throwing them all into a big bowl of greens. Find a fall lettuce mix that has leaves of peppery arugula and textured kale in it. To that mix, add in a blend of toasty ingredients and fresh, juicy ones. We like cooked potatoes and leeks alongside zesty Honeycrisp apple slices and plump pomegranate seeds. (If you’d like to use sweet potatoes in place of the butterball potatoes, you are welcome to do so!) All of this is coated with a creamy dressing for a salad you’ll crave again and again!

Pumpkin Risotto

The maple in this risotto emphasizes the pumpkin’s subtle sweetness and balances the heat from the chile flakes. Got leftovers? Mold them into balls and fry them into delectable arancini.

Maple Flatbread

Delicata squash grows abundantly in the autumn and can be used in a plethora of recipes throughout the season. For as long as your squashes last, we recommend trying them as a flatbread topping at least once! They’re sweet and savory tasting notes pair well with salty pancetta and a drizzle of pure maple syrup. This recipe can be put together with ease, and quickly, for a weeknight dinner.

Leek and Potato Soup with Maple Bacon

If a loaded potato took the form of soup, it would be this recipe. Pureed with leeks, garlic, shallot and onion and topped with hearty bits of maple bacon and creamy maple yogurt, every spoonful is a heap of flavor. This is a perfect way to stay warm when the evenings get chillier.

Maple Roasted Carrots with Herby Green Sauce

Sometimes you can achieve big flavor with little effort. These carrots are one of those recipes. The carrots, which only need to be sliced and tossed in maple syrup, become slightly caramelized in the oven. The herbaceous, and slightly spicy, green sauce adds a refreshing balance to the carrots and all that’s asked of you is to toss all those ingredients in a blender. You may have to keep a close eye on the pepitas as they toast to keep them from burning, but that effort is worth it when you crunch on this salty reward. Layered together, you present a show stopping dish that didn’t make you break a sweat.

Maple Carrot Hummus

Maple roasted carrots bring both flavor and color to this favored dip. Creamy, a little sweet and sort-of spicy, this hummus will brighten up the dinner table after a long winter. Hummus is easy to make and is the perfect mid-afternoon snack, dinner dip or spread for vegetable heavy sandwiches.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sort of cake-y, kind of crispy, these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies balance the best of both worlds. The centers are soft and chocolate-y while the edges are crisp and crunchy. Better yet, all your favorite fall flavors unite in this treat! Savory pumpkin is electrified by the warm aromatic blend of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger. A rich, robust maple flavor is present thanks to the sugar and bit of syrup stirred in. It all results in a scrumptious batch of 24 cookies that will be gone in under 24 hours. Enjoy these with a warm glass of cider under your favorite blanket while watching the amber leaves fall!
