7 apple and pumpkin recipes to try this fall

Fall, what a great time for picking apples and pumpkins! What we also particularly love are the baking days that follow. Every year, it’s always the same: we’ve picked too many of these fruits and we don’t know what to do with them! But after sampling these delicious plant-based recipes, you might decide that you need even more apples and pumpkins in your kitchen!

Discover which one of these seven plant-based recipes will become your new favourite.
