Roasted Acorn Squash with Wild Rice Stuffing: This autumn dish will be sure to satisfy with its zestful combination of wild rice, cranberries and pecans. 

Winter Greens Lasagne: This flavorful pasta dish is made with kale and Swiss-chard. 

Savory Onion and Leek Tart: This dish combines caramelized onions, sautéed leeks, crème fraîche, and herbs. 

Mushroom and Fennel Bread Pudding: In place of stuffing, try this bread pudding, which features mushrooms, sage and cheese.

(Bonus: Reducing your intake of meat also has positive environmental effects. A 2006 United Nations report found that the meat industry produces more greenhouse gases than all vehicles combined.)
