One of our new favorite ways to prepare salmon, this recipe poaches the fish in a a savory soy glaze to keep it perfectly moist, and pairs it with a fresh, tangy slaw. Prep some rice the day before, and you have dinner done in 20 minutes.

It’s a vegan-friendly batter that includes a little protein powder for extra satiety, and a little pumpkin for … extra autumn-ness.

Plus more runners-up …

We couldn’t stop there! We had a few more recipes we had to recommend for your fall menus, from a warming vegetarian pasta to a Greek-style guacamole, to spiced cinnamon cookies. Check them out in your meal queue now!
