From the author, Stefan Bloom: Growing up in New England, apple picking was a big deal when fall came around, and part of that was ending up with so many more apples than you could ever possibly need and eating them all the time for what seemed like months. Which is maybe why I love apples and especially these Stuffed Baked Apple, (some sort of fruit-related Stockholm Syndrome, maybe) and why it doesn’t feel like fall to me without a serious apple glut.
Which is to say that you don’t get much more fall than this: apples, stuffed with nuts, raisins, oats, and warming spices, and baked until they’re tender but not totally falling apart. Go ahead and substitute any nuts or dried fruits you want, and you can even play with the spices – ground ginger, allspice, even a little black pepper would be great. It’s easy, delicious, and perfect for the season.
From Plant-Based on a Budget: A super easy to prepare recipe which is likely to impress your friends and family!
Apples are so much more than just a snack. You can create countless delicious dishes with these sweet fruits and we are happy to give you some ideas. These Stuffed Baked Apple are one amazing example, but the list goes on and on!
Apples are a key ingredient in one of our favorite parts of the holiday feasts, stuffing. A classic (plant-based) apple pie is a must-bake every fall and a perfect way to use up those apples you so gladly picked with your family. But it doesn’t end there, you can make super-easy apple sauce and cozy warm and spiced apple juice to invoke the Christmas spirits. We really love apples!
