Fall, the season for comfort food, is right at our doorstep. There are so many ways in which you can take advantage of this season. From quick and tasty apple recipes to pumpkin recipes, there are so many ways you can create this season’s authentic flavours. It’s time to share all the fruits and vegetables you can’t miss out on this fall.
As mentioned above, throughout September and October, apples reach their most delicious state. Sweet and tart flavors are not the only things that apples are known for. Apples are rich in fiber and polyphenols, and a combination of these two can lower your cholesterol. Not only are they delectable, but healthy too. You can use them as a main ingredient of any delicious recipe for this season.
From late summer to early winter, broccoli is at its best. You can eat it baked, roasted, steamed and raw. It has a great impact on the detoxification of your body. For breakfast, broccoli goes best in combination with an omelette. As for the dinner, you can try it as a side dish to chicken or beef. It is a great combination to boost up your body vitamins and immune system.
As long as you don’t drown them in sugar, cranberries can bring both nutrients and tartness to your table. Cranberries are rich with phytonutrient powerhouses which have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous properties, not to mention that they are great antioxidants. The only down side of cranberries is that they are available only throughout this short period of time which is from mid-September to the end of November, so make sure not to miss them this year.
Even though they are not as popular as other fall vegetables, parsnips have a nutty flavor that can improve the taste of almost all roasted dishes. The best part about parsnips is that they are low in calories and they contain only six grams of fiber. They are rich with folate, a B vitamin that strengthens both your red and white blood cells.
Last but definitely not the least on our list, pumpkins! One of the most popular buys throughout the season. You should make a dish using this season’s most recognizable ingredient at least once or twice, especially because pumpkins are rich with the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Make sure you get your personalized engraved cutting board to help you create as many recipes as you can think of using these delicious fall produce.
