We cannot ignore the fall season any longer. It’s here. Time to embrace it and all the wonderful things that come with it! Versatility is the name of the game when it comes to fall produce! When the air is crisp and the leaves start to fall, you’ll love these recipes that showcase the season’s best flavours.
No, it’s not a super large scallion – it’s a leek! Related to both onions and garlic, but with a milder and sweeter flavour, leeks add a delicious kick to any dish. They can be used in nearly everything from soups, salads, served alone as a side or even cooked into quiches and gratins. We feature leeks in a delicious French-inspired dish with chicken and a lemon caper cream sauce (available online now!)
Sweet and mild, rutabaga is a hybrid between turnips and cabbage and is often overlooked in markets due to its intimidating reputation but believe it or not, this root vegetable is extremely easy to cook and even tastier to eat! We encourage you to give rutabaga a chance in our recipe (available for delivery on November 2) where we make rutabaga fries. You won’t notice the difference in the taste but your body will thank you because rutabaga boasts many health benefits such as high levels of Vitamin C and anti-cancerous effects when incorporated into one’s diet. We’re convinced!
Parsnips are a cold weather root vegetable that look like ivory-coloured carrots and have a deliciously nutty flavour. While they look gourmet and intimidating to use, you can actually use them the same way you would carrots or potatoes. The natural sweetness of parsnips take on a deliciously nutty flavour when roasted which is exactly what we do for our Sirloin Steak dish (available for delivery on November 9).
Pears are typically thought of as a fruit to be eaten only in its natural state but it’s actually as versatile as the apple, especially during its peak season. Forget using pears in only desserts but think outside the box and incorporate them into savoury dishes – you’ll thank us! In our Pork Tenderloin dish (available for delivery on November 16), we use pears to add a sweet punch to a delicious dish.
