Seasonal Winter Produce
Just because it ’tis the season, does not mean there aren’t any fresh produce to go around. As always, feel free to use frozen fruits and vegetables as they are just as nutritious as fresh and makes for a nice quick and easy option with more variety as well. Utilize these fresh fruits and vegetables in some new ways. Get creative! As you can see, many of these root vegetables (such as winter squash) would make great winter soups and stews.
- Brussels Sprouts
- Onions and Leeks
- Sweet Potatoes and Yams
- Winter Squash
