As an added bonus, many of these fall veggies, like squash, pumpkin and cauliflower, can pull double duty. They can easily be added to other dishes to boost the nutrient content without altering the taste, but they can also stand on their own as the star of various recipes.
If you’re not quite sure how to use all these wonderful vegetables, here are a few suggestions:
- Squash – Stuff with a mixture of whole grains and lean meats or cheeses and bake for an easy dinner; puree into sauces for pastas and casseroles; or slice into rings, season and bake!
- Pumpkin – Use it in breads and muffins to add fall flavor or replace some of the oil; dice and roast for a dinner side dish; puree with Greek yogurt and stir into creamy soups. It’s a great source of Vitamin A!
- Cauliflower – Slice into “steaks” and grill; pulse in the food processor to turn into “rice”; chop, season and roast or blend with Greek yogurt and cheese to make hearty & flavorful sauce.
- Kale – Massage with oil and make a large salad; chop and add to soups and casseroles; or bake into chips! It’s rich in vitamins A, C & K and is also a good source of calcium!
- Apples – Apples and Cheddar are a classic pairing this time of year and these fall flavors are perfect in so many different recipes, from breakfast to dessert! We also have a great guide that you can use for pairing your favorite Cabot cheeses with a variety of different apples.
Challenge yourself to try a new vegetable this fall! You just might find a new favorite!
Here are a few delicious ways to enjoy fall vegetables:
Cabot Cheese Board Member and avid gardener Cassie Johnston of Back to Her Roots is all about cool weather veggies! Fall vegetables like pumpkin and winter squash are great storage crops. A warm, dark spot is all you need to keep squash good for months. Cassie stores squash in her closet (right next to her shoes!). Having a constant supply means she can make yumminess like Baked Parmesan Pumpkin Fries or Butternut and Apple Bisque anytime she wants.
