It’s officially November- and officially time to celebrate the flavors of Thanksgiving- hearty, comforting foods and rustic, earthy veggies. Yesterday, I went to my local Whole Foods to stock up on my favorite face lotion and body butter for the dry winter months (I LOVE their natural body products and their rich moisturizers)! While I was there, I couldn’t resist the temptation to browse the gorgeous produce section and be inspired for new Fall recipes.
They had such lovely looking produce- it reinforced my love of November and the beautiful way that God created food to grow in the exact season that you crave it! In the fall, nothing tastes better than a creamy potato soup, a sweet apple crumble, a roasted root vegetable medley, crisp and sweet pomegranate and juicy persimmon…and what do you know? That is exactly what is in season!
November’s Best Produce:
-Kale, Collards, and other greens
-Leeks (PERFECT for potato soup)
-Watercress and salad greens
Now, when you read that list- I hope you get excited! This is going to be a fun month of cooking- and a great time to explore new ingredients and combinations. Cheers to November!
