About this time of winter, I am really really feeling like I need more veggies in my life. I don’t know about you, but as much as I love vegetables, since it’s so cold outside, I often skip the veggies in favor of something hearty and warm. I decided that maybe I just wasn’t doing it right, so I’ve tried to step up my game and really explore what winter vegetables have to offer.
Kale, butternut squash, brussels sprouts, and cauliflower are known to be a few good cool weather vegetables since they’re hearty and grow in colder climates. Our Kale actually kept on going in our garden until late November! This week I had to go to the market since our garden is buried in snow, but I was able to find these veggies from relatively local farms. I’ve rounded up my top favorite recipes for these four winter vegetable staples that I think you’ll really love (and you’ll get those much needed vitamins and minerals that we lack in the colder months!) Let’s go!
