What are the Best Vegetables to Cook in the Fall?
When Thanksgiving time nears, our cuisine reflects the bountiful autumn harvest. It’s a good idea to buy locally grown, seasonally available vegetables, because they are usually fresher, less expensive, and have a higher nutritional value. For instance, some anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C, folate and carotenes will rapidly decline when stored for long periods of time. Plus, you are less likely to be exposed to harmful toxins. Many countries across the globe have very relaxed laws about chemicals being sprayed on fruits and vegetables that other countries have banned due to their known harmful effects.
Here are some seasonal favorite vegetable recipes you’ll love.
