Keep Your Winter Eating Fresh with These Common Foods
These tasty produce options will help keep your winter recipes fresh and nutritious.
Kale may seem like an intimidating winter vegetable to use in recipes, but it’s quite simple to cook with! It has a delicious, bold, earthy flavor which is excellent for fresh salads, kale chips, and kale juice. It's also packed with nutrients such as calcium, iron, and protein.
Crafting a tasty kale juice only requires a few ingredients – a bunch of fresh kale, ¼ of a cucumber, a lemon, and two fuji apples. Rinse the kale, cucumber piece, and apples, and slice them into pieces that fit into the juicer. Then, peel and slice the lemon. Juice everything together for a refreshing drink.
Clementines are delicious and help boost your vitamin C intake, so they're great winter food! They have a very sweet flavor and are usually seedless, making a great snack.
You can create a delicious spicy carrot clementine juice from this winter fruit. You’ll need about eight carrots, six clementines, four chunks of turmeric, and about one inch of fresh ginger. Peel and slice your produce before juicing.
Pomegranate has a delightful flavor that's sweet and tangy, almost like cranberries! You can easily make tasty pomegranate apple juice to enjoy in the winter. This recipe only requires apple juice, pomegranate juice, and black salt. Juice the pomegranate and apples, then serve with a sprinkling of black salt.
Sweet potatoes are an excellent winter vegetable that's comforting and versatile. They offer a delicious, lightly sweet, starchy flavor.
A great recipe to make with sweet potatoes is sweet potato gratin. You'll need butter, garlic, fresh herbs, heavy cream, grated parmesan, sliced sweet potatoes, shredded gruyere cheese, and spices. You'll create a comforting sauce with the herbs and cream, which will be poured over the sweet potato slices in a baking pan. Then, pour the sauce and sprinkle cheese on top before baking.
Winter squash is full of nutrients like vitamins A, C, and B6. The list of winter squash includes acorn, butternut, pumpkin, and spaghetti. Each has a light flavor that's quite versatile, from nutty butternut squash to slightly sweet spaghetti squash.
The best way to enjoy these winter gourds is by making roasted winter squash. Carefully slice your squash of choice in half, remove the seeds, and drizzle olive oil over the interior. Then, add your seasoning of choice. Finally, roast it in the oven for 30-90 minutes (depending on the type and size of the squash).
You can reach for Brussels sprouts for a smoky, sweet, and slightly nutty flavor. Like winter squash, Brussels sprouts taste great roasted. Rinse the sprouts, dry them well, toss them with olive oil and seasoning, then add them to your oven for roasting.
You can also roast brussels sprouts in an Air Fryer Toaster Oven. You'll need a much smaller amount of oil when air frying, making your recipe even healthier. This air fryer is compact and features a nonstick baking pan, so you won't have to worry about any brussels sprouts getting left behind.
