Now is a great time to expore fall vegetables!

Fall is a beautiful season that brings with it cooler weather, changing leaves, and delicious seasonal produce. While summer may beknown for fresh berries and juicy watermelons, fall has its own range of delicious vegetables that are perfect for cooking hearty and flavorful meals. In this blog post, we will explore two of the top fall vegetables to try and provide some delicious recipe ideas to inspire you in the kitchen.

1. Pumpkins

Pumpkins are a staple of fall and are not just for carving for Halloween. These versatile vegetables can be used in savory dishes like soups, stews, and curries or in sweet treats like pumpkin pie or muffins. They are rich in beta-carotene, vitamin C, and fiber, making them a nutritious addition to any meal.

Recipe Idea: Roasted Pumpkin and Sage Risotto


1 small pumpkin, peeled and cut into cubes

1 onion, diced

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 cup of arborio rice

3 cups of vegetable or chicken broth

1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese

Fresh sage leaves, chopped


Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

In a large baking dish, toss the pumpkin cubes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Roast in the oven for 20 minutes or until tender.

In a separate pot, sauté the onion and garlic until soft.

Add in the arborio rice and stir to coat with the onion mixture.

Slowly add in the broth, stirring constantly until absorbed.

Continue adding broth and stirring until the rice is al dente (about 20 minutes).

Stir in the roasted pumpkin, grated Parmesan cheese, and chopped sage leaves.

Serve hot and enjoy your delicious fall risotto!


2. Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts may get a bad reputation, but when cooked properly they are a delicious and nutritious addition to any meal. These mini cabbage-like vegetables are high in vitamin C and vitamin K, as well as antioxidants that can help protect against chronic diseases.

Recipe Idea: Maple-Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon


1 pound of brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved

4 slices of bacon, chopped

2 tablespoons of maple syrup

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

In a large bowl, toss the brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Spread them out on a baking sheet and roast for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

In a skillet, cook the chopped bacon until crispy and then remove from the pan.

Drizzle maple syrup over the brussels sprouts and toss to coat.

Return the brussels sprouts to the oven and roast for an additional 10 minutes.

Once done, remove from the oven and top with crispy bacon pieces.

Serve hot as a delicious side dish or enjoy as a tasty snack!
