When most people think of produce, they envision summer bounties: fresh tomatoes, ripe peaches, basil bursting with flavor.

But what they neglect to realize is that there are different foods in season at all times throughout the year. Yes, that means winter, too. There are lots of hardy vegetables that are made to consume when the temperature cools – and if this feels like news to you (or something you’ve known, but neglected to abide, for years), then read on for our simple guide – alongside some of the recipes you can use as guides for making the most of them.

Beets: Roasted Root Vegetable Toss

Throwing together our roasted root vegetable toss is one of the simplest ways to get some seasonal produce in your diet. It’s one of those dinners that’ll leave you feeling nourished and grounded – and it’s sure to become a part of your regular weeknight rotation.

Pumpkin: Pumpkin Muffins

Whether you’re roasting pumpkin (or its Japanese cousin, the kabocha squash) with olive oil and sea salt, or looking for something more indulgent, like our pumpkin muffins, these Vitamin A-rich, antioxidant-packed powerhouses are sure to improve your diet and your day.

Cranberries: Hazelnut and Cranberry Thumbprint Cookies

When you think of using fresh produce, cookies may not be the first thing that comes to mind. But make our hazelnut and cranberry cookies with fresh berries and we’re willing to bet you never do it another way again.

Cauliflower: Roasted Cauliflower with Pomegranate and Hazelnuts

Hearty and healthy are the two words we aim for when we’re preparing our winter meals–and this nutty, creamy, zingy melange of winter fruits, toasted hazelnuts, and roasted cauliflower tossed in an herby yogurt sauce delivers on all fronts and more.

Kale: Chicken, Kale, and Cannellini Bean Stew with Dill Pesto and Kale and Rice Cakes with Dipping Sauce

In its raw form, kale is a cruciferous vegetable with many and varied health benefits. Raw kale is also decidedly not for everyone. In the forms we recommend it, though, it’s sure to please any crowd. Whether you’re opting for the perfect snack in the form of a kale and rice cake or going for a more filling alternative with our stew, you can’t go wrong–and you’ll boost your health in the process.
