It's not quite Christmas, and it's not really Autumn anymore. What's in season and what was soooo last season? We don't want turkey yet, and we're definitely over Halloween. Here is what foods are at their peak right now and what beautiful dishes to make!
Surprisingly, November is a special time for some of your favourite fruit and veggies. These include lettuce, onion, parsnip, pear, peppers, carrots, cauliflower, apples, dates, kale, cranberry (ready for that turkey of yours!) and sweet potato to name a few. All of these goodies are bursting with nutrients and are waiting to be laid on your table on Christmas day. However, before we get ahead of ourselves, let's see what you can get cooking up in the kitchen now.
3 Potato Soup
Well hello, comfort food. Oh, how we need you when we're sniffling and spluttering in our beds. Potatoes will always be there for you, even when no one else is! This beautiful soup consists of red potato, sweet potato and Yukon gold potato, especially delicious during November. Sweet potato just turned to sweetest.
Hazelnut & Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies
Our speciality returns! Nuts scream winter and these cookies give a sense of warmth to the home. Super crunchy, super gooey and super sweet. Perfection! Who needs cookie scented Christmas candles when you have the real deal lingering through your house (that is actually edible!)? Better yet, our Funfetti Gookie Dough is nom-worthy!
Sweet Potatoes With Marshmallows
I can hear you screaming 'WHAT?!' but at least hear us out, ok? Scrape the potato out of the skin, blend it with cinnamon and nutmeg (festivity) to create a bizarre but beautiful concoction. Then pipe the potato back into the skin, add mini marshmallows and there you have it. The only question I ask is whether it's the main meal or a dessert?
For those of you lovelies who are vegan, this one's for you. Loving your Pumpkin Spice latte and want a slice of cake to go with eat? Hola, paleo pumpkin roll! A light and fluffy almond based cake with a gorgeous cashew buttercream.
Hawaij Apple Pie
Ha-what? My thoughts exactly. This peculiar combo is a Yemeni spice mix which is so easy to make at home. Mix ginger, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg together, so very autumny! Impress your guests and put a twist on that British classic.
Happy nectarous November! Which dish is your choice?
