Happy first official day of Autumn!
To celebrate, let’s talk fall produce: what is in season that can be spiralized. Move over zucchini, the sweet potato is in town!
Pfft, like we’d ever give up zucchini noodles ;-)
I love this time of year the most. I’ve always preferred crisper temperatures. While I love the beach and being in the sun, I only like that some of the time. The rest of the time, I prefer chunky sweaters, t-shirts, and jeans. I love being cozy, I HATE being sweaty and overheated.
Plus, fall time in New York City is the best time of year, in my opinion. Spring is pretty nice too, but there’s something relaxing about fall – everyone’s back from all the crazy summer traveling, the city’s less bustling, and it smells better (ha – it can get pretty grimy in the summertime.)
Most importantly, my tastebuds prefer fall flavors! I could eat sweet potatoes and kale all day, every day. Just a preference.
For those of you who are worried that fall is done and now there’s nothing to spiralize, there’s actually MORE to spiralize in the fall! That’s mainly because root veggies tend to be larger and more spiralizer-friendly.
Here’s a list of what’s in season this fall (slash early winter) and my favorite spiralized recipe for each veggie/fruit.
- Butternut Squash (late fall)
- Broccoli (they’re sweeter in the fall/winter)
- Sweet Potato
And my favorite recipes for each veggie/fruit are:
