What To Spiralize In The Fall

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.

  • Apples
  • Butternut Squash (late fall)
  • Beets
  • Broccoli (they’re sweeter in the fall/winter)
  • Cabbage
  • Carrot
  • Celeriac
  • Kohlrabi
  • Pears
  • Radishes
  • Rutabaga
  • Sweet Potato
  • Turnip

And my favorite recipes for each veggie/fruit are:

  • I've always said rutabaga makes the best-looking fettuccine noodles. Interesting thing I found in my oriental grocery in Dallas yesterday -- konjac root so NOW I can spiralize my own no-carb konjac noodles!! Was that a find or what!!Of course I got my usual fat carrots, Japanese Daikon for tacos and other carb subs like noodles and rice plus a juicy jicama that has already been noodlized. I'm working with a mother/son client set that hasn't ever spiralized so I do them so they can taste them and use them before they buy their own spiralizer.
  • That cauliflower steak looks SO good. I am a big fan of making them; topping them with caramelized onions is the best! I look forward to using that cauliflower steak recipe from your cookbook. :-)
  • This is a fabulous post. I always get sort of "stuck" when summer turns to fall. Can't find anything that seems right to wear and don't know what to cook. This really will help me get over the cooking "hump". Now could you please fix my closet?
    • This inisthg's just the way to kick life into this debate.
  • Love this post! I can't wait to try some of these! Thanks for the round-up!
  • Az most folks this time of year, I am overwhelmed with zukes (and pumpkins). Some friends have indicted that they won't refuze any and all I have...so...since they are being so accommodating, I am going to give them a bagful but also introduce them to some spiralizd ones! Letz see how they handle THAT! I'm directing them to your website too.
  • That's a moab-drelker. Great thinking!
  • Colour me impressed. All it takes over here to send people creaming for the government teat is a couple of inches of the white stuff (which, according to the BBC, was everywhere? when in reality it fell in parts of the south where the BBC people live - and almost nowhere else).I used to have to put up with stuff like this when I was a kid. I'm too soft to put up with it now. I'd go nuts. Then I'd light a fire. :)
  • the Rev. Mark Wojdelski , pastor of Holy Family. Hey, I know him! He was stationed at St. Clement’s in Ottawa for a while just after ordination—glad to hear he is doing well!
  • Increíbles. 10 horas!!!! es que hacer galletas es cansadísimo, y eso sin decorarlas que yo no sabría ni por dónde empezar…Ayer, a la una de la mañana, al pandoro le dio por desinflarse, no me puse a llorar de milagro. 27 horas de trabajo!!!!! en fin… o respiro hondo y vuelvo a intentarlo, o prendo fuego a la cocina, cosa que no es plan… )Besinos Teresa
