Fall Fest: Making the Most out of This Season’s Harvest
Oct 11, 2016
It’s officially fall time – the air is crisp, party stores are flooded with children purchasing their favorite Halloween costumes, fall foliage sprinkles the sidewalks, and the smell of apples and pumpkin spice fill the air. Fall brings lots of joy, and we’re excited to get back to the kitchen this season and spend time simmering stews, warming soups, baking, and indulging in other forms of cooking to help us get cozy as the temperatures drop. Plan your perfect fall menu with these decadent autumn recipes that showcase the season’s best flavors.
One of our favorite fall vegetables? Carrots! These sweet-yet-earthy tasting root veggies make a versatile addition to any recipe and are chock-full of good-for-you nutrients, including vitamins A, C, K and B8 along with folate, potassium, iron, copper, and manganese. Turn up the oven for this fragrant and delectable Roasted Carrot & Apple Soup. Enjoy as a starter course or a stick-to-your-ribs lunch.
Beet it Up
This fall, give beets a chance to show off their full nobility with two beet-centric recipes. This Beet & Bean Salad Crostini is the perfect, no-fuss appetizer or hunger-quashing afternoon snack. Craving something doubly sweet and savory to indulge in? Jazz up the classic beet and brie pairing with this party-ready recipe for Pastry Wrapped Roasted Beets and Brie.
Spice up a Classic
Potatoes are a steadfast staple in a wide range of cuisines, and there are many ways to serve them – whether it’s roasted, baked, fried, or mashed. Dress up your classic potato dish with this Creamy Potato and Tuna Bake, made with Libby’s® Sliced White Potatoes and Sweet Peas. It’s a satisfying entrée that will banish the autumn chill and bring comfort and warmth straight to your dinner table.
