Sometimes, when the weather’s cool, our cravings steer toward heavier foods and sweet treats; but, it’s easy to make sure you’re getting your greens too. When you think about eating your greens, you might think of salads and sides that are best reserved for summer, but there are plenty of ways you can sure you’re getting regular helpings of green vegetables and salad leaves during the colder months without compromising on warmth and heartiness.
Be it spinach, zucchini, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, garden peas, leek, asparagus or perhaps some crunchy snow peas, all year long there are delicious greens at your local grocer waiting to be steamed, baked, fried, boiled, grilled, barbecued and, best of all, gobbled up.
No matter your dietary requirements – whether you’re gluten-free, vegetarian or otherwise – there are a tempting variety of dishes you can devour and warm up with over the winter months that still see you eating your greens. Never fear, these are no rabbit-food recipes; think rice, pasta, soups, bakes, bread and frittatas. Yes, please!
Check out the recipe ideas below, and watch this spiffy video to see how you can whip up a speedy pumpkin, spinach and crunch topped pasta bake.
