The bounty of summer is undeniable, but can we tell you a little secret? We’ve been counting down the days to fall, waiting for the moment we could embrace all of the wonderful produce that comes into season when cooler weather hits. And while you may be just as excited as we are, you may be feeling a little overwhelmed and unsure how you can make the most of what the season has to offer. Thankfully, we are here to help!
Here are the most delicious fruit and vegetables that are in season now and our favourite ways to fill up on them. But be quick! It won’t be long before they’re gone from the markets.
This may just be our favourite fruit of autumn, even if they are technically available year round. Whether you’re having Kanze apples or Cortlands, there’s not much better than biting into a fresh, crispy apple on a cool day. Grab The Pro or The Pick-Me-Up or warm up with a nice pot of The Apple Protein Overnight Oats.
These gorgeous purple vegetables may have come into season in the summer, but they’re still abundant and fresh through the end of fall. Make these Ottolenghi Soba Noodles with Aubergine and Mango to let them shine.
Pumpkin and Squash
These days, pumpkins are pretty synonymous with fall. You find them in lattes. You see them as decorations. There’s not much these gourds can’t do! Cosy up with a warming bowl of our Kabocha, Butternut Squash & Quinoa Curry or make a gluten-free version of this Healthy Pumpkin Bread.
The colour enough is to scream fall, so you know that sweet potatoes will be at their very best when there’s a little chill in the air. Pick up The Bedrock or our Sweet Potato, Coconut & Chilli soup to get your fill of this golden tuber.
Earthy, ruby beets are some of the true gems of autumn. They’re great roasted or even eaten raw; there are endless possibilities for how to enjoy these versatile veggies. Sip on The Glowor The Iron Man or indulge in something a bit more warming, like our Beet Bourguignon.
Ah, what a pair (pun intended!) apples and pears make. These sweet fruits are the picture of the season, and they’re fantastic when eaten out of hand or baked into something delicious. Looking for more ways to eat it? Try The Black Beauty or The Cup of Youth. Or you can get creative and whip up a Caramel Pear Crisp that’s both gluten-free and vegan.
