We would lie if we would claim that we don’t want to have a neverending summer. But then again… what kind of summer was this? A summer which seems to be way too short and of rainy, unstable weather. Or maybe, were we just working too much?
Now it’s September and this might not be the official beginning of autumn, but in our sense, summer ends with August. Instead of crying after summer, we rarther get excited for this autumn with colorful veggies! And let’s be honest, who doesn’t like a rainy day spent in bed with a homey casserole? Here are 8 recipes that just taste better in autumn.
Pumpkin is THE testimonial of autum – ‚Look at me, I am as colorful as a whole season!’. Whether you cook, bake or blend it, prepare spaghetti squash or pumpkin purree – there are neverending possibilities! Come closer pumpkin, we love to see you again – also to cook these recipes.
Cauliflower could be the vegetable with the most beautiful name. Even though its season is almost over, we still have some days left to have fun with this guy. Julia didn’t like cauliflower until Isa marinated and baked it, but since then we meet cauliflower from time to time on our plate. Don’t throw away the good leaves but use them in soups or even marinate and bake them to until they are crispy.
Sorry cauliflower, now that we think of it, maybe sweet potato is our favorite name for a vegetable. In a way, you might think that potato season is all over the year and you can get it everywhere. But then again, we really feel stronger about sweet potatoes in autumn, maybe because of all those savory, warm, comfy recipes we’re already looking forward to. Sweet potatoes from Germany are available from October on and here’s what to cook with them.
Of course there’s not just vegetbales in autumn, but also apples full of vitamins that want to get stolen from the neighbour’s garden (hihi!). Maybe try out more sorts of apple this year and find your new favorite one! You can find more and more traditional „old“ sorts of apples on markets called „Finkenwerder Herbstprinz“, „Zuckeräpfelchen“ or „Prinz Albrecht von Preußen“. Hihi. Serve them in salads, desserts, chutney and more. How about these two recipes?
