Eating from the Fall and Winter Garden: Recipes for Coconut Coleslow, Scarlet Colcannon, Smoked Gruyere Polenta and More


winter radishes 

Oh, I can hear you now! “A little coleslaw, a couple of radishes on salad, and several pumpkin pies, but then what?!” Is this what’s stopping you from growing a fall and winter garden? You need a shot of imagination, and some interesting recipes! That’s why I’m here. Enjoying a fall garden requires thinking outside the box and expanding your culinary repertoire. 

Fall and winter crops provide lots of color and deep flavor to your meals. Sometimes it’s just making an old favorite with new varieties to create a different color palette. Or it might mean spending time with a really great new vegetable or variety thinking about how to highlight its unique flavors.

Favorite Winter Meals

Read on to learn how to make a few of my family’s favorite winter vegetable dishes. One is a main course that celebrates my husband’s Scottish roots, two are hot and hearty side dishes, and two are crisp and cooling treats to serve alongside spicy winter stews. Give them a try and let me know how your family likes them.

Colcannon was once a Scots leftover dish which used up potatoes and cabbage from the evening before. Now we dress it up with vibrant color, healthy antioxidants, and creamy, garlicky mashed potatoes.
