Fall is nearly here and you may be wondering what to do with all those vegetables – especially if you’re new to the growing (or cooking!) scene.
My favorite fall vegetable that really rings in the season – pumpkins! I like to get a few varieties and place some on the front porch (until I cook with them) and immediately cook with the rest.
Pumpkins are surprisingly versatile. You could make anything from pumpkin bread to pumpkin chips with just one pumpkin. I love what the fitnessista did with hers. If you want to know how she makes pumpkin baby food, chips, hummus, puree and smoothie add-ins, you should check it out.
Then there’s one of the simplest veggies to use and grow, zucchini. You can easily create a:
Saute – slice the yellow or green zucchini lengthwise into quarters, chop slices & place in a skillet with olive oil, salt, pepper, fresh garlic and top with grated parmesan
Pizza – a fave for the little ones. Again, slice the zucchini into quarters, spoon out the centers with seeds and fill like you would a pizza (marinara, mozzarella, pepperoni) and pop in the oven until the cheese crisps.
An awesome thing about growing your own using a GreenStalk is that you don’t need to worry about who handled your veggies at the grocery store or what pesticides were used when they grew it. It’s simply clean and delicious “au naturale.”
