Eating in Season


Try to cook with vegetables and fruits that are in season.  They will be fresher, healthier, tastier, cheaper and you can buy them locally.

A yummy way to eat many of the vegetables in season is to roast them in the oven.  Spread onions, asparagus, carrots, beets and any other solid vegetable you like on a baking sheet in a single layer.  Drizzle the veggies with olive oil and then salt and pepper to your taste.  Many people roast for 10-15 minutes.  I like to roast them a bit longer-more like 20 minutes.  Watch asparagus carefully.  It seems to roast a little quicker than some of the root vegetables.

If you like beets consider eating them raw.  I like to peel them and grate them along with carrots.  The two  veggies combined, give a rich earthy taste.
