The air is getting crisper, the days are getting shorter, and the leaves are turning orange, yellow, and red. It can only mean one thing: fall is here, and with it comes all that delicious fall produce. No one is more excited for the season than our chefs at Gobble, who have crafted a fall menu for you that you won’t be able to resist.
Fall Produce Guide
When the first frost of the year threatens your soil and all the leaves change colors, it’s hard to believe that anything is still growing. You might think that you’ll have to wait until spring rolls around to enjoy fresh vegetables again, but fall produce can be just as rich as the summer harvest. Apples are at peak sweetness, carrots can be harvested year-round, and garlic—yes, garlic has a season—is the best in fall.
Fall is an excellent season to take advantage of fresh fruits and vegetables. The rich and earthy vegetables combined with crisp and succulent fruits are the reason fall is so closely associated with the harvest. As we’ll see in this article, salads, squash, and fresh apples are some of the best fall has to offer.
When you have a meal kit service from Gobble, you’ll get to experience all these seasonal fruits and vegetables in new and exciting ways. With Gobble’s Classic Plan, it takes just 15 minutes from box to table to prepare a seasonal meal you and your whole family will love.
Fall Vegetables in Season
Vegetables are a centerpiece of the fall harvest. Among others, these offerings include:
● Sweet potatoes
● Fava beans
And of course, pumpkins!
With so many leafy and nutritious vegetables available in the fall, salads are a favorite choice. And speaking of salads, another fascinating fall option to look out for is kale. Everyone knows that kale is a superfood packed with nutrients, but some people find it too bitter, especially when eaten raw. If your experiences with kale have been lackluster, it might be because you’ve been eating it in the wrong season. As the weather cools, that bitterness that makes people turn up their noses at kale is replaced with an understated sweetness you’d never expect.
If you’ve been wanting to incorporate kale into your diet, but just couldn’t find the right recipe, Gobble’s got you covered with their Panzanella Kale Salad with Hearty Vegetables and Red Pepper Vinaigrette. The colors pop in this salad, making even the most salad averse eager to take a bite. Personalize the salad to fit your preferences and dietary needs, and become kale’s number one fan this fall.
Fall foods are kids’ favorites. Put Gourmet Pear & Brie Grilled Cheese with Butternut Squash Bisque on the table and you’ll be shocked at how easy it is to get your kids to say yes to their veggies. This spin on a classic kids’ comfort meal is something your whole family can enjoy. With squash at its best in the fall, the bisque will be so sweet and rich with flavor that the kiddos will be dipping their grilled cheese in it with gusto!
We all know pumpkins are a fall staple, with jack-o-lanterns lighting up doorsteps, roasted seeds being made as an easy snack, and of course, pumpkin pie. But if you’re in charge of bringing dessert to Thanksgiving this year, why not change it up with Gobble’s Thanksgiving Hazelnut Pumpkin Spice Souffle Cake? Ready to go in 15 minutes, your dessert will be the star of the show!
Fall Seasonal Fruits
We’re not about to let vegetables steal the show, however! There are plenty of Gobble menu items that incorporate fall seasonal fruits. Enjoy a savory dish complemented by the sweetness of fresh fruit.
Some of the best fall fruits include:
● Passion fruit
Apples, in particular, are an excellent fall offering. There is nothing like a fresh apple, picked right off the tree. Gobble is committed to providing only the freshest ingredients right to your door.
