As spring slowly creeps into site, the season for cabbage and Brussels sprouts is coming to an end. If you’ve overlooked these wonderful sources of vitamin C (and at 60 – 120% of you recommended daily value, they’re vitamin C superstars), now is your chance to give them a try while they’re still in season and at their sweetest. These recipes are not the boiled to a pulp, drowned in vinegar, lackluster veggies of unfortunate childhood experiences, but rather, vegetables that are worthy of the pickiest of food critics.

Cooking in the fall can be as beautiful in color as the leaves on the trees. Pumpkin and squash provide a rich palette of oranges. Apples offer shades from red to green like trees half-changed. Corn brings hints of yellow. Whole grains provide the counterpoint of muted browns as a background for the bright colors for a feast that is as lovely as it is healthful and delicious.
