Fall Vegetables and Some Cooking Ideas

Here in the Northeast United States, the growing season for vegetables and fruits is coming to an end.

Some vegetables, though, continue to be harvested. Still available at local farmers’ markets are cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, leeks, parsnips, collard greens and some salad greens.

Several ideas for using the above:

• Cauliflower gratin

• Roasted broccoli

• Sautéed Brussels sprouts

Potato-leek soup

• Mashed parsnips

You forgot celery root! (a.k.a. celeriac) I've been buying it recently at farmer's markets up here in Boston. It's heavenly cooked & pureed in soup, or mashed like potatoes.
