Three Seasonal Recipes to Make Right Now
February 14, 2020
It may not be farmers’ market season just yet, but there are still plenty of fruits and veggies in season in February. If you want to eat more seasonal produce this month, try one of these mouth-watering recipes.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Warm Honey Glaze [Bon Appetit]
Brussels sprouts are actually in season all winter long, so now is the perfect time to try the bite-sized veggie. This simple recipe dresses them in honey, vinegar, butter, and a dash of red pepper for a subtle kick. Lemon zest puts a citrusy twist on the delicious side dish.
Honey and Spice Poached Pears [The Kitchn]
Looking for something sweeter? Look no further than these poached pears. Simply peel and halve your in-season pears, then poach them in a mixture of water, honey sugar, ginger, cloves, and a couple of other spices. You can eat the pears warm or let them soak up the sweet liquid overnight.
Lemon-Roasted Potatoes [Food Network]
Lemon and potatoes are both in season right now, so you get bonus points if you make this side dish! It’s easy enough even for the novice chef—the hardest part is peeling a pound of Yukon Gold potatoes and slicing them into one-inch pieces. After that, all you have to do is toss them in olive oil, fresh garlic, salt, and pepper, and roast them in a mix of lemon juice and chicken broth.
