Yes, there will be cookies. Gingerbread houses and pies filled cinnamon and clove. There will be rich, creamy things and tender, meaty things. But what about winter veggies?
Of the many foods that the holiday season gets right, it’s those winter vegetables. But they’re often spooned onto dinner plates as a side or – in some cases – forgotten altogether.
There’s something to be said for deep hues of red, orange, and green in your bowl. Those hearty greens and sweet, starchy vegetables bring out the best in any meal. If you’re stuck in a veggie rut (ahem, like a sheet pan of roasted sweet potatoes e’ry night) then try one of our favorite winter vegetable recipes. We think your kids will like them too.
