Recipes from Denise's Test Kitchen

The sweet mama--or kobocha--squash is a bit sweeter and drier than other winter squash, and often used in place of sweet potato or pumpkin in dishes. Case in point: use your sweet mama in this Chimichurri Pumpkin Bowl. It is crazy good!


Savoy cabbage is one of the prettiest of the bunch and is great for adding to soups and stir fries because it hangs together well. Case in point: this lemony toasted quinoa and wilted cabbage salad. You can eat it because you're eating clean or it's good for you (which it is!), but I eat it because it's delicious!

I'm going to state the obvious: it is cold! In our household, that means soup-making time. Soup for lunch, soup for dinner--warm, delicious soup. We love this hearty roasted carrot, turnip & red lentil combination. Soup's on!

Let's squeeze all of the juicy goodness remaining in Apple Month! These carrot apple muffins leave out unhealthy stuff like bad fats and refined sugar & flour, and leave in a mouthful of moist deliciousness in every bite. They rarely stick around for longer than a day or two in our house (of two!)

Full disclosure: I haven't made this, but I'm totally going to when my shares arrive tomorrow! Dark chocolate and red berries are perfect together, and I can't wait to try this cherry and chocolate tart.

What? You still have beets left over? I've got just the recipe for you. Thanks to member Rhia Perkins for this delicious looking beet hummus recipe.
