Some delicious seasonal vegan recipes of the season
Meals with Seasonal Vegan Recipes taste best made with vegetables fresh from the harvest. Whoever cooks seasonal recipes does not only have especially vital-rich fruit and vegetables on the table but also shops at regional markets at favorable prices.
Every month of the year offers us fruits and vegetables that can be consumed locally. Are you a big fan of using those products that are currently in season?
Seasonal cooking has many advantages: you save the environment, live healthier, save money and eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. Sufficient reasons to test some new seasonal seasoning ideas or not?
Cook seasonally and eat fresh harvested
In our supermarkets, we have fruit and vegetables in large selection available all year round. But by no means, all of this is currently in season. Do you know which plants are being harvested? Not exactly? Then you are like the majority of consumers. There are many advantages to cooking seasonally: What has a season in your country does not have to be transported far and that protects the environment. However, it is still worthwhile to pay attention to the proof of origin. Even in the season, fruit and vegetables are often transported unnecessarily far.
Seasonal vegan recipes good for your health, the environment, and your wallet
Plants that are in season grow almost by themselves and contain all natural nutrients. Outside of the normal ripening season, producers need to help properly with hothouses, fertilizers, and pesticides. Seasonal vegetables are therefore healthier than fruits and vegetables out of season. The measures mentioned of course cost money and that makes fruits and vegetables more expensive. If the same plant is growing in masses in the local fields, you will also get it cheaper.
Seasonal fruits and vegetables are just tastier.
If you eat seasonally you eat more diversely, because more and more different fruits and vegetables come to the table over a longer period of time. Especially winter vegetables offer more variety than you might think. Last but not least, seasonal fruits and vegetables are also tastier. Anyone who has ever had access to the deliciously-looking strawberries in winter knows that the watery fruits just cannot keep up with the sun-drenched summer strawberries
What is currently in season?
If you want to cook seasonally, you first need to know what’s growing. Proof of origin and price give first hints, however more accurate information provides a seasonal calendar, as you can find it on the Internet In the summer, the choice is naturally greater, but even in winter, there is a large variety of seasonal vegetables. The winter vegetables include, for example, a variety of cabbage like cauliflower, kohlrabi, etc.), or root vegetables like parsnips, carrots, beet varieties, certain salads and leek, Fennel, squash, chestnuts, Jerusalem artichokes, and Pumpkin. With this selection, you are sure to remember the first recipe ideas, right?

CRUSTED JERUSALEM ARTICHOKES WITH BELUGA LENTILS, KALE, AND HARISSA
Despite their name, Jerusalem artichokes are actually a member of the sunflower family and have no relation to Jerusalem or artichokes. The small, gnarly-looking tuber somewhat resembles ginger root. The flavor is earthy (which can actually be overwhelming if not complemented with the right foods), slightly sweet and similar to a water chestnut. The texture is less starchy than a potato, and for this, they’re often recommended for diabetics. Recipe here
Vegan spanakopita is delicious and quite easy to put together if you are lazy like me and use shop-bought phyllo pastry. I may attempt a homemade phyllo at some point but now is not that time. Plus the instructions are already on the long side as I really want you to get it right and love it, so shop-bought pastry it is.
