Last week, Kansas City experienced the first snow of the season. Which immediately prompts me dig out my favorite “go to” recipes I like to make during the cold winter months. I’m always on the lookout for new recipes to showcase at upcoming holiday gatherings. Here are just a few that I have found so far.
Berbere Roasted Carrots with Oranges inspired by his Ethiopian roots, Chef Marcus Sammuleson created this beautiful dish of roasted carrots, red chili peppers, fenugreek, cardamom, coriander, and ginger. I can only imagine how this combo of spices will smell like the holidays.
This Thanksgiving rather than showing up with the traditional salad I found this recipe from the New York Times. Made with thinly sliced apples, walnuts and fennel. Fennel is a vegetable I don’t have experience cooking with, but love the the warm, anise flavor.
Are you a planner and appreciate a delicious recipe you can make a head. Try this Freezable Caramelized Onion and Kale Stuffing by popular, food blogger Deb Perelman over at Smitten Kitchen.
Looking for fresh, but most importantly local ingredients to make your holiday recipes? Our friends over at Greenability Magazine, Kansas City’s favorite magazine for local news, events, resources, and products that promote sustainable living, compiled a helpful list of local farmers markets, wineries and other local businesses to source ingredients grown right here in Kansas City.
Enjoy and happy cooking!
