4 Foods in Season This Month
Looking for a few of our freshest meal kits to start the year off right? Here are four foods and meal kits that are in season this month.
Kale is more popular now than ever. This dark, leafy superfood is packed with nearly 3 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, Vitamins C, A, and K, and healthy fats like Omega-3.
Kale’s just for salads, right? Wrong.
We try to sneak in kale into a wide variety of dishes so you can experience it’s hearty flavor in new ways. Try adding kale to your favorite pasta dish. The unexpected crunch will add just the right amount of texture to a creamy dish. Our partner, Prevention, has created the delectable Linguine with Braised Kale dish pictured above. Sauteed with turkey sausage, this fiber-rich dish will keep you full, without the guilt.
We’ve also snuck kale into our signature Turkey Kale Soup. Spicy shallots, hearty ground turkey, and a plethora of fresh veggies come together in this satisfying soup to give unexpected complexity to an otherwise simple supper. This is the perfect way to enjoy what’s left of winter, without weighing you down.
Love a good, citrusy zest on your plate? Who doesn’t?
This month, incorporating oranges, lemons, grapefruits, and other citruses into your meals will create a truly light and fresh taste that will have you dreaming of summer.
If one of your resolutions is to up your game in the kitchen, we’ve got the perfect dish. The Ahi Tuna Au Poivre with Warm Artichoke-Farro Salad by Robert Irvine is a gourmet creation that you’ll be dying to sink your teeth into. Semi-seared tuna is accompanied by a myriad of unique flavors, such as Mandarin oranges, create a unique dish that will make you feel like a professional chef.
If you’re looking for a different take on a common salad, try our signature Beef Chipotle with Orange Radish Salad. Vibrant oranges, crispy radishes, and a hint of mint create a light and fresh salad that perfectly complements the hearty bowl of spicy, beefy chili.
Looking to be more adventurous in the new year? Try experimenting with leeks.
Leeks are commonly overlooked at the grocery store. Their similar appearance to green onions often confuses shoppers. Leeks are a part of the onion family but possess a different flavor. Onions are great for sautéing, while leeks don’t typically cook as well.
Their delicate flavor and skin are best used with light mains, such as mahi-mahi and salmon. Cooking the sweet, subtle flavor of leeks with light fish allows both flavors to be showcased, without either being overpowered.
To get the best introduction to leeks, try them in the Blackened Mahi Mahi with Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Melted Leeks by Ben Vaughn or the Harlem Renaissance Salmon with Simple Autumn Spinach by Caroline Randall Williams.
Because of their pungent flavor, pomegranates are one of the most versatile fruits to cook with. Their seeds make for great additions to salads, desserts, drinks, and even hearty mains.
One of our favorite ways to enjoy these juicy seeds is for breakfast. Accompanied by toasted granola, tart Greek yogurt, and fresh blueberries, these vibrant seeds create the perfect pop of flavor. Waking up isn’t so bad when you’re waking up to one of these delicious parfaits.
