Autumn vegetables are in their prime during October, and there’s nothing better than seeing seasonal vegetables on a menu. Root vegetables like beetroot, butternut squash, and parsnips, as well as cauliflower and carrots are popular autumn veg, and ideal for making a range of healthy, hearty dishes both vegan and vegetarian too.
The best thing about autumn vegetables is that they can be used in a variety of ways, in sauces, purée, soups or as the main dish – usually roasted with lots of lovely spices. The key to getting the most flavour out of root vegetables isn’t just in the cooking but what you pair them with. Here, we’ve got punchy salsa verde, salty miso, and nutty pesto, which really makes these root veggies sing.
