{Nourish} Holiday Side Dish Round-Up

Roasted Delicata Squash @KatiecavutoRdThe side dishes are my favorite part of  our Thanksgiving feast. Root vegetables and winter squash are so cozy and satisfying. Orange zest as well as earthy, savory herbs and spices have a tendency to slay me. I am honestly getting giddy just thinking about our holiday spread. Thanksgiving may be  my favorite meal of the year.  While I love tradition, I also enjoy introducing new flavors, grains and vegetables to our holidays so keep it interesting. So much so that I am cooking up a Moroccan Spiced Turkey this year which has me daydreaming of the aromatic scents that will fill my kitchen this time next week. If you’re not ready to give up those traditional sides, it could be fun to add something new to your spread and this post has all of the inspiration you need. Fire crackling, candles lit, Thanksgiving is about to kick off the cozy vibes that embody the cooler months of winter. Yes! Continue reading “{Nourish} Holiday Side Dish Round-Up”

{Nourish} Cool Weather Cobbler

Cool Weather Cobbler with Cranberries and Ginger @KatieCavutoRDAs far as I am concerned, every season deserves a cobbler or crumble of sorts. While I tend not to have much of a sweet tooth (pass the potato chips, please), I love fruit and roasted fruit may just top the list of my favorite desserts–they simply feel more savory to me. This cool weather cobbler is packed with fall flavors including savory spices like ginger and cinnamon. Apple and pears cozy up together with antioxidant rich, immune boosting cherries and cranberries for a colorful, sweet and tart, treat that is really satisfying. The crumble is bolstered by the richness of almonds and pumpkin seeds which add texture, satiating healthy fats and an added boost of nutrient density. A touch of maple syrup is all you need to accent this naturally sweet dessert that is honestly so good for you I would eat it for breakfast too! Bonus, you can swap the fruit depending on the season. Peaches, rhubarb, berries–they would all work beautifully in this recipe! Continue reading “{Nourish} Cool Weather Cobbler”
