It’s that time of year again: winter. When thinking about winter, crops might not be the first things that come to mind, especially because many plants go dormant during this time. With that said, there are still plenty of vegetables you can get during winter that people will love. We have already discussed some of these veggies in the past, but there are still more vegetables you should consider offering to your consumers. Here are additional winter vegetables your customers will love.
Leeks are wonderful winter vegetables, and while people can enjoy them on their own, they are often used for all sorts of recipes. If you’re the owner of a restaurant, as an example, you could mix them in with potato soup or a chicken pie. If you want hardier leeks, you should go with ones that have purple leaves.
Cabbage is a timeless classic. It’s another of the highly flexible winter vegetables, in that it could be used either in various dishes or eaten by itself. Customers will find it appetizing just by looking at it, given its vivid green color, as well as the satisfying crinkle the leaves give off. You can even prepare it in many manners. You could boil it, steam it, or slice it, and put in everything from salads to casseroles to wraps.
Spinach is a superfood because of the many health benefits it offers to people. This makes spinach among the better winter vegetables to offer if your consumers are looking for the healthiest foods to eat.
With the ability to lower blood sugar, improve bone health, help your eyes, and make your immune system stronger, among other health benefits, it’s no surprise why spinach has such a good reputation.
Spinach also has a very subtle taste, meaning you can seamlessly blend it into various dishes without you even tasting it, which in turn makes it easy to get those nutrients into your body.
Cauliflower is another of the highly nutritious winter vegetables you could offer to consumers. Just like we discussed with cabbage, cauliflower can be prepared in different ways, such as steaming it or boiling it, or you could eat it raw.
It comes in different colors as well, including purple, orange, and green, with white being the most common, but it’s great no matter which color you pick.
You can get various health benefits from cauliflower, too, such as improving your immune system and potentially helping to protect people against types of cancer.
