Farm to Table Winter Meals

During the winter, it can be hard to eat healthy and locally. However, we have some great farm to table winter meal ideas for you at home!

At Catering by Seasons, we love cooking with locally sourced ingredients, and we won’t let a little bit of snow keep us from that! Our partners at Groundworks Farm provide fresh organically grown vegetables from their greenhouses, eggs from their pasture-raised hens, and grass-fed meats. Chef Kyle Vermeulen does a fantastic job pairing these farm to table flavors into unique winter dishes.

 

Take a look at some of our favorites:

Roasted Duck and Root Vegetables

This roasted duck with tri-color carrots and mashed sweet potatoes was a hit with the Catering by Seasons team. The duck is juicy and flavorful, providing important protein. The carrots and sweet potatoes are savory and filling, with lots of vitamins and other nutrients.

Make your own at home with locally grown vegetables and organic meats. You can substitute the duck for chicken or pork. If you are out of carrots or sweet potatoes, try roasted or mashed beets for a whole new flavor!

Pickled Beet Deviled Eggs

Sometimes it is hard to figure out what to do with all of the beets you get from CSAs or winter farm stores. These healthy root vegetables are hearty and easy to grow in the winter, making them a farmer favorite. But not everyone loves beets, especially kids. Pickled beets are a good solution, as they can be softer and more flavorful. Try this Spiced Pickled Beet recipe with cinnamon and cloves for a whole new taste!

To make these flavorful deviled eggs, pickle them whole with your beets. Once they are a beautiful bright purple, you can pull them out and make them as you would any other deviled eggs, adding flavors to compliment the beets.

These bright and colorful eggs will be a showstopper at your next house party!

 

Root Vegetable Pops - Catering by Seasons (1 of 1)

Roasted Root Vegetable Pops

Another unique appetizer from Chef Kyle, these beet, butternut squash, and turnip pops are a fun way to eat your vegetables. Served with a hummus or tahini dip, these interactive treats are a great way to use up your winter vegetables from the farm.

Cooking instruction for these vegetable pops can be a little tricky. First you have to peel the vegetables, but then you can use a cookie cutter (in any shape!) on the raw vegetables. Stars, circles, and dinosaur shapes make these treats fun and interesting for kids. Roast them in the oven until they are soft, then poke them with lollipop sticks.

Make sure to have a plan for the scraps, too. You can puree them into soups or smoothies, or roast them also for a winter root salad.

White Bean and Spinach Cassoulet

Chef Kyle’s vegan cassoulet with white beans, butternut squash, carrots, and spinach is a hit with vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. It is a flavorful and filling combination of local ingredients that is easy to make and perfect for the whole family.

At home, you can make this great recipe in a slow cooker with vegetable or meat stock. Add pieces of chicken or beef to make it your own!

Peppercorn Flank Steak and Vegetable Terrine

For the omnivorous palate, Chef Kyle recommends a winter meal featuring local meats and veggies. His peppercorn encrusted flank steak and gluten-free saffron risotto cakes are paired with a layered winter vegetable terrine to create a colorful plate that will brighten even the coldest winter night.

Try it on your own with locally sourced grass-fed beef and a vegetable terrine of your own. We recommend trying a potato and leek terrine.

Yum!

    I don’t think the title of your article matches the content lol. Just kidding, mainly because I had some doubts after reading the article.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Everything about working with Catering by Seasons, from the planning, communication, to the execution was phenomenal!

Catering By Seasons exceeded my expectation. I used them for a brunch at my house after my son’s bar mitzvah. The level of professionalism along with their responsiveness made me feel at ease right away.

I can’t say enough great things about our entire experience planning our daughter's Bat Mitzvah with Glynis Keith, Catering Manager, with Catering by Seasons.
