With the exception of citrus, winter produce isn’t as exciting as juicy summer tomatoes or peaches. But that doesn’t mean dark winter days have to be filled with boring food. We’ve used kale, cabbage, turnips, and squash in familiar and comforting recipes with enough of a twist to make things interesting. We’ve even thrown in a blood orange margarita to help you make it through the cold months to spring. Need more inspiration?
