October Produce: What’s In Season

Posted on by Jennie

October Produce | Garlic, My Soul | Megan Roy Designs

Finally, October is here, and in LA today it’s a temperature I can pretend is “fall.” (It’s 78 here, folks, and I am wearing shorts and a t-shirt and am almost chilly and I will take it.)

Fall is hands-down my fave time of year for produce. I love a berry, don’t get me wrong, but there’s nothing better than pumpkin, pomegranate, and all the hearty greens combined with some spaghetti squash.

Apples * Acorn Squash * Brussels Sprouts
Kale * Mushrooms * Pomegranates
Pumpkins * Spaghetti Squash * Tomatoes

Pesto Spaghetti Squash | Garlic, My Soul

This Pesto Spaghetti Squash is one of our go-tos in the season. I love adding beets, chicken, a hearty green, and some sundried tomatoes. The basics are a spaghetti squash and pesto. (I recommend maybe using goat cheese, too, if you want to go crazy!)

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pasta | Garlic, My Soul

I had forgotten we made this until I was looking for pumpkiny recipes for this post, and I’m glad I found this again! Pumpkin Goat Cheese Gluten Free Pasta is an awesome way to get in pumpkin that’s not a muffin or something sweet. I really love using pumpkin in savory dishes, and having a can or two in the cupboard means I always have it available for recipes like this one.

Fontina & Jam Grilled Cheese | Garlic, My Soul

I also love putting apples into savory dishes. I love an apple crumble or tart as much as the next person, but I hate that baking always makes things just that much more unhealthy. (Although let’s be honest, this grilled cheese isn’t a salad either…oh well, it’s delish!) Fontina Apple Grilled Cheese with some soup are perfect and quick dinners.

Butternut Squash Bread Pudding | Garlic, My Soul

Butternut Squash. Kale. Bread Pudding. This one is also gluten free, and delicious, and easy, and makes great leftovers. I can’t get enough of winter squash, you guys. This is a good one for chilly weeknights and/or lunches for the week. You can use an acorn squash, too, if you want, whatever’s your fave winter squash.

So there you go – a guide to October, one of my fave months of all time. Enjoy this best of harvest seasons!
