Autumn in Texas arrives with a tremendous welcome.  It brings the long-awaited respite from a heat-scorched summer, and a season filled with excitement for what’s ahead.  Football, cool mornings, turning leaves, and for me—anticipating the bounty of fall vegetables that The Austin Artisan uses in our meal delivery services: okra, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, beets, patty pan squash, Brussels sprouts, and eggplant, to name a few.  

What’s On Your Fall Dinner Menu?

What fall produce do you like to indulge in? Have you experimented with turnips, squash or figs?  From butternut squash stew and pumpkin risotto to honey roasted carrots, fall vegetables are versatile and bursting with comforting flavors. When planning your fall dinners, incorporate in-season produce. It is fresher, tastier and more nutritious than food consumed out of season.

The Austin Artisan loves to indulge in fall vegetables whether it involves a quick roast in the oven or sautéing with spices and olive oil. We are dedicated to making your meals as fresh as possible—which means emphasizing local foods and supporting nearby farmers and distributors. That’s why our menus constantly change to include fresh, seasonal ingredients originating 150 miles or closer to Austin, Texas. Preparing our meals with fall produce means you can enjoy a greater variety of foods (and maybe introduce some new favorites to your palate!)
