“What grows together goes together.” It’s an easy enough motto to pretty much guarantee a wonderful and complex flavor profile.
I know what you’re thinking…but peanut butter and chocolate don’t grow together? This may not work across the board and trust me; no one is denying the beauty of chocolate and peanut butter. However, this is generally a good rule of thumb when it comes to fruits and vegetables.
Seasonal and regional produce, generally pair very well together. Fall fruits and vegetables are no exception. This is the season of squashes, pumpkins, apples, and stone fruit. Whether you’re in the mood for a sweet or savory dish there are delicious ways of combining multiple items from this fall produce list.
Take this recipe for example. It combines butternut squash and apples and can actually be used as a sweet or savory item. I topped this “hash” with a sunny side up egg for a savory entrée, but you could just as easily spread this on toast and have a sweet squash toast breakfast.
This is extremely versatile, healthy, and flavorful. Sure to satisfy your sweet or savory tooth. Enjoy!
