Now that we've taken a tour of the produce section, color by color, we're so inspired to make meals that use all of these fresh, flavorful ingredients. But before we do, we want to take one more moment to admire all of the gorgeous edible colors.
Purple fruits and vegetable are like works of art, yet shockingly abundant in the produce aisle. For our exploration through the colors of the fruit and vegetable rainbow, we were able to track down a bright-purple head of cabbage, a box of blueberries, an elegant, long-necked Japanese eggplant, and a peak-season bunch of Spring onions. Looking for ways to enjoy these purple produce items? Then keep reading.
Crisp green produce just looks like it's good for you, doesn't it? Out of all of the colors of the rainbow, I tend to prefer green veggies the most. While there are countless fresh and tasty options, at this time of year, it's hard not to be drawn to avocados, artichokes, english peas, and lettuce. Find out what we like to do with these bright green ingredients when you keep reading.
We're moving on to the yellow produce part of our journey. When I think of yellow fruits and vegetables, I immediately taste lemons. But beyond lemons, crookneck squash happens to be one of my favorite vegetables to cook with. Golden delicious apples are often overlooked for fancier varieties, even though they boast a unique and refreshing flavor. And yes, you guessed it, we're looking at more bell peppers! For some colorful recipes using all of these yellow ingredients, keep reading.
Produce in vivid red hues might seem hard to come by, but interesting enough, in our colorful produce tour, orange produce was even harder to track down. As it turns out, the options are pretty straightforward — oranges, carrots, and golden bell peppers — but that doesn't make them any less full of flavor. Find out what to do with them when you keep reading.
In honor of Earth Day (next Monday, April 22), we want to take this week to appreciate all of the colorful, nutritious, flavorful produce that we get to enjoy. With that in mind, we scoured the shelves of our local Whole Foods Market for the most colorful ingredients, from bright red bell peppers to deep purple cabbage. We're going to be taking a look at all of the colors of the produce rainbow and chatting about our favorite ways to enjoy them. Keep checking all week long for lots of colorful culinary inspiration.
