What’s in Season: September Produce Guide. Here’s a list of what you should cook this September based on what produce is in season for fresh, delicious and healthy recipes!
Happy September friends & Happy Labor Day! I’m standing here, in the wind, arms wide opening, welcoming fall. Cue a Pumpkin Spice Latte in one hand and a whole pumpkin in the other. There’s still a lot of summer produce that’s still in season but I’m excited for what fall produce that’s just coming in. Can you say – all things pumpkin?
Curious as to what produce is in season in September?

I love how bright and beautiful cabbage is. I’ve used it raw for a crunch factor, and I’ve also sautéed it down in coconut milk.

I usually go through 4 eggplants every WEEK. Everything from mini veggie pizzas, amazing toppings for vegan pizzas, stuffed eggplants and baba ghanoush are constantly churning out of my kitchen. Eggplants are so easy to manipulate and are such delicious veggies. You can get SO much variety out of them and shouldn’t be intimidated by them.

My Favourite Greens Recipes:
I try to keep a bag of fresh greens in my fridge at all times for spur of the moment salads, pestos, and anything else. I always use fresh herbs and you will absolutely taste the difference from dried herbs. I’m thinking of growing my own herb garden next. My new favourite herb is definitely rosemary! I’ve been using it in EVERYTHING.

I’m just getting into peaches and plums (shocker!) but I’ve been putting them in and on everything lately. This Stone Fruit Salad is one you can’t miss.

HOW am I just getting into Radishes? Not only are they so undeniably pretty, their crunch and spice factor reminds me a lot of kohlrabi which I fell in love with two years ago. Be sure to try out all different varieties of radishes including easter egg radishes (pictured above), daikon radishes and any other kinds that you can find!

Squash is where it’s at. Definitely one of my favourite recipes ever above!

I would say tomatoes are my summer/fall staple, but they are definitely one of my LIFE staples. I put tomatoes in and on every. single. thing. Whether’s its using cherry tomatoes, tomato sauce or making my own marinara sauce, tomatoes are so great to use this month because they go with everything! If you aren’t a fan of tomatoes, try using it seasoned instead of raw. It may change your perspective!
