Fall is great for many reasons; chilly weather, leaves falling, pumpkin picking, and awesome seasonal vegetables!  The following are five vegetables to try with your family and some recipes to go along with them.  These recipes are simple which allows kids to get involved.  Have them help shop for ingredients, measure spices, and mix ingredients.

Zucchini- choose zucchini that is bright green and firm. http://www.marthastewart.com/314231/roasted-zucchini-onion-and-peppers

Pumpkin- choose canned pumpkin puree, it usually has the best pumpkin taste.  But make sure that pumpkin is the only ingredient- no added sugar! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/aarti-sequeira/pumpkin-oatmeal-recipe/index.html

Leeks- choose firm leeks with white bottoms and bright green leaves. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/rachael-ray/blt-and-p-bacon-leek-tomato-and-potato-soup-recipe/index.html
