Vegan Dishes To Make This Autumn

Hello Autumn, hello comfort food. My favorite season is here. In order to make this season a little bit more sustainable, let’s use as much as possible fresh ingredients that come from the region. September, October, and November is the best season to eat pumpkin, squash, cabbage, sweet potatoes, carrots, and Brussel sprouts. Although tomatoes and cucumbers can still be grown in Dutch greenhouses in an energy-efficient manner, most greenhouse products are more polluting for the environment than vegetables and fruits that grow in the open air. The best and cheapest is to eat products that are grown on Dutch soil. Here are some easy recipes you can make this season:

Pumpkin soup with ginger

Eating pumpkin is very healthy. Pumpkin is rich in fiber, potassium, and vitamin C. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
