One of the benefits of the cold winter months is something we might take for granted: an abundance of fresh vegetable favorites. Think leafy green offerings like collard and turnip greens; root vegetables like onions, potatoes and sweet potatoes; and cruciferous ones like Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage. Not only do they taste delicious, but they are especially valuable, nutritionally speaking.

According to the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, many of our top winter vegetables are excellent sources of vitamin A, ascorbic acid and iron. Collards, for example, have more vitamin A than snap beans, sweet corn or green peppers. Try out some of our reader-submitted recipes and include them in your winter menus. Your taste buds and your well-being will thank you.
