1. Beet & Goat Cheese Salad

This stunning winter salad gets its sweet, earthy flavour from roasted beets and balsamic vinegar. Creamy goat cheese and peppery arugula add color and balance, while toasted walnuts adds crunch.

2. Roasted Carrots With Calimyrna Fig Dressing

Whole roasted carrots make quite a statement on the dinner table when they’re topped with a port wine-and-fig dressing. In this recipe, we like dried calimyrna figs because they are a tad less sweet then mission figs and taste slightly nutty as well.

3. Slow-Cooked Sweet & Sour Cabbage

The combination of cloves, cabbage and cider vinegar gives this slow-cooker cabbage recipe its sweet-and-sour flavor. Don’t skip the apples-the hit of natural sweetness is worth the time it takes to core and chop them.

4. Whipped Potato With Sage Brown Butter

Russets are the creamiest, best potatoes for mashed potatoes. A drizzle of browned butter on top adds a nutty flavor that mingles nicely with tangy yogurt and fragrant sage.

5. Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Goat Cheese & Pomegranate

This gorgeous warm salad with nutty roasted Brussels sprouts, sweet-tart pomegranate seeds, and creamy goat cheese is perfect for any winter meal from a weeknight dinner to Christmas dinner or any other holiday celebration. The recipe is easily doubled if you are entertaining a crowd: just be sure to spread the sprouts out so they roast instead of steaming.
