The marriage of vegan foods and seasonal produce is a natural one: plant-based foods follow annual cycles and both are healthy and environmentally sustainable. Ripe local produce has the most flavor and nutritional value, uses fewer resources to store and deliver, is more economical to buy, and often supports local farmers. Local Bounty reintroduces the world of seasonal produce: leafy greens in the spring, tomatoes, peppers, and summer squash during the summer and fall, and root vegetables and winter squash during the cooler months. The bounty of the garden is transformed into wonderful meals that will truly nourish and satisfy with a minimum of fuss to prepare. Real food, real taste.
