The locally sourced fruits and vegetables we're delivering this week are full of fall color, from the yellow-green of Romanesco to the fiery red of bell peppers. Try not to squint when opening your box this week, it's going to be radiating with the vibrant hues of autumn in the Northeast.

If you haven't had the pleasure of trying the Romanesco from The Kitchen Garden yet, you're in for a treat. The gorgeous flowers are a Brassica related to broccoli and cauliflower and have a mild, nutty flavor. Fun fact for the math lovers out there: The spirals on a head of Romanesco follow the Fibonacci Sequence

In other news, we've got stalked Brussels sprouts, just picked and brought to us by Atlas Farm. These little globes of deliciousness can be roasted right on the stalk for an easy but show-stopping side dish. Or, if you're in the mood to do a little trimming, we recommend this spicy recipe for Buffalo Brussels, the shareable dish perfect for watching the game.

Speaking of sprouts, this week from Massachusetts-based Jonathan's Sprouts we have pea shoots! A super source of zinc and magnesium, these versatile plants add a green crunch to salads, sandwiches and stir-fries. But one of the best ways to eat them is by making them the star of the dish in this Garlicky Pea Shoot Tangle. Nom nom nom.
