At Nourish and Feed, we source local and seasonal ingredients whenever possible. Our mission is to set a new standard in the food system, focusing on wholesome and nutritious ‘fast food’ for the wider community, with the produce and meat all sourced from local suppliers who share a similar vision of sustainable and ethical farming.
Loaded with comforting, seasonal flavours that will keep you warm through the chillier months, our healthy and wholesome winter menu is sure to keep you satisfied when you’re on the go.
To honour our new winter menu, we wanted to showcase some of the fresh, in season produce that features in our winter dishes:
Butternut Pumpkin – we source our Butternuts from local growers in Donnybrook. Pumpkins are a great source of fibre, potassium and Vitamin A. The nutritional content of pumpkin makes it beneficial for digestion, blood pressure and for healthy skin and hair – winning!
Butternuts are one of the best pumpkins to roast but they can also be boiled and mashed with a touch of butter, salt and pepper. Pumpkin soup is also delicious and one of our personal favourites!
Butternut pumpkin is the main ingredient in our delicious WA Pumpkin + Pickled Artichoke Salad, served with nuts, seeds, spinach, red onion and a creamy yogurt dressing.
Parsnips – Rich in dietary fibre and potassium, this root vegetable is the quintessential cold weather vegetable. When buying, look for parsnips that are very white, the whiter the flesh, the sweeter the parsnip. Parsnips are complex in flavour, remarkably versatile and easy to cook. Their earthiness works well in stews and soups but they also taste delicious when roasted with other root vegetables such as carrots and potatoes. Try them in our Winter Vegetables + WA Quinoa salad, served with fetta, mint, pepitas, dukkah, kale, and a WA honey & mustard dressing.
Kale – Kale has certainly take centre stage in the vegetable world and it’s not difficult to see why. This nutritional powerhouse is packed full of health benefits, including being low fat, low in calories, high in fibre and iron, and filled with powerful antioxidants. Kale is also high in calcium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and is a great anti-inflammatory food – one cup of kale is filled with 10% of the RDA of omega-3 fatty acids, which help, fight against arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disorders. Some of our favourite ways to enjoy kale are in soups and stews, blended into pesto and served on spelt pasta, and served in our Winter Vegetables + WA Quinoa salad.
Beetroot – One of our favourite superfoods, beetroots are highly nutritious and have been shown to improve athletic performance, lower blood pressure, and increase blood flow. Beetroots are also one of the richest sources of glutamine, an amino acid, essential to the health and maintenance of the intestinal tract. When buying, look for beetroots that still have their greens intact. The greens should be fresh-looking and the beetroot itself should be firm, smooth, and a vibrant red-purple. Try roasting or boiling and serving with your favourite salad. We pickle ours and serve in our new Grilled Halloumi with Sprouted Seeds + Grains salad.
Oranges – It’s easy to see why the humble orange is winter’s most popular fruit. Rich in Vitamin C and full of antioxidants, oranges give beautiful flavour to both sweet and savoury dishes. Not only do oranges boost the immune system and promote heart health, they also lower cholesterol and blood pressure, regulate blood sugar and help prevent various types of cancer. We love to stew our oranges and serve with our house-made bircher muesli.
