Dr Oz: Rachael Ray Fall Favorites
After discussing a recent family health crisis with Dr Oz, Rachael Ray stuck around to talk about cooking during her favorite season: fall. She explained that fall is great for cooking because the staples are both easy and affordable, not to mention nutritious! She mentioned dried beans, grains, dried mushrooms, and canned seafood as ingredients she cooks with the most during fall to make great stews and other dishes.
Dr Oz: More Vitamin D For Mushrooms & Cooking In Fall
She loves dried mushrooms because they’re “such a bang for your buck.” Buy whole mushrooms, not pre-sliced, and soak in warm water before cooking for a great, nutritious ingredient! Dr Oz added that you can also sit your mushrooms on the windowsill to add more vitamin D to them! She also loves cauliflower and other cruciferous vegetables that are cheap and loaded with nutrition. She cooks with sugar pumpkins and said spaghetti squash is a great pasta substitute for those who are gluten-free or just want to eat healthier.
Rachael Ray’s favorite dish to serve in the fall is Ribollita, which is a simple one-pot recipe you can make at home! Continue to the next page for that tasty recipe.
