December has arrived quicker than ever! I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. This year, I have much to be thankful for, including your patience as I ramp back up on recipe development. Each post is a full production starting with recipe brainstorming and research, grocery shopping, testing (lots of testing), photography, photo editing and finally, writing!
Did you know that some recipes are in the works for over a year, sometimes two? It’s true. I’m learning how to work through this process with an adorable and busy baby girl nearby. She’s really more of a toddler these days, which is hard to believe.
More recipes will be coming your way soon, including a few yet-to-be-seen recipes saved from maternity leave. I’ve also been working on some brand new recipes that my trusty assistant, Megan, is testing from home. I’m looking forward to sharing those with you in the New Year.
Below, you’ll find a collection of healthy recipes to carry us through December and the holiday season. Cooking with fresh, seasonal produce is generally more delicious and also more affordable. One last thing—if you’re shopping for a gift for a loved one or coworker or host, I hear that my cookbook makes a great one. It’s on sale for about $15 on Amazon right now. Stay well, eat well, and happy holidays!
Simple Gluten-Free Apple Crisp
Gluten free and easily vegan (see recipe notes)
“Amazing recipe (as always!!). I followed exactly, including the 2 tbsp of water and 2 whisky (Canada) as per recommendations. I used Courtland apples and also added the Greek yogurt to the topping which I have never done in a crumble and it was amazing. Honestly best crumble hands down (GF or otherwise!)” – Giselle
Colorful Beet Salad with Carrot, Quinoa & Spinach
Gluten free and vegan
“This could be THE best salad I have ever made. I have a vegan friend who I am always trying to find interesting recipes for and she also loved it. I made it exactly as per your recipe apart from adding a mixture of toasted almond flakes and pumpkins seeds.” – Heather
Vegan Mac and Cheese
Easily gluten free, and vegan
“My super picky daughter even had seconds! I thought this was very good, and definitely the best “cheese” I’ve had. I usually steer clear of nutritional yeast based cheese sauce, but I pretty much love everything I’ve made from your blog, so I gave it a try. Served with your recipe of Apple Kohlrabi salad, and was a lovely meal!” – Sarah

Pomegranate & Pear Green Salad with Ginger Dressing
Gluten-free and easily vegan
“This was the best looking salad I’ve ever made, and the taste lived up to the appearance.

This was literally the centerpiece of my Christmas dinner table, and everyone loved it!” – Josh
Roasted Breakfast Potatoes
Gluten-free and vegan
“I’ve made these at least a half a dozen times! My husband, the potato enthusiast, loves them. Super easy and cooks up nice and crispy while I make our eggs. No more staring at the potatoes in the skillet and praying they don’t stick. Thanks, Kate!” – Heather

Kate, I’m always so happy to see the “what to cook” posts for the month. It really helps when I’m trying to cook items that are in season and reasonably priced. I love all your recipes, and you’ve made it so easy for me to transition to a full-time vegetarian and still keep a omnivorous boyfriend happy. I’m going to be moving in the next week into my first owned house as well and I know the pain of moving and cleaning everything. We just need to be mindful of the moments that we do have time to spend with our friends and family over the holiday season.
Happy early birthday (we’re birthday twins!!) and I cannot WAIT for your cookbook!!
Hooray for being birthday twins! And congrats on your new house, Lauren! It’s a relief to hear from someone who can really relate. I’m glad to know that you and your boyfriend have been enjoying my recipes. Can’t wait for you to see the book! :)
These recipes have made me hungry! I love the look of those squash tacos, yumyum!
Thanks, Rachael! Those tacos taste as good as they look, if I can say so myself. :)
Your birthday is in 24 days, is it? Are you a Christmas Eve baby like I am? Thanks for all the great December recipes. I am learning to balance my type 2 diabetes with great vegetable laden meals and your recipes help a lot! Dhyan in Boulder
Almost, I’m a Christmas baby! Happy early birthday. I’m so glad you’re enjoying my recipes. I have a tendency toward hypoglycemia so that’s why they’re all full of veggies and whole grains!
I have a request! I am sitting here looking out the window at the snow falling and raiding the soup section of your blog & thinking that you should do one of these “what to make” guides for your favorite winter soups!
That’s a great idea, thanks Sarah! I published one a couple of years ago (here), but it needs updating. Here are all of my soup recipes in the meantime. Stay warm!
You are killing it as always! Thanks for providing these round ups they always give me great ideas before the Saturday farmers market. Can’t wait for your cookbook!
Thank you so much, Karlie! I can’t wait for you to see the book!
Your recipes are a staple for me and lured me into the world of food blogging! You’re awesome – and Cookie too of course!
Thank you so much, Corrie!
I feel you Kate! The holidays get me every year, in the best and worst ways. Can’t wait for your cookbook!!
Thank you, Lauren!! I’m glad you know what I mean. Happy holidays!
Hmm I have made two recipes from this list but so many are appealing! I don’t know how I have missed seeing the Butternut Squash tacos–are they similar to your popular and yummy Sweet Potato Black Bean tacos? I often am stumped for what to do with a Butternut but tacos are always a good idea ;)
I also would like to mention that I think there might be a mistake on your first item on this list. An apple tart and oatmeal are both easily breakfast dishes for me but I think the text is meant to announce your Gluten Free Apple Tart instead of the steel cut oatmeal :)
Oops! Thank you for pointing out that error, Melanie. I was working from last month’s list and I guess I forgot to update the name. Will fix now. Yes, the butternut squash tacos are somewhat similar to the sweet potato ones. I love the crunchy cabbage.
Oh, I just finished my lunch and now I am ready to cook again after seeing all these recipes! I love ‘What’s in Season Recipes’!
Sara @ Last Night's Feast
I love these posts, Kate. They are so helpful!
Happy early birthday! I just turned 30 this past year and am single as ever as well haha! Let’s embrace it! Looking forward to your new cookbook :)
Jamie | A Sassy Spoon
My birthday is 27 days away so I feel ya. Also, doesn’t it suck having a birthday during the craziest month of the year?!? Ahhh. Gotta make the best of it though. Happy early birthday! :)
You sound like you need a hug so here you go x
Kate, this month also brings about a lot of conflicting emotions for me, too. It’s hard to be merry and sanguine when you are busy and tired. However, your beautiful recipes really bring a lot of pleasure to my life and have transformed my diet for the better. They are something I look forward to making every week, especially now, when I am so busy otherwise. Thank you and I hope you find some restorative moments this month.
Christine @ Yum and in Love
Thanks for rounding up December produce. I need to make more veggies in the winter- I veer towards soups, chilis, bread and cookies!
Kate, I love your recipes and photos and also your writing! I love the voice you have on your blog.
Hope you find some moments to relax in the upcoming weeks :)
I absolutely love all of these vegetables–beets, Brussel sprouts, broccoli, carrots, arugula, spinach, kale, winter squash and SWEET POTATOES, of course!
I am learning to balance my type 2 diabetes with great vegetable laden meals and your recipes help a lot!
That Time I Made Nothing but Cookie + Kate Recipes: hmm, my family also lives on your recipes. Every single day. We all love the food, and I, the cook, love how manageable to prep work is and how budget-doable the dishes are. As a highlight each weekend, I choose one of your recipes I haven’t tried before. So yummy!
You are so sweet, Marta! Thank you :)
The butternut squash tacos were actually the first meal I cooked in my first owned house a few weeks ago! Of course, with a margarita from your cookbook. Thanks for the fabulous recipes!
A great combo, Barbara! Sounds like something I will need to add to my future menu :)
I’ve ordered four of your cookbooks so far. One for me (of course) and three for my sister, son, and running partner. It’s simply not fair to keep your awesome recipes to myself. You are my culinary hero. Thanks for being you.
I love hearing that! Thank you, Jeanne for your continued support and your sweet comments. :)
Cassie Autumn Tran
I have been eating Brussels sprouts this December NON-STOP! They are absolutely amazing when roasted! You can’t go wrong with sweet potatoes, winter squash, pomegranates, kale, broccoli, and other greens as well!
I agree, Cassie! Thank you.
Thank you for all the wonderful ideas! I love all the beautiful seasonal produce you’ve included!
You are welcome! I am happy to hear you found it helpful.
Victoria @ SalmonRecipes
Pretty obsessed with this dish. I’ve made it so many days now that my spouse has ever requested me, how can you be sick of that? ….it’s delicious, balanced and straightforward. I typically stick in certain broccoli and top off it with enoki and half an times I”ve left itI’ve used trout. No Broad City though, I’m binge Seeing Downton Abbey in the moment.
I love that! Thanks for sharing, Victoria.
These look amazing. We are staying tonight so maybe I’ll make something from this post! We were in NOLA last winter and while everything was amazing, we had the best experiences at Muriel’s in the Square and Trinity. And check out Frenchman’s street for great music!
Thanks! I will add it to the list.
Ditto on the above posts! Love having a handful of delicious, in-season recipes that I know I can have as “go-to’s” for the month. Xx
Thank you, Claudia!
Hi Kate, New Orleans at Christmas should be a fun place. The food is always incredible, and the parties are around the clock.
Make sure you enjoy some charbroiled oysters at Drago’s Hilton.
New Orleans had 4 James Beard awards this year, hope you get to check some of them out:
– Outstanding Bar Program: Cure
– Best Chef South:Nina Compton, Compère Lapin
-Dong Phuong Bakery, New Orleans, Owners: Linh Tran Garza
-Lally Brennan and Ti Adelaide Martin Co-proprietors, Commander’s Palace
I will have to add this to my list! Thanks, Anna!
I went to New Orleans with my dad a few years ago. While we were there, I had one of the best restaurant meals I’ve ever had at The Court of Two Sisters. We went for dinner and sat on the outdoor patio, where there were greenery and fairy lights strung above our heads. Great ambiance and amazing food!
Thanks for the recommendation, Katie!
I’m a Christmas baby, too! I’m glad you’re getting to spend your birthday somewhere fun! Thank you for all the great recipes; you’re my go-to source for recipes, especially for dinner and healthier baked goods!
You’re welcome, birthday buddy! I’m glad you love the recipes. :)
Hi Kate! I’ve loved your blog for years now (and am a proud owner of Love Real Food). If you have time for a day trip out of the city and are into a historical/educational field trip, I highly recommend the Whitney plantation – it is the only preserved plantation in Louisiana that focuses on the perspective of enslaved Africans, and is a notable exception to the prevailing narrative at other plantation sites across the South. And perhaps already on your list – I think the carousel bar in the Hotel Montleone would be right up your ally :)
Thanks for the support and the recommendations!
NOLA for Christmas and a Birthday! How fun. Yes make reservations now! Some of my fave eateries: Compere Lapin (good bar also), Coquette, Saba, Shaya and Felix counter for oysters (do you eat oysters?). Fun casual…Maison on Frenchman for music, Bacchanal for wine and outside music, Tonique for quick cocktail, Elizabeth’s for breakfast, the Ace roof for an afternoon cocktail weather permitting or evening dancing downstairs (it’s a scene but it’s fun). Ride the streetcar to the Garden District. Tour the cemetery (pay a guide if available in front). Take a self-guided tour of the districts houses then hit the Hot Tin for a sunset cocktail. Tour the WW!! Museum (it’s amazing) or wander Julia Street to look at galleries. Museum of Art is nice. Of course you can always just wander the Quarter and take in the tourist sites. It’s all fun!!!!
Good to know! Thank you for all your recommendations, Alli!
Brittany Audra @ Audra's Appetite
The veggie enchiladas look and sound delicious!
They are delicious! :)
Jealous! I love New Orleans. Here’s my recs:
If you want to do Commander’s Palace, go for lunch. 25 cent martinis (be careful)! Then walk around the Garden District.
Cochon Butcher is also a great place for lunch, but not sure what vegetarian options they have.
If you have a car, go to Dong Phuong’s in New Orleans East.
Brunch at Elizabeth’s.
Ride the streetcar from Uptown to the French Quarter. The homes on St. Charles Ave are impressive.
Cafe Au Lait and beignets – Cafe du Monde is the most famous. Don’t wear black. Trust me.
Have your palm read in Jackson Square. Stroll around the French Quarter and just admire the architecture. Bourbon Street is worth seeing, but there is so much more to enjoy there.
Walk lots so you can eat more. Have so much fun.
Thank you so much for this detailed list, Laurie! I’m really excited. I love all the recommendations I’m getting.
Elizabeth Gray Topp
Try Seed while you’re in NOLA. It is a vegan restaurant, and it is fabulous!
Try “Seeds” in NOLA. It’s vegan, and it’s fantastic!
Thank you! I will do some research on it!
Just want to say that I’ve always loved your “What to cook this [month]” posts (and your blog in general — and your book!), because I always try to eat seasonally, but we FINALLY signed up for a CSA and just got our first order and now I am *living* for this post and this series, with our box having most of the produce you’re listing here; the ability to search recipes by produce is so amazing, and is going to be even more clutch with each CSA box we get!
I’m really happy to hear that! That’s fun that you can use this with your monthly CSA order. Thanks for sharing, Ashley!
Thanks for all your awesome recipes which I have been loving and using for years! One thing I appreciate about your recipes is that they use common ingredients that are in-season and nutrient packed. Makes it very convenient to eat healthy and delicious food all the time! If you are able, I would love to see more Instant Pot recipes or any of your takes on Indian-style food.
When in New Orleans, give Sweet Soulfood a try (vegan, amazing locally owned spot on Broad Street)! Also you’ll love Thousand Figs and Green Goddess. Have fun and enjoy!
Thanks guys can’t wait to try it!
This is just a general praise for your recipes!
We used a few recipes from your cookbook for Thanksgiving and…wow. Each one was a hit! Carrot, wild rice, and arugula salad; almond cherry crisp; even a cocktail (or two). I am allergic to soy and a family member is gluten free, but your book makes it so easy to adapt recipes as necessary. This is very much appreciated and what makes me reach for Love Real Food again and again. (The fact that the recipes are delicious and nutrient rich goes without saying!)
Also, I have been completely converted to your “pasta” method for cooking rice. Brilliant! I can’t remember if that’s in the book or here on the site, but I think it’s a sign of full adoption that I can’t remember the exact location!
Thank you so much for your approach to healthy, appealing food and your sharing of new techniques!
Thank you for commenting, Darcie!
My favorite cookbook is yours, naturally. Please, please, please come out with another???
You’re so sweet! Thank you :) I don’t have any plans yet, sorry!
I’m so happy to hear about Cookie!! <3 <3
Thank you so much, Lori!!
Hello, I always read your posts but do not see you on Instagram and just learned the GOOD news re Cookie and her diagnosis. My heart is with you and prayers for full remission!!
Thank you so much, Susan. She is doing great. Most days, you would never guess that she’s in treatment!
About 3 weeks ago I was pretty disgruntled that I hadn’t seen any photos of Cookie on your recipes lately, so I scrolled through your IG until I found the post about her diagnosis. So distressing. She is just adorable, and clearly the light of your life! Thrilled to hear about her remission!! Wishing her the best.
I know, I need to share more Cookie pics! She’s doing very well and I’m so thankful!
Adorable pictures of Cookie! So happy to hear that she’s in full remission!! Thanks for the great recipes!
Thank you, Andrea! Happy holidays. :)
So glad that Cookie is doing well… her pictures are precious!
Thank you for all the recipes. I haven’t had time to make it yet, but that pear and pom salad is so beautiful, I can’t wait to try the recipe.
Thank you, Kathryn! That salad is one of my all-time favorites.
So thankful that Cookie is DONE with Cancer!!!! Take care of each other and keep bloggin!
Thank you, Ann!
Hi Cookie & Kate !
I recently bought your cookbook and LOVE the Spaghetti with Roasted Cauliflower & Kale recipe. Oh my goodness. Yummy !! I roast a can of rinsed/drained Garbonzos bathed in EVOO and cayenne pepper for a little extra protein. One of my many faves of yours.
Glad to read Cookie is doing well !
Wonderful, Lorrie! I’m glad you are loving my cookbook.
Wonderful news about sweet and beautiful Cookie! I am a dog lover too.
Thank you, Dana! :)
I love your recipes,, the food a great and it looks beautiful you are the best
Carrie @ Season It Already!
COOKIE! So good to hear.
Thank you, Carrie!
Kate – don’t know where to start — all these recipes look so good and are good for you which we need especially this time of year and this year in general! Love the pix of Cookie.
Happy and safe holidays!
Thank you, Jill! You as well.
Rock on Cookie! Xxxooo
Thank you, Tracy!
I made the creamy Thai sweet potato and carrot soup and the pasta e fagioli yesterday to meal prep for the week, and we ended up having a “soup sampler” dinner and ate a little bit of both! I told my fiancé that I was testing out a new (to me!) food blog by making those recipes, and after that delicious dinner we declared ourselves Cookie and Kate fans! Looking forward to exploring more wonderful recipes here! :)
I am very pleased with your book Love Real Food. I have only had it a short time but enjoying reading it and trying some of the recepies. I find it easy to follow and interesting to read. Photos are a great addition and helpful. Thank you Kate for a really good cookery book.
Thank you so much for purchasing my book and letting me know how much you enjoy it! I appreciate your support, Susan.
Your recipes have transformed my cooking! I am continually delighted with each new recipe I try out. I love the way you use herbs and spices in ways I’ve never tried before with delicious ( and healthy) results.
Thank you for your wonderful book and really looking forward to the next one!
Belated response as I’m catching up with email, but OMG! Remission! Absolutely fantastic news. Woohoo!
I’m so happy to hear Grace and Cookie are doing well! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thank you for always providing us with incredibly delicious and healthy meal ideas! Your cookbook is the most dogeared and stained one in the kitchen! I get very excited to see the monthly “what to cook” e-mails arrive!
Thank you so much, Dawn! Really happy to hear that you’re enjoying all the recipes I’ve created over the years, especially while I’m unable to spend much time in the kitchen. Have a wonderful day!
My baby boy was 6 lbs when he was born too! He’ll be 7 months old soon and he’s 23 lbs now! The newborn phase was hard for me – I definitely didn’t love every moment. But those days are precious even still, and the hardest days are already fading in my mind. I’m loving the baby stage now for sure! Lots of fruits and veggies and cute baby giggles! You’re doing great, mama Kate. Sending lots of love to your beautiful family! ❤️
Wow! It’s truly mind-boggling how fast they grow. She’s just three months now and filling out the 3-6 months size way too fast. Thank you for reminding me of all the goodness to come! The smiles are filling me up and I bet the giggles are even better. :) Happy holidays to you and your family!
I love seeing your “what to cook” posts too. And I’m SO happy that your entire family is thriving. We had your Butternut Squash soup two days ago and it is YUMMY. I will be making that often.
Thank you so much, Carolyn. It’s such a sweet time. Wish I could have that soup for lunch!! So glad you enjoyed it.
Hi Kate, so glad to hear that Cookie is doing well. Such a sweetheart!
Thank you, Gail!
Kate! I missed the original post about Grace in October…congratulations!!! She’s beeeaauuutiful!!!!! She has no idea how lucky she is having such a great chef for a mom! Also sending love and healthy thoughts Cookie’s way. Xoxoxo
Thank you so much, Andrea! Grace is snoozing on me as I type. Really looking forward to introducing her to all our favorite foods! Happy holidays to you. :)
I was wondering recently how Cookie is doing, I am glad she is fighting and defying the odds as you say! Give her a treat from me! :)
Thank you, Franziska! Will do!
Wow! Oh my goodness the recipes are fantastic! Lol, I have tried all the December recipes! I love this website! Where have you been all my life! You are going to make me a star in my own kitchen! Thank you! My family thanks you!
You’re welcome, Ace! I’m glad you enjoyed the list. Be sure to comment on what you like!
Congratulations- just seeing the baby news now and I’m sure that your life is unbelievably busy (and hopefully fun!)! Best of luck with Cookie (I’m sure that you are being incredibly thoughtful with your care) and hope that your winter is fun and bright!
Thank you, Meghan!
Good morning from Victoria, BC. I LOVE your recipes SO much. They are the favourites in our home. I heard about you from a 100 year old neighbour’s great grand-daughter-in-law who was visiting from Nelson, BC. She told me about your recipes and I love them. My husband and I been vegetarian for 3 or 4 years now. Your recipes are our very favourite go-to’s. I print them from them from your blogs but we need to get your cookbook too. I had to write because I just read your post about your baby girl, Grace, and you said, “Can you tell I’m crying” because you are overwhelmed with so much love. Well I am 66 with a 28 year old son who lives 30 mins away. Just spoke to him this morning before he started work. Adam is such a sweet man to all and wonderful son. When I read in your post, “Can you tell I’m crying”, I wept instantly because the love for my grown-up child is so deep and is so profound that tears just flow. You know the saying “go with the flow”…it takes on a whole new meaning when you’re a mom! Thanks for all the joy of cooking and eating sumptuous healthy meals that you have given us :) Merry Christmas to you and your family, your new baby, Grace and to Cookie! Wishing you and your family good health, much happiness and many years of blogging :)
What a lovely comment to read on a Monday! Thank you, Kerry. I appreciate your comment.
Regarding Cookie’s lymphoma, consider giving her a dose of fenbendazole (Safeguard or Panacur) periodically. Fenbendazole is used as a dewormer, but it also has been found to help with cancer, although it hasn’t been researched thoroughly. Best wishes.
Happy Holidays Kate! Longtime reader and huge fan of your site and recipes. No need to apologize to the critics here of late on lack of new content. You have always been so honest about your process, made amazing videos and been a positive proponent for all things healthy and delicious. I will be making your Lentil Soup this weekend and wishing you health from California. Cheers!
Thanks so much for your kind words! That lentil soup is still my favorite. :) Happy holidays from Kansas City!
Oh, the squash tacos! My son and I have made these several times already. And he, who is wary of trying to cook, used the leftovers to invite friends over when I was out of town. Everyone loves the squash tacos! We ran out of cilantro, but it was OK and he added some cortija cheese to the mix.
Funny enough, my cooking went up a notch during the Covid shutdown…and eventually I realized most of the recipes I loved were yours! So now I just follow you around seeking cooking wisdom. And you never fail me. :D
