We asked our doctors their favorite recipes for these five foods that taste better in November.

Brussel Sprouts

Dr. Andrea DeNeen says roasting is the way to go when it goes to preparing brussel sprouts. “Brussel sprouts are a great source of vitamin C,” Dr. DeNeen says, “Roasting brussel sprouts adds that extra kick of flavor.” Add olive oil, salt and pepper to the brussel sprouts before roasting for 35 to 40 minutes.

Carrots

Dr. Satish Goel enjoys grated carrots with onions, parsley, cilantro, lemon juice and a little bit of olive oil. “This carrot salad puts the typical bag of carrots with ranch dressing snack to shame,” Dr. Goel, “Carrots have high levels of vitamin A.” Click here for the full recipe.

Cranberries

Dr. Yazan Khatib suggests substituting chocolate chip cookies in your holiday cakes for cranberries. “Just this small change can save you big on calories and fat,” Dr. Khatib says, “Cranberries are also a great source of fiber.”

Leeks

Dr. Imraan Ansaarie enjoys broccoli-leek soup. “You mostly hear about potato leek soup, but broccoli-leek soup is a unique twist,” Dr. Ansaarie says. Click here for a great recipe for broccoli-leek soup.

Onions

We know there’s about a million things you can do with onions from adding them to a salad, a soup or caramelizing them to add to just about any meal. We love this reduced-fat french onion dip recipe.
