Veggie of the Month: Exotic Vegetables

February’s veggie is…..Exotic Vegetables!

How about? Calabaza Squash, Chayote Squash, and Bitter Melon (also a member of the squash family).  These exotic vegetables are becoming more and more popular and readily available at local supermarkets.  Members of the squash family are generally a great source for vitamins C and B1, and are high in folic acid, fiber, and potassium.

Add some exotic vegetables to your table this month.  It’s a great way for the whole family to try something new and add some variety to your typical weeknight dinner.  For more on the vegetable of the month visit: http://www.fruitsandveggiesmatter.gov/month/.  From there you can find out nutrition information and new recipes.
