A lot is always being said about eating your greens, but yellow fruits and vegetables do not have to stand back for their cool cousins. Packed with carotenoids and bioflavonoids, they are a great source of antioxidants and a offers an abundance of vitamin C.

According to which represent a class of water soluble plant pigments that function as antioxidants. Along with antioxidants, sunny-colored foods also have an abundance of vitamin C.

Yellow comes in a wide variety of shades, from light lemon to delightful daffodil to moody mustard. For today’s recipe, we picked a fiery yellow butternut and turned it into a creamy tart. It is delicious on its own with a glass of our Chenin Blanc (or even the Classic Chardonnay) and is a lovely sweet veggie to serve with roast chicken!
