STRUGGLING WITH YOUR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION TO EAT MORE VEGGIES? ENJOY THESE HARDY WINTER VEGETABLES AND RECIPES FROM FAIRMONT KITCHENS IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST - OR INDULGE IN A STAY & DINE PACKAGE

Eating local has many benefits - it's more sustainable and provides fresher, tastier products than produce that travels thousands of miles.  For many, that translates into using root vegetables for winter menus and coming up with creative dishes.  Here are some favourites from chefs at Fairmont Hotels in the Pacific Northwest that will spice up winter - and the dinner table.

One of the most requested recipes from diners at the Fairmont Waterfront in Vancouver, this Butternut Squash Hazelnut Salad recipe is easy-peasy to make.   Roasting the squash takes the most time and the recipe can be easily doubled for a larger crowd or leftovers.   A Vitamin A superstar, and rich in magnesium, potassium and Vitamin C, squash is an economical way to enrich a diet.  Colourful and oh-so good, this is sure to become a family favourite. 

There's more to beets that borscht!  The Baby Beet Salad with Quinoa Granola and Ricotta Cheese recipe from Fairmont Hotel Vancouver will take a bit of time but straining the cheese can be done overnight and the effort is well worth it.  Low in calories, beets are often overlooked on the menu but offer a lot; they are high in folates, manganese and dietary fiber.  

Winter days call out for a comfort soup and this smoky Charred Carrot Bisque from the Fairmont Empress in Victoria is a perfect way to take the chill off. Sweet and tasty, carrots are one of the most loved and versatile vegetables and pack a punch when it comes to Vitamin A.

The Fairmont Olympic in Seattle has an elegant and colourful entrée - Perfectly Peppered Crab dish  that features red kuri squash, and can be served in the hollowed out vegetable.  Part of the hubbard squash family, the kuri is an orange tear-drop shape that has a chestnut flavor when cooked, and is a good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, potassium and iron.

Guests looking at a quick winter staycation can book a Stay & Dine Package that includes overnight accommodation, a $50 dining credit and, at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and Fairmont Waterfront, includes valet parking. Other participating hotels include Fairmont Empress in Victoria, Fairmont Olympic in Seattle, and in Vancouver - Fairmont Pacific Rim and Fairmont Vancouver Airport.  Valid through the end of March, reservations can be made by calling toll free to 1-800-257-7544 or book online.
