Turmeric Sweet Potato Hummus Platter
September is such a special month for all that it promises:
Extended golden hours, crisp Autumn air, cozy slow evenings with friends, and an abundance of freshly harvested organic produce. This month, we’re sharing a collection of yummy recipes from our community, and the best part is that they all pair perfectly with the sip of the season: Avaline Red. What we love most about these dishes is their commitment to wholesome, seasonal ingredients-- each recipe is organic (just like the grapes that go into your glass of Red).
Clean, delicious meals to go with your clean, delicious wine-- cheers to that!
