Packed with nutrients, cranberries give fall dishes bursts of their distinctive tart flavor and are full of antioxidants. Harvested between September and December, that’s the time to take full advantage of them in fresh form. Here are a few fall favorites that really pack them in. For more information, go to our post on cranberries. Our vegan Cranberry-Carrot Cake with Maple-Cream Cheese Frosting is festive and luscious, but with a minimum of fat and a plethora of fresh fruit (and a vegetable!) in the batter, not the least bit guilt-inducing.
