Eat Your Vegetables!

Hosted by Susan Feliciano
Group active since Thu, Jan 13, 2011

We all know how important it is to eat our vegetables. But how often do we make a delicious main dish, only to think: What can I serve with this? I often see references to "Serve with a lightly steamed vegetable..." but sometimes I'm out of ideas for a tasty vegetable to go with my meal. So use this group to share some of your tastiest vegetable recipes. New, old, tried and true - whatever! I look forward to seeing your good veggie suggestions. Please limit posts to recipes containing vegetables and fruits.

Curried spinach and beets recipe cuz they were so yummy

Sometimes I quickly put in a recipe cuz something turned out so good I don't want to forget it. This is the most recent of those. I took inspiration from traditional Indian recipes to make something easy. Curry those veggies!

Anyone have a good Ratatouille Recipe?

Several years ago, I made a great Ratatouille, first and only time, and took it to a family reunion, and it was raved over. Now I cannot find the recipe. It was a basic Ratatouille, if I remember right, but I added some cubed Tempeh to it so it would have protein and be a main dish.
If you have a really good Ratatouille recipe, please share in the comments.

Winter weather tomato soup

Snowed in? Kids off from school? Let them make their own lunch: Tomato Soup.
We've made this soup for years and loved it. Can be done on the stove top, but we did it in the microwave so the kids could easily share in its creation.

Cooked romaine lettuce

Don't let those 3-head packs of romaine frighten you because you don't think you could use them up before they collapse into a heap of wilted goo. Romaine is great cooked. A head cut up and sauteed with garlic in olive oil is a great side veg. Anyplace you use spinach you can use romaine, e.g. in soup, on pasta, etc.

Soup Weather

Soups make a great way to get vegetables into your family.
And the recent cold weather gives a perfect excuse for serving soup as a main course.
What are some of your favorite soups, and what vegetables do they contain?
I love cream of broccoli soup, and it can be made out of almost any broccoli - fresh, frozen, even leftovers.
