Eat Your Vegetables!

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.

I ran across a great recipe for steamed broccoli by Ellen Bales. I'm sharing it here.
Why don't our members share a favorite broccoli recipe on this discussion today? Just add a link in the comments for your recipes.
Thanks!

Vegetable Party!

I thought it would be fun to plan a get-together using recipes only from the Eat Your Vegetables group. I haven't edited the group recipes very much, so I'm sure there are those in there that do not pertain to vegetables. However, I am going to choose a complete menu using what's available here. It shouldn't be hard - there are over 5,000 recipes posted to this group!
I hope some of you will join in and plan a party, reunion dinner, baby shower, wedding reception or just a good family dinner, using these recipes.
Mine will be a buffet.

Decided I would find a bowl of lettuce a good snack treat if I had homemade Caesar dressing for it in the fridge. Whirred some up in the food processor. Mission accomplished. Recipe here: Heidi's Peppery Caesar Dressing (mayo not raw egg) Put my name in the recipe so I'd remember this is only for me, not for hubby who doesn't really like a Caesar salad and wouldn't be happy with the black pepper's prominence.

I'd have to say it's a toss-up between pumpkin and asparagus!

Green for St. Patrick's Day!

I'd like to see a collection of green vegetable recipes for St. Patrick's Day.
Let's start with Green Green Salad. Someone once told me that the pepper rings resemble shamrocks!
Then you can't be Irish without potatoes, so also take a look at Green Potatoes (Shirley Nicholson). We love this dish, and found it's even better topped with some sharp white cheddar cheese.
Then there are just plain greens - one of the top 8 healthiest foods on the planet. Here are two informative articles about eating greens: Spinach and Dark Leafy Greens and 10 Great Greens.
Less obvious, but still just as green, here are recipes for Peas with Mint, Susan's Fried Green Tomatoes and Fresh Homemade Guacamole.
And for dessert, who can resist MARGARITA CUPCAKES w/ Tequila lime frosting. (Hey, they've got lime in them!)

I hope others will post some of your green vegetable and fruit recipes!

I've probably run a column on Pumpkin before, but thought it was worth repeating with the season upon us. So please post some of your favorite pumpkin recipes here, and we can all share in tasty ways to eat this vegetable.
