Browsing "Vegetables"

Vegetables are such wonderful things. With hundreds of worldwide varieties to choose from, there are so many different colors, textures, and tastes to make delicious meals or sides from. You simply cannot be a gourmet foodie and not have a love for vegetables.

Mom always said, "Eat your vegetables, they're good for you," which of course, is very true due to their high vitamin and mineral contents, but she should have said, "Eat your vegetables, they're freaking delicious!"

Here I will discuss some of my more unique favorites, offer suggestions of how to prepare and cook them, and link to my recipes where I use them.
