Call for vegetable recipes

I realize that I don't have a very large group of people who follow this blog, but I'm still going to boldly go forward and issue my first call for recipes. Is anyone out there willing to share their favorite vegetable recipes? I'll be happy to post them here and give you full credit. I usually just cook frozen veggies and add a little butter and salt. But I'd like to find some new recipes that will help me to eat more healthily.

  1. Hmmm...I always follow the blog. I'm really a beginner in the cooking category though. I've found some good recipes lately in Real Simple magazine. Including a couple for greens - which I don't always like. Here's a link to a huge list for them. http://browse.realsimple.com/results.html?enh_recipe_search_btn.x=36&N=39+4294967138+4294967143&enh_recipe_search_btn.y=20

  2. Hi Mary! Great to see your smiling face! Thanks for the link. I've heard good things about Real Simple from other people and have just started subscribing to their magazine. But I've only tried one recipe so far. I need to try some more. I hope all is well.

  4. Hey Doug! I'm thinking more of veggies as a side dish, so if you know of delicious ways to prepare potatoes, carrots, asparagus, squash, beans, or whatever, that would be great. I'd also be happy to get easy and tasty salad recipes.

  5. Hi Kip,

    What a great idea!

    Here's a broccoli gratin recipe that I've made several times with great success. It dresses broccoli up enough that almost everyone likes it:

    Here is one of my all-time favorites, eggplant parmesan. It's more of a main dish than a side dish, but could work as a side dish if you're really ambitious.

  6. I am excited to try that broccoli gratin recipe! I am sure most of my veggie recipes are the same as yours. I tried some roasted brussel sprouts that turned out pretty good. Similar method to other roasted vegetables.
