Vegetables

It's easy to fall into a rut when it comes to vegetables and default to your favorite bagged varieties, but there's more to life than frozen peas and corn. Experimenting with new vegetable recipes -- and using familiar ones in new ways - is a great way to liven up the dinner table. Add a touch of butter and heavy cream to steamed parsnips, purée, and you've got a silky, unexpected side dish. Roast cauliflower florets, then drizzle with browned butter. Bake a halved spaghetti squash and toss the pasta-like strands with olive oil (they're a good stand-in for real noodles in a pinch, too!). Whether you grill, stir-fry, or use your vegetables in a salad, you'll be happy to welcome new ideas to the table. Check out your local farmers market for more ideas - seeing what's in season is great inspiration.
