Recipe Collection For A Bounty of Vegetables

By , September 21, 2010

September is always a very busy month in our kitchen as I scramble to use as much of our fresh garden produce in as many meals, smoothies, muffins, and cookies as possible! I’ve also been freezing meals made with garden produce, as well as freezing the produce itself to use in the coming winter months (so far, cooked kale as well as peach & cucumber slices for smoothies).

So I’ve put together a recipe collection (from my archive) categorized by vegetable in hopes that it might give you some fresh ideas if you’re overloaded with a particular veggie at this time of the year!

    Awesome! I love having recipes organized like this, thank you. I just got a great book from the library, “Simply in Season” and all the recipes are arranged around one ingredient, like tomatoes or zucchini. Makes it soooo much easier to eat seasonally, to figure out what to do with all the giant squash from the garden or the bunches of greens from the CSA.

    Hey Linds, do you grow kale in your garden? It has come in my CSA box several times this season and I have yet to find a favorite way to fix it. What do you do with it?
    Love, Kate

    It’s amazing how many recipes you have shared since you started your blog.

    Hi Kate,
    I let my Red Russian kale go to seed last year and now we have kale everywhere! I love to steam it, and then melt cream cheese over it; it’s not a dish that’s very visually appealing, but it’s so good I could eat the whole pan of it! But probably my favorite way of preparing it is southern-collard-greens style, stewed with bacon, sauteed onions, and some other things. That recipe is on my list to make and freeze, and will hopefully share that SOON!

  9. Lindsey says:

    Vivica,

    See ya!
    Lindsey
