Maple Glazed Carrots

Bathed in maple syrup and butter, sweet carrots become a special treat. If you find bunched carrots with tops, pick the bunch with the thinnest carrots and leave a bit of the stem attached for a pretty presentation.

Corn & Leek Bean Fritters

This tasty vegan recipe is full of protein, fiber, and lots of flavor. Serve with herbed yogurt atop a bed of greens for a satisfying meal. 

Roasted Cauliflower with Potatoes and Feta

A great side for a grilled chicken breast or tempeh steak, these baked veggies with feta can also be a main dish, served over orzo pasta, brown rice or polenta.

Peanut Sesame Noodles

Noodles with peanut sauce is a family favorite, served warm or cold. Creamy peanut sauce over noodles and veggies create an intoxicating dish that's just as good the next day, too. Substitute almond or other nut butters for those with a peanut allergy.

Fried Green Tomatoes

Make sure to choose very green, very firm tomatoes for this recipe. Once they start to turn color, they will soften and become much harder to fry. You’ll find the best green tomatoes in early July, and again at the end of August. 

Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

No mushy tomatoes here! Using a quick flash of high heat, this recipe imparts a lot of flavor into the tomatoes with only a few ingredients and a short amount of time. 

Roasted Sweet Corn Bread

Cornbread is always a treat, but when you have some leftover grilled corn, you have a fantastic addition to a pan of golden goodness. This one makes a great side for beans, soups and greens. 

Japanese Grilled Eggplant

These are a great izakaya-style appetizer, or chop coarsely and add to a bowl of hearty udon noodles. Make extra miso sauce, and use as a dressing for a cold grilled eggplant udon noodle salad, served with chopped scallions on top. 

Summer Rolls

You can easily adapt this recipe and make up your own fillings! Quinoa makes for a great plant-based protein and you can easily make a sweet version with fresh fruits instead of veggies.
