Our Favorite Recipes

Sometimes you'll buy a vegetable just to try it or because it's SO beautiful... but you have NO idea how to prepare it. Or you've been preparing it the same way for years and are ready for a change! I've tried to take some of the guesswork out of this by linking some of our favorite recipes from the internet here. We also occasionally post recipes we enjoy on our Facebook and Instagram page (#solidrootstable and #mealmonday), so be sure to follow us there! Please share any amazing recipes you find so I can give them a try! I'd love to add to this list!


Beets

How to Cook Beets- 3 methods

They are great roasted with balsamic glaze!

How about Pickled Beets & Eggs ?

Dursch Family Pickled Beets and Eggs

Or just roast and add to a salad!

Carrots

Roasted or fresh with hummus.

Cucumbers

Refrigerator pickles... quick, easy and delicious!

Green Beans

Steamed with caramelized onions & almonds.

Kale

Baked with oil & sea salt as kale chips.

Peppers

Blistered Shishitos

Radishes

Raw radishes can be sliced thin and added to salads, but they can be very spicy in hotter weather so I LOVE them roasted, added to mixed vegetable sautes (I'll do a future post about this) and pickled!

Swiss Chard

I like to chop and add to salads for extra color and a deeper flavor. Also good chopped and sauteed with garlic and olive oil- I like to add other veggies too, because the chard is a bit too earthy for me... think chopped sugar snaps, radishes, onions, garlic, carrot, kale and anything else you want to add.

Tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes

Caprese Salad - like this recipe, but we add balsamic glaze for extra amazing flavor

Pizza Margherita - we love this pizza, but also add sliced tomatoes before baking and finish with balsamic glaze after baking

Andy's Famous Pizza Sauce - we like to freeze this to use all winter long

Pico de Gallo - I divided this Cookie & Kate recipe by 4 to make enough topping for four tacos- very good!

Zucchini

Grilled, in bread, or baked with Parmesan!

Dill Dip for Veggies

This is my Grandma Goodpaster's recipe. It calls for dried dill but you can sub 1-2 T. fresh chopped dill for the dried dill...

1 c. Mayo

1 c. Sour Cream

1.5 t. Dill weed dried

1.5 t. Season salt

1 T. Dried Parsley

Pinch of garlic powder

Optional: one finely chopped green onion


Mix all and refrigerate for a few hours before serving for best taste. Amazing with fresh veggies!
