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!


Roasted or fresh with hummus.


Refrigerator pickles... quick, easy and delicious!

Green Beans

Steamed with caramelized onions & almonds.

Green Onions (Scallions)

Sauteed Scallions with Garlic


Baked with oil & sea salt as kale chips.


Blistered Shishitos


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!

Sugar Snap Peas

Roasted Sugar Snap Peas

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.


Fried Green Tomatoes

Balsamic Bruschetta

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!


Buttered Turnip Puree (I halved the amount of butter and it was fine)


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!
