We don't eat meat lately and would like some T & T veggie recipes. No beans please, and I won't eat mushrooms. Thanks

We liked this recipe but I use red peppers and leave out the mushrooms in my half, Ken likes the mushrooms in his - I know you could add in anything else you might like such as corn.

Here is a new one I made last week. Unbelievably good as a side, but I think it would make a nice entree served over rice or orzo, too.

Grilled Ratatouille
Source: Rachel Ray Magazine

3 large tomatoes, halved crosswise
2 bell peppers, quartered
2 zucchini, thickly sliced lengthwise
1 eggplant, thickly sliced lengthwise
1 onion, thickly sliced crosswise
1 head garlic, halved crosswise
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup pitted kalamata olives, sliced
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Preheat a grill to medium-high. On a large baking sheet, arrange the tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, onion and garlic in a single layer. Brush with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Transfer the vegetables to the grill and cook, turning once, until just tender and slightly charred, about 5 minutes for the tomatoes, 8 minutes for the peppers, zucchini and eggplant and 10 minutes for the onions and garlic. Return to the baking sheet and let stand until cool enough to handle.

Chop the peppers, zucchini, eggplant and onions into ½-inch pieces and transfer to a large bowl. Squeeze out the garlic cloves, finely chop and add to the bowl. Working over the bowl, slip off and discard the tomato skins and remove the cores, then crush the tomatoes with your hands and add to the bowl. Add the olives and vinegar, season with salt and pepper and toss.

1/28/10 This is incredible! I subbed a carrot for the eggplant. Could easily sub black olives for the kalamata. I also grilled them on my cast iron stove-top grill pan. Worked well.

We love Vegetable Fritto Misto. It's a Giada D recipe. Check the reviews following the recipe for tips (using an eggwash is a great idea). We loved the lemon slices (what a surprise!) and the fennel the most. I just tossed some mayo, garlic, lemon juice and cayenne in the food processor for my dip and it was very good.

I've been roasting all kinds of different vegetables like this:

Roasted Brussels Sprouts


* 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and yellow leaves removed, halved
* 3 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (205 degrees C).
  2. Place trimmed Brussels sprouts, olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Seal tightly, and shake to coat. Pour onto a baking sheet, and place on center oven rack.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, shaking pan every 5 to 7 minutes for even browning. Reduce heat when necessary to prevent burning. Brussels sprouts should be darkest brown, almost black, when done. Adjust seasoning with kosher salt, if necessary. Serve immediately.

And any lightly steamed veggie covered in hollandaise sauce will be devoured! LOL

More of a side dish, but we love sliced zucchini, red pepper and onion seasoned with garlic salt, chili powder and cumin. I've roasted and sauteed them - I think the roasted is better.

If you have some asparagus that is getting past its prime, hereÂs a good way to use it up:

ASPARAGUS PANCAKES Â makes 20 (2 inch) pancakes

1/ 2 lb. trimmed fresh asparagus, cut into 1-inch length
2 large eggs
1/ 4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/ 2 tsp. salt
1/ 8 tsp. black pepper
3 Tbs. flour
1 Tbs. melted butter
Hollandaise sauce (optional)

Cook the asparagus in salted water to cover just until tender, 2 to 3 minute. Drain and let cool to room temperature. Finely chop in a food processor or with a knife.

In medium bowl, whisk the eggs until thoroughly mixed. Whisk in the cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the asparagus and flour and stir until evenly blended.

Preheat a large heavy skillet or griddle over moderate heat. Brush very lightly with a little of the melted butter. Using 1 tablespoon of the batter for each pancake, spoon the batter onto the hot surface and cook until the edges become dry and dull and the underside golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn with a spatula and cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer to a hot platter and repeat with the remaining batter and melted butter. Serve topped with a little dollop of Hollandaise sauce, if desired.

Notes: Herbs like tarragon or marjoram can be added to the batter.
