Weekly Vegetable Idea

Hello folks!

I have an idea! There is a realm of fresh produce out there and many people, including myself, need ideas on how to cook them. So here is what I want to do. Every Sunday, we will pick a vegetable. It can be as simple as a green bean or something you don't cook with often, such as a rutabaga. As long as it is something I can get my hands on, we will go with it. Once we have picked the vegetable, I will try to find or conjure up new recipes and ways to prepare them. Maybe there is a vegetable that you don't like. Maybe it will be a challenge to find a way you will like it. Whatever we do, we will learn together! We don't get enough vegetable in our diets so maybe with my idea, we can all experience natures bounties and not be so bored by them.

With that said, I need some ideas for our first vegetable. Comment at any time so we can see what we have to pick from. Next Sunday, we will choose one and then start thinking about the next. Then during next week, I will hopefully be posting some new and exciting recipes of that vegetable!

I get inspirations from people. My wife never liked Brussel Sprouts. So I grew them in the garden one year and decided to try some different methods and see what I can come up with. Low and behold, I discovered a way that she now LOVES Brussel Sprouts. So never knock something until you've tried it different ways. Be open to new possibilities and trying new things!

Can't wait to be inspired by your thoughts and comments!


  1. I can't think of a vegetable that I don't like but I do want to know some new ways to cook asparagus.

  2. I have an AWESOME recipe for asparagus! We will have to see if it is going to be the vegetable of the week!

  3. You should cook something with raddishes I hate those
