Shockingly, Vegetables Can Taste Good [CharlieBrown'sDildo]

I actually like vegetables, but most dishes whose main ingredients are vegetables taste....fine. Not great, or even very good. For most people, foodgasms usually revolve around some protein/fat combination like a big grilled steak, or a fantastic burger with great toppings. But the protein ration has been increased from 150 grams/day to 120 grams/day, so making do with less has become quite pressing.

Ratatuille is a classic French dish with about 8,000 versions, but this one is the best I have tried, at least in part because the timing of the cooking ensures that each vegetable is cooked correctly, so the dish isn't a tasteless mush. So people who want a trip down memory lane to the slop they dished out in the middle school cafeteria will have to find another recipe.

I serve this over a big pile of rice, but it's great on its own too.


Ratatouille

Ingredients
●1/4 cup olive oil, plus more as needed
●1 ½ cups small diced onion
●1 teaspoon minced garlic
●2 cups medium diced eggplant,
●½ teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
●1 cup diced yellow bell peppers
●1 cup diced red bell peppers
●1 ½ cup diced zucchini squash
●1 ½ cup diced yellow squash
●1 ½ cups peeled, seeded and chopped tomatoes, or one can of good chopped tomatoes
●1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
●1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
● Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

●Set a large 12-inch sauté pan over medium heat and add the olive oil.
●Once hot, add the onions and garlic to the pan.
●Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until they are wilted and lightly caramelized, about 5 to 7 minutes.
●Add the eggplant and thyme to the pan and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggplant is partially cooked, about 5-7 minutes. Add more oil as needed.
●Add the yellow and red peppers, zucchini, and squash and continue to cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.
●Add the tomatoes, basil, parsley, and salt and pepper, to taste, and cook for a final 5-7 minutes.
●Stir well to blend and serve either hot or at room temperature.

The best vegetarian recipes I've ever tried came from a book called Fit for Life. The Garlic Green Beans are yummy. With cornbread.

And the best recipe for collard greens came from one of my cousins back home in Alabama, again with buttered (not margarined)cornbread. Cook 'em all day long with a small pepper and a hamhock, serve them over diced onion and tomato. Adjust pepper to taste, they can be made hot or just tangy. And if you have any cornbread left over, pour some molasses on it for dessert.

14 The problem I have noticed with cooking in general is that over the past 2 or 3 generations, many women for whatever reason, job etc, has failed to pass down to their sons and daughters cooking skills. What spices go together, how much to use, Broiled, boiled, fried, stewed or nude? It's a part of Americana we have traded in for time and convenience. A part I fear we will never get back.

20 Much of traditional Sicilian cookery is vegetables, owing to its history of being a poor country. But their dishes rely on just a few ingredients cooked simply. The key is freshness.

I do not have cable TV but stumbled upon a BBC series hosted by Brit chef Rick Stein, "Rick Stein's Mediterranean Escapes," that is well worth watching.
His episodes in Sicily, Corsica and Sardinia in particular have an emphasis on veggies.

Mr. Obama repeatedly lost patience with the speaker as negotiations faltered. In an Oval Office meeting last week, he told Mr. Boehner that if the sides didn’t reach agreement, he would use his inaugural address and his State of the Union speech to tell the country the Republicans were at fault.

Hmmm. I love the idea of the diced toms/onions and also adding a pepper to the collard greens. But how do I "adjust" it? Size of the pepper? Kind of pepper? (Do you use jalapeno or what?)
What would you suggest if you just want a little nip but don't want it to be hot?
Or were you talking about adding black pepper "to taste" later?

Tell me about it. My mom, the highly educated single mother, can barely cook.spaghetti. When she went to the store for me after my last baby, she had to call me 4 ,times to figure out the ingredients for baked chicken.

I could barely make hamburget helper when I got married. Now I'm a decent cook because of sheer force of will. Would have been nice to have been taught along the way. That's why I let my kids pull up a chair and "help" even.if it does make things more difficult in the short term.

The name of the pepper escapes me right now, but they're about 3-4" long, red, about the diameter of a pencil. One of those in the pot suits me, you can also cut them in half. They're not real hot, well, just one of them isn't. And they're not jalapenos. I find them in the local health food store.

I'd know them if I saw them. Needless to say, I haven't made them in a while... I should rememdy that.

55 I avoided ratatouille for years because, hey, eggplant and zucchini? Just sounded so... blah.

Last time home on leave I broke down and made a batch, and Jeez Louise, was it frickin' good! I made some every week while home.

Then there's a Sicilian variant of it called caponata, which is invariably served at room temperature as an antipasto, and is also excellent. So I say, eggplant and zucchini, yay!

Posted by: Steve Skubinna at December 22, 2012 01:21 PM (HoGA+)

56 I grow my own veggies: getting them fresh makes *all* the difference.

Broccoli is terrific. Once the main head is cut, the plants continue to grow side buds, which are tender. Even if you get it from the farmer's market, there is *nothing* as good as broccoli that's cut off the plant, then either lightly steamed and served with butter and lemon, or tossed into a stir-fry.

The same is true of my green onions, green beans, and bok choi: freshly cut, then put into a stir fry, with some thin slices of marinated beef, pork, or chicken, is a meal fit for a king. (I use a very sharp knife to slice the meat while it's still frozen, so I can cut it paper-thin). Serve over rice, with a good IPA in your glass: it just doesn't get any better.

I also grow potatoes. You wouldn't think the humble spud could actually be good, but when it's freshly dug out of the ground, it's unbelieveably tasty: whether boiled and mashed, or boiled, then sliced and stir-fried, they're *really* good. When stir-fried, I like them with ketchup; my wife prefers just a little salt; either way, they're ambrosial.

And you haven't really tasted a tomato unless you've eaten one just picked off the vine.

Now that the days are starting to get longer, a batch of gardening catelogues just arrived in the mail: time to start planning for spring. I can hardly wait!

66 Friends, there is nothing better than rice covered with speckled butterbeans and stewed okra. You put that on a plate with a nice porkchop seasoned with Cavender's and grilled on the old G.Foreman grill. Add a few fresh peppers, cornbread, and tea, and as GOD is my witness, it is what South Carolina is all about. Of course, New Years requires collards and black-eyed peas. This works in East Texas, as well.
