Vegetable Recipes Wanted

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Over the years I've collected a few vegetable recipes, and it would be nice to have a few more. Here's what I want and don't want - maybe you've got some new ideas:

I'd like savory or spicy recipes, especially for greens and other brassica. Fat is not an issue. I don't want sweet recipes - don't care much for sweets. Recipes that contain few, if any, carbohydrates would be ideal, so potatoes are low on the totom pole. I don't care much for corn, and beans are not highly desired but could be acceptable. Squash (summer and winter) recipes would be super, as would interesting things to do with lettuce and similar vegetables.

Thanks so much ....

Everyone has different tastes but here are a few ideas,




Grilled asperagus with feta
Roasted cauliflower with onions and fennel
Artichoke caponata
Roasted Endive and pancetta
Roasted root vegetables with olive oil, garlic , thyme or rosemary
Baby Bok Choy with garlic, olive oil, toasted sesame
Beet Carpaccio with goat cheese and arugula
Grilled asperagus with gargonzola
Steam your favorite vegetables and mix in Aioli
Roasted Fennel and carrots with pecorino
Broccoli , anchovies, garlic and black olives....

Do you have any vegetable in particular you like the most ?

Thanks for your response. Nothing here is particularly new or interesting. I've made most of these - hoping to find something a little different, something that's not all over the internet, in food magazines, and on TV cooking shows. New combinations, unusual pairings, etc. Josephine Araldo's book, From a Breton Garden (I think that's the correct name) has many such combinations and pairings.

I like most vegetables although I'm not too crazy about beets.

Hey Petals....What do you put in your artichoke caponata? I have some different versions and wondering how you make yours.
post #7 of 11
Hello Kirsten,




I do not think the dish I make is very special , that being said for the sauce I put in Italian plum tomatoes, “roasted red pepper” (peeled and mashed), fresh garlic, a drop of red wine, olive oil, brown sugar, basil, salt and pepper.


For the vegetables much like most styles : green olives, black olives, lemons, artichokes, olive oil (from Cyprus) celery, capers, grated parmesan, red wine vinegar, red wine. Now there might be some stuff in this recipe that might seem unusual, but it tastes great. Its usually best when made in advance, a day or so before serving.


To make it well , its much like most caponata recipes , I like a very thick texture.
Thank you for asking.

Artichokes Caponata - {Caponata Di Caciofi}

Recipe By :Mario Batali
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
8 artichokes
Lemon juice -- as needed
7 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 medium onion -- cut medium dice
1 small carrot -- peeled, and
chopped into rough 1/4" dice
12 green olives -- pitted
= (preferably Sicilian variety)
1 tablespoon salt-packed capers -- rinsed, dried
2 whole chiles
Salt -- to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste
2 tablespoons tomato paste
3 salt-packed anchovy fillets -- soaked in milk,
rinsed, patted dry, chopped
4 canned plum tomatoes -- peeled, seeded
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
4 tablespoons granulated sugar

Using a bread knife, carefully slice off the tips of the artichokes, remove all of the tough outer leaves, and using a paring knife peel the base. Cut each artichoke into quarters and remove the choke, as well as any prickly tips that may have formed on the inner leaves. Place in water with lemon juice. Drain. Cut each of these quarters into halves, to make wedges.

In a medium saucepan, heat 4 tablespoons of the extra-virgin olive oil, add onions, carrots, olives, capers, chiles, and drained artichokes. Season with salt and pepper. Toss to caramelize. Add more olive oil, season, add tomato paste and let ingredients bubble rapidly. Add anchovies. During the last 5 minutes add tomatoes. Add red wine vinegar and sugar and reduce 1 minute.

Serve hot or at room temperature with a salad.

This recipe yields 4 servings.

Sounds tasty. Anything with the words 'artichoke' or 'caponata' has me hooked. Red wine is different to me. I usually just use black olives, personal preference I guess. I think I might try that. Thanks for posting.

I love Batali (met the man and he is lovely) but a lot of his recipes are extensive and kind of intimidate me. If I could have any chef prepare dinner for me, he's up there.
