I was living the life last summer with the help of a UPick Farm. You can look back at my blogs during the summer for not only ideas, but pictures. Here are my basic helpful suggestions:
Stirfries - a bunch of vegetables with some nuts for flavor
Hot Salad - a bunch of greens tossed with a fruit dressing (mango, berries etc with some balsamic vinegar, with some hot topping - depending upon your type of veg trend poached egg flavored with smoky paprika,or eggplant and squash with goat cheese, or marinated tofu
Fruit Smoothies with protein powder (vegan you can use rice)
"dip tray" - tons of sliced, peppers, cucumbers, etc with homemade hummus
Peanut butter and fresh fruit sandwiches - sliced strawberries are the best!
Ratatouille - make a base of tomatoes, red wine and onions - reduce and then put over the top summer squash, eggplant and zucchini
Mushroom stroganoff (Alton Brown has a great one, use UNO instead of sour cream)
Have fun....this is the best adventure, trust me the flavors of cooking with vegetables is the best. Today I made a crock pot stew with red onions, potatoes, red peppers, mushrooms, buttercup squash and a dash of worchestershire sauce and applesauce....trust me I'm not missing the meat.
