These vegetable recipes
are very tasty and nutritious.
Unfortunately my children still prefer some canned varieties which they know drives me crazy. Slowly I’m getting them to eat fresh vegetables.
Fresh vegetables are featured in almost every Italian meal. They are used in sauces, prepared as a side dish or served as an antipasto. They provide a variety of vitamins, are low in fat and provide fiber.
Italy is a land of vegetables. Zucchini, tomatoes, artichokes, cauliflower and a host of other vegetables are plentiful. One of the greatest sights in Italy is an Italian market. Here you’ll find fresh fruits and vegetables direct from the farms.
A typical Italian dinner may not only feature boiled or steamed vegetables, but also fried, stuffed or baked. Many main Italian meals are based just on vegetables. For instance one of my favorites, eggplant Parmesan is a great choice for a Sunday dinner.
Here you’ll find plenty of vegetable recipes to serve mainly as side dishes and I’ll make sure I include some main dishes like the eggplant Parmesan.
