Veggies for Dinner

A trip to my favorite farm stand this weekend didn’t disappoint. While my own vegetables are still working their way up through the earth, the produce sold at a farm near my house was lined up and ready to go. Among the booty I brought home were tender green beans, sweet onions, baby red potatoes, and several rare and irresistible “black” tomatoes.

Whenever I see a vegetable display such as this I can only think one thing: Salad Nicoise, that lusty Provencal composed salad accented with Nicoise olives. Sure, the traditional version calls for tuna, but I like mine with thinly sliced pan-seared extra-firm tofu. Arrange the components on leaf lettuce, drizzle on some vinaigrette, and dinner is served.

Does anyone else out there have a favorite way to enjoy these veggies?

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. My favorite way to have red potatoes is just roasted in the oven with olive oil and whatever herbs I have on hand. I love fresh green beans & mushrooms cooked in a pan with garlic butter. Now I am hungry, I think that I will add those items to my shopping list. 🙂
