Summertime Veggies!

Summer is here and so is the summer produce!  If you haven't tasted some of these vegetables since school lunch growing up (usually canned and mushy) give them another try!!

Where to find?  Most cities have a weekly local farmers market.  Check it out for the most fresh versions of summer produce (or if you are lucky, you can pick out of your own garden!)

Here is a delicious idea for one of our favorite vegetables:

Grilled Brussel Sprouts
That's right...they are delicious prepared this way vs. the mushy green balls served in a school cafeteria many years ago.  Try them, you just may find out you like them!!  They are also a great source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and fiber!

Clean and cut off the stem end and remove any discolored (yellow) outer leaves.  Pre-cook them a little by microwaving them on high for 3 minutes OR boiling them for 3 minutes.    Allow sprouts to cool so you can handle them and then place on a skewer and brush the sprouts with olive oil and sprinkle on your favorite seasonings (dry mustard, garlic powder, paprika, or even just salt and pepper, your choice).  Grill 3-5 minutes on each side and enjoy!

Other yummy veggies to grill right now include:  asparagus, peppers, sweet onions, potatoes, etc.

We will share more delicious recipes next week!
