Vegetarian, Vegan, or Omnivore, we all eat our veggies (or at least we should). Sometimes though, it can get a little dull. Would you like those steamed, sauteed in a pan with olive oil, or in a salad? Most of us were raised with frozen or canned veggies which leaves little room for creativity. Sometimes, though, the same old just isn’t going to cut it, and you need some new ideas. Weather you’re an avid gardener with a crop of veggies taking over your kitchen, a regular at the local farmer’s market, or just someone looking for new ways to get their veggies and make sure their family does as well, here are 25 Recipes That You Can Make Using Fruits And Veggies From Your Garden.
Today is Campus Sustainability Day (October 26, 2016). Growing your own fruits and veggies is a fantastic way to live a more sustainable life while also allowing you to take pride in the fruits of your labor (pun intended). We hope these recipes inspire you to live at least some days in a more sustainable way. If nothing else, they’ll help you incorporate the use of some fruits and veggies into your kitchen.
