Thanks to the Whole30, I’ve been rediscovering the wonderful world of vegetables. Although my meat consumption has predictably increased, my greens intake has multiplied exponentially. My college self is in disbelief (and, I’m sure, clinging on to garlic and cheese breadsticks with a passion)! I’ve been doing a lot of on-the-fly vegetable cooking now, and take an inordinate amount of pride and pleasure in each process. For those who might need some tips on technique, check out Food 52’s how-to on roasting and The Kitchn’s guide on stir-frying.
This holiday weekend, I’ll be out of the house enjoying this blessedly gorgeous weather — volunteering, hiking, picnicking — but am sure to find myself back in the kitchen, happily cooking, in no time.
