The Vegetable Recipes I am offering in this section are exciting and substantial enough to be main course. Vegetarians who eat bland, unrecognizable foods are creatures of the past. The vegetarians I cook for want colorful dishes, vibrant colors and fragrances, and unusual ingredients. Even if you are a diehard meat-and-potato type, you will appreciate the following vegetable recipes. These dishes are creations in their own right, and can be served as side dishes or entrees.
