What's Your Favorite Fall Vegetable
Take the Vegetable Poll and See the Worlds Favorite Fall Vegetables!

The fresh vegetable sections in most supermarkets, farmers' markets, and gourmet groceries are overflowing with an amazing range of produce, both familiar and exotic.

Consumers are tempted by kale and kohlrabi, taro and tomatillos, bok choy and burdock, along with all the familiar choices.

Now acclaimed cookbook author and food writer Jack Bishop offers a comprehensive A-to-Z guide to this Bounty of produce, complete with selection tips, preparation instructions, and hundreds of recipes for more than sixty-six commonly available vegetables.

With Bishop's expert advice, you'll learn how to coax the very best flavor from every vegetable, whether it's a carrot, cauliflower, or cardoon.

Wondering how and when to buy the sweetest green beans? Bishop suggests buying at the height of summer, and selecting beans that are crisp and slim (older, thicker beans will be mealy and bland).

Confused about how to cook the spring's first sorrel? Bishop offers such unique and delicious dishes as Sorrel and Potato Soup and Sorrel Frittata.

Power Up Your Plate With Vegetables

Recipe for Vegetable Quinoa Pilaf

(Family Features) With only 6 percent of Americans getting the recommended amount of vegetables a day*, access to delicious, easy and versatile veggie-powered meals is more important than ever.

Marcus Samuelsson, an award-winning chef and cookbook author, has joined Birds Eye vegetables to help inspire and enable people to think about vegetables as a pleasure, to shake up old habits and help bring vegetables back to the center of the plate - especially for the next generation.

The spiral vegetable slicer cuts vegetables and fruits into curly, ribbon-like slices.

By placing the vegetable or fruit on the prongs of the wheel and turning the wheel while pushing the base toward the vertical julienne blade, continuous spiral strands

Don't Hide, Highlight Veggies

Vegetables deserve center stage because they're amazing.

They are delicious, colorful, good for you and taste great, too. Inspiring people - especially kids - to discover the wonder of vegetables starts with highlighting vegetables as the center of the plate, not as an understudy.

"Vegetables are great for any meal, so put them forward as a gift to your family every day," says Samuelsson.

"It's extremely important that we start making nutritious, veggie-powered meals for ourselves and the next generation."

Follow the 60/40 Rule

Instead of thinking about dishes as 60 percent pasta and 40 percent vegetables, turn it around, serving veggies as 60 percent and pasta as 40 percent of the meal.

"Flipping the proportions of your favorite meals is a quick, easy way to incorporate more veggies into meals your family already loves."

Mix and Match Colors, Textures and Flavors

Enjoy a variety of veggies at the same time to truly showcase the wonder of a veggie-powered plate.

Incorporating many different veggies brings flavor, crunch and a nutritious punch to almost any dish.
"My ideal veggie-powered plate is a Vegetable and Quinoa Pilaf.

It's loaded with a wonderful broccoli, carrots and cauliflower medley from Birds Eye."

For every veggie-powered plate created on Facebook, Birds Eye will donate vegetables for 10 meals as part of its Feed Kids Better initiative with Share Our Strength (up to 1 million meals through September 2012).
