Garden Veggie Gusto

A quick and easy way to eat a heaping helping of veggies is to make this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Veggies Extraordinaire. It may have a vintage name, but in truth it contains current enlightened preparation techniques — cooked in a modest amount of healthful olive oil, with minimally processed flavorings like grape juice, lemon juice and oregano.

Some of summer’s tastiest garden produce are featured:  broccoli, eggplant, onions and tomatoes, with ballast added from potatoes and carrots, as well as mushrooms. Every veggie contains cancer-fighting phytochemicals, vitamins and fiber. It’s a one-pot dish that will have you wanting seconds. Serve it over brown rice or with a hunk of whole-grain bread for a satisfying meal.
