I am the only one who eats vegetables in our family, so it’s a waste of time to do anything more than steam or roast (which I do more and more lately, and Emma seems to be coming on board; Bruce, Mr. I-Hate-Vegetables, is hopeless). So, when we have guests I love to experiment with greens—or make sauteed cherry tomotoes with garlic, or sauteed shredded cucumber with butter and dill (great with fish!). Since I’m not getting any inspiration from my family, please send yours! Also, I never know what to make when my friend Daryn, who’s a vegetarian, comes over—any suggestions?
