For the Love of Food: Farmer’s Market Veggie Delight

Posted on by Alycia

This colorful dish was crafted using only vegetables that were grown right here in South Jersey.  Last summer/early is a great time to stock up on vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers and eggplant before the frost comes in.

This dish is super-simple, and very flavorful.  It’s great if you’re trying to impress a friend, a first date, or your family – it looks intense, but all it takes is a sharp knife and some simple seasonings!

Chop up some heirloom eggplant (purple and squat), white onion, baby tomatoes (we got these from this farmer), zucchini, and sweet red peppers.  Very quantities depending on how many people you are serving.

Toss all of the vegetables, except the tomatoes, into a large sautee pan with some olive oil, a splash of water, and cover. Cook on low to medium heat for about 7 minutes.

Uncover and add in the tomatoes, season with black pepper and garlic powder, and continue to cook until the skins of the tomatoes begin to wrinkle.

Add to your dinner plate and eat!

    This looks awesome. After our food discussion about eating while travelling, the last two weeks I brought food with me for the entire week. Last week I brought a whole turkey (Pre-cooked) and brocoli and asparagus.

    This week I brought enough pork chops for the week and a cauliflower asparagus and raisin vegetable medley and 2 avocados. It cost me $13 for the groceries and made 5 meals. Definitely a per diem saver and a healthier way to eat on the road. Cant say I am strictly paleo I still eat dairy and of course those damn Hampton Inn cookies at check in but I’m not perfect and I’m definitely trying to eat cleaner.

    Awesome, Jill!
    Yeah, when traveling for work, your food selections, preparations, etc should mirror what you do at home, as closely as possible. Sounds like it’s going great for you this week!
    So glad.
    Hampton Inn cookies must be made of crack. I rarely can pass one up, either.

    I just read this after driving from Dr Nelson’s in Atco to my office in Trenton. I pass (roughly, give or take) 887 Wawas on that trip. But I was good and didn’t go to any of those despite a love affair with the Wawa hoagie in a (not so very far in the) past version of my life. Instead, I packed my lunch like I’ve been doing every day for the past six months, and I can honestly say that, after just eating a pile of grassfed beef that i smeared guacamole all over (yowzers!) plus a pile of raw carrots, I made the right choice. I am getting to the point where I don’t miss bread/rolls/etc at all. Pretty cool….

    Yeah, its great when eating well actually feels better than eating bad foods. My weird stomach noises are enough of a scolding to keep me on the right track most of the time.
    Beef + guacamole = heaven on a plate.
    887 Wawa’s is a lot.
