If there are members who still have cauliflower, they can make giardinera. All of the ingredients came in one basket with the exception of the banana pepper. Cauliflower, onion, Carrot, celery, red peppers, cucumber, banana peppers, enough white vinegar diluted slightly with water to cover veggies in jar, and sea salt! Pack cut veggies in jar. Boil vinegar water and salt. Cool slightly and pour over veggies. Process for storage or cool completely and refrigerate to enjoy now

Remember EZPOT, as per Melissa & her French MIL, that’s the order in which the veggies must be added to the pot without deviation… eggplant, zucchini, pepper, onion, tomato.
I made a delicious vegetable chicken lasagna this weekend. Very healthy and tasty.
I diced into small pieces 1 yellow summer squash, 1 stalk of celery, 1 very large!!! carrot (I used my mini chopper to dice this), 1 red pepper, 1 green pepper. I used alfredo sauce and cooked diced chicken, 4 cloves of garlic (I used my garlic press) and a sprig or 2 of celantro and simmered all the veggies in th…at. Then I used an 8 oz container of ricotta cheese mixed with 2 garlic cloves, 1 egg and lots of spinach. I put olive oil on the bottom of my 13X9 and put down a row of lasagna noodles. On top of them I put the cheese mixture and placed thinly sliced roma tomatoes on top. Another layer of noodle and the chicken alfredo mixture. Another layer of noodles and topped it off with mozzarella cheese. Bake 350 for 1 hour.
In a large pot slice and dice every vegetable in your vegetable drawer (no potatoes tho… ). I love it with: zuc, sq, onions, celery, tomatoes, lots of fresh garlic, shredded cabbage (napa is best, but any will do)bamboo shoots, red/green peppers, bean sprouts, carrots (shredded) and a whole bunch of cilantro (stems and all). Add beef stock and red pepper oil to taste. I usually make this when we have a sushi night. Yummy 🙂
