Stuff It

What to do when you're up to your ears in vegetables? Regardless if they're from your garden or the farmers' market, tis the season to be inundated with vegetables. There's worse problems to have.

So, what do you do with all these veggies? I know! Stuff them . . . with more veggies! Below are some of my favorite stuffed creations:

Growing up in Northern Minnesota, I love wild rice hot dish. I also love squash. So, despite my state currently debating whether or not to limit the freedom to marry (vote no!), I married the two. I introduce to you: Wild Rice Stuffed Squash.

If squash isn't your thing, you could stuff ... Peppers with Italian-style Quinoa. Learn from my mistakes, spray a little oil on the bread crumbs to get them toasty brown.

Maybe, you're stubbornly refusing to turn on your oven or need a quick and tasty hors d'ouevre for a social gathering. Or maybe you're swimming in tomatoes (romas work best)...try Nava Atlas's deviled tomatoes. Yes, I know chickpeas are legumes and not technically vegetables, but there's chives too :)
