Summer vegetables are abundant right now and two favorite are squashes and tomatoes. The diversity of both vegetables offers infinite opportunities for easy and exciting wholesome meals for all ages and tastes. Take advantage of the bounty of summer produce available while enjoying the warm sunny weather. Taking advantage of fresh summer vegetables is another step towards maintaining a healthy lifestyle and continuing to provide flavorful meals to your loved ones. For a side dish try the Creamed Vegetables on page 60, or the Vegetable Au Gratin on page 66. When you serve the vegetables with a thick slice of whole grain rustic bread and sweet butter, the result is a light, high energy, nutrient dense meal. Use your imagination and the fresh vegetables on-hand. If you are looking for a main dish, then the Creamy Vegetable Soufflé on page 62 with a blend of fresh summer vegetables and a touch of fresh grated cheddar cheese or your favoriate cheese, is the one for you. It even includes 10 grams of protein!
