Today, I love veggies. Still.

That’s right, we extended our veggie fest for another week. Photos by the talented O and recipes from:

1. Smitten Kitchen | Pasta with Cauliflower, Walnuts and Feta
2. Joy The Baker | Tomato Zucchini Soup
3. Tales of Me and The Husband | Black Bean Burgers

All three were really good, but my favorite was probably the soup. We don’t have an immersion blender so I left it a little chunky. I felt like patting myself on the back repeatedly for consuming so many vegetables in one sit-down. Plus, the recipe is so big that we have a bunch of leftovers in the freezer. If you don’t know it already, that’s a major feat for a runner who consumes approximately 9721 calories each day (him) and a person who just really likes to eat (me). The burgers were also particularly tasty. Next time, imma add that suggested jalepeno for a little kick.

If you look closely at photos number two & three, you’ll also see these:

2b. Smitten Kitchen | Broccoli Parmesan Fritters
3b. Paula Deen | Baked Sweet Potato Fries

We can’t think of anything, vegetable or otherwise, that we don’t like when fried. This now includes broccoli.

Emily - Hey! Hi! Designing it has been fun. You’ll love the burgers. They really are good. Although, as O said, “They don’t taste like meat”. Ha, ha.
