Braised vegetables go well on winter days. Young broccoli is so tender and bright when braised.

The garden centers are setting up for spring. I have been receiving emails advising me to consider my coming garden, and I am still thinking of winter vegetables. That is wrong. I am making plans for the spring by preparing the beds, but the winter vegetables dominate my thoughts, since I have been harvesting them for the table. Mustard that is a bit too spicy when fresh has a milder flavor in the stir fry. The kale an collards have a better flavor with the colder temperatures, but they are not as abundant (or I have been harvesting them heavily?). The cabbages are beginning to form their heads. Then I noticed that I could have broccoli for dinner.

Simple warm dishes for a cool day make for a nice change. Why not warm vegetables?

My wife has attended a few lectures on health at the hospital where she works. I think she focuses on the food discussions, even though she does not cook often at home. Yams are her new favorite. This is her superfood of choice. To me, any vegetable is a superfood, so I do not get the point on concentrating on a few vegetables. One problem that I have though is incorporating more vegetables into the diet, when it is so easy not to. Recently, my morning meal and often my lunch is a simple vegetable dish.
