Vegetable Heroes: Dirt Candy

Aaron Arizpe 5 comments

Chef Amanda Cohen is not a vegetarian herself, but she has been providing for New Yorkers clamoring for chlorophyll and crucifers for years. More

Daily Veg: Roasted Beets at L'Artusi

Carey Jones 3 comments

What is it about roasted beets ($12) and yogurt that works so well together? I find its mouth-coating richness infinitely more appealing than its creamy-tart cousin, goat cheese. More

Daily Veg: Radicchio at Salumeria Rosi

Lauren Sloss 1 comment

A winter special, Salumeria Rosi's braised radicchio manages to capture the rich warmth of a comforting cold-weather dish without being heavy. More

Daily Veg: Green Beans, Carrots and Sunchokes at Fedora

Erin Zimmer 1 comment

As we've surely all learned by now, applying generous amounts of oil and salt to vegetables is usually always a good call. At Fedora they do plenty of that. More

Daily Veg: Sunchokes from Franny's

Come to Franny's for the pizza but don't leave without trying their non-pizza items, like this plate of sunchokes. More

Daily Veg: Roasted Carrots from Fatty Cue

Are you carrots or beef? If you're carrots, then you're very beefy carrots. More

Daily Veg: Okra with Green Papaya at Neerob, the Bronx

Chris E. Crowley Post a comment

At Neerob (reviewed in whole here), fish takes center stage. But not to the neglect of vegetables, which often appear in simpler guises. One of the best is their okra with green papaya ($3), a great gateway dish for those who have been turned off by the vegetable's notorious sliminess. More

Daily Veg: Salads at Radish

Carey Jones 1 comment

I enjoyed the Kale and Clementine ($6) at Radish on a recent visit. More

Daily Veg: Kinpira at Zenkichi

Carey Jones Post a comment

Sometimes the simplest vegetable dishes are the tastiest. And Williamsburg Japanese spot Zenkichi does simple incredibly well. More

Daily Veg: Broccoli with a Soft-Boiled Egg and Stracciatella from Brucie

Erin Zimmer 1 comment

When's the last time you were really, really wowed by a plate of broccoli? Much of the wow factor here has to do with the housemade stracciatella nestled on top, but to be fair to the broccoli, it's roasted until shriveled, sweet, and a deep forest green. More

Daily Veg: Yachaejuk at Bonjuk

Flushing Chris Hansen 3 comments

At Bonjuk in Flushing, the menu is devoted to juk, and although wonderful meat versions are available, the luscious vegetarian yachae juk ($9.95) is no less satisfying for omnivores and vegetarians alike. More

Vegetable Heroes: Buvette

Lauren Sloss 2 comments

In our Daily Veg series, we've been profiling vegetable dishes we love all over the city. But some restaurants do so many vegetable dishes so fantastically that we can't pick just one. So we're inducting them into our "Vegetable Heroes" hall of fame. First up? Buvette. More

Daily Veg: Beet Salad at The Dutch

Erin Zimmer Post a comment

This salad ($14) could really win a Miss Beet Salad pageant. Fork up the watermelon-resembling hunks of candystripe beets and the darker, sweeter red beets. They're all lined in a row, mingling with sunflower seeds and sitting on a cool yogurt packed with fresh herbs like dill and chives. More

Daily Veg: Wok-Fried Kangkong at Fatty Crab

Carey Jones 4 comments

A common complaint about the food of another nation, when cooked in America, is that it's not gutsy enough. Not as spicy or fish-sauce-y or buttery or Sichuan peppercorn-ed or smoky or sour as in its home country. Luckily, that's not a malady that afflicts the Wok-Fried Kangkong ($12) at Fatty Crab. More

Daily Veg: Kale Salad at Chuko

Carey Jones Post a comment

I'm a lover of kale whatever the form, but the kale salad ($7) at Chuko in Prospect Heights is truly remarkable. More

Daily Veg: Kale Salad at Northern Spy

Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

I'm a little obsessed with Northern Spy's kale salad ($12), made with raw lacinato kale, crumbled Cabot clothbound cheddar, roasted squash, toasted almonds, and pecorino. More

Daily Veg: Minted Sugar Snap Peas from The Smile

Carey Jones Post a comment

If you've ever wanted your sugar snap peas to taste more like potato chips, Minted Sugar Snap Peas ($6)* from The Smile are the snack for you. More

Daily Veg: Shira-ae from Hibino

Erin Zimmer Post a comment

The Shira-ae ($5) under Hibino's "tofu" section of the menu looks like a big mass of green, which it is, but it's a little more nuanced than that. The chefs at this cozy, Kyoto-style Japanese corner spot simmer the greens in a dashi broth just long enough for the veggies to absorb its light, clean flavor while remaining crisp. More

Daily Veg: Beet Salad from Colonie

Erin Zimmer Post a comment

You almost expect to see a beet salad on every menu these days, but this one's unlike any other you've met. Forget the predictable goat cheese and walnuts. These roasted beet wedges are carefully layered with paper thin, shattery shreds of cocoa tuile. Chocolate and beets together? And you get to call it a salad? The sweet, earthy beets actually work really with the delicate, slightly bitter cocoa sheets. More

Daily Veg: Crispy Chinese Watercress Salad at Sripraphai

Sara Markel-Gonzalez 1 comment

There are two Crispy Chinese Watercress Salads on the menu at Sripraphai in Woodside. I'm not saying that A-6, the salad on the regular menu, piled high with shrimp, chicken and squid isn't a great choice; but VA-2, Crispy Chinese Watercress Salad on the special vegetarian menu ($9.50) is even better, and it's a dish that I order again and again.
