Some New Year's resolutions are don'ts: Don't drink. Don't eat dessert. Don't procrastinate. But we're much fonder of positive resolutions. And here's a particularly fun one: eat more vegetables.
Because vegetables are more than just virtuous. In the right hands, they're downright delicious, whether roasted or grilled or pickled or fried. Some of our favorites may be out of season at the moment, but the city is full of brussels sprouts and mushrooms and cauliflower just waiting to be eaten. And while meat and seafood may earn the most attention at a given restaurant, we often find the vegetable sides to be just as good.
So we're declaring January Vegetable Month on Serious Eats: New York. All month, we'll be introducing you to excellent veggie dishes around the city, along with roundups of our very favorites and quite a bit more. They won't all be vegetarian; a little bacon or shrimp paste or anchovy can do marvelous things. But they do all put vegetables in the starring role.
Are there any vegetable dishes you love? Let us know!
