Second, Michael Pollan, the author of the incredible Omnivore's Dilemma, has a great article in this week's New York Times Magazine (also visible here if you don't have an NYT account). In short, his advice is: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." He also mention that Thomas Jefferson advised treating meat more as a flavoring than a food, which is interesting because that's frequently been how I've approached meat in my diet; not as a main course, but as a garnish.
The article makes me want to come up with a bunch of new and interesting ways to eat vegetables, beyond my one vegetable curry, my vegetarian chili, my all-purpose vegetable pasta sauce, and pasta e fagiole. I mean, just because I don't like eggplant or asparagus or mushrooms or olives (etc. etc.) doesn't mean there aren't a lot of good vegetable recipes I can and should be eating.
What am I missing out on? What should I try? If I want to do a vegetable main dish that's not all about grain (or pasta), what would you recommend?
