Veggies (And Wine!) For Dinner

There’s something about spring that makes our ears perk up for plant-forward meals. Plant right here for vegetable-focused snack and dinner ideas to enjoy — plus, some fresh wine picks, right from the vine!

We’re loving these Sweet Corn Fritters with Tomato Salsa and Avocado [above] from Madeleine Shaw‘s new cookbook A Year of Beautiful Eating. May as well celebrate with a little seasonal Rosé: we love this $8 bottle (!!), Faisão Vinho Rosé at H-E-B. More details here.

Clementine’s Mushroom Salad

Even folks who aren’t mega fans of mushrooms will love the White Mushroom Salad from Clementine in San Antonio. It’s an easy, but elegant dish that works well as a side salad or lunch.

A stunning salad deserves an equally stunning wine. Sip the Silk Oak Sauvignon Blanc — a wine steal for just $12 at H-E-B. More details on this wine right here.

Pondicheri’s Kerala Vegetable Stew

Pondicheri’s Kerala Vegetable Stew is a simple vegetable dish you can whip up in about 30 minutes. Our friend Anita Jaisinghani is a culinary wizard in many areas, but her vegetable-focused meals are a treasure. Be sure to check out her brand new website, India 1948, as well as our feature on her amazing restaurants in Houston and New York City.

Katz’s Hummus & Feta Dips

We’re going absolutely crazy for this creamy hummus and feta dip duo from Katz’s Deli in Houston. You’ll be licking the bowl it’s so good — and good for you! Make the Feta and Hummus Dip Duo for movie night or to pack in your lunch.

Celebrate your healthy habits with a wine that’s fit-focused: the FitVine Sauvignon Blanc from H-E-B. It’s just 90 calories for a 5-ounce pour and contains less than a gram of sugar. You can find it under $15 at H-E-B and learn more about it, plus, my tips for drinking wine on a diet right here.
