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
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.

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.
