Fresh Vegetables Are Back

Chef Jamie loves helping people prepare great meals, especially as seasonal produce arrives at markets, and knows the challenge and rewards of trying a dish a new way.  Chef Jamie advises taking a leap outside of your traditional meal and try adding something new.

Quick Hit Vegetable Ideas

  • If you tend to use the same recipe repertoire every week, substitute an in-season vegetable for the traditional broccoli you always make.
  • Experiment with asparagus, try something new with snap peas or pick a new potato variety. A simple substitution like that can really make a difference.

Four Fast Ways to Incorporate Fresh Produce in Every Meal

  1. Set out raw vegetables with salsa dips.
  2. Chop up a big, beautiful salad with a flavorful vinaigrette.
  3. Make simple sautés and stir-fries with your favorite sauce.
  4. Add the best local in-season fresh vegetables to breakfast omelets or frittatas.

We hope you’ll join us on our food adventures and adding the zest of LA VICTORIA® salsa and sauces to your meals.
