GC picked up some beautiful red onions at the market. We grilled with olive oil and topped with a generous spoonful of fresh sage pesto. This was a really lovely side dish.

Vegetables with Nobu-Style Saikyo Miso
Tonight I served grilled eggplant and roasted vegetables with a savory-sweet miso sauce that I made from a recipe from Nobu’s Vegetarian Cookbook. I couldn’t find the white miso (shiromiso), a sweet miso that is often used in Kyoto, Japan, so I used regular miso sweetened with a little sugar.
Caramelized Brussels Sprouts
Brussels sprouts are in season September through March. I love this simple recipe.
Sweet Potatoes with Bourbon and Maple
This is my new favorite way to prepare sweet potatoes. This recipe comes from the November 2012 issue of Bon Appétit. I’ve simply adapted some of the proportions.
Sautéed Peppers and Arugula
I often sauté Padrón peppers as a quick side dish, but tonight I used a bunch of sweet peppers that I found at my neighborhood farmers’ market. Sweet peppers rank high on the Environmental Working Group’s Pesticides in Produce List, meaning high levels of pesticide residues are commonly found on them. Definitely good to choose organic!
