I'm cooking a bone-in pork loin with sausage-apple stuffing for guests for dinner (yes, I realize it's much more of a fall dish, but fortunately it's fairly cool today in the Boston area), but am not feeling inspired by my usual vegetable fall-backs. Any suggestions? Thanks!
sauteed green beans and scallions with lemon juice and dill
roasted potatoes, fennel and garlic
A sautee of sliced peppers of a variety of colors with chopped onions, minced garlic, salt and ground pepper, red pepper flakes. Perhaps a sprinkle or two of fresh thyme, marjoram, and or basil.
Roasted vegetables combination of any sort: fingerlings with quartered red onions; sliced Yukon golds with sweet potatoes....that sort of thing.
Plus a nice fresh garden salad with a homemade vinaigrette. Buon appetito!
I just made a pork loin myself last week and I am in Boston as well. If you have access to any of the farmer's markets these days, I would definitely stop by. Last week I was able to pick up some great pole green beans and fingerling potatoes. Small patty pan squash and zucchini are also pretty abundant and tasty as well as a salad made from heirloom tomatoes. If I miss the market I also like to pick up baby veggies from Whole Foods (the carrots or the baby zucchini) and do something like this.
Kale or swiss chard sauteed with garlic,onions and smoked paprika
Roasted winter squash - saw some at the Marblehead Farmers' Market on Sat.
Roasted beets at room temp tossed with sherry vinegar, dill and olive oil
