Delicata squash, carrots and green beans with roasted garlic sauce

It doesn’t really matter what vegetables you roast up for this dish. I went with what looked good at the farmers market and what I thought would look pretty on a plate.

I might have said goodbye to tomatoes in this recent post, but I snagged a few last fruits from my scraggly plants.

This salad was a pleasant summer's end surprise.

Chopped green beans and cherry tomatoes with ginger-shallot dressing

It’s the end of tomato season in New England. I type this while picturing the tomato plants still standing in my garden: The stalks are brown and puckered; the few remaining fruits are speckled and dry looking; they need to be ripped out of their beds. So I nearly pounced on a $2 bag of tiny, multi-colored cherry tomatoes this weekend at the farmers market. They may be the last of the year! Sliced in half with a pile of chopped fresh green beans, and drizzled with gingery shallot vinaigrette — this is how I’m saying so long to my favorite summer snack.

Chickpea, quinoa and feta salad with dill

The original recipe called for barley, not quinoa, but I was aiming to use what I already had in the pantry. You could also probably use rice or another available grain.
