Enjoying summer produce is one of life’s simple pleasures. From big bunches of Swiss chard to baskets full of juicy heirloom tomatoes, aromatic peaches to bundles of crisp red radishes, snappy pods of peas, and the first of the year’s glowing chanterelles—it would be a shame not to take advantage of what nature has to offer us, so this month, we’re doing just that with our Big Veggie Summer Issue packed with plant-based recipes.

In collaboration with Garden Gourmet, we’re on a mission this month to show you all the ways to enjoy the bounty of the season with a colorful variety of vegetables and plant-based products. But this isn’t just because we love veg-forward eating and want to promote sustainable cooking and eating to do our part in protecting the planet. In a recent poll of our community, we asked, “Which ingredient would you like to see more recipes with?” The answer? Over one-third of you chose, you guessed it, “Vegetables!”
