I’ve have been so focused on some of my other projects I have not been cooking as much lately. However, a couple days ago my BFF emailed me asking for some advice about a recipe and was worried about paired the wrong cheese with any given vegetable. And that’s something I’ve had concerns about over the years too.
So I pulled together a list of common cheeses and what kind of vegetable I’ve consistently successfully paired them with:
Feta: Spinach, kale, onions, sweet potato, mushrooms, zucchini
Blue cheese: butternut squash, bitter/more intense greens, portbello mushrooms
Cheddar: broccoli, onion, cauliflower, tomato
Fontina (the kind at Trader Joes): Asparagus, eggplant
Parmesan: basically everything
Goat cheese: pretty much everything, although not always ideal for baking
I hope you found this little table (illustrated by some of my recipes from this blog) helpful if/when you’re pulling together a new recipe. Let me know if you have any cheese/veggie pairings I missed that you think are awesome! Song of the Week: La La La/Bang Bang mashup from Penn Masala. This is a super fun mashup by one of my favorite a capella groups. It’s fun and super pop-y and I’ve been listing to it a lot when doing tedious stuff at work.
