How Many Vegetables
- How many fresh vegetables do you regularly use?
- How may frozen vegetables do you use?
I buy these every week. They are always in my refrigerator. They are used in everday recipes. Vegetables are primarily used for flavor. They make the base of soups (vegetable soup, tomato soup, split pea soup) and sauces (marinara sauce). Sometimes feature vegetable side dishes (steamed spinach, Chinese stir fry vegetables). Sometimes salads.
I buy these every couple of weeks for specific recipes (sauerkraut, root salad, white sauce, pumpkin squares).
Keep these on hand for soups, stews, flavored rice and fillings (vegetable soup, Spanish or Mexican rice, tamale filling, samosa filling).

These are moderate energy staple foods, principally starch. I don’t consider them vegetables because of their use as staple foods.
