I asked for it, and I got it: 23 of the most delectably enticing dishes featuring vegetables. From asparagus to zucchini, these recipes prove that vegetables can be as romantic as chocolate truffles and champagne (though I’m not saying that your Valentine’s dinner can’t have all three!)
All the wonderful entries are listed below in the order in which they were sent to me. These bloggers have worked hard to come up with new, creative recipes, so please visit their blogs to see the amazing dishes they’ve created. Then, once you’ve checked them all out, I hope you’ll come back and vote for the one you would like to see win the contest. The one with the most votes will receive a copy of Nava Atlas’ new cookbook, Vegan Express, which is currently ranked #7 #6 on Amazon’s list of vegan cookbooks, even though it won’t be officially released until tomorrow.
But wait! Everyone who votes will be entered into a random drawing to win another copy of Vegan Express. See the end of this post for details.
Without further ado, our gorgeous entries:

The poll and the comments will close at 6 pm Central time tomorrow night (Feb. 12.) Please, one entry per person. Anonymous posters please include your initials or enough identifying information so that I can tell who the winner is.

Thank you to everyone who entered. Everything looks so delicious that I’m glad that I’m not having to pick a winner!
