Blanching the peppers before stuffing them helps hold their shape and retain their bright color.

7. Baked Tomatoes Stuffed with Lamb and Fresh Herbs

Food & Wine:

Tradition-minded Greek cooks stuff all sorts of vegetables, like eggplant, zucchini, peppers and onions. For the recipe here, look for tomatoes that aren't overly ripe, or they will fall apart while baking.

8. Roasted Green Tomato Basil Soup in Sourdough

Food & Wine:

This beautiful green soup pairs the tartness of green tomatoes with fragrant basil and thyme. Once you've finished off the soup you can eat the sourdough bread bowl.

9. Blood Orange Soufflés
