To celebrate the launch of our new app, James Beard Foundation Vegetables, which features an array of stunning and innovative vegetable recipes by Beard Award–winning chefs like Thomas Keller, Alice Waters, and Daniel Boulud, we're highlighting some of the restaurant-quality, veg-focused dishes that have become our fall standbys:

Roasted Baby Root Vegetables with Grilled Bread, Fall Greens, and Bagna Cauda Dressing

Bagna cauda, a traditional Italian dipping sauce made with garlic and anchovies, is transformed into a boldly flavored vinaigrette in this gorgeous dish.

Fried Brussels Sprouts with Thyme, Lemon, and Chile Flakes

These crisp, deep-fried Brussels sprouts tossed with lemon juice and herbs just might be better than potato chips.

Pan-Roasted Cauliflower Steaks with Tomatoes and Capers

Don't waste those cauliflower stalks! Instead cut thick cross-sections, sear until golden brown, and top with wilted cauliflower leaves, burst cherry tomatoes, and salty capers.

Chilled Young Carrot Soup with Clotted Cream, Pistachios, and Mint

Homemade clotted cream is easy to make and takes this nuanced soup to a whole new level, but storebought crème fraîche can be used in a pinch.
