Veggie Bliss on Kelsey's Essentials

Related To:
Today on Kelsey's Essentials, it's all about celebrating vegetables. Don't get Kelsey Nixon wrong: She loves a good steak as much as the next person. But with so many fresh, seasonal vegetables available at the market, why not build a summer dinner around them?

Kelsey digs into her family archive for the first recipe of the show, a ridiculously delicious Ratatouille Tart With Caramelized Onion-Tomato Jam.

Then it's on to her version of an Italian bread salad, Smoky Panzanella With Market Vegetables. It's the perfect dish to play around with; work in whatever vegetables look the best at your market.

And for her last dish, she turns creamy corn into the base for a pan-seared Pacific cod. This light, summery meal gets topped off with a cilantro vinaigrette.

Tune in to Kelsey's Essentials today at 2:30 p.m. ET to learn Kelsey's tricks and tips for making these veggie-heavy recipes.
