I sometimes look askance at people who complain about the glut of beautiful end-of-summer produce and fruit — what on earth to do with it? My immediate reaction is to just eat it. Eat it all. Enjoy it because we can't in January or February or March.
But in all honesty, at times I'm one of those people, too. It can be difficult in August to use up all your vegetables and ripening fruit before they go bad. So in our house, a recent solution comes in the form of these delicious vegetable-stuffed whole wheat empanadas.
