Celebrate Ontario's abundance of fresh produce (NC) - Ontario features quality produce from Asparagus to Zucchini year round. Try something new simply by changing up the vegetables in your favorite dish: substitute asparagus for green beans or squash cubes for carrots. Expanding your repertoire with vegetables alone can make a significant difference to both the visual presentation of a dish and of course, the taste.
