Tuscan cuisine is very well known for its beautiful fish and meat dishes but also for a great variety of vegetable dishes .We usually eat vegetables which are in season and in winter time we prefer vegetables which have been cooked ,baked or stewed so the dish results nice to warm up our days.In Summer fresh, raw vegetables are probably the first choice, with nice light dressing and interesting way of mixing them.Just talking about some of the possible cooked vegatbles you could try in Tuscany.
