This quinoa is flavored with aromatic Mediterranean and Indian spices for a quick and delicious side dish.
Summer Tomato Pie
This is a simple but delicious side dish. It could also be a main course for a vegetarian. It's great for using all those wonderful summer tomatoes from the garden! You can change the cheeses to fit your taste as well as the seasoning. Blue cheese and fennel, Swiss cheese and thyme, Gouda and dill, whatever your favorites are.
Baked Stuffed Winter Squash
Winter squash (acorn, kabocha, butternut) is baked, scooped out, and mixed with other ingredients, then stuffed back into the rind and baked. This dish has it all -- veggies, meat, and a natural sweetness and creamy consistency without any added sugar. I use pork sausage but you can substitute something lower in fat.
Fresh Green Beans, Fennel, and Feta Cheese
Fresh green beans and fresh fennel cooked until crisp-tender are then briefly sauteed in extra-virgin olive oil, along with fresh basil and crumbled feta cheese.
Savory Summer Squash with Bacon
I love squash but wanted a new recipe with fewer calories. I did a search on flavorful ingredients and came up with a bunch of pasta recipes. So I thought, why not substitute yellow squash for pasta? And it worked! All the ingredients can be prepared in advance and refrigerated until ready to cook. Long, slender young squash make for the best texture.
'Chinese Buffet' Green Beans
Green beans sautéed with garlic and tossed with a sweet and savory sauce.
Pan-Fried Asparagus with Onions
Everyone that I make this sautéed asparagus with onions for absolutely loves it! The onions are a great flavor contrast to the asparagus. This vegetable dish pairs as a great side with everything... fish, meat, chicken, or pasta.
Roasted Sriracha Cheese Cauliflower Bites
Roasted cauliflower topped with melted cheese, sriracha sauce, and green onions makes a perfect afternoon snack or even a main meal side dish. This pairs well with a glass of chilled milk.
