Balsamic Pea Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 142
I quickly make this the night before I need it as it tastes much better if it sits overnight. My daughter and her friend will not eat peas, but they love this salad.

I had always been indifferent to green beans until my friend gave me this recipe for green beans with sesame seeds. You will be surprised at how much flavor this has for such a simple dish! Broccoli is equally delicious prepared this way.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 650
This is an adaptation of an old Armenian recipe, and this variation is so delicious I can't stop eating it. It's a great way to stretch expensive seasonal asparagus and pricey cashews. It's great as a side dish or as a vegetarian entree.

This spiced cabbage, potato, and veggie dish is perfect for potlucks.

Garlicky Quinoa and Garbanzo Bean Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 175
This dish is a meal in itself-- it contains a good fat (olive oil), green vegetables (broccoli), a whole grain (quinoa), and a protein source (garbanzo beans)! It's also vegan. I usually have this for breakfast or lunch.
