Browned Butter Vegetables with Almonds

Rating: 4.5 stars 151
I don't quite know what happens when butter just starts to brown, but it takes on a wonderful 'nutty' aroma. Once the butter starts to simmer, watch very closely to make sure it doesn't burn. My husband loves vegetables cooked this way. I have used many different types of fresh vegetables and this seems to work with most any vegetable. (This recipe is for 1 1/2 pounds vegetables.)

Byrdhouse Mushroom Barley Pilaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 126
This is a cozy, savory side dish. I sometimes brown chicken breasts and throw them on top of the pilaf for the last 20 minutes of cooking time. Enjoy!

Cheesy Polenta

Rating: 4.5 stars 310
This versatile side dish would work great along with pork, chicken, beef or fish. The trick is to slowly add the cornmeal and whisk constantly to avoid lumps.

Stewed Cabbage

This is a family favorite that my mother-in-law fixed for me while I was visiting her home last year. Serve over white rice, if desired.

Onion Barley Casserole

Rating: 4.5 stars 33
MY HUSBAND and I grew up on plain hearty foods, and we both learned early on that simple food, well prepared, maintains good health. I always felt I was giving my family the best when I prepared this dish. They loved the nutty flavor and chewy texture of the barley, and it was a delicious departure from rice as a side dish. --Elaine Kremenak Grants Pass, Oregon
