Spanish-Style Quinoa

Rating: 4.5 stars 219
This quinoa dish is a delicious and higher protein alternative to Spanish rice. This is a nice side dish to a Mexican meal, or it can be used as a filling in burritos. I like my food on the less-salty side, so you may have to adjust the seasonings to your taste.

Fasoliyyeh Bi Z-Zayt (Syrian Green Beans with Olive Oil)

Rating: 4.5 stars 258
I learned how to make this while visiting my husband's family in Syria. It can be a healthy, fast, easy vegetarian/vegan main dish for lunch or dinner that is surprisingly filling when eaten with pita bread, or it can be a flavorful side dish.

Cuban Black Beans II

Rating: 4.5 stars 192
A Cuban lady down the street made these every Wednesday...wonderful stuff! She served the beans over a bowl of hot rice, and garnished them with salsa, a little sour cream, and shredded cheese. It was also good without the dairy products. Can substitute canned, rinsed beans to cut cooking time.

Summer Squash Casserole with Nuts

Rating: 4.5 stars 129
This is a recipe that my Southern mother-in-law gave to me, her Yankee daughter-in-law! Zucchini or yellow summer squash may be used together, or interchangeably to create this delicious casserole! Use bread crumbs, crushed crackers or cheese for the topping.
