Lemon Tabouli

Rating: 4 stars 25
A large bag of lemons, and the mint right outside the kitchen door inspired me to create this dish.

Black Bean and Corn Salad I

Rating: 4.5 stars 212
This bright, simple salad is a great pot luck dish, or a great main dish served with tortillas or cornbread. Depending on your family's tastes, red peppers can be all sweet bell peppers, or can be a combination of sweet and hot peppers. Keeps well for several days.

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.

Baked Fennel with Parmesan

Rating: 4.5 stars 95
A very simple but totally delicious dish. Fennel is baked with cream, creme fraiche and parmesan cheese. An ideal accompaniment to many tomato based italian dishes as the creaminess balances nicely with the tomato.

Bubble and Squeak

Rating: 4.5 stars 211
Cabbage, bacon, ham, and leftover potatoes make up this tasty, easy dish.

Roasted Grapes and Carrots

Rating: 3.5 stars 51
This is an Indian dish I had while visiting a French family in the Luberon Valley. So I guess it's a French-Indian side dish. I love it and make it all the time.
