Roasted Swiss Chard with Feta

Rating: Unrated
229
This method of cooking chard was given to me (in very few words) from an organic farmer who was selling the first chard we ever bought. We tried it and could not believe how delicious this was. Delicious! Double this recipe if you are a large family of veggie eaters.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

A new recipe a neighbor gave us. What a hit with my family. Just the right mixture of garlic and cashews with our favorite side dish, broccoli. And, so very easy to make!! If in a pinch, you could probably use frozen broccoli too, but I haven't tried.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Rating: Unrated

This recipe is from my mother. It may sound strange, but these are really good and very easy to make. The Brussels sprouts should be brown with a bit of black on the outside when done. Any leftovers can be reheated or even just eaten cold from the fridge. I don't know how, but they taste sweet and salty at the same time!

A casserole dish of seasonal vegetables that is so easy to prepare. It can be made a day ahead - just reheat before serving. Lemon juice can be substituted for balsamic vinegar, and you can use baking potatoes if you don't have any Yukon Golds on hand.

Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

This recipe is so easy and healthy. I love mashed potatoes, and when I started the South Beach Diet® and couldn't have them, I had to find an alternative. This is an awesome alternative, and people who hate vegetables love it. I do recommend using a large food processor for this recipe.

Spicy Bok Choy in Garlic Sauce

Rating: Unrated

Bok Choy is one of my favorite vegetables. It has its own spiciness that is complimented by the sweetness of the sauce in this recipe. I like to serve this with grilled shrimp and steamed rice. For variety, I sometimes add a small amount of lemon zest just before serving.
