Salty and savory, the roasting method kills the natural bitterness of asparagus. Try it next to grilled fish or lamb.
Green Risotto with Fava Beans
I can't stress enough how much better this is if it is stirred constantly. If one arm gets tired, switch arms. Taste the rice for doneness before serving. Nothing worse than a plate of crunchy risotto. Try it, and you will find it is well worth it!
Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus
My husband taught me this elegant yet easy side dish! Always a hit at the holidays, and dresses up every day chicken.
Chef John's Colcannon
Colcannon is probably my favorite St. Patrick's Day recipe. It combines the lovely, spring-is-finally-here-greenness of kale and leeks with the always alluring comfort of buttery mashed potatoes.
Roasted Vegetable Medley
This colorful dish has the perfect blend of sweet and savory. It is simple to prepare and can be served as a side dish, salad, or light meal. Feel free to substitute whatever veggies and herbs you have on hand.
These flavorful artichokes with their butter, garlic and shallot taste are sure to please any artichoke fan. I especially like the smokey flavor the grill adds.
Creamed Peas and New Potatoes
Just a recipe a local farmer suggested to me to use with his potatoes and peas. I slightly modified it and it's very tasty.
Radishes are typically forgotten as a snack food in the U.S., instead being relegated to being diced up for salads. I recently went to Mexico, where radishes (and peppers) are served as frequently as french fries are in the U.S., and I think it's a lovely food tradition. So here's to a radish revival!
Mushy Peas I
Mushy Peas are a great side dish with fried cod or salmon. Note: You can add more liquid (water or cream) depending how mushy you want your peas. Use low fat milk if you're calorie-conscious.
Instant Pot® Steamed Artichokes
Cook these quick, easy, and foolproof steamed artichokes in just minutes in your Instant Pot®! Artichokes are tender and perfect for any vegan meal.
Persian Sabzi Polo (Herb Rice with Fava Beans)
This is a Persian dish which I often make for my husband. It will taste much better if you use fresh herbs. It also goes very well with either fish or chicken. Hope you like it.
