Your mother was right--eat your vegetables, they're good for you! And if they're tucked beneath a blanket of cheese or swimming in a bath of melted butter, I imagine they're even better than she'd promised.
This is a recipe from oprah.com! (says created by Art Smith, so that's where the credit goes!)...sounds tasty! This would make a great veggie side dish. (I think you could vary this by adding sweet potatoes, asparagus, broccoli, etc...experiment!)
This simple dish has a lot going for it: fresh green beans, toasted nuts, and the salty goodness of fresh parmesan slivers. It's very easy, yet looks stunning with the parmesan shards -- and it will definitely impress your guests.
This is a highly rated recipe from Paula Deen of the Food Channel and worth making! I have tweaked it slightly and doubled the complete amounts to suit our tastes --- Paula has a house seasoning blend mix which is 1/2 cup salt mixed with 2 tablespoons black pepper and 2 tablespoons garlic powder, she uses a small amount in this casserole, you have the option of omitting the fresh garlic and adding it in, store the remaining mix in an air tight container for up to 6 months, I strongly recommend using low-sodium cream of mushroom soup
These are a family-favorite they fry up light and so fluffy, a must drizzled pancake or maple syrup on top, servings is only estimated it will depend on how much the batter you drop from the spoon --- these can also be made in a deep-fryer with oil heated to 365°F :)
I'm used to eating cauliflower raw, steamed or pureed. I love cauliflower and will eat it any way it is prepared. But this method makes cauliflower so palatable to any but the most ardent anti-veggie. I hope this will change your mind!
This recipe from Cooking Light is the perfect healthy twist on one of my favorite southern side dishes. Now I can get my "fix" without the added oil. The Fresh Tomato Gravy (1/3 cup per serving) can also be used on baked chicken, pork or fish.
I got this recipe from my mother who happens to live in a retirement facility in Atlanta, GA. When she served it to me, I knew I had found the best way to serve one of my favorite vegetables. I can eat this dish until I can't move.
This was so good I couldn't resit posting it. It was on a little ticket attached to the asparagus I bought, grown in Mexico. Quite different and quite delicious!! I tweeked it to suit our tastes. (One hour chill time not included in cook time)
