I love okra but I don't like the slipperiness of it in several recipes. In this recipe, I pan-fry the okra first to seal the surface before adding it to liquids, which is when it seems to release its sliminess.
My favorite way to eat artichokes is the simplest. I gave the recipe for two, because I like to sit and eat one with my sister. However, adjust the recipe for however many you want to make. I use pepper but not salt to season, but of course you can use salt if you prefer a saltier taste.
There are intriguing flavor combinations of this Thai cuisine dish. The mild zucchini is a perfect partner for the stronger flavors in this dish. Compliments of Above & Beyond Parsley, Kansas City, Missouri.
This is good and very pretty. The cauliflower turns a lovely yellow color. Be generous with the spices and use lots of garlic! Don’t use frozen spinach for this one. This recipe is meant to be served as a side dish or as one of many dishes in the typical Indian style.
Another spartan vegetable side that we make at home, but this one's always been my favourite and is the reason why I love french beans! Once when I was a kid, I sat on my kitchen platform and ate the entire 4 servings of this dish that my mom made, while she was cooking the rest of dinner!
If you can't get fresh nopales, you can substitute a 12 - 15 ounce jar of the cactus pieces, drained. If you can't find Mexican queso fresco, you can substitue feta cheese--but the feta may be saltier than the queso so adjust your seasoning.
