Broccoli has gotten a bad rap in the diet world. People are just so sick of eating steamed broccoli. Instead of steaming, roast it with some garlic and Parmesan, which give it a new life and take eating it from a chore to a delight. From The Most Decadent Diet Ever cookbook by Devin Alexander, author of The Biggest Loser Cookbook.
This is recipe #3 from *Microwave Cooking* by Lorna Rhodes & gets high marks from me because I love the primary ingredients & due to its versatility. It would make a great finger-food appy, starter course or tasty side when served w/beef or chicken. *Enjoy* !
Oh my, this is sooo good. My husband and I both LOVE this. We eat this until we just can't eat any more! If you love chunky stewed tomatoes, garlic and onions...this is for you. The bonus is it's really easy to make. We make it as a side dish but this would be a great main dish for your favorite vegetarian.
We like cabbage & for some time I've been eyeing Sue L's tempting Recipe #305021. Thanks to this so easy-to-fix recipe found in the *Carnival Creations* cookbook by Cyrus Marfatia (Exec Chef of Carnival Cruise Lines), I tried a similar version that was served as a side-dish to an orange-glazed Hunan filet of beef -- an unusual combo but I surprisingly found the cabbage more appealing & expect it would work well w/a variety of entrees. (Times were estimated & 10 min allowed for ingredient prep) I hope you enjoy it as I did. :-)
I adapted this recipe from a book called Cookbook of Foods from Bible Days.
The original uses frozen beans and red wine vinegar, and you can, too, if you'd like. It also calls for boiling the beans, but I prefer them steamed. I also leave the pimientos out occasionally.
If you want to use dried dill, use 1 teaspoon.
This is so delicious you'd never guess it's low-fat. I tweaked a Weight Watchers recipe to suit my own tastes and it's become a favorite of ours! The sesame oil and cilantro add to it's distinctive taste.
