I got this recipe from "Simple Vegetarian Pleasures" by Jeanne Lemlin. I LOVE asparagus and am always on the lookout for new ways to make it. This is such an easy and elegant way to serve it. The asparagus gets a slightly nutty flavor after roasting, which makes it even more yummy.
After oven roasting asparagus, green beans, cauliflower I thought WHY NOT BROCCOLI. The result is crispy on the outside, tender on the inside and a great new way for me to enjoy one of my favorite veggies. Hope you like it too. The garlic is smashed and diced to get as much garlic flavor as you can from each clove.
My friends and I used to make this for every barbeque when I was growing up. It is an adaptation of a recipe my girlfriend's dad saw on TV. Although I have no idea what that original recipe was, this one tastes soooooooooo good with barbequed anything! It is broccoli so it tastes like broccoli. If you're expecting something else then this recipe won't please you :)
If spinach scares you, this is one recipe that contains spinach that you do not have to be afraid of! It is so delicious that even my picky kids like it. My mother-in-law makes this for get-togethers and she passed the recipe on to me. You can also use Broccoli instead of the Spinach, which she does often, but I have never tried...it is great the way it is! She also eats this hot or cold, but I only like it hot :) Enjoy!
This is a very quick, flavorful and heart-healthy side dish. If you haven't cooked with fresh spinach before you will be amazed at how easy it is to cook and how much better it tastes than frozen or canned. The dish can easily be multiplied, as long as you have a pan big enough to hold the raw spinach.
A shockingly great appetizer or side dish. A friend of mine shared the original recipe with me and I tweaked it. If you like a good grilled steak, this is the perfect side dish and quite easy to prepare.
I had to come up with this quick. Every Thanksgiving my mom serves Green Giant Niblets corn in butter sauce and I promised I would pick it up for her and bring it on Thanksgiving day. When I went to the store, they were sold out! I made this recipe and brought it already prepared to Thanksgiving dinner. Nobody was the wiser! I saved some money too, because I used store brand corn! This recipe makes a lot...you may want to half it.
No idea where I got this recipe... Let me just say that this is outstanding. When my kids were little, many many moons ago, they loved carrots this way and consumed plenty... My grandchildren love them too. A great way to get veggies in the little ones! (Recipe serves two... but I always triple it at least.)
I find it totally amazing, that children and men ALL LOVE THIS RECIPE! As for the Female of our species we just love this for the flavor and the health benefits it brings our families.
Roasted brings out a wonderful sweetness in this dish. The Garlic is roasted to a tan color is creamy good. You can just pop them in your mouth. Or you can spread them on your florets or fresh bread. Just be sure to scoop up some of the rosemary, olive oil and black pepper that may have escaped to the bottom of the dish.
