You just can't beat fresh vegetables! Sometimes, we have to be creative to get others to eat this food group. I have several recipes that utilize canned soup or cheese. Whatever your choice, don't forget to eat your veggies!
I recently had a back log of Southern Living Magazines waiting for me to go through. When I came across this pasta recipe, I just knew it was one I couldn't let get away without trying. I am posting it here so I will always know where to find it! This dish makes a great main course or side dish. I prepared this dish as soon as I had all the ingredients on hand and I have to say, it is as delicious as it sounds! This is a very easy recipe to add your desired amount of chicken or shrimp, if you like. I hope you think it looks as tempting as I did ; )!
If your family is sitting on the fence about spinach, you will want to give this recipe a try! This casserole will melt in your mouth and will convince your family that spinach should be served much more often! This is a "Company Worthy" recipe that will satisfy the most discriminating. Hope you enjoy it!
From a Cranberry Cookbook put out by the Westport-Grayland Washington Chamber of Commerce. (The Cranberry Coast)
NOTE: Everyone said this made too much filling for 1 squash, so I changed the recipe to 2 squashes, to serve 4. Easy to halve for 2 servings.
Microwave instructions included at end of regular instructions.
I live in the Midwest and I am convinced that there is NO better way to eat fresh summer sweet corn!
The trick is not to soak it! If you soak the corn the result will be steamed and not truly "roasted". The husks may get a little burned but the corn will be perfect. (I know, it was hard for me the first time too, just trust me)
P.S. Use the freshest sweet corn you can get!
This has been a staple side dish at every holiday meal for my whole life and I could not believe that it had not been reproduced on Recipezaar! I usually take the leftovers home and eat it by the bowl! NOTE This is a recipe that I do by taste so do not feel confined by these measurements i.e. add more squash for leftovers, if you want it cheesier add more cheese, you can't go wrong. Also, I use 1 bag of Pre-Shredded Mexican Cheese Mix, but any mild cheese (Mild Cheddar, Jack, American) should work.
We really like these green beans at TRH and after a little searching found this recipe. Recipe is courtesy of WTVR, Richmond, VA. When a friend of mine started working there, I asked if this is how they prepare their green beans and she shook her head yes, but said no with a smile. I have included both variations for this recipe; choose the one to your liking. Cook/simmer time is approximate.
WE grew a small white Mohican eggplant this year. They are about 6 inches long. This is an easy, healthy, and very tasty way to prepare them. Panko is a form of breadcrumb. The bottom of the eggplant comes out crispy and dark brown the top is lightly toasted. Try it with standard eggplant let me know how it was.
This is a complimentary dish served by a local upscale restaurant. They serve it before you receive your salad along with a dish of fresh vegtable sticks and olives. I can make a meal on just on the veggies and this bean salad. (Prep time does not include the overnight chilling).
Since there are already 411 recipes for broccoli casserole posted to "ZAAR" ,I decided to call this one #412 Broccoli Casserole.I don't think there are any like this one in the database. I based this one on the famous "Green Bean Casserole" from Campbell's Soup. But I think mine is better since I don't like cream of mushroom soup.Submitted to "ZAAR" on May 28th,2008
I've gotten 8 year old boys to eat this and ask for seconds. They never knew they were eating broccoli and I didn't tell them. I adore this dish. Normally I cook with olive oil but the butter in this sauce should not be substituted. It will serve 4 as a side dish or 2 as a main course. The original recipe comes from Rozanne Gold, a favorite cookbook author.
This is a delicious butternut squash recipe from Ina Garten / The Barefoot Contessa. We really enjoy this during the holidays. It is best when the squash is cut in medium to large chunks so that the outside gets a maple-flavored crust, and the inside stays soft and delicious.
