A simple, delicious vegetable recipe that tastes good with any grilled meat that was marinated in lemon juice. It can be done on your gas grill's side burner so you don't have to run back and forth. My family is perfectly happy with ordinary, yellow, cooking onions, but if you have Vidalias in season it will suit them very well.
This recipe was a side dish at a restraunt we ate at. I ate so much I couldn't finish my salmon. The spinach is not cooked so the flavor is very fresh. Since finding this recipe we have gone through 5 pounds of spinach!! (in 2 weeks)
Some recipes become so much apart of your cooking that you make them on auto-pilot & don't remember they qualify as real recipes. This is 1 of those for me. -- 20 yrs ago when I lived in Tulsa & still played competitive tournament bridge, there was a yrly tourney in Fort Smith, AR that everyone in the area attended. It was held in the VFW hall & the big attraction was the wives of the vets cooked all the food for an appy nite Fri, sweet treats Sat & a big Sun dinner meal. This impossibly easy-to-make & tasty veggie dish was the *star attraction* & favorite of the Sun meal, even for the diehard meat & potato guys. They were very protective of the exact recipe, so this is my well-tested copycat version. (10 min was allowed for ingredient prep, but cooking may vary & was estimated). *Enjoy* !
My great-aunt made this for lunch when I was visiting and I loved it. It was not like anything else I'd had (was only in my 20s at the time) and, fortunately, she willingly shared her recipe. I haven't tried it w/ fresh spinach but I think it would be even better. (Recipe is easily doubled)
EDITED TO ADD: I made this using parmesan cheese for a holiday dinner and loved it. Also left off the bread crumbs and didn't miss them a bit!
Mama used to make this as soon as the fresh corn came in. It is similar to creamed corn in sweetness but the kernels are left whole. A great summertime dish. When my boys whine enough in the winter I will make this with frozen corn.
My daughter despises zucchini, but my husband and I love it, so this is an easy way for us to get our "fix" and it's the perfect amount for the two of us. If I'm baking something else in the oven, I'll just put this in till the meat or whatever is done, then crank up the broiler and top it off in there. And of course, you can use more cheese or anything else you desire.
A south beach friendly way to use any extra your garden is giving, try to pick them when they are less than 3 inches in diameter. Use lo-fat sour cream for phase one, but it tastes good no diet at all!
