While spring cleaning I came across an old cookbook, Cordon Bleu Minibooks Vegetable Cooking published in 1971. This recipe was a favourite. I haven't made this recipe in many years so the cooking time is a guess.
This can be a side dish for 8 or a vegetarian main dish for 4.
I have been making this recipe for more than 25 years. It is easy-to-make and very colourful. Serve it cold, warm or at room temperature -- I prefer at room temp. It's a great make-ahead recipe because it keeps well for several days in the fridge. Adapted from a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.
These are great used as a topping for a green tossed salad. One way of getting another vegetable into your diet!! I like to use the orange coloured ones for these but I have also used the golden and the ordinary purple skinned ones if I haven't been able to find them. This recipe comes from my youngest daughter who added these to our salads when were visiting. I just had to keep making them on our return home and have posted it here so I don't forget what to do!!!!
This serves about twelve people, but can easily be cut in half for a smaller group. This is truly delicious, one of my favorites. It is really quite healthy, looks lovely on a buffet table. It is also good for pot lucks
This is what I like to do year round. It is so easy to do, and it only requires a few main ingredients. Edited Note: After much consideration, I have decided to change the measurements. I know this would be the second time, but I feel that the new measurements best reflects my the recipe. Again, if you would like to increase or decrease anything, it is up to you, and I welcome all of your suggestions.
We're not big cauliflower eaters, but sometimes on chilly winter evenings this hits the spot. This recipe is flexible; lite sour cream is fine. No nutmeg is fine. Sometimes we add a little milk to make a thinner sauce an on occasion paprika is sprinkled over it prior to baking.
My good friend Bev cooked this one day at a friends place. She had never been a spinach fan. Whole new way to look at the old "silver beet" which is a brother to the more insipid English spinach. Can be a breakfast dish with a few eggs, luncheon with a sprinkle of cheese, or side dish. Anything a little different is nice for a change :)
