This makes a great side dish with chicken or fish, the dried chili flakes are only optional I like to add in for a little heat you may omit if desired, use a good quality chicken broth for this, make certain to saute the orzo until just lightly browned it really improves the flavor of this dish! ;)
Tired of mashed, baked and fried potatoes? Well I was. This recipe came to me through experimentation. I have taken this side dish to pot-lucks, various outings, and picnics and I am always asked for the recipe. Excellent side dish and VERY EASY to make. Hope you enjoy it too!
Whipping up this savory pie is a cinch when you keep frozen puff pastry on hand. Remember to use a very sharp knife to cut the pastry - if the edges of the dough are pressed together, it won't rise evenly.
My husband clipped this recipe from a magazine about 7 years ago, which is something he had never done before. When he brought it home, I agreed to make it for him, and it was great. Since then, I have served it as a first course at many holiday meals. You can also serve it as an hors d'oeuvres.
Also known as Bohemian squash or sweet potato squash, delicata has a rich yellow flesh and a buttery, sweet-corn like taste. The skin is edible and delicious as well. Low in calories and high in fiber, delicata is a good source of vitamin A.
There are so many ways you could flavor this squash. Below are a few of my simple favorites.
This is a Whole Foods Market recipe. I have made it a couple of years for Thanksgiving and everybody loves it! I typically use Amy's brand cream of mushroom soup (semi-condensed) and soymilk instead of buttermilk.
The fragrance of this recipe cooking will be all the notice you'll have to give that "Supper's ready!" Hungry eaters will magically appear, asking to help set the table. The recipe is written for ONE serving, adjust to fit the number of eaters you're serving.
A delicious one dish meal that is full of flavor and will be cooked in less than 1 hour. The only prep time is for 2 cups of water to boil; and make sure the chicken is thawed if previously frozen. I got this recipe from my Brand Named Best Loved Casseroles book, in the "Dinner in Minutes" chapter.
This is a simple way to prepare your veggies, but it looks really pretty and tastes delicious. The good thing about this technique is you can steam them ahead of time, and then sauté them at the last minute so you have a hot side dish ready with the rest of your meal.
