Broccoli and Cauliflower
I make this colorful trio of sautéed vegetables often, as the combination of broccoli, carrots, and yellow squash complements many different kinds of main dishes, including pastas, potatoes, and grains.
Kale and broccoli, two nutritious and delicious green vegetables are a compatible team in this sauté featuring Asian flavors. This is a great side dish with other Asian-inspired noodle, rice, or tofu dishes. more→
Once you have some rice cooked, this sturdy, aromatic dish featuring cauliflower and curry seasonings comes together quickly. For a nice meal, serve with Lentils with Greens and Sun-Dried Tomatoes and a simple salad. more→
This pasta dish is filled with a variety of delicious flavors and textures — tomatoes walnuts, as well as along with healthful broccoli. Broccoli is loaded with calcium and vitamin C and nutrient-rich walnuts are a good source of alpha-linolenic acid, an essential omega-3 fatty acid. more→
This may be too light to serve as a meal’s centerpiece, but it’s perfect for pairing with a dish of equal heft, like a bean or legume dish, or a main dish salad. I’ve also enjoyed leftovers of this served cold in a wrap with shredded lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
Tofu-filled ravioli are reminiscent of little dumplings in this veggie stir-fry. Using hoisin sauce to finish the dish adds a tasty glaze and just the right flavor kick to the mild ravioli.
One evening not long ago, I had about one hour to make dinner for the family—and eat—between getting home from one activity and going out to another. I improvised based on what was in the fridge rather than following a recipe. This was the result; everyone liked this simple dish so much that I was compelled to compose a recipe for it, and have followed it many times since.
Steamed fresh veggies offer a nice change of pace from stir-fries. What makes this dish great is a rich and delectable peanut sauce.
