Vegetables

Asparagus With Brown Butter, Capers & Toasted Almonds

April 20, 2021

I like making this spring vegetable side dish because it coaxes loads of flavor from just a handful of ingredients – salty capers, nutty brown butter, thyme, and toasted almonds.

Marinated Baby Artichokes

April 14, 2021

There is a big difference in flavor and texture between homemade marinated baby artichokes and jarred marinated artichokes from the store. There is a bit amount of work involved, but well worth it.

Fennel With Olive Oil, Garlic & Parmesan

April 7, 2021

Fennel is related to a group of herbs that includes anis, cumin, dill, coriander, and caraway. In the vegetable world, however, fennel is recognized as having a taste all its own, one often compared to licorice.

Pan Roasted Radishes

February 2, 2021

One of the things that I like about cooking radishes in this way that it tames spicy radishes and brings out a pleasantly mild turnip-like flavor.

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts

November 17, 2020

This is such an easy flavorful and crispy side dish to make for every day or holiday meals. I grew up eating those overcooked sprouts that my mother used to make although, truth be told, I loved them anyway. Crispy Brussels sprouts sautéed in butter with bacon…Yum!

Fried Green Beans With Garlic

September 14, 2020

This dish uses the technique of frying in hot oil until they the beans become crunchy and flavorful. You could add pork or crumbled feta cheese if you want to. I have been known to eat the cold from the fridge the next day.

Roasted Cauliflower

April 22, 2020

No need to parboil the cauliflower. Just throw them on the baking pan and place in the oven to roast.

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus

April 12, 2020

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus is nice to have for breakfast or as a dinner side dish.

Roasted Cauliflower With Chimichurri Sauce

April 6, 2020

Drizzle the sauce over the entire platter or serve it on the side as a dipping sauce.

Pickled Radishes & Cucumbers

March 26, 2020

With the addition of crisp radishes refrigerator pickles get an update. These are great for a snack or a condiment.
