Have a great weekend everyone and see you all Monday!
One of my favourite sides is rice. I love a great rice dish with lots of flavour and lots of vegetables. What I especially love about rice is you can cater it to suit whatever flavour combinations the rest of your meal include. Rice is such a neutral dish you can spice any which way and it will pretty much be fantastic.
They pair so nicely with a variety of dishes while also being a delicious treat on their own. All they need is a little smear of butter and they're delish!
Hope you guys enjoy them!
While you're at it, check out my other savoury muffin recipe but excuse the document / pics, I was only starting out back then :P
This dip is along the lines of a spinach & artichoke dip but with a different supporting cast of veggies. When it comes to creamy dips like this you can easily swap or add veggies to cater it to your own tastes. In this case, it's all about the garden veggies. Peppers, carrots, and onions find themselves baked up in this creamy dip.
Break out the Triscuits!
Cruciferous veggies including Kale, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, and Broccoli have anti cancer properties that are so good for our bodies but we often cook them away. This is especially the case with Brussel Sprouts. They are SO DELICIOUS steamed, roasted, pan fried, baked...the list goes on and on. With all of that being said, they can also be delicious raw when prepared properly.
This delicious brussel sprout salad is the perfect example of how to enjoy them raw. They are so delicious in a salad like this one and I think y'all are going to love it!
I absolutely love my indoor grill. It's such a wonderful way of cooking veggies without as much fat. Eggplants are notoriously fatty simply because they soak up a lot of the fat they are cooked in. When they are cooked on the grill, so little fat is required to cook them thoroughly that they are so much better for you!
My grill is teeny tiny, if you have a regular or even large sized grill this recipe will be much less time consuming. I had to cook the eggplant / tomato separately but with the right sized grill, you can easily complete everything simultaneously. With a larger grill you can also prepare more servings at a time.
The eggplant is meaty and tender, the grilled tomato adds a lovely tang to the burger and the simple, creamy mayo is the only condiment needed. This "burger" is super satisfying and ready in a flash!
