Bulgur Pilaf

Bulgur Pilaf by Salad Foodie

Faster and easier to cook than rice, bulgur is a grain to consider for making pilaf. High in fiber and low in fat makes this side dish a healthful choice. Easily converts to vegetarian by omitting the chicken broth. (Medium to large grind bulgur will be best for this recipe.)

Quinoa with Garlic,Peas & Carrots

Quinoa with Garlic,Peas & Carrots by Teri A

One of the great grains for the body, Quinoa! A single cup of cooked quinoa has 8 grams of protein, which is more that most grains. In addition Quinoa has a high amount of iron that raises the hematocrit. This helps people who eat it fight senility since it delivers more oxygen to the brain. It has a very low glycemic index so it…

Black Bean and Tomato Quinoa

Black Bean and Tomato Quinoa by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a delicious quinoa recipe that we served with our garlic lime grilled pork chops. This is flavorful enough that you'll want to serve it with a relatively simple grilled dish. It would go wonderfully with grilled fish, chicken, or steak. Or try it with the pork recipe linked below.

Pineapple Rice with Green Soybeans by Salad Foodie

This colorful rice side or vegetarian entrée is a healthy and novel departure from same-old, same-old steamed rice! I liked it even more next day. Easily adapts to vegetarian.

Cranberry Couscous

Cranberry Couscous by Carolinaheartstrings

love couscous and thought this recipe would be so tasty, and a new and different side dish for my Thanksgiving meal. The tangy sweetness of the dried cranberry is the perfect pairing with turkey and the slight nuttiness of the pistachio is just wonderful. I cannot wait to have this the next day with my leftover turkey!

Quinoa with Fresh Corn and Mint

Quinoa with Fresh Corn and Mint by John Spottiswood

This is a great quinoa dish to serve alongside fish or chicken. I have grown to love quinoa, and it is perfect for this dish. But this would also be great with Israeli cous cous, regular cous cous, pearl barley or even jasmine rice if you are not a fan of quinoa. The mix of flavors is amazing! Try this when fresh corn is cheap and…

Quinoa Pizza Casserole

Quinoa Pizza Casserole by Debra Parsons

I do not know who came up with this--I got it from and instructor at my health club who got it from a friend. Anyway, it's really good. My husband (who is about as far from being a vegetarian as you can get) thought it was excellent. We did it as a light entree with a slad on a Saturday night (even though it is really a side dish).…
