Green Bean, Carrot and Mushroom Medley

Green Bean, Carrot and Mushroom Medley by Salad Foodie

A quick-to-fix green bean side dish or vegetarian main dish. I like to use my steamer for the beans and carrots, but they could also be boiled briefly and drained.

Grilled Veggies with a Yogurt-Cumin Sauce by Kyra Martin

This was so fresh and light. I really loved it. If you're using Greek yogurt, omit the sour cream. I used squash, but I think sauce would be good with any Mediterranean type vegetable.
