Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick!

Scalloped Potatoes ~ Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

Scalloped potatoes cooked in 12 minutes? Compare that to the hour-and-a-half baking time most scalloped potato recipes require, and this recipe may become a year round “fav” for you since the microwave keeps your kitchen cool. Another appeal is the unusual and subtle flavor Swiss cheese gives to this dish. The recipe is based on one…

Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce

Stir-Fried Broccoli with Chili-Garlic Sauce by John Spottiswood

My father-in-law has become an amazing cook, and he made this as part of our Easter lunch this year with the fabulous pork tenderloin recipe (see linked below). This version isn't gloppy with extra sauce like you find in many Chinese take out places. It's very flavorful but also relatively light and healthful. He made a TON of it,…

Roasted Broccoli

Roasted Broccoli by John Spottiswood

This roasted broccoli recipe, adapted from the Barefoot Contessa, is really wonderful. It has a lot of flavor. We served it with a mild pasta, and it was just a wonderful combination. Don't be worried by the lemon juice and zest. They impart a subtle flavor that adds a nice dimension to this dish.

Korean potato side dish

Korean potato side dish by John Spottiswood

I always love these sweet and salty braised potatoes when they are served along with kimchi and various other side dishes at korean restaurants. I've always wanted to make them, and grilling Galbi gave me the perfect opportunity. I started with a recipe from maangchi.com and substituted a mix of sugar and mirin for the corn syrup…

Garlic Ginger Green Beans

Garlic Ginger Green Beans by John Spottiswood

These are an excellent, healthy side dish to any grilled meat. I highly recommend them with the Chinese BBQ chicken recipe below, but honestly these would go well with just about anything. Unfortunately these were tapped out long before our chicken, so make more than you think you need. They are great the next day too!

Green Beans with Basil and Tomato

Green Beans with Basil and Tomato by John Spottiswood

This is an attractive and tasty side dish. The butter, basil and tomato adds a nice flavor boost to the green beans. I've made them with garlic salt and regular kosher salt, both are delicious. If you want to spice it up, add more black pepper or substitute crushed red pepper for the black pepper.

Quick and Tasty Greek Cauliflower

Quick and Tasty Greek Cauliflower by Salad Foodie

There are times I've put the bulk of time preparing a middle east main dish and just need a quick side of vegetables. When cauliflower is on hand, I get the wok out and prepare this Greek flavored dish. I have tried my own mixtures of Greek seasonings (there's clone recipes out there) but when the commercial seasoning's handy, why not…
