Homemade Grilled Flatbread

Homemade Grilled Flatbread by John Spottiswood

I couldn't find any authentic pita bread or other flat bread at my local grocery store, so I decided to try grilling my own. It turned out to be really fun and not too difficult. And the taste was amazing. The hardest part was rolling out the dough (I doubled the recipe). Fortunately, I was able to do that while watching a playoff…

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.)

Toasted Couscous Pilaf

Toasted Couscous Pilaf by Farrell May Podgorsek

Israeli couscous makes a great hot pilaf and goes well with so many dishes. This is my husband's favorite grain side dish. I know it's more of a pasta, but we think of couscous as a starch, but not like pasta. The spices can be varied to change the flavor. It is quick and easy, and popular with kids. You can make this vegetarian by…

Tabbouleh by Kiwi Louise

This is a Gordon Ramsey recipe, slightly adapted. It has such a fresh summery taste and people are always asking me for the recipe. It's a great alternative to a rice salad.
