Oven Roasted Vegetables

Oven Roasted Vegetables by Salad Foodie

I enjoy roasted vegetables and have tried several ways of preparing them, but this is the version I keep coming back to. Love the garlic and the way the veggies begin to caramelize.

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. This makes a beautiful presentation with interesting flavor combinations. The real trick is getting the seasoning right. Experiment with your favorite herb combinations,…

Reminiscent of lasagna but loaded with veggies, this dish will take center stage at group gatherings. It makes good use of summer's zucchini surplus, so file the recipe away in your stash of squash faves. Don't let the cauliflower put you off - it is so well camouflaged that while many noticed the zucchini, no one detected cauliflower…

Tom's Creamy Scrambled Eggs

Tom's Creamy Scrambled Eggs by Salad Foodie

This recipe is so simple I was reluctant to post it. But I had never tasted eggs cooked this way before Tom served some to me, and I was hooked. The secrets are to scramble the eggs "soft" so they are very moist, and add the cream cheese right at the end so there are visible streaks throughout. So simple - so divine!
