Sides

Stir-Fried Spicy Asparagus

We adapted this veggie side dish from a recipe by David Tanis in The New York Times, and in our humble opinions, it’s perfect. Simple, fast, and versatile – serve it with fish, pasta, rice, meat – we’re definitely making it again!  

 

Cajun Pork Burgers with Corn Maquechoux

We celebrate late summer with a twist on classic grilled sausage and corn-on-the-cob: Rachael Ray’s Cajun Pork Burgers from “Thirty Minute Meals 2“, with Corn Maquechoux. Pronounced “MOCK SHOE”, this is a dish from southwest Louisiana that the Cajuns learned from local Native American tribes. The original recipe from The […]

 

Tacolicious Refried Beans

These are so good and so easy, and so worth the extra time it takes to buy dried black beans in bulk and soak them overnight! Thanks to “Tacolicious” for the original recipe, which we’ve adapted to make low-FODMAP. We serve these beans on the regular, with tacos or bean […]

 

Spicy Sesame String Beans

This recipe comes from “Bi-Rite Market’s Eat Good Food“. String beans are a great veggie for a family dinner. They’re available fresh or frozen, and have a mild, sweet taste that easily conforms to whatever seasoning and flavor combinations you apply to them. This side dish comes together in less […]

 

Curried Coconut Sweet Potato Mash

We found this recipe in “Bi-Rite Market’s Eat Good Food” cookbook, which was gifted to us years ago by good friends. The original recipe isn’t vegan, but other than that, we didn’t make any changes. We made this thinking it would be a good side dish, but it turns out […]

 

Brussels Sprouts Salad

The first time I tried Brussels Sprouts 20 years ago, I hated them. My husband (then boyfriend) brought home a bag from our local grocer, and proceeded to torture them until they were unedible. Neither of us is sure what he did to them, but they tasted bitter and mushy. […]

 

Roasted Shishito Peppers

So many of our vegetable dishes come to us by way of our farm basket. It introduces us to new veggies and pushes us to try new recipes. We’d had roasted Shishito peppers as an appetizer at a restaurant, but we’d never prepared them at home – until we received […]

 

Zucchini Salad

Last week’s farm basket included some beautiful summer squash, basil, and parsley. Instead of cooking the zucchini, we decided to try a raw preparation. We based this recipe on one we found in The New York Times by Alexa Weibel; her version included pecorino, garlic, and almonds. Ours is vegan […]

 

Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Adding a splash of balsamic vinegar adds just a hint of sweetness to these beautiful roasted brussels sprouts. They’re cooked with slices of bacon on top, which allow the flavor and fat from the bacon to seep into the vegetables. Truly delightful! We served this alongside Georgian Pecan-Crusted Trout.
