Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasted vegetables are an easy and delicious addition to any meal. The high oven temperature gives them a nice crisp exterior and caramelized flavor while keeping the inside tender and moist. You can roast most any vegetable and mixing two to three vegetables is great for a variety of flavor, texture and color. Roasted vegetables are wonderful in salads, soups, omelets, sandwiches, or over pasta. The possibilities are endless!

Chicken Angelo

The mushrooms, onions, garlic and cheese in this recipe dress up the baked chicken breasts with a nice combination of flavor and texture. I used cremini mushrooms because they have a slightly earthy taste and are more flavorful than button mushrooms. Mushrooms are packed with vitamins, minerals and disease fighting antioxidants. Enjoy!

Southwest Black Bean, Corn, Quinoa, & Kale

This nutrient dense vegan dish is high in protein, high in fiber, and is gluten free. It is also very versatile and can be served warm or cold as a side dish or a main course. Raw kale is an acquired taste for some. The lemon juice in this recipe will help to tenderize the kale, but you can always steam the kale if you prefer a more wilted version. Enjoy!

Asian Style Collard Greens

Full of vitamins and minerals, collard greens are surely one of nature’s super foods. Like other leafy greens, collard greens have cancer-preventive properties and may offer protection against heart disease, as well. This Asian style side dish – featuring garlic, ginger and tamari sauce – is as tasty as it is easy to prepare. Remember, it’s good to go green!
