Salads & Vegetables
Broccoli Kugel (Parve)
It's 5 p.m. on Friday. The Jewish Sabbath starts in two hours. My 16-year-old daughter walks in from the beach, and tells me she has to take a kugel to the potluck Shabbat dinner she is having with friends. As fast as I can, I throw together this Broccoli Kugel. Boy was I surprised when she came home and told me the kugel was the hit of the party!
2-Minute Carrot Salad (Pareve)
This 2-Minute Carrot Salad takes longer to eat than it does to make. The recipe is so simple that your children can make it. And since it is colorful and tasty, the kids are also likely to eat it. Add a healthy, sweet touch to your next meal by putting this carrot salad on the menu.
Vegetarian Vegetable Kugel (Pareve)
Kugels have been a staple of Jewish cooking for centuries. This savory, pareve, vegetable kugel is a favorite among vegetarians who keep kosher.
2-Minute Cole Slaw (Pareve)
I like to be able to quickly make a variety of salads, especially in the summer. They add a colorful, healthy and light touch to everyday and Sabbath meals. Simply buy a package of ready-cut vegies, combine a few ingredients for the dressing, and stir. In addition to being a quick-fix, I like this 2-Minute Cole Slaw recipe because it is not too heavy and saucy.
Perfect Baked Potatoes (Dairy)
We used to prepare baked potatoes in the microwave. But we’ve discovered that baked potatoes are much tastier when slowly baked in the oven. Simply, wash and dry, puncture with a fork, rub olive oil and salt all around, and slowly bake in the oven. Serve with a green salad for a lite, but satiating meal.
Roasted Eggplant with Techina (Parve)
Eggplant is now "in" in our house. We had kind of forgotten about it. Then a few weeks ago we had eggplant salad at a friends house, and rediscovered this economical, versatile and tasty vegetable. Our favorite way to eat it is roasted with techina and sweet chili sauce.
Sauteed Mushrooms (Parve)
Sauteed Mushrooms make a wonderful parve side dish for the Sabbath meal. This Shabbat I am serving vegetable soup, roast chicken, broccoli, and wild rice. These easy-to-prepare mushrooms add depth to the menu.
Broiled Tomatoes (Parve)
Dress up any meal with Broiled Tomatoes. Serve this healthy and tasty side dish with your breakfast eggs, your lunch bagel, or your chicken dinner. Simply slice the tomatoes in half, season with olive oil, garlic, rosemary or basil, salt and pepper, and broil for 15-20 minutes. Simply delicious.
Roasted Peppers (Parve)
Roasted Peppers are a colorful, delicious, healthy and easy-to-make side dish that can compliment both a kosher dairy or meat meal. Slice the peppers, add garlic cloves, mix with olive oil, and roast.
