Are you looking for an appetizing way to enhance a nutritious vegetable? Try this eye-catching stir-fry from Marie Rossey of Creston, Ohio. The broccoli keeps its bright color and crispness, while ginger and soy sauce help to spice it up nicely.
Snappy Pea Pods look just as good as they taste. “This side dish is great and really quick,” says Trisha Kruse of Eagle, Idaho. “Sesame oil enhances the pea pods' flavor, giving this medley extra flair.”
I don't mask tastes with heavy sauces, and I use oils sparingly. This is an easy-to-fix stir-fry offers a delightful garlic-orange sauce that keeps the spotlight on the vegetables.—Lee Ann Odell, Erie , Colorado
"For me, the most time-consuming part of preparing this side is picking the green beans in the garden," says Jeanne Bennett of North Richland Hills, Texas. "My family loves their fresh taste, and I love that they're fast to fix!"
Soy sauce and peanut butter flavor these crisp-tender beans. "They're a nice change from the usual green bean salads and casseroles," says Robin Joss from Ashburn, Virginia. "With a sesame seed crunch, this dish always wows guests and brings plenty of recipe requests."
This is one of my favorite low-fat dishes—it's delicious! Rosemary, garlic, almonds and sunflower kernels flavor the broccoli and rice. Sometimes I add cooked cubed chicken for a complete meal.
