Not everyone is an eggplant lover. But this may change that. Long, slender Asian eggplant are no-fuss, and soak up the spicy, sweet, sticky sauce they're doused with when creamy and tender. This is a hearty vegetarian main course paired with brown rice, quinoa, or even wheat berries, but would also make a terrific side dish.
We've put together a nourishing plate for you with these July 4th recipes. All your favorite barbecue food--potato salad, baked beans, tomato salad ... even pickles and ice cream--along with one of our best BBQ recipes (try Lia's Best Barbecue Ribs). Happy July 4th from Nourish Network!
This tomato salad is the perfect fresh-from-the-garden all-purpose side dish for the season. It's bursting with green beans, tomatoes, corn and cucumbers, with toothsome bulgur adding just a touch of heft (and healthy whole grain) while soaking up the tangy dressing.
Fregola is an Italian rolled pasta similar to Israeli couscous, and it's wonderfully toothsome in this salad. If you can't find fregola (or wanted to go gluten free), millet would be a great substitute. Top with a few chunks of good quality tuna packed in olive oil and you've got a nice, hearty, nourishing meal.
