Ratatouille

This was always an easy recipe that everybody liked. Serve over pasta or rice; use any leftovers for sandwiches. Like the rest of us that improve with age, this mixture gets better after a couple of days.

Roasted Vidalia Onions

To add more flavors to vegetables, roast them in your oven. Roasting vegetables-carrots, garlic, onions, peppers, potatoes, tomatoes, for example-concentrates their flavors and brings out their natural sweetness. Photo by NatalieMaynor

Rice and Lentil Pilaf

This rice is delicious together with Tandoori-Dijon Chicken (also in this book). This recipe is from a Weight Watchers book; we find their portions to be in the smallish side, so we have doubled the amounts for all ingredients. However, you will have to try and see; you might have a lot of leftovers. Photo …

Fresh Corn and Black Bean Salsa

Curried Basmati Rice

Considered luxury food in India and Pakistan, where it was originally cultivated, this aromatic rice was named basmati, which means “queen of fragrance.” It is delightful mixed with curry. Note: Not all curry powders are created equal. Experiment with various “heats,” from mild to superhot.

Black Beans and Rice

After we moved to Florida in 1991, this dish became one of our family’s comfort foods. Another one of Victoria’s favorites. This gives real meaning to “coming home”. Photo by SaucyGlo

Souvlaki in Pita Bread and Tzatziki Sauce

We have only prepared this dish a couple of times, but found the tzaziki sauce very easy to make, and delicious. Although a traditional accompaniment to souvlaki, there is no reason the sauce cannot be used with other dishes. In fact, we’ve used it as a dip for chips and vegetable appetizers. Since we know …
