Fields of Greens: Companion Dishes

The Wilted Spinach with Lemon and Pine Nuts comes together quickly and provides a palate-pleasing way to ingest one of nature’s super foods. Brussel Sprouts with Chestnuts and Maple Butter may actually pave the way for this vegetable to appear more often on the menu. We were also particularly fond of the Balsamic Roasted Red Onions.

As for the beans and grains, we gave our “thumbs up” to the Warm Black Beans with Chilies and Cilantro and the Pinto Beans with New Mexican Chilies. Though not generally tofu fans, we enjoyed grilling Tofu with Sweet Ginger Marinade.
