Onions add their sweet, savory flavor to many of the things I cook. They also deserve a spotlight of their own. You can usually find pearl onions year-round in the produce department (or if you want, in the freezer case). Dressed up just a little with butter and parsley, and maybe a little paprika, they’re a great side dish for many meals. You can easily use a substitute for the butter to make the onions casein-free.
Navy beans are one of our favorites here…well, especially Al’s favorites. He likes them with just about anything…in a salad, as part of a main dish or as a side in a main meal. He likes them in many combinations, but most of all, he likes them in soup.
Snacks are always popular around my house, sometimes more so than meals! Gluten-free snacks that my husband likes can be especially hard to find, so when we have one that we both like, like these redskins, I take note. Don’t tell him but these are also much healthier than many of his favorite snacks. I recently served them with some carrot and celery sticks on the side – he was well on his way to a whole day’s worth of veggies before he even got to dinner!
The other night I needed a fast meal — more than that, I needed to put more fiber in front of my hubby that day…It was good enough together that he didn’t even go get a bun to have with his hamburger steak!
