Recipe

Whenever I can I like to incorporate vegetables into my side dishes. Not only does it make for less cleanup afterwards, it also makes it more likely that my non-vegetables eating friends will accidentally eat some greens. This is especially true when you cut them up nice and small so they are almost impossible to pick around. This simple dish makes a great side, base for proteins, and is terrific tossed with a green salad.
