I really hope you liked my last blog which featured two of my favorite holiday salad recipes. If you are like me, you may struggle with trying to find an appropriate vegetable recipe for your holiday meals. Steamed veggies seem to get passed around quickly but aren’t usually too popular. Well, I’ve discovered two recipes that are quite delicious and will go well with any of your main dishes. One is for yummy creamed peas and the other is for sweet potatoes so sweet and delicious you could serve them for dessert.
Simply click on the link for each recipe:
1. Green peas are loaded with nutrients and are a good source of vitamin K1 which is important for maintaining bone health and contributes to the body’s blood clotting function. In addition, they contain folic acid and vitamin B6 which is important for cardiovascular health.
2. Sweet potatoes are also loaded with nutrients, specifically manganese, vitamin A and vitamin C. Manganese plays a role in the prevention and treatment of numerous medical conditions. Vitamin A, in the form of beta-carotene is beneficial for vision health and the functioning of our immune system. Vitamin C is not manufactured or stored in the body and is one of the many antioxidants critical for the growth and repair of tissues.
1. Freeze your marshmallows. This will keep them nice and fresh and ready for use in baking or in a fresh salad.
2. Sweet potatoes are very dense and hard to slice. I’ve discovered that if you microwave them for one minute, let them cool for comfortable handling, you can peel them with ease and slicing will not be a problem.
