View Full Version : Healthy Vegetarian Side Dishes
February 23rd, 2010, 10:25 AM
My hubby has chronic kidney disease, and has had quadruple by-pass heart surgery. He is not able to eat very much protein each day, so I am looking for some new ideas for tasty vegetable dishes to augment our meals .........but, they need to be low-fat, low-salt. Do any of you have some healthy recipes you could send along? Thanks in advance.

Orzo With Spinach and Feta
I love this and just made it again this morning for a ladies lunch. Everyone loved it!
1/2 pound orzo
1 pound chopped trimmed spinach
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
Coarse salt and ground pepper
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook orzo according to package instructions. Stir in spinach until wilted. Drain.
In a large bowl, toss hot spinach and pasta with mint, crumbled feta cheese, lemon juice, and olive oil. Season with coarse salt and ground pepper.
