Appetizers & Side Dishes

This page includes recipes for vegetarian side dishes, snacks, and appetizers that aren’t salads or soups.

Antipasto

Antipasto, which means “before food” in Italian, is a salad-like appetizer consisting of various fresh and pickled vegetables, cheeses, and rolled or sliced meats. For vegetarian antipasto, you can either substitute mock meat products or leave them out altogether.

Black Bean Dip

A spicy black bean paste that works great as a dip, in burritos, or on nachos.

Boiled Rice

Boiled riceI used to hate making rice, until I realized that the world won’t end if I ignore conventional wisdom. It’s ok to remove the lid to stir during cooking and to add more water, and it doesn’t even matter if there’s liquid left at the end. As when cooking pasta, you can just drain whatever’s left when the rice is ready.
