Quinoa Pilaf with Mushrooms (Food Network)

This dish has been a big hit as a side dish at Calhoun. The kids at Calhoun were fascinated to learn that quinoa is not a grain but a seed. It looks like a grain and reacts like a grain when cooked but it is still a seed. You can see the stamen in cooked "grain". It's nutty and delicious as a replacement for rice.

Zucchini Casserole with Tomatoes

Mexican Lasagna from

Traditional Mexican ingredients come together in a layered casserole. Flour (corn used here) tortillas replace the pasta used in lasagna. This makes a filling meal. It is an excellent way to stretch ground beef. Feel free to adjust the spiciness to suit your individual taste. As an added bonus, Mexican lasagna is always a big hit with kids. It is easy enough for a junior chef to make with a little supervision.
