“This type of dish is traditionally served as a side dish after the main meat entree. You could also serve several similar dishes at once with some crusty bread or pita to sop up the sauces. Vegetables that are cooked by this method are rich and lush and delicate all at once. They are very different than vegetables boiled in water.”
