Roasted Brussels Sprouts

1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons good olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Sprinkle with more kosher salt ( I like these salty like French fries), and serve immediately.

  For the quinoa: In a medium saucepan, add the chicken stock, lemon juice and quinoa. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pan and cook until all the liquid is absorbed, about 12 to 15 minutes.

For the dressing: In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, basil, parsley, thyme, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Pour the dressing over the quinoa and toss until all the ingredients are coated. Transfer the quinoa to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve.

Hash Brown Casserole

Nonstick cooking spray, for coating baking dish
12 ounces 2-percent Greek yogurt
1 cup lowfat (1-percent) milk
1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
3 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
2 pounds frozen shredded hash browns, thawed
1 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar (4 ounces)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large yellow onions, chopped
1 pound sliced cremini (baby bella) mushrooms
3 large cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons panko breadcrumbs
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, optional
1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or chives, for garnish

  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9- by 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Whisk together the yogurt, milk, sour cream and flour in a large bowl. Stir in the hash browns, 1/2 cup of the Cheddar, 2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring often, until soft and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms are wilted and the onions begin to brown, about 10 minutes more. If the pan gets too hot, add a splash or two of water as needed. Stir in the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Stir the vegetables into the hash brown mixture to combine.

Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared dish. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese, the breadcrumbs and nutmeg if using. Bake until a deep golden brown, about 45 minutes.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
