    When it comes to preparing soups and side dishes without dairy, one of the best things to keep in mind is that many dishes from other cultures don't usually contain dairy to begin with. Brothy soups, vegetables roasted in olive oil, and salads that can be prepared with mayonnaise or other egg or tofu-based dressings are always easy solutions. This Cioppino is one such dish; although it's often prepared with butter in the base, substituting heart-healthy olive oil in its place does nothing but make it healthier and more flavorful!

    Of course, there were a lot of tasty soups and sides from 2011, so here are ten favorites that you and your family can enjoy:

  • Best Tuna Salad
  • Cioppino
  • Curried Egg Salad
  • Dolmas
  • Mulled Cranberry Tea
  • Quinoa Corn Fritters
  • Roasted Baby Potatoes
  • Tofu Fingers
  • Vegetarian Tom Yum Soup
  • Watermelon Gazpacho
