There are so many great recipes out there for delicious vegetarian meals

that I can’t remember the last time I actually cooked a meal with meat…

fish, yes

but no animal has been sacrificed in my galley for ages.

Captain hasn’t complained either,

although he doesn’t complain, ever.

He once told me that if someone goes to the trouble of preparing a meal for him,

he should be appreciative of the effort…

And really Galley Peeps,

between you and me,

I think he is a very lucky recipient of some pretty yummy meals

from this Kat’s Galley…

Pack this next recipe away for your next Meatless Monday…

..easy, healthy with lots of flavour..


2 cups cooked Bulgar

1 small onion chopped

3 cloves garlic, crushed

1/2 cup steamed spinach, as much of water expressed out as possible

1/2 cup grated cheese (I used gouda)

3 eggs

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves (or 1/2 tsp dried basil)

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp ground pepper

1/2 tsp dried chilis (optional)

1/2 cup panko crumbs

oil for cooking

Mix all ingredients except oil together

Form into 6 equal sized balls.

Place bulgar balls in pan and flatten with your spatula.

Cook on each side until well browned.

Enjoy with a crisp salad.

Galley Kat Notes

For a great appetizer course form into several smaller portions,

about 2″ when flattened
