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…
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

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
cook as above
and serve warm with a dab of Basil Aoli
