BLACK BEAN and QUINOA BURGERS

BLACK BEAN and QUINOA BURGERS

If you are, as we are, trying to cut back on animal protein, I have a great recipe for you.  I made the base of it intending on making burgers All mixed together mostly with onhand ingredients, it’s such a treat for us onboard our little boat, in our little galley (I do mean little) to be able to put together a healthy meal without having to go to market for fresh things.  I call it shopping my pantry. The…

FRESH TOMATO, ZUCCHINI and HALLOUMI BAKE

FRESH TOMATO, ZUCCHINI and HALLOUMI BAKE

Here I am with another yummy fresh tomato recipe.  This time I baked them topped with Halloumi cheese in my little Omnia stove top oven. I suppose I could have made it a one pot wonder but tonight I was feeling cavalier and used a saucepan to simmer the tomato mixture.  Two pots to clean up – oh what a reckless Galley Kat I am! My galley cookware takes so little cleaning up that it was worth using. Once the…

GRILLED CARROT DOGS

GRILLED CARROT DOGS

Today’s recipe is a little weird, even for me.  I’m not vegetarian and certainly not vegan.  I do like meat from time to time and now that we are living on the east coast am loving the abundance of fresh fish and seafood sometimes literally at our back door. But I’m really intrigued by some nutirent-rich plant-based dishes.  I feel it’s good to learn more about how other healthy people prepare their meals and about the ingredient selection they make….

WARM WILD MUSHROOM SALAD

WARM WILD MUSHROOM SALAD

At the beginning of each boating season I buy a big container of dried wild mushrooms.  They’re easy to re-hydrate for so many delicious meals.  I also grind them to add richness to sauces. Look at those rich beefy looking babies.  They’ve been soaking in water all day even though it usually takes about 15 minutes to re-hydrate. And all deep brown broth is so good saved for sauces, gravies or soups.  Please don’t toss it. If someone told me…

FRESH TOMATO and PASTA CAPRESE SALAD

FRESH TOMATO and PASTA CAPRESE SALAD

I can’t get enough of fresh market tomatoes.  Ripe plump so juicy and sweet they make the perfect back drop to any summer meal. Tonight I made this super delicious salad alla caprese style but with the addition of pasta.  Any pasta will do but fettuccini  was what I had on hand (broken into 2-3″ bits to make eating easier). This one is not too dissimilar to my Ultimate Tomato Salad  but the addition of pasta gives it a whole meal step…

GINGER POACHED EGG SOUP

GINGER POACHED EGG SOUP

Today’s recipe qualifies as an easy meatless meal. Lots of garlic, broth and ginger for the base. Eggs and bok choy filled in the rest to give us a well-rounded nutritious supper.   I used vegetable broth but chicken or beef broth would add extra dimension.  I’ve also used a spoonful or two of miso paste in the past for that added immunity-probiotic boost. Loosen the miso with a bit of broth or water then stir in at the end…
