BULGAR SPINACH CHEESE BURGERS

BULGAR SPINACH CHEESE BURGERS

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.

SWEET POTATO PATTIES with CURRIED YOGURT SAUCE

They also make an easy appetizer or snack. Just make little two inch crispy potato medallions with a touch of sauce on the side.     SWEET POTATO PATTIES   1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated 1/2 tsp…

TEFF, RED LENTIL & BULGAR STEW

TEFF, RED LENTIL & BULGAR STEW

I’m all about trying new things especially when it comes to reducing consumption of animal protein so when I found a bag of Teff at our local market a while ago, I thought it worth a try. Lots of positive advantages: quick cooking (less fuel used) easy to store (takes up very little space, no refrigeration required) good nutritional profile (gluten-free, good source of iron, Vitamin C, protein and calcium (good for the old Galley Kat’s bones) Our recent visit…
