MEATY MEATLESS ‘MEAT’ LOAF

Welcome to another creation for your next Meatless Monday, Galley Peeps.  It’s full of tasty mushroom morsels and nutty toothy texture all densely packed into one savoury loaf. I had some leftover wild and brown rice that I had cooked in the pressure cooker the other day so threw that in for extra oomph. And now that we are back on land for the next […]

SWEET POTATO LENTIL STEW

I have a tasty dish for your Meatless Monday, Galley Peeps. It took next to no time in the pressure cooker. Or for those of you lucky enough to own an Instant Pot, you will barely have time to set the table. This recipe is great on days when you don’t have a lot of time to cook but want something hearty to fill your […]

MUJADDARA

My guy likes pretty much everything I make.  He never complains about my frequent dalliance into the vegetarian, vegan world although I know he loves meaty dishes. But when I get an unsolicited comment like ‘this one’s a keeper Kathy’, I sit up and take notice. The flavours in this Mediterranean inspired dish are wonderful, the crispy fried onion the perfect complement and I think […]

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! […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Happy Meatless Monday Galley Peeps. The following is a little simple economical vegetarian dish for tonight’s supper loaded with lots of rich layered veggies, some eggs, and milk. Even though I now have the Omnia silicone insert, I still prepare the pan with a good coating of my homemade pan release (recipe here)  Topped with freshly grated parmesan. Then baked in my stove top Omnia […]
