MASHED SWEET POTATO with RICH TANDOORI SAUCE

MASHED SWEET POTATO with RICH TANDOORI SAUCE

I’m the cuckoo bird of the recipe development world.  My recipes are for the most part those of what others have created and adapted to fit in with our simple spartan boat galley world.  I will always give credit to the originator when possible though. Every once in a blue moon however I do hit one out of the park all by myself.  This is one of those occasions.  After several weeks of trying out plant-based meal delivery I’ve gained…

LEMON CREAM PIE

LEMON CREAM PIE

No gluten! No dairy! No sugar! No cooking! No kidding! I’m not one to seek out specifically gluten/or dairy/ or sugar-free recipes but this one caught my attention.  I love anything lemon. It makes  a just enough. Perfect for my little spring form pan and tiny refrigerator. Perfect to serve for a small dinner gathering and perfect for the two of us for several days. But how could something this good, so lemony, so sweet, be healthy I had to…

MINI (VEGAN) PUMPKIN PIES (no baking required)

MINI (VEGAN) PUMPKIN PIES (no baking required)

Want a touch of something sweet for your next dessert? Here’s a good one for you.. No baking required, so easy to make and vegan, these little pumpkin pies were really delicious. I simply ground up some almonds, coconut shreds, added a little coconut oil and maple syrup… Pressed the mixture into my mini cheese cake pan. (a regular muffin tin would work well with little parchments cups) I added the pumpkin mixture, then refrigerated for a few hours.  …

VEGAN ‘RICOTTA’

VEGAN ‘RICOTTA’

Let’s make things perfectly clear, I am not (at least for the foreseeable future) not vegan. Captain and I love meat, eggs, oh and the cheese!, fish, seafood…. …most things edible with a face and a mother. …sadly the list of what we love to eat is endless, and what we don’t like? ..nothing comes to mind But… whenever I encounter a great recipe that is vegan, I jump on it! Reduced animal protein reduce cholesterol, is something I am…

END OF SEASON GALLEY CLEAN OUT CASSEROLE

END OF SEASON GALLEY CLEAN OUT CASSEROLE

Well!… I have to admit that when I provisioned this year I really really really overdid it. Always one to have a contingency plan I loaded up our little boat with a good deal of contingencies.. packaged this, canned that, long term dried stuff, two or three of this or that… you name it, I had it. Now that we have to face unloading and winterizing, I need to use up our stash.     …so I sautéd some garlic,…

BUDDHA BOWLS with CREAMY CARROT GINGER DRESSING

BUDDHA BOWLS with CREAMY CARROT GINGER DRESSING

I’m not sure if there is a specific recipe for a Buddha bowl but in our galley it lends itself to all sorts of options… completely vegan, vegetarian with or without tofu or with animal protein or fish added. The rice can be cooked in 15 minutes in a pressure cooker. The sweet potatoes can be grilled on skewers on your barbecue or as I did this time, tossed in some oil (a splash of sesame oil added is great),…

VEGAN PANNA COTTA

VEGAN PANNA COTTA

I made this dessert the other night for a dinner party… Panna Cotta with Blood Oranges in Grand Marnier Caramel Sauce… (let me know if you would like this recipe. It isn’t vegan but it is SO good.) It is really easy to make and takes so little time. Would I go to the bother of making the caramel sauce on the boat? …possibly. Would I likely keep a good supply of heavy cream onboard? …possibly. I tried several ways…

TOFETA

TOFETA

Is this even a word? Tofu > Feta = TOFETA We aren’t vegans or even vegetarians. But I will quite often insert a tasty meal without meat or fish. And from time to time I create a winner without meat or eggs or dairy.     Veganism does intrigue me though… Life without meat or fish? – maybe… Life without eggs? – perhaps… Life without cheese? – have you met my French cheese-loving husband? But this Galley Kat is always…

QUICK VEGAN ASIAN “BEEF”

QUICK VEGAN ASIAN “BEEF”

TVP or textured vegetable protein has turned out to be a very useful addition to our boat provisioning since it doesn’t require refrigeration (our little cooler space is at a premium). I don’t use it often but it is a great stand-in when a quick meal is required… and I mean quick… (see link to my vegan boat chili)   …once hydrated the TVP has the appearance of ground chicken or turkey and takes on the flavours of whatever seasoning…
