LIZ’S EGGLESS EGG SALAD

LIZ’S EGGLESS EGG SALAD

Since we have embarked on our meatless/vegan-ish journey and since putting my request out there for my readers to send in their favourite recipes to challenge me in my little galley, I have received almost exclusively vegan recipes.  It would seem that a good number of you are pursuing life with the same mind set as we are…that is…reducing animal protein, eating less meat, while doing our part for the planet. This is really a good thing, so thank you…

JOAN’S VEGAN PITA BREAD

JOAN’S VEGAN PITA BREAD

There was something about this recipe that had my husband saying..’this is THE ONE’…and I’m not sure why. It’s not the vegan thing because my Frenchman is…well…French.. and loves anything bread-related no matter the ingredients.  I think it was the texture…smooth with a little chew and there is a new technique I’ve learned to make the pita separate in the centre, perfect for filling with my favourite  chickpea sandwich mix.  Or maybe it’s simply that I’m getting so much better…

CELERIAC – my new favourite vegetable

CELERIAC – my new favourite vegetable

A while ago now during a family gathering, we were treated to a wonderful buffet.  One dish immediately caught my attention.  A tangy, creamy side dish with a light crunch and  subtle hint of Dijon. It was love at first bite.  What is this, I asked?  The response… rémoulade de céleri-rave…from a local catering service.  English translation…celery root salad. Once we returned home I immediately went to our local market in search of this new-to-me vegetable.  Celery root or celeriac…

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)

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.  …

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),…
