LENTILS – A Love Story

LENTILS – A Love Story

I think my love affair with lentils began several years ago when during a visit with my sister she served her oh so yummy Lemony Lentil Soup (link to recipe) We have since been enjoying many delicious dishes from stews to salads to more soups to lentil veggie cakes and our Meatless Monday quite often features a lentil dish. Lentil meals are also frequent onboard our sailboat. They are the perfect provision. Storage without refrigeration. Economical. They provide quick and…

BACON BRAISED CABBAGE with BLOOD ORANGE VINEGAR

BACON BRAISED CABBAGE with BLOOD ORANGE VINEGAR

As cabbage keeps better than lettuce onboard, I have been working on some recipes using cabbage to add to my galley repertoire. Our favourite so far is Japanese Pancakes… Braised cabbage is also an easy addition to a grilled supper and I find that a sprinkle of vinegar adds so much to the flavour, which brings me to the reason for this post… Recently we spent a wonderful evening dining with friends and part of their very generous host gift…

CRISPY KALE

CRISPY KALE

I needed the kale to top a pasta dish but ‘sans’ oven onboard I would normally have to do without. It is possible that it could be done with a grill sheet on the bbq so will give it a try once R.E.D. is in the water again and let you know…             CRISPY KALE 4 cups of kale leaves 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil (again with the sesame…) 4 tbsp finely grated Romano cheese…

BUTTERNUT SQUASH & APPLE HASH

BUTTERNUT SQUASH & APPLE HASH

I found this recipe using squash the other day and thought it looked like a healthy seasonal side dish… …it required just a few ingredients, ones that could easily be stored onboard, apples, squash, nuts and what boat doesn’t have a good supply of bacon… The original recipe required oven and stove top so in keeping my simple galley focus I turned it into a one-pan-dish… Butternit Squash & Apple Hash   2 cups diced butternut squash, peeled and diced…

Lemon Kale Chickpeas

Lemon Kale Chickpeas

Kale is all the rage these days. My daughter has found ways to use it everywhere from rich green smoothies to salads to casseroles….   For one of our Meatless Mondays I made this. Would have preferred baby kale but the big-less-tender-version was all I could find at our local market today. I don’t have an actual recipe so quantities are variable and this is super easy to throw together with one pan and a tiny galley…   Lemon Kale…
