JEANNE’S MEXICAN LASAGNA (vegetarian/vegan version)

JEANNE’S MEXICAN LASAGNA (vegetarian/vegan version)

This was fun to put together.  We love Mexican cuisine and when I received this recipe from one of my Galley Peeps, Jeanne, I thought it would be the perfect dish to prepare in my Omnia stove top oven. The fact that it is vegetarian made it the perfect fit for our current dining life style.  As Jeanne mentioned in her note to me, you can also make it vegan if you wish by swapping out the cheddar for a…

MELANIE’S MEATLESS ‘MEATLOAF’

MELANIE’S MEATLESS ‘MEATLOAF’

Melanie’s Meatless ‘Meatloaf’!  How’s that for alliteration?  I swear I don’t pair reader’s submissions with names of the recipes.  It really was Melanie who sent me her meatless meatloaf recipe…which by the way is also gluten free, grain free and egg free…as well as being, of course, meat free.  This new trend, shall I call it, on Sea Salt Galley Kat, has sparked some very interesting vegan/vegetarian recipes for me to try…and couldn’t we all benefit from less animal protein…

AMANDA’S FAKIN’ BACON

AMANDA’S FAKIN’ BACON

This meatless journey just keeps getting better and better.  But with this next recipe, I may have finally been stumped as far as being able to reproduce it in my little oven-less galley. My first batch of Fakin’ Bacon was a huge success done in a conventional land oven.  The rice paper you use isn’t important but I found the square sheets meant less waste and it was easier to create a more authentic bacon look.  Super crunchy and oh…

JESSE’S VEGAN MAYONNAISE

JESSE’S VEGAN MAYONNAISE

Remember when I posted about some diet changes we have been working on and how I suggested you save the juice (aka aquafaba) from canned chickpeas?  Well this next recipe from the same Galley Peep that sent me her fabulous falafel recipe  will make that wee effort worth your while.  Her recipe was a huge hit at a recent gathering (that recipe can be found here Jesses’s Fabulous Falafel). I tweaked her mayo recipe ever so slightly for a less…

MY PLANT-BASED JOURNEY & JESSIE’S FABULOUS FALAFEL

MY PLANT-BASED JOURNEY & JESSIE’S FABULOUS FALAFEL

We’ve recently made some changes to our diets.  I’m not exactly sure how to label it or if I should even be concerned about labels.  It’s our business after all…and it’s our bodies we’re filling…but dietary labels are a thing I guess, so let’s call it vegan (imagine me cringing here).  Nothing with a face or mother or their byproducts.  Apparently I can’t call it whole food or plant-based…or what’s the latest?…WFPB!…or the WFPBNO…because they exclude things like my awesome…

ADDICTIVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS with BACON and DATES

ADDICTIVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS with BACON and DATES

Did you ever think you would see ’addictive’ and ‘Brussels sprouts’ coupled together.  Well, this might just be the recipe to tip all those sprout haters into sprout lovers.  Savoury and sweet all in the same dish with a little added crunch of charred Brussels sprouts, it makes the perfect side dish.  But today was to be one of our meatless days and I wanted this to be the main event so I added some crumbled bacon and quickly seared…

QUICK KOREAN-STYLE FRIED RICE

QUICK KOREAN-STYLE FRIED RICE

Hi there from your absent Galley Kat.  We’ve been so busy here in our little home by the sea that I can barely turn around before another round of guests from away arrive.  I’ve been told to stop being such a good Welcome to Nova Scotia ambassador but when you’re so much in love with living in paradise it’s really hard for me to stop shouting it from the roof tops. I know that in my last post (recipe here:Easy…

POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

My daughter invited us to dine with her a while ago and made the most delicious vegetarian meal.  The flavours for such a simple dish were so intense served with a side of fluffy rice and a few squares of crispy salty paneer, I just had to do a repeat performance for the two of us.  My husband, a meat lover, was amazed that a bowl of simple vegetables could be SO good. We had some leftovers so I mashed…

CARROT and HALLOUMI BURGERS

Hi everyone,  thanks for dropping by… I’ve been a busy busy Galley Kat this week with projects, both indoors and out, screaming to be attacked.  I did, however take the time to write up today’s offering for you… a trifecta of deliciousness… and all plant-based to boot. Tasty veggie packed burger mixture with the added protein punch of crunchy quinoa and salty halloumi….a smearing of home made hummus….and a spicy crispy slaw to round it all out. The carrot mixture…

Garlicky White Bean, Artichoke and Broccoli

Garlicky White Bean, Artichoke and Broccoli

A very long day, our weekend guests  had just left and I really didn’t feel like turning around and making supper.  Where’s my glass of wine and foot stool?  I’ll just sit here while someone cooks. No offers? No, don’t get up, I take care of it (me walking toward the kitchen). This will have to be a ‘shop my pantry’ meal. I found one head of broccoli in the refrigerator wanting some attention. There was also a can of…
