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…

PAT’S PERFECT PASTA (plus bonus recipe for Mushroom and Sage Pasta Dish)

PAT’S PERFECT PASTA (plus bonus recipe for Mushroom and Sage Pasta Dish)

Have you ever tried to make your own pasta? Friends have told me it’s super easy.  Recent guests to our humble seaside home said they make pasta for lobster filled ravioli….oh, be still my seafood loving beating heart! And recently someone from social media posted a picture of his outdoor pasta making.  So, I thought to myself, if he can easily make it in a camping environment, I can certainly make it in my teeny tiny galley.  Then low and…

JUDY’S GREEN TOMATO LOAF

JUDY’S GREEN TOMATO LOAF

What perfect timing for this next Friends’ Faves recipe.  Here on the east coast, temps have started dropping and I have so many green tomatoes that will never ripen in their current place on the vines.  Entering onto my galley scene –  Green Tomato Loaf. If you want some point of reference the results are similar to zucchini cake….all moisty and tasty.  The perfect touch of sweetness with a cup of coffee or tea.  Or gussy it up with a…

EASY FLATBREAD (an update)

EASY FLATBREAD (an update)

I’ve been making my own pita bread for a number of years now because…well…because it’s too easy not to ((link here to my old recipe: Stove Top Pita). Recently though I  ran across an even easier method.  No yeast required with very little kneading and I’m liking the results even better.  Once the dough is mixed you need only 30 minutes of rest time before forming. It makes eight 8” rounds, Add a pinch or two of dried  herbs or…

CHRISTINE’S BAKED POTATO DIP

CHRISTINE’S BAKED POTATO DIP

I’m on a roll here bringing you yet another Friends’ Faves recipe.  The challenge – baking potatoes.  Can you make this without a conventional oven Christine asked?  I’m confident was my response. I have ‘baked’ potatoes before – my favourite being the Salted Baked Potatoes and Roasted Garlic (recipe here), and another potato favourite in my galley is Potato Stacks – an elegant way to serve the lowly potato (recipe here).  But as you might have figured out by now,…

JENNY’S HONEY MUSTARD CHICKEN

JENNY’S HONEY MUSTARD CHICKEN

Well this is fun!  I put out feelers on my last post to ask my Galley Peeps to challenge me in my teeny tiny kitchen.  Calling it my Friends’ Faves series.  Barb’s Sweet Potato Soup was a big hit (recipe here). One of my peeps reached out with this awesomely delicious and super easy chicken recipe.  Can you re-create this in your stove top oven she asked?  Heck yeh!  I even went a step further than I usually do and…

BARB’S SWEET POTATO SOUP

BARB’S SWEET POTATO SOUP

I love it when friends share their yummy recipes and this one is certainly going on my regular rotation.  Super easy to make with lots of healthy ingredients.  We have guests coming soon so this will be the perfect dish to stash away in the freezer for an impromptu meal along with my go-to biscuit recipe after a day of site seeing (recipe for biscuits here: CALLIE’S CHEESEY BISCUITS)   It’s not necessary, but roasting the veggies adds lots of extra…

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…
