ZUCCHINI QUINOA PATTIES with LEMON YOGURT SAUCE

ZUCCHINI QUINOA PATTIES with LEMON YOGURT SAUCE

A vegetarian dish for Meatless Monday… This is a bit of a cheat because it is unlikely that I would take the time to cook the quinoa on the boat to make this dish (just one burner, remember?) …I could – just more work and more pots to wash. But I quite often would cook grains ahead of time at home and bring a good supply onboard for such an occasion.       Zucchini Quinoa Patties with Lemon Yogurt…

THREE CHEESE HASH BROWN CASSEROLE

THREE CHEESE HASH BROWN CASSEROLE

Several months ago I found an interesting post from one of my favourite bloggers, Lindsay of A Pinch of Yum. She had created a recipe for Creamy Cauliflower Sauce which she transformed into a delicious rich-tasting Alfredo-like concoction without the scary calories and fat content.   I made it this summer at home, stashed some in the freezer, and took the rest onboard for an evening meal. For you lucky boaters who have a blender onboard this would be an…

GINGER GLAZED MAHI MAHI

…A few simple on-hand ingredients make this grilled fish unforgetable… …some EVO, balsamic vinegar, some Bragg soya seasoning (or soya sauce), Buckwheat honey, fresh garlic and grated ginger is all that’s needed… I found a way to keep ginger on hand without it going furry or soggy in a humid boat environment by peeling, slicing and imersing in a container of sherry or vodka. The ginger stays crisp indefinitely (in my kitchen/galley it never lasts long enough for me to…
