WILD RICE and MUSHROOM SOUP (pressure cooker version)

WILD RICE and MUSHROOM SOUP (pressure cooker version)

Isn’t this the time of year for soups?  Belly warming, rich, flavourful soups.  And to be honest, when it comes to galley prep, I’m lazy.  That’s what’s so appealing about living with restrictions…both in what’s available and environment.  No one expects fancy pants elaborate meals when all you have to work with is a boat cooler and a one-burner alcohol-sometimes-with-electricity-fueled stove.  Some of the best and most memorable meals have been the ones that have been cooked in one pot…

MEATY MEATLESS ‘MEAT’ LOAF

MEATY MEATLESS ‘MEAT’ LOAF

Welcome to another creation for your next Meatless Monday, Galley Peeps.  It’s full of tasty mushroom morsels and nutty toothy texture all densely packed into one savoury loaf. I had some leftover wild and brown rice that I had cooked in the pressure cooker the other day so threw that in for extra oomph. And now that we are back on land for the next few months I have a little more space to keep pots of fresh herbs so…

Very pleased with the results of this belly-warming soup though… CREAMY LEMONY CHICKEN and WILD GRAIN SOUP 4 servings what you will need 2 tbsp butter 1 cup chopped onion 1 cup chopped celery 1 cup…

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),…

QUICK VEGAN ASIAN “BEEF”

QUICK VEGAN ASIAN “BEEF”

TVP or textured vegetable protein has turned out to be a very useful addition to our boat provisioning since it doesn’t require refrigeration (our little cooler space is at a premium). I don’t use it often but it is a great stand-in when a quick meal is required… and I mean quick… (see link to my vegan boat chili)   …once hydrated the TVP has the appearance of ground chicken or turkey and takes on the flavours of whatever seasoning…
