SPAGHETTI SQUASH AGLIO e OLIO with SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP

SPAGHETTI SQUASH AGLIO e OLIO with SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP

In keeping with our Whole30 reset, I made a typical pasta dish for tonight’s dinner using spaghetti squash to replace the ‘forbidden for now’ grain,  and since spaghetti squash is rather bland on its own, I spiced it up with some very zesty grilled shrimp and lots of garlic. I also omitted the Parmesan as per Whole30 regs but it would have added another layer of flavour.  Another thing I learned about spaghetti squash is that to get the longest…

LENTIL MUSHROOM SHEPHERD’S PIE

LENTIL MUSHROOM SHEPHERD’S PIE

Captain Francois’ comment about tonight’s supper: “If this is vegetarian, you can make it for me anytime!”  Healthy, meatless and really easy to throw together, I made it stove-top in my Omnia Oven. A little sautéing, a splash of wine and some seasonings. The addition of some greens, then packed into a baking dish, topped with potatoes and in just a few minutes it was ready to enjoy.  Sprinkle with grated cheese and bread crumbs before baking if you wish…

BULGAR SPINACH CHEESE BURGERS

BULGAR SPINACH CHEESE BURGERS

There are so many great recipes out there for delicious vegetarian meals that I can’t remember the last time I actually cooked a meal with meat… fish, yes but no animal has been sacrificed in my galley for ages. Captain hasn’t complained either, although he doesn’t complain, ever. He once told me that if someone goes to the trouble of preparing a meal for him, he should be appreciative of the effort… And really Galley Peeps, between you and me,…

SWEET POTATO PATTIES with CURRIED YOGURT SAUCE

SWEET POTATO PATTIES with CURRIED YOGURT SAUCE

We love our sweet taters. So rich in fibre! …and this recipe with the added yogurt sauce is perfect adding great flavour and apparently the addition of a little fat will aid in the uptake of all that good orange beta-carotene. They also make an easy appetizer or snack. Just make little two inch crispy potato medallions with a touch of sauce on the side.     SWEET POTATO PATTIES   1 large sweet potato, peeled and grated 1/2 tsp…

TEFF, RED LENTIL & BULGAR STEW

TEFF, RED LENTIL & BULGAR STEW

I’m all about trying new things especially when it comes to reducing consumption of animal protein so when I found a bag of Teff at our local market a while ago, I thought it worth a try. Lots of positive advantages: quick cooking (less fuel used) easy to store (takes up very little space, no refrigeration required) good nutritional profile (gluten-free, good source of iron, Vitamin C, protein and calcium (good for the old Galley Kat’s bones) Our recent visit…
