MUJENDRA (Cypriot rice and lentils)

This week I’m in plant-based heaven again.  I was enjoying a weekend morning cocooning in bed doing catch-up on some reading while having the TV on for some background noise and what do I hear?…’leftovers’?  Got my attention it did. The recipe had a name very similar to something I made for you a while ago…MUJADDARA which is what it’s called in Middle Eastern culinary circles. […]

HOT and SOUR SMOTHERED CABBAGE and RICE SOUP

Good day to you my Galley Friends.  So nice of you to drop by.  I have for you my next recipe using Smothered Cabbage and it’s really a no brainer.  Too easy..as in, I basically dumped everything into a pot, simmered a bit, then served a bowl or two of delicious, nicely spiced Asian-style soup for today’s supper.  What made it even easier is that […]

CHICKPEA STEW with CORNBREAD DUMPLINGS

As promised, here’s my recipe for delicious Chickpea Stew and Cornbread Dumplings.  For this quantity you can half my Corn Meal Muffin recipe which should give you room for eight or nine dumplings.  The results are very much like chicken pot pie without the chicken. Another time I did add some cooked chicken leftover from Christmas that I had stashed away in the freezer but […]

Hi all you Galley Peeps.  There has been so much going on in our lives at the moment, namely the sale of our sailboat R.E.D. (story here).  It’s thrown a curve ball at us that impacts so much of who we are and what we have been doing up to now.  Sea Salt Galley Kat was born out of our love for sailing and for […]

GALLEY CREAM OF ‘WHATEVER’ SOUP

Hi there my Galley folks. Are you still isolating these days or has life begun to open up for you?  I’m still practicing my distancing. I still haven’t stepped into a store since early March and have not minded it at all.  A lot of people are finding it difficult but this time away from ‘normal’ has made me more reflective and I’m using it […]

Several birthdays to celebrate […]

OCTOBER RECIPE ROUND-UP

Hi all you Galley Kat Peeps. I thought that this month instead of a collection of your most viewed recipes, I’d re-post my favourite chowder recipes. Last week’s post of Fisherman’s Stew was one of your most searched of my little galley recipes this month (you can find that recipe here). Is it maybe because the time of year with changing leaves, crisp cool days […]

CHILLED RHUBARB STRAWBERRY SOUP

What do cucumbers, strawberries and rhubarb have in common?  Yes, two of them are vegetables smarty pants.  But when the three of them meet together with a touch of chocolate balsamic vinegar they become the makings of a very memorable fresh summery soup. This time of year we still depend on imported strawberries which tend to be large and watery and since chilling mutes flavours […]

SALMON and SWEET CORN STEW

 Having one of those days.  Don’t want to cook.  Don’t know what to cook even though I have a well planned database to choose from and a pantry and refrigerator fully stocked.  I just DON’T FEEL LIKE COOKING!!!  Let’s see what miracle I can pull from the cupboard.  Always conscious of a balanced meal…protein, vegetables and some carbohydrates…I find a can of salmon…I find a […]
