CARROT and HALLOUMI BURGERS

CARROT and HALLOUMI BURGERS

Hi everyone,  thanks for dropping by… I’ve been a busy busy Galley Kat this week with projects, both indoors and out, screaming to be attacked.  I did, however take the time to write up today’s offering for you… a trifecta of deliciousness… and all plant-based to boot. Tasty veggie packed burger mixture with the added protein punch of crunchy quinoa and salty halloumi….a smearing of home made hummus….and a spicy crispy slaw to round it all out. The carrot mixture…

SHRIMP and SWEET POTATO CURRY

SHRIMP and SWEET POTATO CURRY

Several weeks ago now, my eldest son, his beautiful wife and their darling newest addition to the family visited us. As with most of our get-togethers it was all too brief so we packed in as much quality time as possible.  Those moments, both past and present, when we are gathered together for meals, are what so many great family memories are made of and the meal that my daughter-in-law made for us one particular evening will remain as one…

GAZPACHO ANDALUZ

GAZPACHO ANDALUZ

Spicy heat with a creamy texture Gazpacho is a wonderfully refreshing soup served chilled. Perfect on a hot day when you just don’t want to heat up your galley or kitchen. I used a habanero pepper but to tone down the spicy heat, you could omit altogether or use something farther down on the Scoville Scale of pepper heat: GAZPACHO ANDALUZ 4 servings 2-3 lbs of tomatoes 2-3 mini cucumbers 1 green pepper 1 small red onion (or 3-4 red…

FIREY ROASTED CHICK PEAS

FIREY ROASTED CHICK PEAS

Chick peas are a staple onboard R.E.D. I kept several cans with us last year and used them in salads and stir-fries. Easy and healthy. For this next one why not break out your pressure cooker and within 40 – 45 minutes you can have a good quantity at a fraction of the cost of canned.     FIREY ROASTED CHICK PEAS 2-3 cups cooked chick peas 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp smoke paprika 1 tsp garlic powder 1…

AHI CHOMBO (Panamanian Hot Sauce)

AHI CHOMBO (Panamanian Hot Sauce)

So remember when I said that Costa Rican food isn’t particularily spicy? …well they do serve some very hot stuff on the side. The two women whose home we visited and with whom we enjoyed a typical Costa Rican meal, also prepared a homemade Ahi Chombo (literally ‘black pepper’)… …a golden looking sauce, somewhat resembling a pico de gallo (salsa) but more finely processed. I added a bit of it with the Gallo Pinto (black beans and rice). Yep! very…

SPICY CHIA STRAWBERRY JAM

SPICY CHIA STRAWBERRY JAM

Considering all of the apparent health benefits of chia seeds, and the relative ease and success of my chocolate chia pudding (link), I decided to translate these little miracles into a spicy jam. …just a few simple ingredients… …takes less time and effort than traditional jam… …and we get the added health benefits… We aren’t big jam eaters but a touch of this spicy ‘confiture’ with a little bit of cheese on a little bit of bread… (link to making…
