NOT-SO-NOODLEY TUNA CASSEROLE

NOT-SO-NOODLEY TUNA CASSEROLE

We came back from a recent visit to the doctor with orders for one of us (no names will be mentioned) to cut back on white potatoes, white bread, white rice and pasta.  A 25% cut back he said. So this Galley Kat got to searching through the recipe data base, the pantry and refrigerator to find options for tonight’s supper.  Well!!! Do I ever have a good one to share with you, my Peeps! I found half a cabbage…

EASY CHEESY FAUX-TATO CASSEROLE

EASY CHEESY FAUX-TATO CASSEROLE

Today’s post is all about the cauliflower. So many things can be made with this unassuming vegetable. I think it’s OK to call a vegetable unassuming. One of my favourites is to use it to make a faux alfredo sauce which I mix in with my Three Cheese Hash Brown Casserole (recipe here) And for a low carb alternative to a summery barbecue picnic type dish try using cauliflower in a salad instead of potatoes. (recipe here) Fresh cauliflower is…

STOVE TOP TUNA ORZO CASSEROLE

STOVE TOP TUNA ORZO CASSEROLE

I love the versatility of orzo pasta.  It’s one of those comfort foods that goes so well added to soups, salads, casseroles, cooks relatively quickly compared to rice yet gives a similar toothy texture.  I’ve used it many times while on the water because one little package goes a long way and takes up so little space.  One of my fave recipes I’ll share with you, was from a time before Sea Salt Galley Kat existed: recipe here Today’s recipe…

FURIKAKE GRILLED TUNA

FURIKAKE GRILLED TUNA

We were recently gifted with some tuna from our sailing/fishing friends and wanted to put together something worthy of their generosity. In my search, I landed on what looked like a winner from The Domestic Man.  Simple, very quick to prepare and cook, plus I was introduced to a new-to-me seasoning, Furikake, a combination of sesame seeds and nori seaweed.  Well, I thought to myself, I can make my own, which is what I did. All this to say, my…

EASY FISH TOSTADAS

EASY FISH TOSTADAS

I’ve been trying to come up with ideas for easy meals that can be made with what we have on hand in the galley. Sort of like tossing my Foodie Dice. It’s a fun way to plan meals and is certainly a creative exercise. From time to time I toss my dice (read all about ‘playing with my food’ here) and from time to time I just wing it. Today I winged it..wung it…(whatever the past tense of the verb…

MASHED POTATO KALE CAKES with ROUILLE

MASHED POTATO KALE CAKES with ROUILLE

Let’s talk about leftovers. You know by now that I am a big fan of cooking once and eating twice. It just makes so much economical sense to me: Less fuel used Less planning Less work Fewer shopping trips to the market with fewer temptations Overall, less time taken. Leftovers may also be a nasty not-really-four-letter-word for some. !BORING! With a little imagination though I believe one can turn leftovers into some very creative meals. Look at what I did…

CAPTAIN COOKS – Soya Ginger Marinated Tuna

CAPTAIN COOKS – Soya Ginger Marinated Tuna

Be still my little Galley Kat heart! François asked: “Can we do another Captain Cooks blog post?” He plans it. He shops for the ingredients. He prepares it. AND… He even cleans up! Could there be any other answer than YES!!!? The following is the latest of his galley creations, always made (he says with a wink) with a ‘secret ingredient’ (don’t worry, I took the photos so I know what it is and promise not to leave it out)…

44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE – #11

44 CLASSIC FRENCH MEALS YOU NEED TO TRY BEFORE YOU DIE – #11

I’m back to picking away at my 44 Classics… this time Tartare… Several years ago now, we were lucky to have the chance to spend a month in Paris. I ordered Boeuf Tartare no less six times And each time the seasonings and presentation were different… different but delicious… ….this, from a little bistro and the portions were monstrous. With this next one I’m going to cheat a bit and offer you my favourite recipe for Tuna Tartare… (I’m more…

PRESSURE COOKER TOMATO PASTA with TUNA & CAPERS

Here I go again with the cold weather food, but I am really excited to find out just what this pretty little appliance is capable of… I am also trying to compile a data base of healthy tastey meals with minimal ingredients that require no refrigeration, as these make for good back-up options should we be away from fresh markets for periods of time.   Tomato Pasta with Tuna & Capers 2 garlic cloves, sliced 2 tbsp olive oil 15…
