JOAN’S VEGAN PITA BREAD

JOAN’S VEGAN PITA BREAD

There was something about this recipe that had my husband saying..’this is THE ONE’…and I’m not sure why. It’s not the vegan thing because my Frenchman is…well…French.. and loves anything bread-related no matter the ingredients.  I think it was the texture…smooth with a little chew and there is a new technique I’ve learned to make the pita separate in the centre, perfect for filling with my favourite  chickpea sandwich mix.  Or maybe it’s simply that I’m getting so much better…

MELANIE’S MEATLESS ‘MEATLOAF’

MELANIE’S MEATLESS ‘MEATLOAF’

Melanie’s Meatless ‘Meatloaf’!  How’s that for alliteration?  I swear I don’t pair reader’s submissions with names of the recipes.  It really was Melanie who sent me her meatless meatloaf recipe…which by the way is also gluten free, grain free and egg free…as well as being, of course, meat free.  This new trend, shall I call it, on Sea Salt Galley Kat, has sparked some very interesting vegan/vegetarian recipes for me to try…and couldn’t we all benefit from less animal protein…

AMANDA’S FAKIN’ BACON

AMANDA’S FAKIN’ BACON

This meatless journey just keeps getting better and better.  But with this next recipe, I may have finally been stumped as far as being able to reproduce it in my little oven-less galley. My first batch of Fakin’ Bacon was a huge success done in a conventional land oven.  The rice paper you use isn’t important but I found the square sheets meant less waste and it was easier to create a more authentic bacon look.  Super crunchy and oh…

JESSE’S VEGAN MAYONNAISE

JESSE’S VEGAN MAYONNAISE

Remember when I posted about some diet changes we have been working on and how I suggested you save the juice (aka aquafaba) from canned chickpeas?  Well this next recipe from the same Galley Peep that sent me her fabulous falafel recipe  will make that wee effort worth your while.  Her recipe was a huge hit at a recent gathering (that recipe can be found here Jesses’s Fabulous Falafel). I tweaked her mayo recipe ever so slightly for a less…

MY PLANT-BASED JOURNEY & JESSIE’S FABULOUS FALAFEL

MY PLANT-BASED JOURNEY & JESSIE’S FABULOUS FALAFEL

We’ve recently made some changes to our diets.  I’m not exactly sure how to label it or if I should even be concerned about labels.  It’s our business after all…and it’s our bodies we’re filling…but dietary labels are a thing I guess, so let’s call it vegan (imagine me cringing here).  Nothing with a face or mother or their byproducts.  Apparently I can’t call it whole food or plant-based…or what’s the latest?…WFPB!…or the WFPBNO…because they exclude things like my awesome…

MUJADDARA

MUJADDARA

My guy likes pretty much everything I make.  He never complains about my frequent dalliance into the vegetarian, vegan world although I know he loves meaty dishes. But when I get an unsolicited comment like ‘this one’s a keeper Kathy’, I sit up and take notice. The flavours in this Mediterranean inspired dish are wonderful, the crispy fried onion the perfect complement and I think we have found a new favourite comfort food. If you are lucky enough to have…

LEMON CREAM PIE

LEMON CREAM PIE

No gluten! No dairy! No sugar! No cooking! No kidding! I’m not one to seek out specifically gluten/or dairy/ or sugar-free recipes but this one caught my attention.  I love anything lemon. It makes  a just enough. Perfect for my little spring form pan and tiny refrigerator. Perfect to serve for a small dinner gathering and perfect for the two of us for several days. But how could something this good, so lemony, so sweet, be healthy I had to…

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…

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 15 and 16

DIETARY REBOOT – Days 15 and 16

What an interesting journey this is turning out to be! It’s challenging me to create meals within certain parameters all the while staving off boredom. It does take a bit of extra work and for sure planning and prepping seems to be the key. Having a willing, enthusiastic and focused partner has kept me on track. So at the half way point of our Whole 3o Challenge on the menu board for today… Breakfast Prosciutto-Wrapped Mini Meatloaves I simply put…

AZIFA – SPICY ETHIOPIAN LENTIL SALAD

AZIFA – SPICY ETHIOPIAN LENTIL SALAD

If you, as with us, are at the over-consumption, all gobbled out and your bellies feeling like they may never be empty again stage of the holiday season, here’s an easy light salad packed with flavour and protein. A couple of years ago I stumbled onto an article about Teff, a tiny Ethiopian grain with an impressive nutritional profile, which led me to making some interesting African inspired vegan and vegetarian dishes. My recipe using teff here. This salad is…
