LOU’S ROASTED CAULIFLOWER with MUSHROOM SAUCE

LOU’S ROASTED CAULIFLOWER with MUSHROOM SAUCE

I’m getting all fancy with my veggies in the galley today.  Not time consuming fancy.  Nor am I using weird and wonderful ingredients.  But by the time I finished making, then consuming this ultra-delicious dish, it felt very fancified.  I even poured us a glass of crisp white wine to go with to feel extra fancy pants fancy. A lowly head of cauliflower, a package of mushrooms were the main ingredients.  The most ‘exotic’ ingredient was miso paste which you…

HADDOCK MILANESE with DEVILED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

I’m back!  Did you miss me?  I’ve been so involved with my new project (details to come soon I promise) that I almost forgot about my Galley Peeps.  So sorry. I promise to be more attentive in the future.  As an apology  I’m offering a very easy and super tasty meal for you.  A two for one. The warm Brussels sprout salad could easily be a stand alone.   The crispy salty crunch of the charred sprouts leaves kept me…

EAST COAST HODGE PODGE with SEAFOOD

EAST COAST HODGE PODGE with SEAFOOD

How can you resist all the fresh produce these days?  I certainly couldn’t on a recent trip to our local farmers’ market.  A big bunch of carrots, new potatoes, fresh green and yellow beans, some shelled peas made the base of one of my favourite East Coast dishes.   Hodge Podge is a sort of soup, sort of stew depending if you make it thickened or more milky (my recipe for basic hodge podge here)   Tonight though, I went…

CHANKO NABE (Sumo Stew)

Ah, the wonderful holiday season when we share all that the season has to offer….including the dreaded virus.  We returned from our wonderful family travels with hearts full and noses dripping.  Luckily we had provisioned well and menues were planned with easy healthy meals for holiday down time. I had made an extra batch of my Asian meatlballs (Pork meatball recipe link here) and happened to have some shrimp leftover from a little cocktail get-together (recipe for Thai Shrimp here) so…

DOWN EAST HODGE PODGE

DOWN EAST HODGE PODGE

SALT and VINEGAR POTATOES

SALT and VINEGAR POTATOES

I love a salt and vinegar combination, especially when it comes to potatoes. Don’t get me going on my past salt and vinegar potato chip binge sessions. But back to the present and a healthier me. Recently I discovered I could get that perfect tangy taste by par-boiling some little taters in vinegar and salt.   …then crisp those taters up a bit in some oil and butter… SALT & VINEGAR POTATOES about 4 servings or enough for some leftovers…

EASY ZUCCHINI SPREAD

EASY ZUCCHINI SPREAD

With all the wonderful produce available in the local markets it’s difficult to choose which to bring onboard. Afterall, I can’t have it all no matter what with limited space and refrigeration This week I chose zucchini. Two large zucchini and a couple of green onions formed the base. Grating them gave me about 4 cups of zucchini. Treating it to a good sprinkling of sea salt, then squeezing as much juice out as possible considerably cut down on the…

I make these tasty crunchy pancakes often… Vegetarian or with meat added they are an easy fix at home or on the water.

CHEESE FONDUE

CHEESE FONDUE

First official vacation day… Not the most welcoming weather… chilly, rainy, windy… so instead of grilliing something on the barbecue outside in the cockpit, I decided to fondue… so simple, even when made from scratch… Just add some good bread, crispy veggies, maybe a few slices of pear or apple and you’re good to go. The following is my favourite cheese fondue recipe… (but I cheated tonight and warmed up this easier ready-made version) (just perfect for two) (just open…

CRISPY KALE

CRISPY KALE

I needed the kale to top a pasta dish but ‘sans’ oven onboard I would normally have to do without. It is possible that it could be done with a grill sheet on the bbq so will give it a try once R.E.D. is in the water again and let you know…             CRISPY KALE 4 cups of kale leaves 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil (again with the sesame…) 4 tbsp finely grated Romano cheese…
