ADDICTIVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS with BACON and DATES

ADDICTIVE BRUSSELS SPROUTS with BACON and DATES

Did you ever think you would see ’addictive’ and ‘Brussels sprouts’ coupled together.  Well, this might just be the recipe to tip all those sprout haters into sprout lovers.  Savoury and sweet all in the same dish with a little added crunch of charred Brussels sprouts, it makes the perfect side dish.  But today was to be one of our meatless days and I wanted this to be the main event so I added some crumbled bacon and quickly seared…

POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

POTATO CAULIFLOWER CURRY

My daughter invited us to dine with her a while ago and made the most delicious vegetarian meal.  The flavours for such a simple dish were so intense served with a side of fluffy rice and a few squares of crispy salty paneer, I just had to do a repeat performance for the two of us.  My husband, a meat lover, was amazed that a bowl of simple vegetables could be SO good. We had some leftovers so I mashed…

Garlicky White Bean, Artichoke and Broccoli

Garlicky White Bean, Artichoke and Broccoli

A very long day, our weekend guests  had just left and I really didn’t feel like turning around and making supper.  Where’s my glass of wine and foot stool?  I’ll just sit here while someone cooks. No offers? No, don’t get up, I take care of it (me walking toward the kitchen). This will have to be a ‘shop my pantry’ meal. I found one head of broccoli in the refrigerator wanting some attention. There was also a can of…

MEATY MEATLESS ‘MEAT’ LOAF

MEATY MEATLESS ‘MEAT’ LOAF

Welcome to another creation for your next Meatless Monday, Galley Peeps.  It’s full of tasty mushroom morsels and nutty toothy texture all densely packed into one savoury loaf. I had some leftover wild and brown rice that I had cooked in the pressure cooker the other day so threw that in for extra oomph. And now that we are back on land for the next few months I have a little more space to keep pots of fresh herbs so…

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…

GRILLED CARROT DOGS

GRILLED CARROT DOGS

Today’s recipe is a little weird, even for me.  I’m not vegetarian and certainly not vegan.  I do like meat from time to time and now that we are living on the east coast am loving the abundance of fresh fish and seafood sometimes literally at our back door. But I’m really intrigued by some nutirent-rich plant-based dishes.  I feel it’s good to learn more about how other healthy people prepare their meals and about the ingredient selection they make….
