LENTIL POTATO BAKE

LENTIL POTATO BAKE

Hello Galley Folks.  I’ve been working on some not-so-meaty dishes for you.  I try to strike a balance between animal/fish protein and more plant-based meals at least 3 times each week with a soup or chowder meal thrown into the mix.  Plus I know that in a few days we will be so turkey-ed out that we’ll need a little belly break.  This very repeatable and shareable dish fits in perfectly with a good comfort food vibe. I used chicken…

JULY RECIPE ROUND-UP

JULY RECIPE ROUND-UP

So you’ve been entertaining this month have you?  Well, according to July stats you have.  Quite heavily in fact in the appetizer category.  We have too.  With visits from near and far and a spectacular neighbourhood house warming, I’ve been a very busy Galley Kat. Top of the list was this tasty recipe for zucchini and chicken bites.  I guess some of you must already be harvesting zucchini from your gardens.  Lucky you! Number two on your July faves was…

JUNE RECIPE ROUND-UP

JUNE RECIPE ROUND-UP

Since I’ve been posting these recipe round-ups it’s been fun watching the patterns of the most popular searches and boy oh boy you guys have been grilling and from what I can tell camping/RV’ing/boating up a storm.  It’s all about the barbecue and Omnia cooking this month.  Not to exclude you who are without the little stove-top miracle of an oven because you know I will always give you options for conventional land-based ovens but it’s obvious by the number…

FRESH TOMATO, ZUCCHINI and HALLOUMI BAKE

FRESH TOMATO, ZUCCHINI and HALLOUMI BAKE

Here I am with another yummy fresh tomato recipe.  This time I baked them topped with Halloumi cheese in my little Omnia stove top oven. I suppose I could have made it a one pot wonder but tonight I was feeling cavalier and used a saucepan to simmer the tomato mixture.  Two pots to clean up – oh what a reckless Galley Kat I am! My galley cookware takes so little cleaning up that it was worth using. Once the…

CAPTAIN COOKS WARM POTATO and ZUCCHINI SALAD with SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP

CAPTAIN COOKS WARM POTATO and ZUCCHINI SALAD with SPICY GRILLED SHRIMP

It’s been far too long since I did a Captain Cooks post and what better way to kick off summer than with one of his yummy grilling recipes.  This one is so easy and the best part for she-who-is-in-charge-of-the-galley is there were so few dishes to wash up after…just one serving bowl, our dinner plates, forks and knives.  Oh, and Captain’s wine glass.  Can’t flip without a sip. The quantity of veggies and shrimp depends entirely on your appetite but…

ZUCCHINI CHICKEN BITES

ZUCCHINI CHICKEN BITES

 With all that’s been going on (condo selling and spring boat stuff) we probably haven’t been eating as well as we should.  Stopping to pick up some fast food breakfast in the morning so we don’t mess up the kitchen for home showings and frozen pizza for supper (no excuse there., just didn’t feel like cooking).  Could be partly the reason for all the colds/flu/pneumonia/bronchitis, three rounds of antibiotics and trips to the doctor the past five months. And for…

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE ZUCCHINI MUFFINS with SWEET POTATO CHOCOLATE FROSTING

DOUBLE CHOCOLATE ZUCCHINI MUFFINS with SWEET POTATO CHOCOLATE FROSTING

You read that right – Sweet Potato Frosting and it was spoon-lickin’ yummy.  And just two ingredients.  Where else can you marry rich dark chocolate and a vegetable and call it healthy.  The muffins also were packed with veggies…and rich dark chocolate…and so moist! Super easy to throw together once all the ingredients were gathered.  Dry ingredients all stirred or sifted to make sure there were no lumps, then the wet stuff was folded into the dry.  Lastly I folded…

SUMMER VEGETABLE TIAN

SUMMER VEGETABLE TIAN

I made this vegetarian dish in my little galley Omnia Stove Top Oven but it is traditionally made in a conventional oven.  And because I felt lazy today, it was hot and we were at anchor and it had been a very long day and I didn’t want a lot of washing up, I decided to sauté the onion and garlic directly in the Omnia cooking pan instead of a sauté pan.  Worked our very well, I said patting myself…

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…

CHICKEN ZUCCHINI CORN BURGERS with TANGY YOGURT SAUCE

CHICKEN ZUCCHINI CORN BURGERS with TANGY YOGURT SAUCE

Our days are getting warmer Galley Peeps of the north, and I’ve officially put away my cold weather recipe mentality. There will still room for the occational cocooning comfort dish, but my almost-ready-for-flip-flops-boating-and-barbecuing-self is salivating for something to throw on the grill. CHICKEN ZUCCHINI CORN BURGERS makes 6 burgers 1 lb ground chicken 1 cup grated zucchini 1/2 cup corn niblets 1/2 red pepper, finely chopped 3 green onion, finely sliced 3 garlic cloves, minced 1 egg 1/2 cup panko…
