Southwestern Chopped Chicken Salad

Share

I love a good chopped salad that you can eat as a main course. I adore all of the fresh ingredients and  that the recipes tend to be very forgiving. You can toss in a little more of this or a little less than that without jeopardizing anything. You can even swap ingredients. For example, […]

White Bean Burgers with Tomato-Olive Relish

Share

Well, this isn’t the best photo, but these burgers are really terrific! They’re one of the best veggie burgers I’ve made in a while. They’re big on flavor and they have great structural integrity. They taste Italian. The relish is also a tasty addition.

I made these the other night for dinner guests and there wasn’t […]

Drunk Lentils with Arugula

Share

One of our dear neighbors had to go on a sudden trip and dropped off some of his fresh produce with us. He gave us a bag of arugula, among other things. I like arugula, but I don’t buy it much. Not sure why. I should. I love its peppery flavor. Did you know that […]

Braised Coconut Spinach and Chickpeas with Lemon

Share

We try to have meatless Mondays in our home and last Monday was no exception. It makes my son the vegetarian very happy. He never likes to eat things like this, he’s just happy that we’re not hurting any animals.

I am always drawn to recipes that stew vegetables in coconut milk. Yum! I made a […]

Macaroni and Cheese with Black Beans and Chipotle

Share

This is my new, favorite macaroni and cheese recipe.   I could eat this every day for a week without getting sick of it, and I almost have, considering I made a lot of it and the boys won’t touch it.   It’s great fresh from the stove, and it’s great as a leftover as well.  When […]

Spicy Grilled Corn Salad with Black Beans and Feta

Share

This is one of those delicious summer salads that don’t photograph well.  Don’t be deceived – this tastes incredible.  This is one of my favorite salads this summer.   If you’re a chipotle/adobo fan and you have a barbecue, give this a shot.   It’s easy to throw together, and you can make it in advance.   The […]

Pinto Bean and Quinoa Sloppy Joes

Share

In my continued quest to find meals other than PB&J that my vegetarian son will eat, I came across this recipe for vegetarian Sloppy Joes.    I have very fond memories of eating them for lunch in my elementary school cafeteria.  Sloppy Joe day was one of my favorites.

These vegetarian Sloppy Joes are nothing like the […]

Roasted Patty Pan Squash with Herbed White Beans

Share

They distributed patty pan squash for a couple of weeks at the CSA, and I didn’t know what to do with them.   They have always reminded me of little spaceships, and I have avoided them until this summer.    David Lapham, a personal chef from NYC who volunteers his time at our CSA cooked […]

Purslane Bean Salad

Share

OK, this should be my final purslane post for the summer. Even if my CSA continues to distribute it, I’ll make this salad again or one of other two recipes that I recently posted.

This salad has a surprising amount of flavor. I ate several servings and enjoyed every bite.

This salad takes a little time to […]
