Oven-Roasted Cauliflower with Garlic, Olive Oil and Lemon Juice

Share

This is my new favorite way to make cauliflower. I wouldn’t say it’s a summer dish because you have to heat your oven to 500 degrees F, which can make your kitchen warm in the summer heat, but it’s a perfect fall dish when the weather gets nippy.

Don’t be fooled by the directions, you do […]

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 […]

Mesa Grill's Southwestern Potato Salad

If you like Southwestern flavors and you like potato salads that have a mayonnaise base, this potato salad is for you!   This is a nice change from your traditional potato salad.  It has some nice smoky warmth from the chipotle puree and the cayenne.   As with most potato salad recipes I’ve made, this makes A […]

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 […]

Crispy Quinoa Sliders

These are perfect for a meatless Monday dinner. You can serve these on buns just like you’d serve a hamburger, with all the classic condiments – lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mayonnaise, etc. You can also serve them as a side dish if you’re not having a meatless meal. I ate mine without a bun and with […]

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 […]

Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup with Smoky Caprese Panini

Share

It’s a cold and rainy night in NYC.  A good night to stay inside.  It’s the kind of night where I’d get a roaring fire going if we had a fireplace.  I’ve mentioned before that one of my sons won’t eat meat because he can’t stand the thought of hurting an animal, so we’ve been […]

Ultimate Shepherd's Pie

The weather has been a little wacky in NYC this month. We had some unseasonably warm weather in March. Unfortunately that didn’t continue in April, which has been quite cold. After March, I thought I’d be able to put our winter clothes away. No such luck. Anyway, I mention the weather because I made this […]
