Dinner plate

Tried something new. I started with a cookbook recipe, but it turned out a different way. Air fried cauliflower until golden brown on bar pan, added some water to steam until soft. I went this way because unlike the rustic look of the cauliflower (rather than just cream color). While the cauliflower was cooking I…

Cherry/peach galette

I went cherry picking for the first time ever! It was one of the hottest days, the pickings were slim, but I did it. What a rewarding experience. I used a store bought plant based pastry dough – best thing I ever bought. After putting the cherries (great therapy), I cut one peach – combined…

Lunch plate

Using up some things in the fridge. One of the best approaches to eating healthy for me – having a variety of items to choose from. I try to stock my fridge with the essentials (hummus, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese (goat or plant based), fruits and vegetables)) so I never get board. Today I…

My daughter and I have made the fig and arugula pizza before, so this was easy. It was trying my hand at the others…

I say Tabouli – you say Tabbouleh

Either way, it’s a Mediterranean dish made with bulgur wheat. When I don’t have bulgur wheat on hand, I buy the Near East Tabouleh grain mix. It comes with a season packet of dried parsley, onion, salt, garlic, molasses, honey, and black pepper. It very easy to prepare – pour the contents into a saucepan,…

Plant based BLT

One of my fondest memories working Downtown Boston was going to Dewey Square to get a sandwich from Clover. It was when the food truck first started in Boston. I fell in love with their BLT, while my friend would get this sandwich that had picked cabbage and pimento cheese. The sandwich I was addicted…
