I love green beans but I don’t like them the way my mom served them!! We pretty much ate them from a can, warmed up & then they got cold on the plate…and they were a bit mushy….. but I do like them roasted! Sautéed is ok but I prefer them roasted. A bit charred and delicious! This recipe from bon appetit, is unique & very tasty,
When I was young, we never ate fresh broccoli. I remember eating canned corn & the frozen mixed vegetables! I started making broccoli for my own family, boiling was the way to go! Well, that’s ok if you like boiled or steamed broccoli. Then it seemed roasting vegetables became the craze & thankfully so! I like roast all kinds of vegetables. Olive oil & a shrinking of salt is how I do it.
My good friend gave me this recipe over 20 years ago I’m sure. That is one of the funny things about getting older…. I have been making certain foods for so long, I don’t remember when I started making them! At least I remember the recipe! I am not THAT old!!!
Fresh green beans, cooked tender crisp & eaten cold with soft pickled onions. This is a great side dish or salad…your choice. I served this as a side dish, but I think it would be good served as part of an appetizer course for dinner. I follow a great food blog called loveandumami. The recipe for pickled onions is from there. I made them mostly … Continue reading Green Bean Salad with Pickled Red Onions
When I was a kid, I loved kishke. Then one day I made the mistake of asking my mom what it was. HA.. For those of you who don’t know, kishke is a stuffed section of cow intestines, I thought it was kind of chewy! The stuffing is made of bread crumbs or flour, onion, carrots, celery & spices. Well, I have not eaten kishke … Continue reading Vegetarian Kishke

Wow!! This was so good. It was just as good (almost) as fried rice with rice!! The benefit of this is that we didn’t feel guilty about taking seconds and thirds!! I used a recipe from bestrecipebox.com as the base for this cauliflower rice. I made some changes which I will put here but I am including the link to the original recipe for you … Continue reading Cauliflower Fried Rice

Looking for a side dish the other night I found this recipe. It is delish! I changed the sweetener from sugar to maple syrup and it was really good. The fruit I added was … Continue reading Quinoa Pilaf with Dried Fruits
My mom used to make almost anything that was ground up into a fried delicious patty, which she called kokletin (yiddish). The three types she would make most often were with ground beef: canned salmon: and cooked cauliflower, way before cauliflower was trendy!!! They were always served with mashed potatoes and a variety of canned vegetables whatever was in the cupboard …no pantry in our house! The only difference … Continue reading Cauliflower Kokletin (patties)

I follow The Nosher from the website My Jewish Learning. I find that most of their recipes really work out and are very tasty. Cauliflower recipes are everywhere and I actually try many of them. This one has a roasted garlic tahini sauce which is different then my usual tahini sauce. The addition of the roasted garlic to the tahini sauce adds a hint of sweetness. If you are … Continue reading Cauliflower Steaks With Tahini and Pine Nuts – The Nosher
