Vegetable Torte

This is a wonderful recipe for a layered vegetable torte. This is the perfect time of year to make it with all of the fresh vegetables available at farmers markets, but it would be good anytime of year. You can grill the vegetables or roast them before putting this dish together so it is pretty…

Baked Pasta with Ricotta Cheese

Kind of like lasagna, but only in that it is a cheesy baked pasta dish topped with mozzarella cheese & a sprinkle of parmesan…..vegetarian & delicious!

Eggplant with Kale & Yogurt

Another recipe from Bon Appetit! This time it is for roasted eggplant, crispy kale, tomatoes & yogurt! We ate this just as is  without anything else, but it would be excellent in a pita with some hummus…some falafel… with some fish….rolled up in a wrap… the possibilities are endless!

Vegetarian Burgers with Mushrooms & Black Beans

I saw this recipe on Bon Appetit, it is one of their BA’s Best. There are a lot of ingredients in this recipe & I had most of them at home. I did have to substitute some things. Full of vegetables & black beans, this burger is delicious & even a die-hard meat-eater would like…

Roasted Broccoli with Tahini Sauce

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…

Purple Cabbage Slaw

I picked up a beautiful purple cabbage at my local farmers market. It is small which is just the right size for Murray & I

Passover Egg Noodles *** use all year!

A wonderful woman gave me this recipe many years ago. She lives in Vancouver now & I miss seeing her. She is about 90 years old now, was a friend of my moms & I am friends with her daughter. I think of her every time I make these egg noodles. It isn’t really “noodles”…

Baba Ganoush

As with Hummus, there are so many recipes for Baba Ganoush & I pretty much like all of them. Some are made with mayonnaise which I really like but the one that I have been making lately uses tahini.  Very quick & simple, delicious & healthy. If you can not eat tahini, add mayonnaise in its…

Vegetarian Kishke

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!

Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut

This recipe is from the Cooking New York Times. It is delicious. The recipe calls for cutting up some red onion & kale, sautéing it & adding it to the soup as a garnish. This was good, but in the future I might just eat the soup without the kale/onion. Both of these were good…

Black Bean, Corn & Cheese Enchiladas

This recipe is from November 2014 from the website MyRecipes.com. It was in my vegetarian mailbox where I have many recipes that I want to try! I will put the link to the original recipe here but I changed it up quite a bit! There were a few issues that I found with the original…
