The humble zucchini gets a lovely make-over in this beautiful lasagne. It is impressive enough to serve to guests, but easy enough to make for your family on a busy night, as it does not require you to pre-boil your lasagne noodles. I keep one in my freezer "just in case".
It makes a filling supper when coupled with a salad - the meat-eaters in your life won't even notice it's vegetarian!
I made this for dinner tonight for my girlfriend, who is totally and completely obsessed with two things: The musical, "Rent" and jalapenos. It is nice and spicy, completely vegetarian and might even make a nice side dish for meat eaters. It is super easy to make and it gave me something to do with the gallons of fresh salsa we've made from our garden veggies this season.
Prep time does not include time to chill the torte.
A great way to enjoy an old favorite, minus the chicken! Frozen, cubed tofu is used to mimic the chicken and impart protien into this wonderful, cold-chasing soup. Easy enough for a beginner chef, too.
A nutty springtime risotto with peas, corn and young onions prominently featured. Brown rice is used instead of arborio rice to add a bit of protein and fiber (this also cuts down on the amount of time spent stirring, for which risotto has become so notorious). It also provides that wonderful toothy texture that good risotto should always provide. It is delicious and sure to impress!
Most of the time for this recipe is passive cook time.
A light, refreshing Lebonese salad. Don't be fooled by the long list of ingredients - this is super easy and comes together in a snap! It's wonderful in the summertime and makes a great addition to a BBQ menu.
Yes, I did. A dark, rich twist on traditional Japanese teriyaki. I know it sounds weird, but you'll have to try it...it's a big hit over beef, pork or mushroom dishes or try it over a crock pot full of meatballs.
We've gotten so much broccoli from the CSA we belong to this year! I kept cutting it up and freezing it, but it has taken over the freezer and is starting to fill the fridge! Lucky for me, I whipped together this simple dinner - it's easy enough for a beginner, delicous and full of protein for the vegetarians in your life!
