Something Long I can’t Pronounce

The name of this dish was something long and ridiculous in Indian that I’m pretty sure just translated to the names of some of the vegetables involved. “Minty Broccoli, Tomato and Cauliflower” or something along those lines. I got the recipe from the New Indian Vegetarian Cookbook. The real star of this dish was the [...]

Product Review : Bahama Burgers

These were new in the local health food store this week, and since they were on sale and offered up exciting looking flavors like pineapple-mango, and Mediterranean Medley, I decided to give them a shot. Long story short, they were GROSS. To start with, I was nuking one for my lunch (veggie burgers are usually [...]

Mac N’ Cheese Fritatta

I figured I’d share this with you…I took a large serving of the leftover mac n’cheese, broke it up in a bowl, and added 5 eggs. (I know, that’s a LOT of eggs). I mixed everything together and poured it into a well-greased skillet. It took 5 minutes on the stove to cook the bottom, [...]

Mac N Cheese

I’ve made the kraft stuff out of a box…I’ve made Annies white shells (way better) and I’ve made the Mac Daddy from V’con. (Good as a dish, but nothing like actual mac and cheese). I’ve never made the REAL stuff from scratch, and so this was my first attempt. I decided on the recipe in [...]

Daikon Greens and Rice

If you’d mentioned daikon greens yesterday, my response would have been…”daikon has greens?” I always buy my daikon with the top and bottom chopped off…a 6 inch tube of white radish…and while I could see it had been chopped…I never really knew or wondered what I was missing. I’d been having trouble getting my hands [...]

Roasted Chickpeas

I got this snack from Fat Free Vegan and knew I just had to try them. I used canned chickpeas, and made the lime-chili powder combination. I ended up burning them a bit…while SusanV says they should cook 50-55 minutes, I took mine out a bit late at 45…40 minutes would do these fine. Other [...]

Pumpkin with Fenugreek

I’ve been wanting to try cooking with pumpkin forever…mostly because I’ve never seen them made into anything but pie, and I felt they must have a greater potential. Well I was right…pumpkin as a savory dish is delicious…quite possibly among my favorite squashes. (Which reminds me, I’ve been craving spaghetti squash; the texture is quite [...]

Naan Pizza

In an effort to work through all the naan from yesterday, today’s dinner was naan-leftover pizza. On mine, I had the remainder of the plain yogurt, minced garlic, sliced tomato, oil-cured olives, and crumbled vegetable balls. It’s weird, I know, and I probably wouldn’t recommend it, unless you have very strange taste like me. Naan [...]

Challah Bread Pudding

Since I’m on a roll with the high-fat cooking (Just so you know…I’ve spent more than enough time in the gym the last couple days to counterbalance) I decided to make the remaining challah into bread pudding. I used the recipe found at the Amish Kitchen and while my thighs may not appreciate it, my [...]

Veggie Balls, Curry Sauce, and Naan

This was another Indian-inspired meal, the main course of which came from the “American Indian Cookbook” as well. I’d decided I really wanted to make the ‘vegetable balls in classic curry sauce’, mostly because the name sounded kind of amusing. In the end I decided not to finish the balls in the sauce, I was [...]
