I'm by your side here!
Why, thank you, cynwldkat, that's quite refreshing! I've gotten a lot of recipes and ideas from the meat section, just doesn't seem to be a huge difference to me. Like I said before, it's pretty easy to adjust any recipe to suit one's needs.

Nice of you to drop by with kind, adult thoughts!

As for dinner, just grazing earlier this evening: homemade oatmeal bread toast with dill relish (fresh & locally made), strawberries & blueberries (local farmers, too, thank you!), and I'm just about to have a glass of Syrah! Tomorrow I'll be giving Kele's Middle Eastern Stew a try. Keep posting those recipes, guys - they sound really good!

Have a good weekend, all~

Google or you-tube search "Gordon Ramsay recipes". He has two vids of a veg curry and a spagetti w/sauce w/no meat. The curry might have yogurt, though. I'm planning on make'n the curry tomorrow, w/a bit of a "twist" though.....well I don't have to tell you what I'll throw in.

They both look good, but then again he makes everything look good and easy.

They are out of his 15 min. meals book.

Last night, I served stuffed zucchini over cous cous.

I boiled 2 zucchini for just about 8 minutes. Sliced each in half and "gutted" the insides.

I sauteed the insides of the zucchini with olive oil, finely chopped celery, mushrooms, garlic, onions, tomatoes and bread crumbs. Salt and pepper too!

I then put the stuffing back in the zucchini, baked them at 375 for 20 minutes and served them over the cous cous.

It was a great dinner, easy and inexpensive!

Butter Bean Soup with Parmesan
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cans (15.5 oz) Butter Beans
1 sm White onion; (chopped)
Veggie boullion
1 sm carrot - chopped
1/2 tsp rosemary
1 celery stalk - chopped
2 C Water
2 Garlic cloves - chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large saucepan, saute the onion, carrot, celery and garlic in olive oil until the onion is soft. Add the beans, bouillon, rosemary and water. Simmer until heated thoroughly. For a thicker soup, remove 1/2 of the mixture and process in a blender, then return to the soup. Serve topped with grated parmesan cheese and parsley, if desired.

Super easy, costs about three dollars to make and it's tasty.

2 tsp. canola oil
1 cup chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups diced uncooked potatoes
1 tsp. peeled, grated fresh gingerroot
1 Tbs. curry powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
16-oz. can diced tomatoes
16-oz. can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup water or tomato juice
1/2 of 10-oz. box frozen spinach, thawed
2 cups chopped cauliflower
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

Directions
In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, potatoes and ginger and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Add curry powder and cumin and cook 1 minute, stirring.

Add tomatoes and chickpeas; bring to a boil, stirring. Add water slowly and spinach.

Place cauliflower on top of stew. Cover and simmer until cauliflower is tender, 10 minutes. Season with salt and cayenne.
Had this one tonight. I made an adjustment which made it even better. I added two teaspoons of garam masala.

I then served the concoction over basmati rice. Yummy.....

Oh, I also live at 7200 feet so the simmering time is extended by about 30 minutes or the potatoes remain crunchy.

Philly Cheese Steaks

I found that two items are essential when making this treat. Cheeze Whiz and good bread. I have had good and bad rolls. They make such a difference. In my area Maier's Steak Rolls are just great, substantial, not crumbly and a nice flavor. And I used other cheese sauce but "Whiz" is the one, nothing else comes close. For the steak Morningstar Farms® Meal Starters™ Veggie Steak Strips.

Chop a yellow onion, large pieces. Fry with a very little oil until soft and just browned on the edges. When done, add a bit of soy sauce to the pan and add the steak strips and heat.

For the bread, I spread the rolls open and lightly toast them over my gas stove's burners. Toasting improves the sandwich. Spread the top of the roll with Cheeze Whiz. Lay some steak strips in the roll and cover with a generous amount of fried onions. Close and eat - Oh My! this is good

Sorry SeeBee! My MIL has been visiting so I haven't been checking in (she left today and I had a looong nap!).

So here is the recipe--credit goes to VT (10/06 edition):

Savory Pumpkin Quiche

1/2 c. Gruyere cheese
1 9-inch piecrust
1 c. milk
2 lg. eggs
1 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. blk pepper
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 c. fresh or canned pumpkin puree

Sprinkle cheese over bottom of pie crust (I shredded the cheese).
Whisk together milk, eggs and spices/herbs. Blend in pumpkin and pour over cheese in crust.

Bake 10 min. at 400 degrees. Then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 45-50 minutes or until pie has set. Cool 10 min. before serving.


Yummy and super simple!

Thanks for sharing--I didn't find out about Philly Cheese Steaks until after I turned veggie and always wondered if I missed out on something. I will have to try it some day.

Last night, we had black bean pie with vegan carrot cake for desert. The cake had a good taste, but it had the texture of a muffin instead of a cake. (Hasn't stopped me from having two pieces today so far)

Sunday night we had portabella mushroom "burgers" with pesto and mozzerella cheese -- wonderful as usual! I also attempted veggie chips--frying thin slices of beets, sweet potatoes, and regular potatoes in oil. They were pretty good, although the recipe said to keep them warm in them oven at 350 degrees while cooking the rest...that ended up burning half the chips! I had a hard time getting the beets crisp, but when I did they were the best!

MMm Portabella Mushroom burgers sound soooo good.... My boyfriend was just telling me we should try it since they are the size of a regular burger and are meaty with out the meat.

I had...

Thin spinach pizza with soy mozzarella
and a green salad with sunflower seeds and a raspberry vinaigrette.
