Meatless Monday: Chilled Avocado-Cucumber Soup

posted by Charlotte Bell on August 24, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Cooling Avocado-Cucumber Soup Soup from scratch is one of my favorite things to make. In the winter, a bowl of hot soup is comforting and warming, with the added bonus of providing meals for several days. In the summer I don’t have much of a taste for anything hot, including soup. So instead, I’ve collected several chilled-soup recipes that have become summer staples. This is one of them.

meatless mondayKale Salad with Tomatoes, Olives and Feta for Meatless Monday The kale keeps on coming. Even if you don’t have a steady supply in your back yard, you can find organic kale in most grocery stores.

posted by Charlotte Bell on August 3, 2015 |

meatless mondayTry Oven-Roasted Okra for Meatless Monday Okra has a complicated reputation. While it’s beloved in the southeastern United States, and often used to marvelous effect in East Indian cuisine, it is also infamous for having an off-putting slimy texture. It certainly can, but slime is not inevitable. Okra is not common out here in the arid West. But I happened to stumble upon some organic okra at Salt Lake City’s

Meatless Monday: A Not-Too-Sweet Dessert

posted by Charlotte Bell on July 27, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Black Rice Pudding with Fruit Topping I love taking advantage of the availability of fresh, organic fruits in the summertime. While a fruit salad melange of whatever’s available is always a healthy, refreshing option, I also like to add fruit to other desserts. Fruit is inherently sweet on its own, so when I add fruit to a dessert, I want that dessert to be on the less-sweet side.

kale saladMeatless Monday: Kale Salad with Miso-Roasted Tofu As my backyard kale started to proliferate a few months ago, I posted a couple of kale salad recipes (here’s one and here’s the other). Even later in the season, I find that my fresh-picked, homegrown kale is much more tender than what I find at the store. Kale salads are a great way to use tender leaves, and this particular salad, that

posted by Charlotte Bell on June 22, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Join the Barbecue with Tasty Skewers In the decades since I stopped eating meat, people have often asked whether I miss eating hamburgers on the grill. I don’t. I actually don’t care for the smell of barbecued burgers, but I do like the taste of grilled foods. Barbecues and potluck picnics abound in the summer. Vegetarians can always partake of the meatless sides at an outdoor barbecue, but

posted by Charlotte Bell on June 8, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Parsley Pesto Most of us are familiar with basil pesto. It’s the most traditional form of pesto.
