Meatless Monday: Oven-Roasted Tomatoes

posted by Charlotte Bell on November 23, 2015 |

Meatless Monday: Oven-Roasted Tomatoes Last week I wrote about ways to use up your green tomatoes, including seasonal favorites such as fried green tomatoes. I also included instructions for ripening tomatoes indoors in paper bags. This week, I had a sufficient number of paper-bag-ripened tomatoes that I needed to use them or lose them. One of my favorite preparations is to slow roast my indoor-ripened tomatoes in the oven. Roasting

posted by Anna Johnson on November 16, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Keep Almonds on Hand As a recent convert to the vegetarian lifestyle, I’ve come to appreciate almonds. Almonds are one of the “world’s healthiest foods,” and actually a food that I wasn’t particularly interested in until I understood its nutritional value.

Meatless Monday: What to Do with All Those Green Tomatoes

posted by Charlotte Bell on November 9, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Got Green Tomatoes? Here’s What to Do I picked the last of my tomatoes last week. Picking the last tomatoes—mostly green ones—and pulling up the plants is the first step to tucking in my garden beds for the winter. While I’ve grown vegetables in my back yard since the late 1980s, I didn’t learn until maybe 15 years ago about what to do with all the green tomatoes,

posted by Charlotte Bell on November 2, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: The Simplest, Tastiest Tomato Soup A freeze is coming—tomorrow. I spent an hour on Saturday, wistfully pulling up my tomato plants and harvesting a whole lot of green tomatoes. I found a lot of ripe fruit though, and I used the not-so-pretty tomatoes in a very tart, very simple tomato soup. Homemade tomato soup, from homegrown tomatoes, is a totally different animal from the canned tomato soup I

Because of the unseasonably warm weather my garden is still a going concern. Not only are my tomatoes still ripening, but my herbs are still fresh and lively.

Meatless Monday: Quince, Fall Fruit of the Ancients

posted by Charlotte Bell on October 19, 2015 |

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Try Something New—Quince For me, autumn means quince—lots of it. Never tried it? You’re not alone. I probably wouldn’t know much about it if I didn’t have a very prolific Portuguese quince tree in my back yard. The large, five-petaled quince blossoms are stunning, but what can you do with a fuzzy, oddly shaped, hard-as-a-rock fruit that you can’t eat raw? As it turns out, a lot—both sweet

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Savory Corn Waffles with Salsa, Guacamole and Feta The unseasonably warm fall has been a boon to my tomato patch. Most years, tomatoes stop ripening toward the end of September. This year, with daytime temps in the 80s, my tomatoes are still ripening. This means that they’re still wonderful raw. Yesterday I decided to make fresh salsa and fresh guacamole with my fresh tomatoes. I wanted the salsa

meatless mondayMeatless Monday: Be Creative with Panzanella Salad For several summers in a row, I’ve attended meditation retreats at Spirit Rock Meditation Center. It is always a joy—a “coming home”—for me to be able to sit, walk and be in silence for a week or two.
