  • Meatless Monday: Kale Salad with Figs

    My garden kale has made a big comeback. July’s oppressive heat was not kind to it. Nor was the aphid infestation. But as it's gotten cooler, my kale is plentiful. As for the aphids, I hired some helpers, a package of ladybugs, to take care of them. Garden-fresh kale, like so many other veggies, is just better when you grow it yourself. It’s naturally tender, so it generally doesn’t need “massaging” with oil when you plan to eat it raw. Of course, if you’re buying kale at a market, massaging it (rubbing it with some oil until it’s soft) tenderizes...

  • Meatless Monday: Burrito Bowl

    One of the most fun things about the new bowl craze is the opportunity for creative fun. As I was pondering what to make for dinner last evening, I decided to make a bowl out of stuff I already had in my pantry and fridge. As it turns out, I was able to make a bowl with a coherent theme: Mexican. I've read a few recipes for burrito bowls. The one I made last evening incorporated elements of some of these, but also included my own ideas. I wanted to include a veggies that aren’t typically a part of burrito bowls, so...

  • Meatless Monday: Refreshing Watermelon-Arugula Salad

    Few things are as refreshing on a hot summer day as watermelon. A slice of juicy watermelon is just the right taste and texture for taking the edge off a sweltering afternoon. The reason might well be that watermelon is 92 percent water. But in addition, has significant amounts of  vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. It’s also very low in sodium and calories. In July I attended an 18-day silent meditation retreat at Spirit Rock Meditation Center. In addition to the glorious 18 days of silence and meditation, the meals are always a treat...

  • Meatless Monday: Protein Power Quinoa Salad

    Last week, I published a recipe for a quinoa roasted veggie bowl for Meatless Monday. In the description of the recipe, I mentioned that the recipe I found online yielded a whole lot more quinoa than was needed for the bowls. The excess quinoa from that recipe was more than enough for another few meals, so I searched my cookbooks for another recipe that would accommodate all that extra grain. This tasty, well-balanced, protein-rich recipe is what I settled on. My partner and I enjoyed three meals from this salad. Unlike pasta salads, where the pasta soaks up the dressing, resulting in a...

  • Meatless Monday: Quinoa Roasted Veggie Bowl

    Roasted veggies are just so good. They don’t take a whole lot of time to prepare and cook, and they’re really flavorful. Roasting seems to concentrate their flavors. I made this recipe for my partner and me. As much as I love roasted veggies, they don’t work all that well as leftovers. So I chopped enough veggies for four servings, using the measurements below. Then I tossed all the veggies together and roasted half of them the first day. This made plenty of veggies for both of us. The next day, the bowls took very little time to prepare because my...

  • Meatless Monday: Roasted Veggie, Hummus, Mustard Bowl

    I seem to be on a roll with the bowl thing. I’ve always loved one-dish meals, but I have a big crush on the concept of arranging different ingredients in a bowl, each with its own special section. It’s aesthetically pleasing and makes for a well-balanced meal. I found this recipe on The Taste Space. I customized it a bit, using broccoli in addition to the cauliflower (including the broccoli stems). Also, on the second day—because this recipe makes enough for two people for two days—I substituted kale for the spinach. Because I could see that this was going to...

  • Meatless Monday: Pesto-Quinoa Bowl

    I’ve enjoyed making one-dish meals for years. Soups, stews, meal salads, grains and beans, and the like have been staples in my diet. In the past few years, bowls have become a thing. Bowls are basically one-dish meals that combine grains, protein and veggies. You can find tons of recipes for vegetarian and vegan bowls online these days. I found the bowl I’m sharing in this post on a site called namely marly. I made a few modifications, for example, using fresh peas instead of frozen. It’s much more labor intensive to pull the peas out of their pods than...

  • Meatless Monday: Sorghum and Arugula Bowl

    Thirty years ago, when I first stopped eating meat, brown rice was the go-to grain. A few others, such as millet, bulghur, couscous and buckwheat appeared in occasional recipes, but brown rice—short-, medium- and long-grain—was ubiquitous. In recent years, while different types of rice are still an important source of complex carbs, the whole grain field has blown open. Recently, I came across some recipes that used sorghum, a gluten-free ancient grain that originated in India. Curious to try it, I started with this recipe for a sorghum bowl that I found online at The Healthy Apple. The recipe’s author...

  • Meatless Monday: Greens and Cauliflower Indian Style

    As spring arrives—in fits and starts—my cravings turn to lighter fare. Just a few weeks ago, homey, baked dishes attracted me. Now, I’m craving sautés and salads. This week’s recipe, which features cruciferous cauliflower and peppery watercress, comes from The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison. The ingredient list may look long, but the recipe is easy to assemble. When I make a stir-fry or sauté, I like to get all my veggie chopping done in advance, so that when it comes time to cook, everything is ready to go. When a recipe contains a spices that will...

  • Meatless Monday: Chickpea Salad

    Back in early November, I wrote about a new delicacy I enjoyed on a meditation retreat last summer: preserved lemon. At the time I promised I’d share a recipe that uses preserved lemon. Today’s the day. In fact, the plate in the photo shows two ways to use preserved lemon. I’ve included both recipes in this post. The chickpea salad comes from Spirit Rock Meditation Center. While I don’t know how much of each ingredient they used to make the salad I enjoyed there, I made up my own version using just their ingredient list. Feel free to play with...
