IMG_3515

  It’s been a good month plus since I’ve participated in a Sunday Supper event with my fellow food bloggers. The theme this week is Mother’s Day. I had the perfect recipe picked out after asking my wife what she wanted me to make for her this weekend. She had her eye, or is it [...]

Barley and Herb-Stuffed Vegetables

Last weekend I spent some time making these creative stuffed zucchinis. The filling is quite simple and reminded me of how much I need to use barley more often in my vegetarian cooking. The one modification I would make is to use bell peppers instead of the zucchini.  The filling needed something a bit more [...]

Pear Zucchini Stir Fry

Before last Sunday I had no clue what a Pear Zucchini was so don’t worry if you do not either.  You can substitue any vegetable here.  A ‘normal’ green zucchini or yellow squash is fine or skip both and add cauliflower and/or broccoli.  Basically this is anything you want it to be. However, if you [...]

Zucchini Cakes with Arugula Side Salad

Zucchini Cakes

“So how do they taste?” I ask my wife as I sit down at the table. “Zucchini-y,” she responds. “They’re good. Just lots of zucchini.” Well these cakes, patties, fritters do have quite a bit of zucchini in them.  I do recommend patting the shredded zucchini with some paper towel to remove the moister so [...]

I’m not much of a celebrity follower.  Though I have come to enjoy one celebrity’s blog covering some great vegetarian food choices and recipes. Actress Alicia Silverston is anything but Clueless when it comes to finding good things to eat. This recipe is a simple roasted vegetable medley with butternut squash, zucchini, carrots and onions [...]

Spinach Salad with Zucchini Patties and Champagne Vinegar Dressing

This recipe was inspired by a post from blogger Emily Levenson, Zucchini Patties with Tahini Sauce. The zucchini patties are quite versatile and can also be served in a pita with a yogurt sauce or done with tahini dipping sauce and a small side salad. What I really like about this recipe is how quick [...]

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Tagine

I missed the past couple weeks of going to the Farmer’s Market, but fortunately White Rock’s market was open last Saturday.  There was a great selection of vegetables available. I walked away with sweet potatoes, kale, arugula, red potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, and the most beautiful yellow zucchini I’ve seen this year. With only a [...]

Squash Casserole

IMG_7425

I have to admit before moving to a more vegetarian diet, I really didn’t find many uses for squash (or zucchini.) It’s kind of a dull, often mushy vegetable. Fortunately, vegetarian cooking has caused me to rediscover how great squash can be and dishes like this one put the vegetable to good use with minimal [...]

Vegetable Korma

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been on a bit of a vegetarian/vegan kick lately. My wife Stephanie decided to give it an extra boost for my birthday by getting me “Appetite for Reduction” by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. It’s a brilliant book. Here is one of the recipes from the book. It’s called 2nd Avenue Vegetable [...]
