Recipe: Sage Butternut Lasagna

Another recipe in the series of “Christmas Eve dinner 2013”:

The plan was to make 3 very different types of raviolis, from scratch:

  • porcini mushroom with black truffle oil
  • butternut squash with brown sage butter
  • two cheese with roasted tomato and caper sauce

The thing with planning, is that not everything cooperates, right? The kitchen sink backed up during the prep phase, which put a stop to all washing of dishes, pots and utensils. I had already prepared the butternut squash filling, so I decided to make a lasagna out of it, and skip the other 2 raviolis in the interest of reducing cookware that would need to be washed.

Recipe: Portabella, Polenta & Peppers

We all do it — we make crazy combination dishes, using what we find in the fridge then throwing in a little of this,  a little of that. Once in a while, though, magic happens, and the dish turns out so surprisingly delicious that we scramble to write it down.

Recipe: Hearty 3-Bean Vegetarian Chili

Did you know that there is an International Chili Society?  Yeah,  chili (the stew) and chilis (the peppers) both have huge followings;  the ICS even has a Facebook Page!

I am a big fan of a piping hot bowl of homemade chili, myself.  This time of year when the furnace is blasting but I am still shivering, chili warms me up and fills me up.

But that’s not why I made this chili!  Read the rest of this entry

Recipe: Mexican Rice Fiesta

Meatless Mondays have become really popular, so I wanted to give you an idea for a hearty, healthy meatless dish! It is full of flavor, fresh veggies, filling brown rice, and black beans for added protein.

Recipe: Thai Tofu with Coconut Rice

Many of my dishes can be adapted (some might even say, improved) by making them vegetarian. This one is an adaptation of my Thai Shrimp with Coconut Rice:

Follow the same recipe, but substitute 1 1/2 pounds of cubed, firm tofu.

The turmeric in the Thai Treasure spice blend will give the tofu a beautiful, golden color, making it very appealing to the eye!
