A look at some recent recipes tried and adored at our house. Well, at least by most of us.
Fast, easy pasta
“Small”, my nearly vegetarian, picked this out as one she wanted to try from my Pinterest recipe stream. Happy to report that she loved it! Easy and fast to make.
A twist on stir-fry
A fun way to mix up the usual stir-fry! After these were cooked, I plated them up with some veggie fried rice. I used some of the “dipping sauce” in the recipe as a flavoring sauce for the rice.
Soup (Of Course!)
A good basic vegetarian bean soup recipe. I doctored mine up just a bit by sauteing some chopped leeks and carrots before I added the garlic and herbs.
I used bone-in breast and thigh pieces with skin to make the broth. I served with onion slivers, cilantro, lime wedges, and julienned carrots, since bean sprouts are so hard to find these days. I didn’t want the broth chicken to go to waste, so I removed the skins and bones and cut it up to use in a baked macaroni and cheese casserole later in the week.
From the Favorites File
My all-time favorite muffin recipe.
Fun to make with the kids
My youngest and I had great fun making these. We used the short grain brown rice known at our food co-op as Sweet Brown Rice. To shape them, follow Heidi’s suggestions in the recipe. I used a mini-muffin tin as our form and though it was perfect for making bite-sized balls. They were a huge hit with the whole family.
