We just hate all those commercials about how gross vegetables are that they have to hide them in gross fruit drinks! We love vegetables, so here’s a traditional Syrian way to eat them. It’s an easy way to get spinach into your diet, even for those picky eaters, and a great Meatless Monday dinner! Continue reading
This was served as the side dish with my broiled tofu, which Martha Stewart suggested as a meal. Well, I will always listen to Martha, because this was a great meal! Maybe I would have considered this the main dish and the tofu the side dish, but I served them on the same plate at the same time, so whatever. It’s delicious nonetheless.
Soooo remember when I was freaking out about that almost-exploding tofu package? I had been preparing to make this meal. And I made it anyway, but I bought a new package of tofu, because I didn’t want to risk anything.
Think you don’t like tofu? That’s probably not true; I’ve made a slimy tofu before, but you just have to cook it the right way and it’s great! And it’s as easy as broiling it for less than 10 minutes. This is a great start to a Meatless Monday meal!
I wanted to do something different with radishes than I did the first time we got them from our CSA, so I consulted the justfood.org tip sheet that is included with our weekly CSA emails and found this recipe. Having all of the ingredients and therefore not having to run to the supermarket was a sign that I was supposed to eat this string bean salad with radish dressing for dinner! It was a light dinner for me with leftovers to send with David for lunch the next day. It’s also a great recipe for those delicious string beans we’ve been getting, instead of Syrian or Asian style beans.

You might think that this recipe is boring, but it really is the best grilled cheese. Ever. I make it in my mini cast iron skillet with pita bread, butter, and two kinds of cheese.
The most important part of this sandwich? To put the cheese on the outside of the pita bread. The pocket side gets all buttery, crispy, and delicious, and is just so much better when it’s outside the sandwich! Don’t believe me? Try it! Continue reading
Please welcome the lovely Leat, who turns 24 today, as we share a delicious sandwich whose ingredients we never thought of combining. Happy birthday, Leat!
I usually get one of two responses when I tell people about my favorite breakfast sandwich: “well I like cream cheese, and I do like avocados,” implying that they are game to try said sandwich, or a confused look, implying that they are confused by said sandwich. The only reasons not to try this deliciousness would be because you either hate avocados (fie!) or cream cheese (more understandable). Continue reading
Lentils are boring. I think the only way I’ve ever even eaten lentils is in soup (and that’s the red variety, the kind that Esav traded his birthright for) and in rice and lentils. But when Ina made her salmon with lentils and everyone about the lentils on the bottom, I knew I should try it. Continue reading
Shavuot is distinct from most other holidays because we traditionally eat dairy (why?). This means that we can eat gooey cheesey dinners, and more importantly, we don’t have to make desserts using fake butter like we usually do!! So we always pick out some special recipes to share with our family during this holiday.
Here is a meatless yet satisfying dinner for Meatless Monday:
This was the first time we’d ever cooked with fresh peas; we usually use the frozen variety. But since peas (as well as asparagus) are in season, this recipe from the Williams-Sonoma Bride & Groom Cookbook seemed like a perfect recipe to try. We used Alton’s recipe for the pasta.
