VDP: Cheese And Beer

Wednesday, April 16, 2008 I have not posted much in this project recently, not because I have not been serving vegetarian items. I have been a bit busy and most of my vegetarian meals have been very simple and in all honesty, not very interesting. Stuff like bread and cheese or a simple salad haveContinue reading “VDP: Cheese And Beer”

VDP: Lebanese Pies – Kishik

Sunday, April 06, 2008 Kishik is an ancient Lebanese pantry item. It’s a process to preserve milk and grain to make nutritious tasty meals throughout the winter. The process to make it is time consuming and I’ve never attempted it myself. Some books have recipes for making it and Paula Wolfert has recipes to makeContinue reading “VDP: Lebanese Pies – Kishik”

VDP: Pizza – Dandelion and Margarita

Wednesday, March 19, 2008 Everyone loves pizza, and baked goods in general are one of the easiest foods to make vegetarian AND delicious. What I did here is make the dough the night before. I used a dough recipe that is fridge friendly, Peter Reinhart’s Pain a l ‘Ancienne dough from ‘The Bread Baker’s Apprentice‘.Continue reading “VDP: Pizza – Dandelion and Margarita”

VDP: Swiss Chard, Shallot and Goat Cheese Tart

Saturday, February 16, 2008 Why is this a tart, not a quiche? I am not exactly sure, but I can give it a shot. This here is a quiche. It’s got a lot more eggs, it’s about 2 inches thick and the whole point of it is the custard, not the ‘filling’. A savory tartContinue reading “VDP: Swiss Chard, Shallot and Goat Cheese Tart”

VDP: Indian Lentil and Spinach Soup with Naan

Thursday, January 31, 2008 Two legume and greens dishes in one week. Definitely not intentional, I actually wanted to make something kind of Indian and remember seeing a recipe in “How to Cook Everything Vegetarian” for a lentil soup with coconut. When I was ready to make it, I noticed that in addition to missingContinue reading “VDP: Indian Lentil and Spinach Soup with Naan”

VDP: Grilled Cheddar Cheese Sandwich and Hot Chocolate

Thursday, January 10, 2008 Not much time to cook last night. Diana decided to have a bowl of cereal with cold milk. I was not crazy about the idea. Instead I did a quick dinner of grilled cheese and a cup of hot chocolate. The sandwich is of course very simple. I used home bakedContinue reading “VDP: Grilled Cheddar Cheese Sandwich and Hot Chocolate”

Real Men Don’t Eat quiche, they eat Quiche!

“Real men don’t eat quiche”! Yeah, right, not when it is my quiche or should I say the Bouchon quiche. I really do not know where that reputation came from. Probably from the tiny dainty pieces of puff pastry painted with a substance that might’ve been egg at some point and frozen in boxes thatContinue reading “Real Men Don’t Eat quiche, they eat Quiche!”
