Vegetarian Lasagna

2022-07-29T09:17:36-04:00July 29th, 2022|Categories: Food Columns, Pasta, Rice, Grains, Vegetarian|

My recipe for lasagna is vegetarian. I use spinach and mushrooms and part skim ricotta and mozzarella to make a lighter, healthier dish. With a rather lengthy list of ingredients and several components to the instructions, this is not a quick and easy recipe. Yet, no intricate techniques are required, and there is nothing inherently [...]

Shakshouka

I first sampled shakshouka during my travels in Israel.   Widely popular in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean regions, it hails from Tunisia in North Africa.  The word “shakshouka” is Arabic for ”all mixed up.” Shakshouka in its most basic form is a toothsome dish of eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce.  You may be familiar [...]

Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable Stacks

I love ratatouille, a classic vegetable stew hailing from the Provencal region of southern France near the Mediterranean Sea. To make these colorful and healthy veggie stacks, I used many of the seasonal vegetables and flavorings you would find in a ratatouille—eggplant, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and onions, infused with olive oil and fragrant with garlic [...]

Here’s another tasty dairy option for Shavuot. Ricotta gnocchi are the faster, easier, and, some would say, tastier counterpart to potato gnocchi. If you’ve avoided making pasta or gnocchi recipes because of elaborate instructions and techniques, you’re in for a treat with this recipe, which will give you the satisfaction of making a home made [...]

The Jewish holiday Shavuot begins at sunset this Saturday, June 4, and ends at sunset Monday, June 6. Shavuot is also known as the Jewish Festival of Weeks and it commemorates the anniversary of the giving of the Torah. There are many traditions associated with this lovely holiday such as reading The Book of Ruth [...]

This Israeli Seven Layer Mosaic Spread has become my new go-to dish when I’m looking for an hors d’oeuvre or appetizer that’s fun and festive and visually appealing.  It features two popular Middle Eastern spreads:  Hummus—made with mashed chickpeas, tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and garlic—and Baba ghanoush, made with baked or grilled eggplant, [...]

Here’s a great recipe for veggie burgers.  Composed of healthy veggies, grains, and beans, these burgers are sure to please the vegetarians.   Tasty, wholesome, and filling burgers, the meat eaters may come around and enjoy one of these as well.  I like to serve my veggie burgers on my homemade buns with curly lettuce, tomatoes, [...]
