This was a complete and total last minute throw together. I was ready to serve tofu and veg when the little guy chimed in that he wanted curry. (He saw the pot of spicy red curry intended for Daddy.) I was in luck. I grabbed a handful of veg from the summer roll box, added […]
I went through a phase when my favorite lunch was savory oatmeal with kale. I couldn’t resist using some of the kid’s butternut squash and kale for a quick creamy dreamy oatmeal lunch. So tasty!

Somehow I hid dough from myself this week. I thought we were out, then I find 2 bags of partial doughs in the fridge after I made an entire new batch. So… today we are using it all to make lots of these little personal pizzas for the freezer. Most will be the equivalent of […]
Yet another pad thai. I minced (whizzed in the food processor) some extra broccoli and cauliflower, and added that along with the cabbage slaw. Tossed in some halved cherry tomatoes at the end. Yum. Now I’m out of pad thai sauce again. It doesn’t last long these days!
There was just enough leftover eggplant puree and mushroom/spinach leftover from calzones to justify this risotto. (Basic risotto without the parm.) Finished it with a dollop of tofu puree, and topped it with fresh basil and a dollop of tomato sauce. Tasty.
I was planning a stir fry, but then the little guy picked these to combine. Tasty! He loved it and asked for a second serving. It’s just sauteed mushrooms and tofu cubes with the tomato sauce. The 2yo is keeping me on my toes. Certain food loves are now “no thanks”. I’m hoping this is […]
Masaman curry because it looks delicious, and I’ve never made a curry dish that included potatoes. Calzones because this week’s tofu project is making “ricotta”. Risotto because it’s been awhile. Green pea puree inspired by a new Jamie Oliver cookbook. Butternut & sundried tomatoes because I really love that combo. Not exactly sure if it […]
On our way home the 2 yo sous talked through this creation. He started with wanting “soup”, and then I prompted ingredients by asking “What goes in your soup?”. I’m all about using leftovers, especially on shopping day, so I let him go with it. I’m kinda impressed. 🙂 Soup: leftover chicken satay, leftover giant […]
Chicken satay, french bread, white bean bolognese
When my bread was a little hollow last week I reserved a few slices to dry. I crumbled it as best I could then lay on a baking pan. These dried overnight in the oven. (no heat, just a convenient place to leave them) Whiz ’em up in the food processor, and…. bread crumbs. Should […]
