Sauteed summer squash with vegetable-style tempe & dulce (seaweed) with a tamari/sun-dried tomato sauce over quinoa

and marinated cucumber dill salad

Most meals in my house are vegetarian as well as gluten-free. I'm wondering if there would be enough interest to start a 'what's for dinner' thread for vegetarians? Or is that subgroup just too small, and I should look out for veg meals here? I do love this thread!

Although I am definitely not vegetarian, I have made some pretty intriguing spanky vegetarian dishes so I would be interested in a veg thread! :)

I was inspired by Love2Travels posts, so tonight we had Horseradish crusted cod with carmelized onion balsamic jus & lemon basil infusion on a bed of mashed postatoes. It was amazingly good, and just from a couple of pieces of thawed out cod.

OMG. Adapted from this recipe if anyone's interested.

http://lakemagazine.com/recipes/recipedetail.asp?id=LKRID-11252003484-PM48R

(I didn't have sage, wasn't sure about how to split a whole bulb of garlic, so peeled and smashed 4-5 big cloves, used chives instead of shallots, 1 egg and an egg white since I test positive for yolk allergy, used rice vinegar vs. red wine vinegar and used horeseradish from a jar vs. fresh root.) My partner had two portions and said he felt like he just had a $50 meal on his own, declared me iron chef. (Do you think he's trying to encourage me?) :D

I have leftover balsamic syrup. My girlfriend serves that with pizza. I'm thinking about trying the gluten-free Bisquick pizza crust tomorrow.

Gluten-free 4/10. Soy & Dairy Free 6/10. Corn free 7/10. Grain free except rice 8/10. Legume free 6/11. Fighting the battle of the battle within myself, and I'm going to win!

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

Discoid Lupus from skin biopsy 2011, discovered 2/12 when picking up medical records. Systemic Lupus Dx 6/12. Shingles 10/12.

That's awesome, Marilyn! I just love balsamic syrup and use it on all kinds of things - basting quail, drizzling over rib eye, even on ice cream! Also yummy drizzled over grilled or roasted vegetables.

I have been unwell lately so have not been cooking, unfortunately, but miss it like mad! Hopefully tomorrow I will be at it again as I have some fabulous meals lined up...

Grilled Baby Potatoes on Rosemary Skewers with Bay Leaves and Roasted Garlic

Roasted Baby Beets and Carrots with Orange and Sage

Jicama Slaw with Soy Vinaigrette

Chocolate Marquise with Hazelnut Chocolate Tuiles (for my husband) - it is utterly decadent and he soooo deserves it!

I'm cooking something to have for lunch tomorrow. Some fish and chicken with my fav basil/lime juice. Probably make nice herb salad with strawberries. It was long day at work, not liking my new school too much, but trying! So I'm having wine, soy free chocolate chips, Cape Code gluten-free kettle low fat chips(makes me feel better to eat so much) with avocado. I was healthy all dy, I'm going to veg!

I made Greek Pizza with the gluten-free Biscuit recipe. The best thing that I can say about it is that it made the house smell good. :lol:

Next time add in 1/2 cup of Kraft Parmesean cheese ( in the shaker can ) to the crust mixture before baking. It makes a HUGE HUGE difference.

I, too, add all sorts of yummy things to my crust including Parmesan and all sorts of fresh herbs and roasted garlic. Heck, sometimes I even add caramelized onions or shallots.

Not dinner, but I just made this crustless quiche for brunch. It was REALLY good. We had it with Rudi's toast and some fresh fruit.

http://www.food.com/recipe/crustless-bacon-spinach-swiss-quiche-low-carb-209249

I used 1/2 an onion and it was good. I think a whole one would be overkill. Be sure to squeeze excess water out of the spinach and it took more like 40-45 minutes to bake.

Frost is in our forecast for tonight so we will be picking all our vegetables except carrots as they like frost. So, we are having:

Big Salad Night

- butterhead lettuce, baby beet and arugula leaves, red carrots, juicy tomatoes (several of them weigh over 1 lb each) and fresh herbs with a chipotle vinaigrette I am making with dried toasted and re-constituted chipotles, orange juice, pomegranate molasses, etc. and toasted almonds for crunch. Oh, and some fried capers for a bit of puckery crunchy goodness and homemade cornbread croutons. I want to have artisan garlic herb cheese from a near-by farm (made with sheep's milk) but am not doing dairy yet.

There is something so special and gratifying about eating what you grow yourself. :)

The last of the Chocolate Marquise with Raspberry Coulis for dessert.
