Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner…and then some

In the kitchen at Di's House

Meatless Monday – Pizza

We’ve been having pizza lately.  I made a big batch of dough, put it in the refrigerator, and take out as much as I need.  For Meatless Monday we had mushroom, onion, garlic, olive and Quorn crumbles (faux ground beef) pizza.  I like making small pizzas so we eat them fresh out of the oven and not reheated.

Earlier in the week we had roasted kale and asparagus pizza.  The first time I made it, the kale got too charred, so the next pizza I added the kale about halfway through.  I really liked it but the picky eater picked off the kale, since it didn’t really “stick” to the cheese.

Wonton Ravioli

I know I haven’t posted as much but I’m still cooking.  Some days it’s just hard to find any inspiration to cook, especially when it feels like a chore.  I had some leftover wonton wrappers and jarred Trader Joe’s vodka pasta sauce, which turned into wonton ravioli.  For the filling, I roughly followed a recipe in Joy of Cooking, using ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella, seasoning and egg.  Homemade had tons more flavor than refrigerated ravioli.  I’ll  have to try making my own pasta next.

St. Patrick’s Day

We had cabbage and carrots for St. Patrick’s Day, in egg roll form.  I added some mashed tofu for protein.

I’ve baked egg rolls before and thought I’d try baking them in a convection oven, in hopes of “air frying” them.  I was hopeful when I saw blisters forming on the wrappers.  They ended  up being better than regular baked but not as good as fried.  Kind of like how a baked burrito is not the same as a chimichanga.  I liked that it was no mess, though.

We also had Irish soda bread.  The recipe I found had baking soda in it but no baking powder.It was better this morning, split and toasted.  Aren’t the skillets cute?  I got them for Christmas.  I originally wanted them to make individual skillet cookies  brownies, to serve a la mode.
