Meatless Monday – From the Garden

Tonight’s dinner was inspired by my sister-in-law’s vegetable garden.  We had green beans, cherry tomatoes and heirloom tomatoes.  A recent issue of Cooking Light has a recipe for Blistered Green Beans and Tomatoes.  The beans and tomatoes are lightly tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper, then baked at 450 for 10 minutes, and broiled for 5 minutes.  We also had pizza with mushrooms, onions, heirloom tomatoes and olives.  I loved the green beans and they were easy to throw together.

Almost Meatless Monday – Roy Choi’s Ramen

I found this intriguing ramen recipe from celebrity chef Roy Choi, involving processed American cheese.  I even found the recommended ramen at Walmart (Shin Ramyun).  So that’s what we had for dinner.  It’s not meatless because the ramen seasoning packet contains beef product.  The cheese melted into the noodles to give it a velveeta mac cheese flavor.  In addition to the cheese, an egg is added while the noodles are cooking, so it gets poached.  Not exactly healthy but I was surprised at how tasty (in a comfort food way) the combination of ingredients was.
