This is not healthy at all...... (lol)
After a week of nothing but steak, I’m thoroughly ready for some vegetarian cuisine! There is something special about cooking and eating vegetarian food. Sure, you can eat fake meats or plain vegetables…..but that’s so boring! Vegetarian cooking should be more like a science experiment…. How can I combine simple, inexpensive, non-meat ingredients to make a fully satisfying meal (not to mention a meal I can reheat and eat for lunch the next day). Here’s what I’ll be trying this week:
Sunday: Tomato and White Bean Soup
You can’t beat a good soup, and this one looks mighty tasty. I will be making thi soup as written but, of course, adding some cheese on the top (cuz….yum!)
This is another fabulous recipe out of the Thug Kitchen 101 book…….I’m telling you this book is worth every penny you will pay for it. For those unfamiliar with Japchae, it’s a Korean noodle dish that is savory and delicious. The noodles typically used to make Japchae are thick glass noodles. I am going to use rice noodles because I already have them at the house….but there is something special about those glass noodles if you are going to the store anyway.
PS If you don’t want to make Japchae at home, you can get a delish dish of them at The Veggie House in uptown Phoenix.
Tuesday: I will be camping…. So….. hot dogs maybe?
Wednesday: Broccoli Pasta
I just love garlic……. Don’t you? I’m excited to have some super garlicky pasta SO I will be adding more cloves of garlic to this recipe.
Yes, you read right. The husband will be making semi homemade pizza, which is something he has never done. We’re going to get the dough and sauce from Trader Joe’s. I love their garlic and herb pizza crust….. yum! When I make pizza at home, I usually make a homemade sauce, but he will be using premade pizza sauce. Wish him luck!!!
And that’s all folks….have a wonderful week! Don’t forget to follow my Instagram @the.foodie.clinician for pics of these recipes and more tips!
