Re: Going Veggie

Had a go at making this coconut vegetarian curry today - it was nice enough but it had too much potato and not really enough of anything else!

Any suggestions on how to make it more coconutty? Or things to add to it that'll taste nice in the curry?

I would replace the russets with red potatoes. Maybe cut back on the coconut milk and use from fresh coconut instead. You could also try a dash of cinnamon.

Re: Going Veggie

Did some Rattatouile a la Remy last night (i.e. the rattatouile from "Rattatouile"):



Two things became evident, I really shouldn't have put in those extra tomato slices, they didn't really work. Also I'm not a huge fan of Aubergine. Zucchini I now officially love though.

^Is this baked, or what? Looks yummy, but I have no idea how to cook it.

Re: Going Veggie

Not a fan of aubergine? What is WRONG WITH YOU?! It is only the finests veg on the planet!

I do understand, it has an unusual texture, and can be rubbery if it's not cooked properly. If you ever feel like giving it one more try, though, I'd suggest the Italian dish, eggplant parmigiana -- the aubergine/eggplant just melts in your mouth.

Re: Going Veggie

I suppose it could be good, but in this format it did not fit my palette. I could give the eggplant parmigiana a try.

Made tsq's chili, with a small mod: added some beef and subtracted some beans (stills beans in it though). here it is in different stages:








And it was delicious it really was...but next time I'll go easier on the chilies and chili seasoning. Didn't think I added that much (certainly not above what was in the recipe), but it turned out very spicy! To the point that we had to get some bread and sour cream to keep eating it. Either ingredients here and in the US are different, or tsq is more of a man then I
If you want bread to go with chili, this is fantastic.

Yum Though preparing it is key. Moussaka's easy to make. And I love Baba Ghanoush (sp?) which is a smoky Lebanese aubergine/eggplant dip. Also fattoush (but that doesn't have any aubergine in it )

Re: Going Veggie

I like making eggplant dip. Roast 'em, peel them (or not), blend them with olive oil and garlic. A meal in itself on a nice crusty rye.

Here's my vegetarian and diabetes friendly dinner tonight, spaghetti squash, asparagus, brussels sprouts and pesto, topped with sun-dried tomatoes and aged parmesan flakes:

That said some sugar in chillie is good too.
Mom always put sugar in pasta sauce or chili (anything with a tomato base) to lessen the acidity. I have since tried a small amount of brown sugar to such recipes. I am talking a very small amount... not enough to change the taste.

I'm fine with talking about both, though I get annoyed if people start making accusations and such. You know, like "meat is murder and you're a cold blooded killer!" or "you're going to die of protein starvation! You're afraid of a little blood!" and such.
This is the reason I was afraid to ask questions here. The only veggie-tarians I knew were very militant about it.

However, I feel very comfortable here now (well, J. Allen still scares me a bit ). Thanks everyone for the input. In the future, I may be asking for advice again. I do envy those who have access to such exotic foods. It would make for so much more variety.

Ooo, another idea for this week's dinners

____

And now something from me. I found the recipe yesterday and already tested. It's nice

1 melon
1 red onion
feta
olives (the original recipe says they should be black, but I use my favourite green)
pepper
fresh parsley
fresh mint
1 lime

Slice the onion and marinade the onion rings in the lime juice for half an hour (in the fridge). Then dry the onion and put into a bowl.

Cut the olives. Use a special spoon to "dig" balls of melon (I didn't bother, I just cut the melon to small cubes). Chop the mint and parsley (I used mixed lettuce instead, because could buy neither yesterday). Add into the bowl with the onion and sprinkle with a bit of pepper. Mix and enjoy.

You can use a watermelon instead of a melon.

I will also add shreds of pomelo the next time I prepare it.
