Green Kitchen Stories – It’s a Wrap!

Green Kitchen Stories – It’s a Wrap!


If you’ve been following me the last few weeks you know I’ve been cooking through the lovely blog Green Kitchen Stories by David and Luise. In the last week I cooked three more of their recipes starting with the lovely Vegetarian Bouillabaisse, pictured above and below


This dish had all our favorites; parsnips, carrots, fennel bulb, potatoes, beans, and lovely flavorings of saffron and thyme. I especially enjoyed the big of roasted fennel as a topping, which echoed the flavor of fennel in the stew. Fabulous meal and would definitely do this again. Next up


Mint & Mango Marinated Zucchini Spaghetti. I was so happy to be able to whip out my vegetable spiral slicer for this one!


Super basic; blending mango, mint, red chili, and ginger into a sauce. Topped with pistachio nuts and pea shoots. My only mistake on this was tossing together the sauce with the “spaghetti” about 20 minutes before I took this picture, which makes the zucchini look a bit mushy. Note to self, blend sauce just before serving. Flavors were great. This would make a great summer dish as well. Last but not least was


Butternut & Cabbage Stew. The flavors here were superb with a mix of butternut squash, cabbage, rice, and black eyed peas and topped with some roughly chopped parsley and thinly sliced apple. My only challenge was cooking the peas through…


which I did do…at the expense of the squash, which became mushy. Texture is more like a porridge than a stew. If I did this one again, I’d go with canned black eyed peas so I could control the cook time around the squash.

Whenever I’m looking for a vegetarian option for a meal, Green Kitchen Stories will be at the top of my list.

So, what’s next? I’d like to explore

    That first one looks really like something I would like I will have to give it a try. Have a lovely trip South and Happy Valentine’s Day on Sunday.

    These all sound like wonderful blends of interesting flavors and textures. My favorite photo is the closeup of the zucchini spaghetti with the pea tendril garnish. Those delicate little curls are an exquisite touch!
