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
A Couple Cooks. Another vegetarian blog by a very talented husband and wife team Sonja & Alex who love to cook.
Thanks to all of you for following along with me on this adventure. Cheers!
