New Favorites: Vegetarian Dinners

Jim and I love to incorporate a lot of vegetarian meals into our diets – They are tasty, good for us and are usually cheaper to prepare.

Here are 3 that have quickly risen to the top of our “make again” list!  (click image for recipe)

Crispy Gnocchi with Homemade Pesto: Make a double-batch and enjoy for lunch the next day!

Farfalle with Chipotle, Black Beans and Corn: Sensitive palates – Beware!!  Chiles in adobo make this recipe a HOT one!  P.S. We substituted in sour cream for mayonnaise.

Soba Noodles with Sweet Ginger Scallion Sauce: So easy to put together – Dinner will be ready before you know it!

Do you have any favorite vegetarian dishes you’d like to share with me?


  1. Let’s talk about shakshouka and how delicious it is. (I’ve been meaning to write about this properly but I’ve been distracted lately.) This was the rare Pinterest find I ACTUALLY DID instead of just staring at wistfully for a few minutes on my laptop screen.

    This is the recipe I used:

    I’ve made some modifications:

    1. I added mozzarella cheese on top because I LOVE CHEESE AND ALWAYS WILL
    2. Instead of tomato paste I used gochujang (Korean red chili pepper paste) because it’s tastier and easier to find here.
    3. I am a lazy fuck and just blend the tomato, gochujang, onion, and garlic together all at once and fry them up, instead of the step-by-step process The Shiksa uses. I’m a lazy cook. It tastes all right; as it is it’s a bit watery (I think because of the tomatoes) so I keep upping the amount of gochujang each time to hopefully offset it.

    It’s a great lazy food!
