These were some vegetarian pizzas we made on New Years Eve. On the left we have roasted grape tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil. The middle is ricotta mixed with fresh garlic and rosemary, provolone, mozzarella, parmesan, and basil, with a brushing of balsamic vinegar on the crust under all of the cheese. On the right is sauteed baby bella mushrooms and cipollini onions, roasted asparagus, havarti and smoked gouda cheese.

We bought the dough from the local italian deli. Yum!!!!!

For dessert, my friends made this amazing recipe

This looks fancy, but if you’ve already prepared the pomegranate it only takes about 5 minutes!

Serves 2

2 un-breaded vegetarian chicken cutlets

2 oz goat cheese

1/2 cup cous cous (the cous cous pictured is Isralei cous cous so it’s large)

1/4 cup pomegranate seeds

olive oil

black pepper

1. Microwave the chicken patty for half of the time specified in the package’s cooking directions.

2. Microwave the cous cous with an equal amount of water in a covered bowl for about 2 minutes.

3. While the cous cous is cooking, cut each chicken in half so you have two thin pieces and spread the goat cheese in between the two pieces.

4. Take the cous cous out and let it stand covered while microwaving the chicken/goat cheese for the rest of the cooking time.

5. Assemble the chicken on top of a bed of cous cous, season with pepper, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.

Sometimes I just crave my old college standby. The  still hungry after no good veggie dining hall options dinner that is….Ramen…

I know that it’s pretty nutritionally void but sometimes nothing beats a good bowl of Oriental flavor Top Ramen. That is until I devised this recipe to add a lot of protein, some actual vegetables, and some spice.  I usually end up eating the whole thing, so this recipe is good for 1 hungry person or 2 sort of hungry people.

1 Package of Oriental flavored Top Ramen. I know that this one is totally vegetarian, I can’t vouch for other brands or flavors.

1/2 package of tofu

3/4 cup frozen peas

2 cups water

asian chili sauce (check that yours is vegetarian)

salt, pepper, paprika

 

1. Microwave the tofu for 30 seconds before slicing it. This helps drain out some of the water.

2. Grill the tofu in a pan coated with cooking spray. Use the ramen flavor packet, salt, pepper, and paprika to coat each side of the tofu. Cook until it is browned on each side.

3. Add the water, peas, and chili sauce and bring to a boil.

4. Add the noodles and simmer for about 3 minutes or until the peas and noodles are cooked.

This serves 4:

2 frozen pie crusts

2-3 servings unbreaded vegetarian chicken, cut into bite sized pieces

2 medium carrots, roughly chopped

4 cloves garlic, unpeeled

1/2 onion, slices

1 lb beets

1 tbs flour

1/2 cup milk

1 tbs balsamic vinegar

salt and pepper

 

1. Pre heat the oven to 350

2. Put the carrots, beets, onions, and garlic on a baking sheet, spray with cooking spray or drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper and roast in the oven for 15 -20 minutes.

3. When the vegetables are out of the oven start to defrost the pie crusts, peel garlic and beets, and chop the beets.

4. Heat the “chicken” in a large pan coated with cooking spray, add the vegetables and balsamic vinegar.

5. Push the veggies and chicken to one side of the pan and melt the butter in the empty side. Add the flour and combine with a fork. Add the milk and stir everything together.

6. Allow the sauce to thicken and pour the mixture into one pie crust. Cover with the other pie crust leaving a few holes.

7. Bake in the oven at 350 for about 25 minutes. The crust should brown and you should be able to see the filling bubbling.
