Purple Sprouting Broccoli Two Ways

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

Purple Sprouting Broccoli Tart (Gluten Free and Vegan)I’ve been enjoying my purple sprouting broccoli arriving fresh every week from Abel&Cole. I encourage all of you to take advantage of this fine vegetable while it is still in season. Boiled, steamed or sauteed, purple sprouting broccoli makes a fine side dish, but here are two recipes where it takes center stage. Both are Gluten free and vegan.

Dia's Noodle SoupEven in nice weather, people get unwell. There is nothing more comforting than a bowl of noodle soup. Many have come to associate noodle soup with chicken, but as someone who does not eat meat I had to improvise.

Rolled Aubergine–Eggplant Dolma

Friday, May 29th, 2009

Rolled Aubergine/ Eggplant Dolma I have been wanting to make Dolma for a while now, it is an Eastern European way of hollowing and stuffing vegetables which have the typical appearance of looking rolled. Most cooks will stuff their chosen vegetable with cheese and meat, or cheese and fish. I decided to stuff mine with Orzo, a rice shaped pasta, sweet peppers, chili peppers, tomatoes, garlic and onions. Why not just use rice instead? Orzo has the most delicious flavor, that even the finest risotto rice cannot duplicate. I use this a lot in my pasta dishes and soups. Be sure to try it some time!

Dia’s Quorn English Sausage Jambalaya

Jambalaya finished and looking yummyOK, so English Sausage is probably not the first thing to come to mind, when you think, “Jambalaya”, but trust me with this recipe, the flavors permeate through the sauce and it all works out well. The word Jambalaya may sound like it would be complicated to make, but it is really simple.
