CHEESY AUTUMN BUTTERNUT SQUASH MACARONI

CHEESY AUTUMN BUTTERNUT SQUASH MACARONI

Serves 6-8

 

1 diced butternut squash or other winter squash

1 (798mL) can diced tomatoes

2 cups water

5 cloves garlic, minced

1 sprig fresh thyme or 1½ Tbsp dried thyme

2 sprigs fresh rosemary or 1 Tbsp dried rosemary

1 cup nutritional yeast flakes

1½ cups unsweetened non-dairy milk

1 bag (454g) uncooked macaroni

Salt and pepper, to taste

Variations: Add in some chopped greens or fresh broccoli.

Add the first ingredients (squash through to rosemary) to the slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours.

Purée the contents of the slow cooker with an immersion blender, then add the nutritional yeast and milk (spiral the milk into the mixture, so the temperature shock isn’t too great). Stir in the macaroni, cover, and cook on high for 30 minutes.

Stir well and add more milk if the sauce is getting too thick. Cook for 15 to 25 minutes more or until the pasta is al dente. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Make sure to check on the pasta every 10 minutes or so until you get good at gauging how fast it will cook in your slow cooker. It cooks faster in the smaller slow cooker.

VEGAN CAESAR SALAD

VEGAN CAESAR SALAD

Makes: 5-6 small bowls

 

Roasted Chickpea Croutons

1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil

½ tsp fine grain sea salt

½ tsp garlic powder

⅛ to ¼ tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

½ cup raw cashews, soaked overnight

¼ cup water

2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp lemon juice

½ Tbsp Dijon mustard

½ tsp garlic powder

1 small garlic clove

½ Tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce

2 tsps capers

½ tsp fine grain sea salt and pepper, or to taste

Nut and Seed Parmesan Cheese

⅓ cup raw cashews

2 Tbsp hulled hemp seeds

1 small garlic clove

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

½ tsp garlic powder

fine grain sea salt, to taste

Lettuce

1 small/medium bunch lacinato kale, destemmed (5 cups chopped)

2 small heads romaine lettuce (10 cups chopped)

Soak cashews in a bowl of water overnight, or for at least a few hours. Drain and rinse.

Roast chickpea croutons. Preheat oven to 400°F. Drain and rinse chickpeas. Place chickpeas in a tea towel and rub dry (it’s okay if some skins fall off). Place onto large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle on oil and roll around to coat. Sprinkle on the garlic powder, salt, and optional cayenne. Toss to coat. Roast for 20 minutes at 400°F, then gently roll the chickpeas around in the baking sheet. Roast for another 10 to 20 minutes, until lightly golden. They will firm up as they cool.

Prepare the dressing. Add the cashews and all other dressing ingredients (except salt) into a high-speed blender, and blend on high until the dressing is super smooth. You can add a splash of water if necessary to get it blending. Add salt to taste and adjust other seasonings, if desired. Set aside.

Prepare the Parmesan cheese. Add cashews and garlic into a mini food processor and process until finely chopped. Now add in the rest of the ingredients and pulse until the mixture is combined. Salt to taste.

Prepare the lettuce. De-stem the kale and then finely chop the leaves. Wash and dry in a salad spinner. Place into extra large bowl. Chop up the romaine into bite-sized pieces. Rinse and then spin dry. Place into bowl along with kale. You should have roughly 5 cups chopped kale and 10 cups chopped romaine.

Assemble. Add dressing onto lettuce and toss until fully coated. Season with a pinch of salt and mix again. Now sprinkle on the roasted chickpeas and the Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

LENTIL AND BARLEY GREEK-ISH SALAD

LENTIL AND BARLEY GREEK-ISH SALAD

Serves 4-5

Salad

1 cup small green or brown lentils (du Puy work well)

1 cup pearl barley

3 large garlic cloves, sliced

1 cup diced tomatoes (drained) or cherry tomatoes cut in half

Crumbled feta

5 scallions, sliced thin

Half a can of pitted black olives, sliced in half

Dressing

Juice of one lemon

1 Tbsp red wine vinegar

1 tsp seasoning (dried lemon, oregano, a touch of rosemary, salt & pepper)

2 garlic cloves, minced

½ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Combine lentils and barley with the garlic slices and water to cover by a few inches, and cook until tender (approx. 30 minutes).

While lentils and barley are cooking, dice tomatoes or cut the cherry tomatoes in half, thinly slice the green onions, crumble the Feta, and slice the olives. Mix together lemon juice, red wine vinegar, Greek seasoning, and minced garlic and then whisk in the olive oil a little at a time to make the dressing.

When lentils and barley are tender, drain well, discarding the garlic, then combine in a bowl large enough to fit all the salad ingredients. Let lentils and barley cool for about 20 minutes, then stir in enough dressing until well-moistened. (Extra can be used to re-moisten the salad.) Add tomatoes, green onions, feta, and olives, and gently combine.

Serve salad slightly warm or at room temperature.

GREEK SALAD WITH ORZO

GREEK SALAD WITH ORZO

1 cup of orzo

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

1 tbsp dijon mustard

¼ cup fresh mint leaves, chopped (1 ½ tbsp dried)

2 tbsp dried oregano

1 tbsp dried thyme leaves

½ tbsp black pepper

2 medium tomatoes, diced

1 small red onion, chopped

1 medium cucumber, unpeeled, diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup pitted black olives, sliced

½ lb. Feta or seasoned tofu, crumbled

1 can chickpeas

Cook orzo as per instructions. I tend to bring a pot of water, covered, to boil, then turn off the heat and add the pasta, and cover again. Stir every 5 minutes (or whenever the lid starts dancing), until al dente. Drain, and run cool water over the pasta.

Mix oil, vinegar, mustard, and herbs/spices in a measuring cup. Adjust to taste.

Combine orzo, tomatoes, onions, cucumber, garlic, olives, Feta/tofu, and chickpeas in a large pot.

Mix vinaigrette into orzo & other main ingredients. Stir well, and serve.

Makes approx. 4 servings. I tend to add a lot more olive oil than indicated (to coat the pasta and other ingredients), as well as much more garlic than legally required (because I can). Suffice it to say, the vinaigrette is to taste.

COUSCOUS SALAD WITH BUTTERNUT SQUASH

COUSCOUS SALAD WITH BUTTERNUT SQUASH

Serves 6

1 medium (2 ½ – 3 lb) butternut squash, peeled and cubed

1 onion, thinly sliced

½ cup dried cranberries

2½ cups water

2 cups dry weight couscous

4-5 Tbsp white wine vinegar

2 Tbsp olive oil

Zest of one orange

½ tsp ground coriander

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp nutmeg

1 tsp cumin

1-3 tsp salt

1 can chickpeas, drained

100-130g goat cheese

Preheat oven to 425° F. Toss the squash cubes and the onion slices with a bit of olive oil and salt. Spread them on a baking sheet and roast, stirring occasionally, until the squash is tender and the onions are starting to crisp at the tips, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool before combining with other ingredients.

Cover the cranberries with very hot water and set them aside to plump while the squash is cooking. Drain before combining with the other ingredients.

Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove the pan from heat, and stir in the couscous and ½ teaspoon of salt. Cover and let sit for about 15 minutes until the couscous has absorbed all the water. Fluff the couscous with a fork and set aside.

Combine squash, onions, couscous, chickpeas, and drained cranberries in a large bowl.

Separately, whisk together vinegar, olive oil, zest, spices, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Pour the dressing over the salad and stir to combine.

Crumble the goat cheese into chunks with your fingers and gently fold them into the salad. Taste to check seasoning and add salt if needed.

This salad can be served room temperature or cold. Leftovers will keep refrigerated for up to a week.
