Veggies/Vegetarian Recipes

Artichokes and Feta Cheese Spread on Pita: June 17, 2013
Serve this as a munchie, or think about topping it with a nice romaine salad, drizzling with a bit of your favorite dressing, and serving as a salad, vegetarian main-course, or even (as it happens) a lovely accompaniment to baked salmon.

Artichoke and Feta Tart: November 26, 2013
Note: this particular version had an added layer of (very nice) muffaletta, so it’s not really vegetarian, but if you follow the amounts listed in the recipe for the feta and the cream, you should be good to go with a well and truly (and vegetarian!) filled tart to set before friends and family.

It’s an appetizer, it’s a salad… it’s a veggie! Triple threat!

Artichoke Relish With Kalamatas, Garlic, and Fresh Basil: July 21, 2015
This is really very nice spooned over a grilled steak; but you might could think about serving it plain (or with added feta cheese) on a cracker or crusty bread. Or spreading some on a sammich.

Artichoke and Spinach Casserole: April 14, 2020

Nigella’s Chicken gets paired with asparagus and baby Yukon Gold potatoes for a fine autumn dinner in next to no time.

Major veggie salad! The dressing is nice, with not too, too much sugar added.

Yeh; you could use the ‘lite’ stuff, but have you read what they put in it?

Carrots with Parsley and Catalina Dressing: January 6, 2010
You could offer this as a salad or side dish, but it’s a perfect crunchy little
nibble, and not too, too messy as finger food.
Parfait! French Carrots: May 2, 2014
I still prefer my carrots with the Catalina dressing, but this substitution is nice, and with no refined sugars, it’s probably a little better for you.

Cowboy Caviar Dip: July 10, 2023

Crêpes, Stuffed Manicotti-Style: June 11, 2013
Where to put this recipe? I made this version vegetarian, though the original called for a meat sauce; and in place of pasta tubes, we’re using crêpes, those lovely, thin Frnech pancakes. *sigh* Just resign yourself to finding this, praticular recipe in just about every section of this here table o’ frikkin’ contents. We strive for nothing if not overkill.

Duxelles: February 5, 2011

Serve this as part of an anti pasto platter with some crusty bread, a few good olives, assorted cured bits of pig, and mebbe even some Marinated Stuffed Cherry Peppers.

You want to make this vegetarian? Go ahead and skip the ground beef and the refried black beans and go with a can or two of drained black beans.

These were good, but I think I prefer the red chile sauce from the cheese & onion enchiladas below.

Enchiladas, Black Bean, Cheese and Onion: August 20, 2013
I borrowed at bit from the cheese and onion recipe below, used veggie stock throughout, and my new favorite way(s) with black beans to make for a fine and filling enchilada fit for a feast.

Haricots Verts With Garlic, Mustard, and Lemon Juice: April 3, 2013
