Ratatouille

One of my favorite Disney movie characters is Remy, the rat who aspired to become a chef in the movie Ratatouille.  That film brought recognition to the dish ratatouille, other than France where it originates.  It’s simply a stew made from vegetables and seasonings. It is delicious on its own, but can also be tossed into soups, cooked with eggs, and stuffed into sandwiches.  This is an easy recipe that can be varied according to what vegetables you have on hand.  When you make it, give a little salute to Remy!

Squash and Mushroom Galette

Galettes are one of my favorite things to make!  They’re like a pie without the pan, and you eat it like pizza.  This one is a savory gallette that is perfect as a vegetarian meal or as a side dish with dinner.  It’s also good for brunch!  The vegetable peeler makes beautiful “ribbons” from the squash that are light and airy on the pie, and the fresh herbs added at the end give it the perfect earthy flavor.

Potatoes Bathed in Filfel Chuma

On one of my trips to Israel I learned to make filfel chuma, a hot sauce of Libyan Jewish cuisine.  It has so many uses for cooking!  I make a batch of it and store it in a jar in my refrigerator.  You can spoon it into soups, sauces, over grilled meats and vegetables.

Chile and Coconut Green Beans

This is my all-time favorite green bean recipe that takes me back to one of my favorite countries, India.  The chiles and cumin provide a warm spice to the dish, and the coconut cools it all down.  It’s a perfect vegetarian dish, and if you make it for your friends and family, they’ll be begging for the recipe.
