This series, wherein I feature recipes from other blogs that I've made and enjoyed, is an idea that I completely ripped off from Kiersten at ohmyveggies. She does one every Friday.
I originally saw this over at cleaneatingveggiegirl. I didn't have bell pepper, so I used celery; I didn't have chili powder or cumin, so I used cayenne (whew - and I paid for that choice with a burning tongue!); I didn't have vegan sausage, so I added an egg at the very end and it turned out kinda like vegetable fried rice. All those changes - and it was still delicious! (Oh, and when I ate my second helping, I poured tomato sauce over the top, and that took the heat down a notch.)
Uhh, tomato sauce and some vegetables? Okay, you caught me - this isn't really a recipe. But it was yummy and I figured this is as good as place as any to include it. These were leftovers - pasta, corn, carrots, green beans, and tomato sauce - but so good, and a great way to use up all those random veggies I have hanging out in my fridge.
Baked Gnocchi & Cheese from the cutting edge of ordinary - yum! (My alternate name: Cheesy Pillows of Goodness.) For the most part, I followed the recipe, except I added turmeric (hence the yellow color) and used swiss, provolone, and parmesan cheese because I could find vegetarian versions of them. It's definitely rich though, so I'd recommend serving it with something lighter (I had it with broccoli and salad).
And I made one of my favorite soups - Vegetarian Olive Garden's Chicken & Gnocchi soup, but I used kale instead of spinach and added shredded cauliflower to thicken it up (Mr. Giraffe couldn't even tell it was there - I love sneaking vegetables in like that!). I must be on a gnocchi kick or something . .
Cooked anything good lately?
