Vegetable Lasagna Cupcakes

Vegetable Lasagna Cupcakes
How about a couple of cupcakes for dinner? I haven’t made lasagna in ages but after seeing the oh-so-cute Petite Lasagnas at Can You Stay For Dinner?, I just had to make a vegan version. Super easy to make using wonton wrappers, the mini lasagnas bake in about ten minutes or so. I didn’t bother to replace the meat in the sauce called for in the original recipe, I just went with vegetables – fresh shiitake mushrooms and baby zucchini from the farmers market. Once cool enough to handle, you can actually pick one up and eat it without a fork. I only wish the Daiya cheese was a little more melted (I would have left it in the oven for a bit longer but the tips of the wontons were getting to be pretty brown and I have a very touchy smoke detector). Vegetable Lasagna CupcakesMakes 12 24 wonton wrappers 1 cup pasta sauce or spaghetti sauce 1/4 cup of your favorite cheese To make the vegetable filling, heat a wok or sauté pan to hot. Next, make the tofu ricotta. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Related:  potatoes and vegetables

Eatwell Recipe 24: Provençal Vegetable Tian ~ The Garden of Eating - a sinfully good blog about food Several years ago, I clipped a recipe for vegetable tian from a Martha Stewart Living mag -- it just looked too pretty to pass up. Unfortunately, it's been languishing in my recipe file ever since then. Since we received some lovely-looking tomatoes, zucchini, onions and the very first aubergine (eggplant) of the season in this week's produce box and we also happen to have potatoes and garlic left over from a previous produce box, it seemed like the perfect time to finally give this yummy recipe a try. The tian originated in Provence in the south of France and is similar to a gratin except for the fact that it does not include bread crumbs or cheese (though you can top it with gruyere if you like which is also very tasty). The baking concentrates the flavors of the vegetables so it is a great dish in which to showcase truly tasty veggies (but not a great dish to make if you have to use supermarket fare which often tends to taste kind of bland.) Provençal Vegetable TianServes 4 Ingredients

How was your VDay? And those tender crispy balls from RFD really inspired me to post one of my favorite easy veggie burger recipes. So today, I woke up. Easy Burger. I pan-fry.
