Vegetable Tian

Vegetable Tian
This is a recipe I adapted from one I found in “Barefoot in Paris”. We had friends over for dinner so I served this Vegetable Tian and it was a HUGE hit. The veggies were perfectly roasted, the potatoes were nice and tender and the caramelized onions were sweet and salty. The whole dish was delicious and it looked really pretty too. 2 tbsp olive oil (divided)1 large sweet yellow onion cut in half and sliced2 cloves of garlic, minced1-2 russet potatoes, unpeeled1 zucchini1 yellow squash3 large Roma tomatoesSea salt, freshly cracked black pepper, to tasteDried thyme, to taste1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Slice the potatoes, zucchini, squash and tomatoes in 1/4 inch thick slices. Cover the dish with tin foil and bake for 35 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

Portobello Sliders Want another slider recipe? Yeah, I know, I know.

This one is super simple. And definitely grill-friendly. A simple olive oil marinade (I went with the basics here, but you can adjust the seasoning of the marinade to your liking.) Hope you all have a great Labor Day Weekend!

grilled lamb kebabs + tzatziki What do you do to prepare for a baby? We’ve talked about it endlessly this summer, and I have no doubt you’re out there thinking, “my goodness, has she still not had that baby yet?” Tell me about it. But really, how do you get ready? Do you try to figure out learn how to cook respectable meals in a minimum of time? Among the many slightly absurd ways we’ve been getting ourselves ready, we decided that we needed to clear out our DVR queue last week, to make room for all of the shows we’ll likely be missing the first runs of. I’ve had the fiercest Greek food cravings since I’ve been pregnant. P.S. One year ago: Eggs in Tomato SauceTwo years ago: Chocolate BabkaThree years ago: Outrageous Brownies Yogurt-Marinated Lamb Kebabs Adapted, barely, from Ina Garten The yogurt-marinated lamb kebabs were ridiculously juicy and tangy and the tzatziki was, hands down, the best I have ever eaten. Prepare a charcoal grill with hot coals. Serve with salad, grilled pitas and tzatziki (below).

The little black shellfish are easy to cook; the only trick is to sort them carefully beforehand. Toss out any cracked shelled mussels, as well as any open ones that don’t close up tight when you squeeze them. The beards are the tough little fibers that help mussels cling to rocks; to remove them, just pinch the hairy fibers with a clean kitchen towel and pull. Don’t do this much before cooking, though, because the mussels can’t survive long after they’ve been plucked. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 3 large leeks, whites and light greens only, thinly sliced, rinsed, drained Kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper 2 garlic cloves, sliced 1 1/2 teaspoon Madras curry powder 2 1/2 pounds mussels, beards removed 1/2 cup canned unsweetened coconut milk 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves (for serving) View Step-by-Step Directions

Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe Zucchini Parmesan Crisps | Healthy Recipes | Snack Recipes The following content was Provided by "We're Not Penny Pinching, We're Benji Pinching!" Zucchini is in abundance this time of year and we were looking for a great munchie that was healthy, unique and easy to make and these zucchini parmesan crisps really hit the spot! Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention and other times, it's just a matter of trying to figure out what you're going to do with an overabundance of a single ingredient when your family has vowed to run away if you serve it just one more time! If you slice the zucchini at a slight angle the topping seems to stick to it just a bit better and they crisp evenly. If you have asiago cheese or romano cheese you could easily substitute these for a slightly different flavor. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Slice the zucchini into 1/4-inch thick rounds.

Recipe for Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake When I noticed how many people are visiting my round-up of 20 Zucchini Recipes I knew it was time to share this fantastic new zucchini recipe called Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake, recommended by my sister Pam. She found the recipe in Penzeys Back to School 2011 Catalog , where it was submitted by Karen Niessing. Pam changed the recipe a little and then I changed it a tiny bit more, and we were both impressed with how this very basic idea of tossing zucchini with a few fresh and dried herbs and cheese and then baking it can produce a dish that's so delicious. I could make an entire meal of this, but it would also be perfect as a zucchini side dish, and Pam told me she ate some of her leftovers for breakfast one day. If you have zucchini from your garden or the farmers market, you must try this! This was my latest picking of zucchini and straightneck squash, and I used the four in the front in this recipe. The recipe called for dried basil. Instructions: Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
