Here’s a selection of photos from meals for the past couple of weeks. Recipes for all will appear over the course of the next few days. The best part is that you can make most of them in 30 minutes or less.
A note to followers of this blog who are vegan — two of the photographs below are vegan recipes: the fennel salad and the pan-roasted mushrooms. The celery and garbanzo bean salad can be made vegan by omitting the cheese. As for myself, I am what I call, “an almost vegetarian”. That is to say, my diet these days is about 70% lacto-ovo vegetarian/30% meat. I’ll never be a full-bore vegetarian as I consider myself an omnivore, but I think a good compromise is meeting people halfway. All recipes on this food blog use products that are organic (and with respect to meat and fish, antibiotic-free and free-range, or raised/farmed/caught via sustainable methods).
