I found this recipe in an Aussie food rag. If you don’t like grams, try about 12 cherry tomatoes and a regular family sized mess of green beans. I haven’t figured out how Aussies decide whether to use metric or English. Seems metric for weight and English for volume? Anyway this salad was a pleaser. I’d say if you spiked it up with tempeh it would be a meal on its own.

Holy Moses Molly O’Neill found me

This post is for everybody, but especially my Foodbuzz friends. Please read it to the end.

Today I am totally blown away! Here I am this little unknown food blogger ranting on to mostly myself and a few local friends so I can glom the recipes into a nice PDF to give to friends for Christmas and suddenly this person called Adina Genn leaves a comment on my pozole recipe and says she wants to phone interview me about it and and its attendant mole recipe on behalf of the legendery Molly O’Neill.

In case you’ve been living in Pleasantville, Quinoa (pronounced Keen-Wa) is a high protein grain from South America. I predict more and more of it in North American cuisine as people gradually begin to catch on to its tremendous nutrition potential.

This is my first go at poaching someone else’s recipe from keyingredient.com. The problem with KI is that you cannot specify when searching that you only want to see recipes with pictures. For blogging purposes, I am only interested in recipes with visuals. Too many of KI’s recipes do not have pictures for me to spend much there time searching, but here is one I stumbled on with an awesome picture, and it’s an awesome vegetarian (not vegan) recipe as well. I’ve requested that KI make a filter that will only pass recipes with pictures, and I hope they will implement it soon. Recipes exist to be spread. If this contributor didn’t want it spread she wouldn’t have made it public! Spread mine all you want! Embed them in your own blog. Needless to say I friended the author of this one!

Gazpacho du jour

When I make gazpacho, I usually vary the ingredients and proportions depending what I have on hand. The one pictured is heavy on the cukes. We had a killer frost and I had to bring the rest of them in. I based it on someone else’s recipe just to make sure I didn’t forget anything critical.
