This Week's Menu

Been working hard on the next menu for my Gourmet Vegetarian Lunch Delivery Service. Everything is organic and homemade. Here's what we are having.....


Brown Rice with French Lentils and Caramelized Onions
Citrus Marinated, Pressed Cabbage Salad
(I just love this rice and lentil dish. I have made it with brown rice and green lentils, red rice with brown lentils and am now going to try out this 3rd version. French Lentils are prettier and smaller than the green/brown ones. They are speckled when raw and then lose the speckles and turn more green when cooked.)

Quinoa Salad with Local Jersey Cucumbers, Tomatoes and Corn
(I love working with quinoa, especially for vegans and vegetarians since it is a complete protein super food as it contains all nine essential amino acids. It tastes great warm or cold and will be complemented by our local produce. I am also going to use some beautiful heirloom tomatoes in this dish.)

Millet and Vegetable Croquettes
Crunchy Cauliflower Slaw with Dill Dressing
(the creaminess of the dill dressing on the cauliflower will go great with the crunchy, fried croquettes!)


Double Sesame Skillet Red Rice with Baby Lima Beans and Greens
(the rich undertones of toasted sesame oil along with a topping of sesame seeds on the rice make up the "double" sesame theme for today. I am hoping to find fresh lima beans, but if not, dried will do just fine)

Zucchini Noodles with Cashew “Alfredo” Sauce
with Pan Fried Tofu Sticks
(This is a mainly raw dish. The spaghetti "noodles" are made on a
saladaco, and then topped with the cashew sauce making it a raw version of fettuccine alfredo. It is a great summertime dish. The cashew sauce also goes well over real pasta!)

Dessert: Zucchini Bread with some organic chocolate chips thrown in.
