BLOG BITES. What is this? It’s a Momelet


Lots of food left over in our PH Suite at the Hilton Grand Vacation in Vegas. So what to do, hmmm? Let’s see what’s in the fridge…

ORG. Eggs
Org. Baby Spinach (raw in a bag/box)
Sundried Tomatoes in OO
Soy-Sation “Cheese” Alternative
Cranberry Macadamia Nut Artesian Bread – fresh from a bakery (any flavor YOU like can be used)

Wet the Spinach, throw it in the fry pan on Med-High, cover to steam for a couple of min. til wilted Cut up the Sundried Tomatoes – a scissor works best.
Take Spinach off the pan-place on 1 of the plates you’ll use to eat.
Put Sundried Tomatoes in pan with a little of their oil to crisp up, maybe 3 min.
Put in 3 eggs (for 2 people) and stir up til almost cooked to your liking, add Spinach back in to incorporate. Now that it’s done, sprinkle the Soy “cheese”, cover and turn off. Let it’s own heat melt it and in a few minutes when you take the cover off, it will have fluffed up just like an omelet.
While you wait, slice the bread and toast it nicely, then drizzle some of OO from the Sundried Tomatoes on the toast. Now portion the Momelet on and savor the flavors without any condiments ­čśë

*Blog Bites- because there was only 1 bite left before I realized I forgot to take a picture for this. It really was superb and looked a lot better in it’s entirety.

*Momelet = Mom’s Omelet (lol?)

Vegetarian Spinach Cakes


So, it’s not that I haven’t been preparing, cooking nor eating this past week. But I will tell you that blogging is like exercising for me. You have to get used to making time for it and you HAVE to practice writing the blog posts. So, I commit to you and me, that I will be more diligent and focused. For Easter we went out but I made some really good Spinach “cakes”. They’re more like a “burger” or pattie than a “cake”. So this is what you need to make these tasty morsels:

2 lbs. fresh SPINACH – I get the 1 lb. Organic box at COSTCO – the most cost effective
1 med. ONION – minced- I use a gadget for this
2 TBSP OO
2 EGGS beaten
2 TBSP GARLIC minced
1/2 a WHITE SWEET POTATO (red skinned and big)- mashed and cooled(I had this from breakfast the day before. Use what you find in your kitchen)
4 oz. VEGGIE GRATED Parmesan FLAVOR Cheese Alternative – from the Produce area
1 tspn fresh ROSEMARY minced
1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs ,plus for dredging- I don’t buy bread(I just bring it home when we eat bc they’re supposed to throw it away) I freeze it to use for this purpose. Just toast up really crunchy and cool before putting in Cuisinart to make the crumbs
S and P to taste

This is what you have to do:

OVEN @ 350F

Combine all ingredients and form into patties, dredge in additional breadcrumbs and sautee in small amt. of OO. When completed put on a cookie sheet in oven for 20 min. Until hot inside. I served it with beautiful Florida avocado slices. Or you can use a LITTLE BIT of homemade tomato sauce.
We picked the tomatoes fresh and Organic from the Farm.

Passover “Chopped Vegetarian Liva”


I want to share with the good folks celebrating Passover this delish dish. A WARNING = it’s soooo good that you might want to eat the entire portion without sharing, but that’s not what this holiday is about. ┬áMy friend sent me a text that sums it up: “It’s a time to organize the drawers of your heart and Spirit to get rid of all the things that got sour. Rise above your difficulties and open your soul to bloom again”. When you want to eat this, close your eyes and open your mind and take a taste and then another and another. I’m sure your soul and your Spirit will rejoice.

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS DELISH DISH:

6 TBSP  Vegetable Oil

3 ONIONS chopped

1  3/4 cups frozen EDAMAME

1 cup GREEN BEANS

15 WALNUTS

3 (peeled) Hard Boiled EGGS

Salt and Pepper to taste

THIS IS WHAT YOU DO WITH IT ALL:

Heat the oil at MED heat, when all silky, add Chopped ONIONS (my son, the Chef, said to always put a little Kosher Salt to sweat the onions, which brings out their sweetness.  Cook until soft, add EDAMAME, GREEN BEANS, Salt and Pepper. Continue to cook until the Green Beans and Edamame are not so green anymore.

I let the ONION mixture and Hard Boiled EGGS cool a bit and then put in FOOD PROCESSOR, add WALNUTS and mix until it looks like a rough paste. Add a little oil if it looks dry. 

Serve with your favorite Matzo.
