Now before you all start chanting "You don't win friends with salad!" at me in a conga line, understand that I too was once perplexed at the idea that salad could be delicious. No longer. I'm going to share my salad recipes with you and hopefully you'll have the same tasty epiphany that I did.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of vegetarian posts.
In which Megan wrestles with a frittata, plays a dangerous game with goat cheese, and tackles a taco salad.
Today's the day to have foods served inside other foods! Eggs inside toast, bananas inside buns, and cheese and spinach inside layers of noodles! Forgive me for the lunch "recipe" — Thursdays are busy days and I'm on the go all day long, so I needed a quick lunch that would be easy to take with me. Plus, I've always wanted to try Ariel's Pee-Wee Herman-approved banana dog. ("Viral banana dog" is a great band name, btw.)
Remember our April patron Jackie? She shared with me her easy go-to lasagne recipe for din-din.
Remember that granola I made the first day? It's coming back to play! It's a totally Megan-simple breakfast morning — granola cereal, and I'm going to share with you the trick my dad taught me for making scrambled eggs with only ONE dish to wash afterwards. For lunch and dinner we're making a "delicious sauce thing" and the "vaguely Middle-Eastern dinner."
I have a feeling that making this frittata is going to take me FOREVER, and it's going to be too big for just one Megan to eat on my own for breakfast. So we're going to make this recipe a two-fer: breakfast and lunch. Then, since it's Tuesday — the day the lord hath made for tacos — Jessica gave us her recipe for a meatless taco salad. Of course, feel free to use real meat, it'll taste just as delicious!
Hey Homies! I know it's a Sunday, and we rarely ever post anything on a Sunday, but it's a special week on Offbeat Home & Life. It's the week of Megan's Cooking Challenge, the second. Here's how we're breaking this down…
It seems my friends make EVERYTHING with kale — salads, risottos, pastas, and even drinks. I go to my buddy Jessica's house once a week so that she can make sure I'm eating at least one meal that's not microwavable, and this time I stopped drinking wine long enough to document her incredible kale salad recipe. (Not only that, but we got a little creative and made a cocktail out of the leftover kale stocks.)
