On the Menu Tonight: Groovy Green Bowls


I’m making this for supper tonight.

I NEVER tire of green bowls/rice bowls with plenty of crunchy veggies, seasoned grilled tofu and a yummy peanut sauce.

I named this version for the online/newspaper column I was hosting a while back: Groovy Green Grub.¬† Lack of time didn’t allow me to continue with these columns but I note they are still online at several sites. Nice to see. ūüôā

¬†I make a sweet/sour peanut sauce with rice vinegar, organic peanut butter,tamari soy sauce and lots of spices for this. It’s the balance of sweet/sour that makes or breaks it. I stir up a bit¬†different combo every time. A dash of this, a pinch¬†of that… ¬†That’s the real fun of cooking, isn’t it? Tweaking and trying out new ideas!

The only veggies that (for me) are a must in this: asparagus and broccoli. Other than that, as long as it’s crunchy and green, works for me! And I¬†‚ô• eating with chopsticks! Slows me down to enjoy every bite LOL ūüėČ

What is your favorite rice bowl or stir-fry?

Quick and Easy Zucchini Stir-Fry

I’ve been getting a lot of requests lately for recipes that feature (and use up!) zucchini and the more the better! Seems that the short season this veggie appears leaves a lot of people wondering what to do with all these glorious ‘green wonders’.

Can you tell that I am a true zucchini fan?

Today I’m sharing a VERY¬†‘speedy’ ¬†main dish recipe, Quick and Easy Zucchini Stir-Fry.

If you have 30 minutes to get supper on the table but still want something satisfying, fresh and delicious, give this one a try. Yummy with a sprinkle of feta cheese on top (as in photo) for a nice flavor contrast. 

Also try: Zucchini and Cheddar Fettuccini, a yummy, rich and delicious main dish.

Happy¬†Cooking! ūüôā
