My Il's brought us 2 huge bunches of broccoli rabe a couple of weeks ago. One bunch I cooked just sauteed with garlic, but I made this pasta dish as well.
pasta with garlicky broccoli rabe (https://smittenkitchen.com/2012/04/pasta-with-garlicky-broccoli-rabe/)

I followed the recipe pretty close to how it was written with one exception. Instead of quickly sauteing the garlic in the olive oil, I sliced the cloves (I used a lot more than called for but we love garlic) super thin and tossed then in warmed olive oil. I let that "steep" the entire time I was cooking and the olive oil was infused with the flavor. I also used pink Himalayan sea salt and only 1/4 tsp of red pepper, and let the family add more at the table.

It's difficult to me to translate the process of cooking so will give you this link direct to the blog of great chef which I follow in Instagram ~ Kathryne Taylor (http://cookieandkate.com/).
I'm happy to share also my Pinterest board (https://www.pinterest.com/felisdarkmoon/crafts/), but it isn't only for cook, sorry.

I started following you, felis- love the crochet ideas you pinned. :)

Honey Sesame Tofu (http://domesticsuperhero.com/honey-sesame-tofu/)


This is the PITA but worth it recipe that I make - tofu for Caitlyn and chicken for the rest of the family.
I double the marinade recipe and keep *everything* separate- two bowls, cookie sheets, frying pans. But it is really yummy. I have used boneless, skinless breasts (too dry) and prefer boneless, skinless thighs. I leave out the oyster sauce since Cait hates anything fish-y and my supermarket doesn't carry a veggie option of that even if she did.
One thing I do is prep and marinate everything early in the day so I don't end up standing on my feet for hours at the end of the day. The longer you marinate the tofu, the better flavor it has, or so Cait says :) (Personally, I can't stand the texture)
put over brown rice- and good meal.

Oh that's so sweet, thank you! I already follow you from previous O Birthday party or maybe was Christmas one, I'm not exactly sure.

It's great to see some fellow vegetarians. I've been a vegetarian for 30 years now. I got a an instant pot 18 mths ago and added a 2nd last year. We now make homemade Indian dishes that were extremely expensive in restaurants. Plus the volume provides an opportunity to freeze some meals or have lunches during the week.
Cooking foods of many ethnicity like Mexican, Greek, Indian etc give more options and flavor to vegetarian cooking.
this reminds me I need to scrap more of my recipes- here is one

It's wonderful to find this thread at the O. Great recipe suggestions and beautiful food layouts. I've been WFPB (whole food plant based) for the past three years due to health problems. I pretty much follow the Dr. John McDougall plan. I was bent over at the waist every morning, having to use a walker to get around, until I could straighten up in the afternoon. I also had carpal tunnel so badly I would cry when using my mouse, when I could use it at all. In less than a month I donated the walker, and within a couple more months the carpal tunnel was completely gone, never to return. I was convinced of the health benefits of eating this way and will most likely do so the remainder of my days. I love the recipes of Shane Martin (no relation), of Shane & Simple. Even my non-WFBP son and family love his Banana and Zucchini Bread. https://shaneandsimple.com/recipes/

Betty Jo, thank you sooo much for reviving this thread.
I am looking up Dr. McDougall right now, I have his website right here : https://www.drmcdougall.com/health/education/free-mcdougall-program/

My husband was recently diagnosed with Chrohn's Disease (on top of Lyme and Type 1 Diabetes- yippee :faint:) and that all makes food/menu planning more complicated. He didn't show any gluten intolerance but feels much better when he is gluten-free. I think that this might be helpful to him!

Oh my, Chris, I do hope your husband finds the help he needs to cope with all of this. Dr McDougall's forum is here and very informative: https://www.drmcdougall.com/forums/


On the forum be sure to check out Jeff Novicks section, as it's full of helpful information.


I don't have a gluten intolerance either, but feel much better without it. So, I pretty much avoid it. I cook with other gluten-free grains, flours, etc. I occasionally have something made with wheat, like a hamburger bun with veggie burgers when I have visitors, but it's rare. I do use partial wheat flour in my banana and zucchini bread I make for my son and family, as they have no problems with it. I eat a small amount and never bring any of it back home with me.


My sister has also been diagnosed with Chrohn's Disease. She went plant based for a while and did much better. But, she couldn't stick with it, went back to her old way of eating, and drinking, and now suffers with the disease and also may now have cancer. :sad:



As Dr McDougall says, "It's the food." I think he's on to something. :smile:
