Parmesan Eggplant Meatballs
I was super irritated the last few summers with the meager
supply of eggplants at my local big box garden center. Am I really the only

Festive Portobello Mushroom Wellington from Bosh!
The most difficult part of this beautiful recipe is finding
chestnuts. I had never used chestnuts in any capacity, so I was really

Cauliflower Bisque (Love Soup, by Anna Thomas)

Cheesy Cauliflower Mash Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms
For whatever reason, my zucchini plants have produced tons of male
flowers and very few female flowers the past few years. The male flowers have

Parmesan and Herb Mashed Cauliflower Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms
I live in a tiny village. One small grocery store (that does
not carry tofu), one small Dollar Store (that sells great canned refried
