Dinner: Zucchini Galette & Tofu Scramble

The BF picked up some weird summer squash from an urban homestead we get our eggs from this week.  He said it was kind of like zucchini, so I shredded it up to make a Zucchini Galette from this recipe at SeriousEats. I wasn’t liberal enough with the oil on the cast iron pan, so the egg stuck to it.

Dinner: Zucchini Galette & Tofu Scramble

Despite the ugliness, it was still very tasty.  But really, does anything baked with eggs in it not taste good?  I also scrambled up some tofu with leftover kale, beans, spicy vegan sausage, and mustard greens for a quick tofu scramble.  The BF thought it was too dry, but I thought it was okay.  Kinda funny that the scramble is vegan, but the zucchini dish is not.  We also had some sliced tomatoes on the side. Not my tomatoes though. They’re still green.

Dinner: Farro with Pesto

Pesto farro

I needed to give our stomachs a rest from the spicy dinner we had last night, so I made something pretty mild.  It’s something I made up to use the extra zucchini we had laying around: farro with pesto, grilled zucchini, and a poached egg.  The pesto was hand-pounded by me in a mortar and pestle.  I came up with it because it was about time I trimmed my basil plant.

Believe it or not, this was the first time I grilled zucchini.  It was on my cast iron grill pan on the stove, not on an actual open flame.  It came out pretty good with just a light brushing of olive oil and some salt.  That charred vegetable taste does add a lot to the veggie.

Overall, this was a fairly easy to make, successful dinner. It’s plain enough that it’s good for when we want something simple and bland.

Brunch: Fail Omelette

Brunch: Omelette

I tried to make an omelette in a wok today for brunch, but it was a fail omelette. The filling came out really well: sauteed peppers, onions, baked/spiced tofu, and some tomatoes thrown in at the end. The egg part came out not so well. It looked good in the pan, but broke apart while I was trying to slide it out. Next time, i think I’ll try making two smaller omelettes instead of the massive 5-egg omelette.
