Just Another Meatless Monday

Posted on

As opposed to a manic Monday.  It turned out we had another night with dinner not including meat on the plate, and didn’t miss it.  Particularly, when it is hot and humid, we don’t like heavy dishes.  Meat dishes tend to be that way, at least in our house.

What did we do Monday night?

Watermelon, feta and mint salad.  Refreshing, light, made with goat’s milk feta from the Lancaster market. Take feta, watermelon, fresh mint, add good olive oil, salt, pepper, and at the last minute before serving, lime juice. Don’t add the lime early or it will pickle the watermelon.

This feta was so good. If you have the opportunity to visit the Lancaster Farmers Market, buy some.

I grilled the CSA kohlrabi, with apple and garam masala, on a baking sheet for 30 minutes at 500 degrees. It really does taste like cabbage, but milder. The Indian spice mix gave it a good flavor.

We quickly grilled a naan with garlic scape pesto spread on it, as our bread part of the meal.

Served with a lovely 2011 Linden Avenius Sauvignon Blanc.

A tasty grilled meal.

About AnnieRie

Retired, I am following my dream of living in quiet west Howard County, a rural oasis, not far from the urban chaos, but just far enough. I love to cook, bake, garden, and travel. I volunteer at Howard County Conservancy. I lead nature hikes, manage programs and show children all the wonders of nature, and the agricultural connection to their food.

  1. The feta from Bowling Green is very good too. We had an asparagus and feta omelet for a treat today.

    Tried the fresh mozzarella from South Mountain Creamery. MUCH better than what you get at the grocery. Thanks for the recommendation.
