Does my blog need two BLT recipes? Probably not. But these turned out so well.

We’re eating a lot of bok choy right now because of our CSA. I think the key to this recipe was slicing the bok choy lengthwise into thin strips.
A fun breakfast from the homemade cookbook that Eve made me. Mine are shaped a bit oddly because I’m not great at pancakes, hehe.
This is an easy side dish that’s good for using up greens and amping up the protein in a vegetarian meal.
I had some leftover ricotta hanging around from those stuffed squash blossoms, so I decided to google “leftover ricotta recipes”. I stumbled on this one from a reader on Chowhound and it was a big hit for Meatless Monday, paired with some white beans and greens (recipe to follow), as well as garlic bread. This would work as a sandwich as well (given I basically ate it with garlic bread in that fashion).
I picked up purple cauliflower at the market Saturday (though I may not have, had I realized the $8 price tag earlier…). On Sunday, I was lounging in front of the Food Network and Rachael Ray was making a tasty-looking pasta involving, believe it or not, purple cauliflower. Figured I’d give it a try.
I had two issues with the recipe (which tasted, great, by the way). One was the fact that my anchovies didn’t “melt” as much as Rachael’s did (maybe I should have finely chopped them before adding them to the pan). My sauce also broke because I turned the cream up too high. Neither problem interfered with this being a really nice, almost meatless pasta dish that feeds an army.
