re: Mouthwatering Boat Recipes (mainly plant based)

One of the secrets to making really good toasties in a sandwich-press is to butter the bread on the outside of the sandwich....

Hmm… haven't tried that - yet
Might have to give it a go - thanks!

Which type of cucumber do you prefer?

Horta

I have been very industrious on board this week with spring cleaning and provisioning for the summer, so toasties featured a couple of nights . I think apart from generously buttering the outside, the best toasties are made on a frypan, not sandwich maker. The edges don't get compacted and the cheese is free to just start to ooze out from the edges as it melts .

This next recipe is not actually one I made, but such an easy boat one that I thought I'd include it. After all the activity on board, I had the day off and played the lady of leisure with an afternoon in the sunshine at a waterfront taverna. This dish was one I ordered.

Horta is a staple in traditional Greek cuisine. It is simply washed wild greens lightly boiled, drained and seasoned with a squeeze of lemon juice, a generous splash of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt. Recipes don't get any more basic than that.

On walks I commonly see local ladies hunched over wielding short knives collecting greens on the roadside and stuffing them into plastic supermarket bags. Rich in vitamin K, I guess the benefits balance out the risks of parasites etc (goats commonly graze the same areas). If you are squeamish, don't look up "liver flukes" .

"At least 80 different kinds of greens are used, depending on the area and season, including: black mustard, dandelion, wild sorrel, chicory, fennel, chard, kale, mallow, black nightshade, lamb’s quarters, wild leeks, hoary mustard, charlock, smooth sow thistle and even the fresh leaves of the caper plant."

I haven't been game to collect wild greens (I have enough trouble identifying the greens in the grocery stores here, let alone the safe wild ones and all those goats are a bit off putting LOL), but greens prepared like this need not be wild and they are ideal both for those on a tight budget (lots of cruisers) and/or those giving their systems a little TLC after too many Easter eggs and sweet yeast loaves .

It doesn't really matter, but the cucumber should be cold straight from the fridge and the toast hot from the toaster...

Punjabi Rajma (kidney bean curry)

Ingredients:

1 cup or 200 g (8 oz) dried kidney beans (you can also use tinned)
1 medium onion, finely chopped

2 tsp oil
1 tsp butter
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 cup chopped tomatoes
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves (cilantro) to garnish

Method:

Wash and soak beans overnight (or for at least for 8 hours). Discard the soaking water and then cook the soaked beans in unsalted water until beans are tender (or open a large tin of beans at this point…). Reserve the "stock" so it can be used later.

I had the same thought when I woke up this morning and found the recipe posted, so I popped a mug of beans on to soak straight away .

I used black eyed beans rather than kidney, tinned tomatoes instead of fresh and skipped the cloves as they remind me of the dentist .

Instead of having this as a main meal with rice, I wanted a dip tonight so I mashed the cooked beans roughly with a potato masher and added just enough of the cooking liquid from the beans to give a good dipping consistency, simmered just 5 minutes instead of 30, then let it sit for a few hours for the flavours to develop and for it to cool.

Yum! A lovely fragrant curry with no heat. This was polished off in no time.
Thanks Weyalan .

Kale and cabbage with Salmon.

Spread on a flat tray.
2 teaspoonful of Olive oil.
Season to taste.


Place in 350F 180C oven for six minutes.

Take out and add 4-6 one inch thick slices of Salmon.

To add that slight hint of spice that the cloves bring, without the dentist flashbacks you could try adding 3 or 4 whole cardamon pods, or open the pods and extract the seeds and put the seeds in, or even add a 1/4 teaspoon of ground cardamon.

I also meant to add that tinned tomatoes were fine... if a moderator wants to wave the mod stick over the recipe.... ?

Wand has been waved .

Does anyone know where most of the flavour comes from with cardamom? Is it the pod itself or the seeds?

Well, the difference between the pod and the seeds boils down to quantity. Ingesting a whole pod ( containing hundreds of seeds) will make you burp cardamom for the next 24 hours. Just happen' to know ;-) I can't believe the skin of the pod has much taste at all, at least compared to the seeds.

Wonderful ingredient in many Indian curries and other stews.

Definitely the seeds, they add a wonderful flavour to chocolate mousse (sorry, can't post the recipe here as it isn't vegan!).
