Tomato Tart with Zucchini Parmesan Soup

Tomato Tart with Zucchini Parmesan Soup

Editors Note: Today’s post is a guest post by the wonderful Debra Clark.  She writes a great food blog at Bowl-Me-Over.

My name is Debra Clark and I am so excited for the opportunity to guest post on the Healing Tomatoes blog! 

I went back and forth about what to make….I wanted to make something that included tomatoes….but I wanted to also make something in a bowl. Since it’s nearly fall and I’m already starting to think about soups and stews.

I decided upon the best of both worlds…a Tomato Tart with a delicious bowl of Zucchini Parmesan Soup!  Mmmmm!!!!

Greek Nachos

greek-nachos

Nachos are my biggest weakness.  I have never eaten nachos that I didn’t like.

Today, I am experimenting with Greek Nachos.  This recipe is all about comfort food, Mediterranean style.  Even the Greek gods loved to indulge in the carb heavy dishes, once in a while.

I almost added chick peas to this recipe then decided against it because this dish already has a heavy layer of hummus. If, however, you decide to go with the beet hummus, then, pack the nachos with chick peas.

Sometimes, the best recipes come from trying new things.  Besides, a have known many vegetarians who are protein deficient.

I am one of them.

7 Delightful Vegetarian Mediterranean Cuisine Dishes

Mediterranean Cuisine

To put it mildly, it has been a fun adventure being a vegetarian in a world where omnivores are, well, omnipresent.

There are people in my life who are amazed that I lived in NYC for over a decade and remained a vegetarian! It is a common misconception amongst the uninitiated that NYC only caters to meat-eaters.

Nothing could be further from the truth! In fact, NYC is far more accommodating to vegetarians than Florida.

Let the hate and fan mail sending begin!

Let us talk cheat days!

We all have cheat days, whether we like to admit it or not.  Cheat days serve so many purposes and they make the tough times that much more bearable.

Diets have never been for me because I love food toooooo much.  I know that depriving myself of oooey gooey cheese or yummy starchy potatoes will never work.  I am willing to bet that you are the same way.

Potato Salad

Vegan Potato Salad, Potato Salad

Two things I would like to share on today’s blog:

1) Food blogging is a good excuse to go shopping

2) In supermarkets, vegetables are always screaming at me to buy them.  The funny thing is that I actually feel bad when I don’t pick them!

The other day, I was walking around in the supermarket looking for inspiration.  I wanted to find something unique that will go with vegan mayo.

And I came up with a potato salad!

Vegan Mayonnaise

Vegan Mayo Vegan Mayonnaise

Every time I see a vegan or vegetarian version of coleslaw, it is always made with yogurt.  I don’t see anything wrong with it.  In fact, some of those coleslaw dishes are very delicious.

Having said that tiny disclosure, I always prefer eating coleslaw with mayo.  There is a timeless tradition of using eggs in mayonnaisse and that makes it hard for vegetarians or vegans to consume it.

Mediterranean Tomato Salad

We have all heard how great a Mediterranean diet is for the human body.

All those olives and olive oils make for a very healthy heart plus a healthy body.

This diet is also very conducive to vegetarians. I know I will never starve to death if I were vacationing in Greece.

A vacation in France, on the other hand, would force me to eat bread all the time.

Blueberry Vinaigrette

I will be the first to tell you that I don’t like Blueberries!

I love every fruit made by nature or man, but, blueberries just make me run for the hills.

The old adage about “facing your fears” or in my case, “facing my aversion” came to mind.  After all, I created this blog so that I could get outside my comfort zone, didn’t I?
