Quick 'n Easy, Down 'n Dirty Dinner

What's for dinner? It's Sunday.  We had a nice relaxing day.  The weekend is winding down.  And neither Tiffany nor I want to make a fuss for dinner.  What are we to do?

Make it simple, make it quick, and make it vegetarian of course!  Let's use items that we have on-hand and dinner must be easy to prepare.  Tiffany and I made a quick Tomato and Grilled Zucchini Pizza and Spicy Miso Soup with Tofu and Greens.

Tomato and Grilled Zucchini Pizza

(Sorry for the over exposure.)
  • 1 pre-made pizza crust
  • 3 Tbsp pesto sauce
  • 1 tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1 zucchini, grilled slices sprinkled with Bragg's seasoning
  • Shredded cheese, miscellaneous from fridge.

I've got to give Jenn over at full credit.  In my case, I used what I had on-hand:  red miso paste, red onion, collard green, fresh ground pepper, nutritional yeast flakes and smoked tofu.  I took liberty to added some seaweed flake into my preparation for added health.  

Jenn, your soup recipe totally rocks!  Thanks!  It's going to be a quick and easy staple in our household.

Mmm... Both were delicious and Tiffany and I have enough left over to reheat for another meal!  I love left-overs.  I've always felt that the spices and flavors have a chance to mingle while resting in the refrigerator.

Hi-dee hi-dee it doesn't have to be difficult-ho my friends!

  1. Congratulations on becoming a vegetarian. As my husband would say welcome to the dark side; as he scarfs down my cooking. I'm always on the hunt for good recipes.

    Thanks for visiting my blog today. I try to post something vegetarian every Monday. It might be a recipe or suggestions about traveling (something I do for work too much) or dining out.
