I was shopping with Jan and she saw these mini bell peppers. She wanted them stuffed for her Mother’s Day meal. I decided that I would fill them with taboulah.

When Jan went to Sonoma a few months ago, she bought me some Istanbul Turkish Salad Seasoning from Whole Spice. I was planning to make a typical tomato and cucumber salad with it, but in searching the Whole Spice site I found their posted recipe. Of course, I could not make it the way they did, but it gave me ideas.
I used half a head of cauliflower in the soup I was making this Sunday. I decided that I would make a side dish with the rest, but it was not quite enough to feed five people. I also had some green beans, left over from earlier in the week, but also not enough for a separate dish. Finally, the strawberries I bought on Saturday needed to be used up, because they were quickly starting to go bad. Of such happen stance, a new dish is created.
I am planning a buttermilk roasted chicken tonight. I wanted a green vegetable to go with it and green beans came to mind. This Sunday, Miriam served us her marinated strawberries and steamed green beans. I thought: Why serve them separately?

I am making Moroccan stuffed vegetables and I wanted a dish for the starch eaters in my home. I found this recipe on-line and my first thought was to make it Californian, raw vegetables and starch with a dressing. As I read through the directions I began to understand the appeal of the lightly sautéed vegetables. Still, I could not help myself from making some changes.
2 tsp. Fresh chives, chopped fine
1 tsp. Fresh or dried dill
4-5 Tbs. Mayonnaise
1. Mix first 5 ingredients well and refrigerate until serving.
2. Trim and halve artichokes. Rub cut surfaces with the lemon to prevent them from turning brown. Steam the artichokes, until a knife slides into the thickest part of the cap easily, 15 – 20 minutes.
3. Serve with sauce on the side.
