Vegetarian Weekend

Sometimes, without really meaning to, we have vegetarian weekends. This tends to happen most often during the hottest days in summer when we are looking for light, easy-to-cook meals. (Of course, BBQ is also an alternative.) 

Last year, I think we went 5 or 6 days just eating veggie meals. This year, we just had a streak of 3 days.

Here are a few of the better recipes that we gravitate to:

For the Tomato Tart, for example, we just use store-bought puff pastry or make a simple savory pie dough then spread a little Dijon mustard on it. Add some grated Gruyere cheese and top with slices of fresh tomato. Salt and pepper on top and bake it. That's it. You can decorate it with some basil or parsley if you want. Simple is best. Of course, this basic recipe could use mushrooms instead of tomatoes, or even asparagus or caponata!

Or, put your favorite veggie ingredients on pizza dough and cook it on the grill.
