Juicer fun

I just received my Breville  juicer for the first time.  It worked so quickly, I was amazed.  I threw in two peaches, sans pits, and some pineapple. It foamed up like a shake and I was delicious. Will try a vegetable drink tomorrow.

Finally! A great Turkish Delight

One of my favorite local restaurants is Zeytin's, a Turkish place that has some wonderful  vegetarian entrees. I always get the stuffed eggplant when I go there.  I found an easy recipe that closely mimics my favorite dish.  You cover a split eggplant ( cut side  up)with sautéed onions, diced tomatoes (I used a  can of diced tomatoes)and garlic that you have cooked in olive oil until onions translucent.  The more onions and garlic the better.  I also diced half a green pepper too.  Add a cup of water and cover it with aluminum foil. The recipe called for 40 minutes, but a good hour is really needed.  You want the eggplant to be like custard and wonderfully creamy. I served it with jasmine rice.
