Zucchini and Beef Patties

Zucchini and Beef Patties

Traditionally for a zucchini season a zucchini recipe: a cross between meat patties and zucchini pancakes, so to speak. For the times you want to eat some meat but also want to get your veggies in as well.

They turn out very tender and juicy. Pair great with any potatoes or grain sides. Work good on buns, however will be too soft for grilling, so just fry them as recipe explains.

I prepared these with beef, but I think chicken or turkey or mix of meats (whatever you like more) will work here as well.

Scrambled Eggs with Asparagus, Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Scrambled eggs is one of these things one can easily throw together and be creative about it: the fridge content is the only limit, really.

And asparagus is my new go to for scrambled eggs lately. It pairs well with mushrooms and vegetables, and eggs themselves of course.

So here you go: a recipe for scrambled eggs with asparagus and mushrooms. Feel free to follow the steps, or tweak it one way or another.

Perfect pork roast made of few ingredients: turns out juicy and tasteful. It is pretty easy to cook, doesn’t require much cooking skills if any at all.

This pork roast tastes great warm fresh from the oven, as well as cooled down. Pairs well with roasted vegetables or a salad.

Chickpea Garam Masala

One of the easiest chickpea recipes to make, yet so tasty one. This vegetarian dish will require a little less than 20 mins of cooking.

It can be served on its own, with a bit of bread, or as a side for boiled rice or quinoa.

I think this is one of traditional Indian recipe. Tweak the taste to your liking by adjusting amount of spices or even spices themselves. The recipe calls for garam masala, but a good curry powder will work as well.

I always soak and boil chickpeas myself, drain them before using here (preserve a bit of water they were cooking in). Using canned ones is an option as well, it will certainly be quicker. If going this route, use water at step 10.

It is green and delicious, it is spinach quiche.

Great recipe for weekend breakfast or brunch, when you want to eat something tasty without spending too much time and effort preparing it.

If you prefer quiches baked in crust, it will work too, just bake the crust, pour mixture in and cook according to directions below.

These ingredients will fit in 9-10 inch pan. Depending on how hungry you are, it will feed from 2 to 4 people.

Tomato and Cheese Stuffed Pork Loin

Creative way to stuff pork loin – slice it up like a “book”, marinate, put tasty ingredients in between “pages” and then roast.

I stuffed pork loin with tomato slices, shredded cheese and sliced thin garlic cloves for a hint of spice.

For this recipe meat is marinated for about 12 hours before cooking. So allow some time for that, you will not be disappointed.

Baked Cod in Tomato Sauce

Baked Cod in Tomato Sauce

Perfect recipe for pretty much any white fish: easy to cook and turns out tasty and juicy.

I used cod here. Marinating cod in lemon juice helps to bring out nice texture and make sure it is soft.

Sometimes cod can torn out chewy after cooking, but it is not a case with this recipe.

Pair baked cod with boiled or roasted potatoes and a glass of nice wine for a romantic dinner.
