Sweet Pepper Asiago Zucchini Tots

Sweet Pepper Asiago Zucchini Tots ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #zucchini #recipe

When I did my kid-friendly cooking class and I shared my broccoli cheddar tots with my friends, I also made up a batch of these zucchini tots so my friends could sample the tots with a different “featured” veggie. Zucchini is marvelous in tots because it has such a mild flavor and it just soaks […]

Asian Quick Pickled Veggies ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #Asian #refrigerator #pickles #recipe

Adapted from Canning and Cooking at Home Slightly sweet (and spicy if add a few hot peppers to the mix), these Asian-style refrigerator pickles are so simple to make! No need to can, just heat and stir together the vinegar, sugar, & salt and pour them over the veggies, then refrigerate. (You don’t even have […]


Mushroom Broccoli Blue Cheese Bites

Mushroom Broccoli Blue Cheese Bites ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #mushroom #veggie #egg #bites #breakfast #snack #recipe

These delicious little bites are phenomenal tasting savory little egg muffin-ettes. They don’t HAVE to happen because you’re trying to eat right. But just in case you are trying to “eat healthier”, they do happen to be super nutritious and low in calories too. Personally, I made them because I’m trying to eat healthier and exercise […]


German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe}

German Onion Soup {Zwiebelsuppe} ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #German #onion #soup #recipe

The blonde cousin of French Onion Soup, this German Onion Soup (or Zwiebelsuppe as they would say in Germany) uses chicken or vegetable broth rather than beef broth and the subtle flavors of nutmeg and thyme to provide a touch of intrigue. Topped as most onion soups are with toasted bread and melty white cheese, this soup is […]


Mexican Fiesta Taco Soup

Mexican Fiesta Taco Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #festive #taco #soup #recipe

This is a festive soup with lots of flavor and spice, bits of vibrant color, with crunchy chips, melty cheese, avocado & cilantro on the top. Make it with taco meat to make a heartier soup, or without for a vegetarian option. The inspiration from this soup came from a Cinco de Mayo party on my facebook […]


Creamy Dubliner Ham & Veggie Bisque

Creamy Dubliner Ham & Veggie Bisque ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #ham #soup #recipe

This soup has it all! All that creamy, cheesy goodness from a Broccoli Cheese Soup, with that oh-so-intoxicating ham broth, bits of ham and lots of other veggies to really let the flavors shine (and support your health too!) Yes, I know it’s spring and today it’s beautiful and sunny, but just a few days […]

Halloween Veggie Tray with Mushroom "Skulls", Carrot "Fingers" and goblin eyes ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #halloween #party #idea

including 23 delicious dip ideas I was running about the Internet, searching for ideas for my Healthy Halloween cooking class, and I ran across some fun ideas for Halloween veggie trays. Carrots with an almond slice make nice “fingers” that can be used for dippers or sticking out of your dip bowl to look like a hand […]


Mushroom Bok Choy Breakfast Stirfry

Mushroom Bok Choy Breakfast Stirfry ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #healthy #breakfast #recipe

One morning I was heading home and I was craving veggies and protein. I considered a Chinese stirfry, but wanted something breakfast-like … so I DID make a stirfry and then I put an egg on top. I made myself a piece of toast to sop up the egg and the stir fry juices and […]


Goodbye Garden Soup with Sausage

Goodbye Garden Soup with Sausage ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

This Goodbye Garden soup is a farewell to the gardens that have brought such beauty and deliciousness to my table this fall. It is always a bittersweet time, using up the last of the fresh bounty from the garden. There is really nothing better than fresh produce from the garden, but then again, gardens just […]

with breadcrumbs & aged Dubliner (or Asiago) cheese Reposting this one from the “old blog” on wordpress.com  … It was one of those recipes that got screwed up in the move from free wordpress to here, so it needs to be shared again. The first time I made these scrumptious vegetables was an attempt to […]


Fire Roasting Tomatoes, Peppers &/or Eggplant

Fire Roasted Tomatoes

Fire roasting tomatoes and other vegetables is a great way to add a new dimension of smoky flavor to salsas, soups, dips and sauces and it’s quite easy to do. Someone asked me how you fire roast tomatoes, so I thought I would do a quick post to show how I do it. I’ve got […]


Cheddar & Smoked Gouda Roasted Vegie-wich

Cheddar & Smoked Gouda Roasted Vegie Sandwich

Do you want to know a secret? Those Tarragon & Sunflower Roasted Vegetables that I shared the other day? There’s a way to make them even better … I didn’t think it was possible, but my gosh they make an incredible sandwich. Put them on a good bun and then melt smoked cheese over the […]


Tarragon Sunflower Roasted Vegetables

Tarragon Sunflower Roasted Vegetables ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sides #recipe

with breadcrumbs & aged Dubliner (or Asiago) cheese The first time I made these scrumptious vegetables was an attempt to spruce up some of the excess vegies left over from the Blogiversary party. That time I used celery, carrots, cauliflower, onion and grape tomatoes and topped them with whole wheat breadcrumbs and Dubliner cheese. It […]
