Cooking with Dad…

20 Jun

One of the things my dad taught me was to celebrate with experiences rather than gifts…  Malls and stores are filled with people looking for that perfect shirt, pant, perfume, etc.

I believe in celebrating special moments in your life with food – a meal, a cookout, a get-together with the family and/or friends…  Here are a few ideas for you to cook something to celebrate the Dads in your life…

All these ideas taste “meaty and substantial”, but they’re all vegetarian.

And if you’re not feeling the pasta /mushroom vibe, like apparently I was feeling when rounding up these recipes, you can certainly go the international route with:

Galician Empanada

Cashew and Tofu Stir-Fry


Roasted Vegetarian Sausage with Grapes

Happy Father’s Day!!!  And please, share with us what you cooked for your Father’s Day breakfast, lunch, dinner or cookout!!!

    Your dish selection looks good Madelyn. I couldn’t agree more with your Dad and what a better way to celebrate than to enjoy a good meal at the shared table together. Hope Father’s Day was a special day in your family!
