Grilled Halloumi Cheese Skewers

Grilled Halloumi Cheese Skewers

Everyone has heard of grilled cheese, the sandwich, and what a beloved meatless dish it is. But for your Meatless Monday menu this Memorial Day, I'd like to recommend a recipe featuring a completely different type of grilled cheese. This recipe starts with halloumi, a cheese from the Mediterranean that has a high melting point. That makes it so the cheese can be fried or grilled, and cooking the cheese with one of those methods turns it golden brown and memorably delicious. I fell in love with halloumi cheese the first time I tasted it years ago, and these Grilled Halloumi Cheese Skewers with Mushrooms and Onion from Kalyn's Kitchen were one of the most-likely-to-be-repeated things I've ever cooked on my grill. I think this would make a perfect Meatless Monday dish, or this could be a lovely side dish for grilled foods any time you're cooking outside.

Slow Cooker Spicy Brown Rice and Black Bean Cheesy Bowl

When it's too hot to turn on the stove, either grilling or using the slow cooker are my preferred ways to cook and keep the kitchen cool. On a hot day earlier this summer I made this Slow Cooker Spicy Brown Rice and Black Bean Cheesy Bowl, where the rice is cooked in the slow cooker with onions, canned black beans, diced green chiles and seasonings. I had the wild idea of cutting up some string cheese and stirring in the last half hour of cooking, for bites of melted cheese throughout the dish, but skip the cheese if you want a dish that's vegan.   Read more >

Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers

When I was a kid my mom made stuffed peppers with rice, hamburger, onion, and green bell peppers, and I'd eat the rice and hamburger with a generous dollop of ketchup but wouldn't touch the pepper. Now I'm a huge fan of stuffed peppers of every kind, and I came up with this recipe for Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers with Brown Rice, Mushrooms and Feta after a Kalyn's Kitchen reader requested vegetarian stuffed peppers last October.   Read more >

Slow Cooker Rosemary and Thyme Potato Soup

After I featured Brussels sprouts for my last two Meatless Monday posts, I promised something different this week, and I think this Slow Cooker Rosemary and Thyme Potato Soup from Barefeet in the Kitchen sounds like meatless comfort food at its best! Not only that, it can cook all day long in the slow cooker, just in case you might have a few things to do on the Monday before Christmas.   Read more >
