Veggie Spaghetti Squash Salad (Serves 6)
Veggie Spaghetti Squash Salad
1 spaghetti squash
½ cup pearl barley
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch julienne
5 green onions, sliced on the diagonal
1 cup snow peas, sliced on the diagonal into bite sized pieces
1 tsp cumin
2 cups corn, fresh or frozen
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp finely chopped sun dried tomatoes
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 red chili pepper, seeded and minced
¼ tsp black pepper
1 head romaine lettuce
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
½ tsp coriander
black mustard seeds, for garnish
chopped cilantro, for garnish
cherry tomatoes, for garnish

Cut the spaghetti squash in half and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Steam the squash in a covered pot until it is just tender when pierced with a fork, about 25 minutes. There should still be a little bit of resistance when you test the squash. It is important not to overcook it. Chill the squash, then tease the strands apart with a fork. Rinse the barley and simmer it in 2 cups of water until it is tender, about 25 minutes. Rinse with cold water and drain completely. Place it in a large bowl with the bell pepper, green onions, snow peas, corn, and chili peppers. Toss to mix. Combine the vinegar, olive oil, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, cumin, coriander, and black pepper in a small bowl. To assemble the salad, shred enough of the romaine lettuce to cover each plate generously. Top with about 3/4 cup of the spaghetti squash, and about 1 cup of the vegetable mixture. Pour the dressing over the salad and garnish with chopped cilantro, black mustard seeds, and 1 or 2 cherry tomatoes.
Pita Pocket Vegetable Melt (Serves 4)
½ cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 cup chopped tomato
½ cup sliced mushrooms
½ cup cubed Munster cheese
2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
4 small pita pockets

Put the onion, garlic and mushrooms in a microwaveable bowl and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes until the onions are softened and the mushrooms tender. Toss the mushrooms mixture with the Munster cheese and tomato, and sprinkle with the parmesan. Open the pita pockets and spoon an equal amount of filling into the pocket of each one. Lay each sandwich on several layers of paper towel. Lay on additional paper towel over each and fold the corners under to make a package. Microwave the sandwiches on high for 1-2 minutes to warm them and allow the cheese to melt slightly and serve warm.

Slowly stir in vegetable stock and honey, and simmer until mixture begins to thicken. Add cooked beans, cooked rice, and wine, and heat through until beans are soft. Serve in individual bowls garnished with sprigs of fresh sage. Lightly browned sage, red wine, and a hint of honey bring out the delicate flavor of white beans in this creamy, memorable soup.
