Egg Foo Young with brown gravy

This is a great way to use leftovers. I am using pork from a roast I made the other night but you can shred up chicken or chop shrimp to make this delicious recipe. You can omit the gravy but that is how I like to enjoy my egg foo young! This recipe reminds me of a Chinese restaurant I always went to with my grandmother and mother. Later I took my daughter! They had the best egg foo young with lots of brown gravy.

Eggplant Caponata

Eggplant Caponata is an Italian favorite.  You can enjoy as a side to any dish but I love to grill a piece of white fish and set on top and eat together!  You can also serve over spaghetti squash or your favorite pasta!  This Italian Paleo Recipe is perfect.

Caponata Is an Italian (Sicilian recipe) dish consisting of eggplant, celery then seasoned with vinegar and capers.

Numerous local variations of the ingredients exist with some versions adding olives, carrots and green bell peppers, zucchini or summer squash.

Caponata is typically used as a side dish for fish dishes and sometimes as an appetizer, but since the 1700s it has also been prepared as a main course.

Spinach and Eggplant Manicotti with Tofu "Ricotta"

Lately I have been wanting to try to make different recipes, that would be enjoyed by a vegan or someone who wants to try something a little different. As an Italian I love using ricotta cheese, I wanted to find an alternate ingredient to use that could favor someone who is vegan or even dairy free.

I took a typical Italian dish and replaced the ricotta cheese with tofu. I served this during dinner one night and I didn't tell my family it was a tofu manicotti. No one knew! Give my Spinach and Eggplant Manicotti with Tofu "Ricotta" a try!Enjoy!
