"You can use this recipe as is or for totally distinctive products. This recipe is not to be slavishly followed but is to serve as a starting point for your own ideas. The name comes from the fact that I used it on 4 consecutive days while living in France." James Beard Makes: 8 cups * Directions * Put all the vegetables and the rosemary in a deep pan. Cover with water and add salt and pepper to taste -- about 1 tblspn salt and 1 tspn pepper. Bring to a boil gradually over low heat. Cover pot and simmer the soup gently for 1-1/2 to 2 hours, or until all the flavors are well blended. Taste and correct the seasoning. Serve with crackers, cheese, or whatever you'd like. * Examples of variations * First day: Enough soup for four people. Serve as described above. Second day: Add to the remainder another couple of peeled and chopped tomatoes, a few leaves of finely chopped spinach, another zucchini, and a few leftover cooked chickpeas. Add a bit of grated lemon rind and a touch of onion about 10 minutes before serving. Third day: For lunch, the soup is good cold with a dollop of creme frai'che. Fourth day: Add 2 or 3 peeled and diced beets, another cup of finely chopped, cooked cabbage, 3 or 4 more mushrooms, and if any, a little left over vegetable broth cooked from another day. NOTE: Of course, if you have some chicken or vegetable broth you can add it to the soup. The secret is to have variations of color, texture and flavor.

Add garlic, onion, pepper, carrot & celery. Season with 1 tablespoon tamari. When vegetables are tender, remove from the heat & place in a large bowl. Add mashed tofu. Cut bread into crouton sized pieces & quick fry in oil with tamari, garlic powder & five tablespoons of nutritional yeast. Add to tofu mixture. Season with remaining ingredients. Combine well & place the batter into a well greased casserole. Bake at 350F for 35 minutes. Alow to cool for 5 minutes or so, slide a butter knife around the edges, turn upside down on a plate. Serve warm with a simple green salad. It is also terrific in sandwiches cold. It keeps pretty well in the fridge for several days. Serves 4 to 6. * When using this amount of nutritional yeast, be sure to use a good quality product. I speak here from experience. Something like angevita is disgusting when used in large quantities.

    -Begin Recipe Export- QBook version 1.00.14 Title: Vegetarian Moussaka Keywords: Entrees, Vegetables Yield: 12 servings -----------TOMATO SAUCE--------------------- 2 lg Onions 2 T Olive oil 2 T Butter 2 c Mushrooms, minced -(if you insist upon -using meat, substitute -1 lb ground beef or -lamb for the mushrooms) 3 T Tomato paste 3 Tomatoes, peeled -and pureed 3/4 c Red wine, dry 1/2 c Parsley, chopped 1 t Cinnamon 1 T Garlic, finely chopped 1 T Oregano 1 t Sugar -----------BECHAMEL SAUCE------------------- 4 c Milk 1/2 c Butter 6 T Flour 1/8 t Nutmeg 1/4 t White pepper -----------THE CASSEROLE-------------------- Olive oil 3 lb Eggplant 4 Eggs, beaten 2 c Ricotta cheese 1 c Bread crumbs, dry 2 c Kefalotyri or Parmesan -cheese, grated First make the tomato sauce: peel and mince onions. Saute onions in about 2 T oil and about 2 T butter, over moderate heat, until they are soft and lightly colored (about 8 minutes). Add mushrooms and saute. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, wine, parsley, seasonings and sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered, for 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Most of the liquid should be evaporated, and the mixture quite thick. Remove skillet from heat and let it cool completely. Start seasoning the eggplants: peel eggplants and slice vertically, about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle lightly with salt and let sit for 30 minutes. Now make the Bechamel Sauce: Place the milk in a saucepan and heat it just until tiny bubbles appear along the edges. Remove and set aside. Melt one cube butter in a 3-quart saucepan over very low heat until foamy, being careful not to brown. Slowly add the 6 T flour, stirring constantly until smooth (3-4 minutes), and still being careful not to let it brown. Add the milk slowly, whipping with a wire whisk. When the mixture is thick and smooth, remove it from the heat and stir in seasonings. Cool sauce slightly. Back to the eggplant: Rinse well with cold water; squeeze gently and pat dry. Dredge the eggplant in about 1 1/2 cups flour and saute in olive oil. Put it all together: Stir ricotta cheese until it is smooth and creamy. Gently fold it into the Bechamel sauce. Stir in beaten eggs until thoroughly incorporated. Remove and discard any excess oil that has risen to the top of the tomato mixture. Lightly grease a 16x10 baking pan and sprinkle the bottom with a few bread crumbs. Place a layer of eggplant in the pan, following with a layer of tomato mixture. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and grated cheese. Repeat as many times as you have eggplant to last. Pour the Bechamel-ricotta sauce over the top and bake at 300 degrees F. for one hour, or until a golden-brown crust has formed on top. Remove moussaka from oven and let it stand undisturbed 20-30 minutes; the delay allows the layers to fuse. NOTES: * Vegetarian version of the Greek classic -- This recipe is not for the faint-hearted. It's very good and it takes a lot of work. Don't waste it on someone who would be just as satisfied with steak and salad! Difficulty: moderate. Time: 1 1/2 hours to prepare, 1 hour to bake, 20-30 minutes to set and cool. Some can be done ahead of time. Precision: Approximate measurement OK for eggplant, tomato mixture. Copyright (C) 1986 USENET Community Trust -End Recipe Export- Log: Cpt. S.Lefkowitz (S.S.

    -Begin Recipe Export- QBook version 1.00.14 Title: Baked Onions With Vegetarian Haggis Keywords: Vegetarian, Scottish, Haggis, Alcohol BAKED ONIONS WITH VEGETARIAN HAGGIS =================================== [Serves 6] This recipe comes from the BBC vegetarian good food magazine two years ago. This makes a pretty impressive dish. We had lots left over from this year's Burns' night (25th of January) and made it into a plait using puff pastry. I think the dish can do with a little spicing up, either with mustard or chiles. INGREDIENTS: 6 medium unpeeled onions, trimmed 50 g sunflower margarine 50 g organic rolled oats 50 g pinhead oatmeal 50 g chopped mixed nuts 1 onion, finely chopped 100 g mushrooms, finely chopped 1 carrot, finely chopped 200 g can red kidney beans, drained and chopped 50 g vegetable suet 1 teaspoon yeast extract 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 2 tbsp chopped mixed fresh herbs X pinch of grated nutmeg 1 lime (juice of) 1 tbsp whisky X seasoning X chopped fresh chives and parsley, to garnish DIRECTIONS: Cut a slither from the bottom of each of the onions, so that they stand upright. Cut a cross in the top about three quarters of the way down. Place in a large pan, cover with cold water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes, drain and refresh under cold water. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/gas 5. To make the haggis, melt the margarine in a pan and add the oats, oatmeal and nuts. Cook over a gentle heat, stirring, for about 3 minutes until toasted and golden. Transfer to a bowl. Melt remaining margarine, add the onion, mushrooms and carrot and cook gently for 5 minutes until softened. Stir into the toasted oat mixture with the remaining haggis ingredients. Season. Snip out the centre of the onions with kitchen scissors, leaving the skin and 3-4 outer layers intact. Stuff with haggis and bake for 40 minutes. Drink plenty of whisky with this:) From: vandamk@prl.philips.co.uk (Karin van Dam) -End Recipe Export- Log: Cpt. S.Lefkowitz (S.S. Mein Kind)
