You said you wanted to keep it strictly vegetarian, geebs, but see it posted under vegetables. That was the reason for my question. No you don't have to dump bacon on the dreaded LOL green bean casserole. It's an inexpensive idea, that everyone (but me) seems to go ga-ga over. I do like the broc/cauliflower/carrot casserole, & there is no meat included - but there are dairy products in the dish.

Grill or roast assorted vegetables, then dice them and toss them with either orzo or cous cous, and your chimichurri sauce.

Where else would you have me post it? I am looking for a vegetable dish so I posted under the vegetable forum. Am I missing something?

Oh I like that idea, but I think that amount of garlic with some of the people in this crowd might not go over too well. I will save that for my family though. I like the idea of using that sauce for something other than meat.

You could do the same thing using pesto. Just make the pesto a little loose so you can toss it, and cut back on the garlic. A sun dried tomato pesto would be really good also.

I have done that with pesto before and it works great.

How about zuchini and stewed tomatoes with a little pamesan or romano cheese. That's usually a crowd pleaser.

4 cups yellow moong dal
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 large tomato finely chopped
1 jalapeno finely chopped
2 tsp of cumin seeds
4 cloves of garlic finely minced
1 tbsp of curry powder
1/2 cup of fresh dill finely chopped
salt to taste
3 tbsp of oil (any kind)
3 cups of water

in a pan, add the oil and once it's hot add the cumin seeds, garlic and jalapeno. Saute it for a few seconds. Next add the onion and cook them until translucent. Add the curry powder and toast it for a few minutes. Next add the tomatoes and let it all cook until tomato is almost pulpy in texture. Now add the moong dal and water and salt to taste and let this all cook until the dal is cooked. This cooks fast so don't forget about it (keep an eye on it). Once the dal is cooked add the dill and stir it and serve with store bought roti's and basmati rice.

We like to accompany it with pickles (sweet and spicy) and papads (called papadums in the west)
