This was probably the best lunch I’ve made in some time. We combined it with a big bowl of my favorite Sweet potato and pepper soup and it was awesome.
I’m not very creative when it comes to special lunch recipes—too attached to my basic cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and cucumber sandwich, I guess—but this was something else alright. Think of it as a pizza variation, only way more fulfilling and a wee bit healthier. At least I like to think it is. Don’t burst my bubble, okay. Denial has never tasted so good!
So, what is it? It’s a slightly toasted, warm, chewy Moroccan flatbread filled with a variety of flavored roasted vegetables, combined with a hint of cream cheese, salty salami and melted Gouda. Just eat it and weep, it’s so good it’ll bring tears to you eyes.
Oh, you’ll be needing milk with this. Lots and lots of cold milk.
1 Moroccan flatbread
5 oz low-fat cream cheese
4 oz deli salami (or chorizo)
1 bell pepper
2 red onions
1 large garlic clove
1 tsp dried basil
1/3 red chili pepper
3 tbsp oil
coarse sea salt
grated melting cheese
I desperately needed some color on my plate. The third round of cold winter weather set in and this is all I’ve been seeing for weeks now and quite frankly, I’m getting tired of it. We’ve had the white Christmas thing, we’ve had the sleighing thing, I love snow, but I’m sick of it now. I want spring. My poor lilac tree is suffering.
*Heat your oven as high as it goes! Let’s use all the horsepower you got in that baby!
Pour the oil over the vegetables and mix it all up. Sprinkle some coarse sea salt on top and pop the tray in the hot oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until the vegetables are slightly browned and soft, but still have a good bite.

It’s time for hearty, honest and slightly less fattening food! At least for my thighs it is. Here’s a family favorite for your winter hodgepodge collection. You can never have enough of them! It’s a traditional hodgepodge with a slight Kayotic twist. Slight being the understatement of the year. If you don’t like salami, skip this one. Big part of the flavor that makes this hodgepodge so special comes from salami….
