    My new pal Diana Temple, a Malibu caterer, was Meryl Streep’s personal chef for five years.

    In that time, she cooked many a meal for the Streep/Gummer family and friends, including many notables.

    Shall we drop a few names, just for fun?

    Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick , foodie goddess Alice Waters, and Streep’s close friend comedian Tracey Ullman. A vegetarian, Ullman was the inspiration for this dish.

    It’s a perfect vegetarian main dish, or a wonderful side dish for a main meal. Temple makes it often when she caters weddings, especially when the wedding party requests vegetarian.

    The recipe is at Malibu Patch, where I write a weekly column called Malibu Taste.
