Zuccheroni – Vegan Pepperoni

Zuccheroni – Vegan Pepperoni

This started as a wild experiment for a family member who was trying to become a vegetarian. Made from thinly sliced zucchini “cured” in olive oil and spices, it can be served cold as antipasto, or baked onto a pizza.

Layered Pistachio Baklava

Layered Pistachio Baklava

Baklava was always the treat I bought or was gifted. I never attempted making it at home because it seemed like it would be an overly tedious task. Once you get into the rhythm of things though, the act of layering each sheet of phyllo and chopped nuts, becomes quite cathartic.

Spiced Carrots, Chickpeas, and Herbs

Spiced Carrots, Chickpeas, and Herbs

These golden brown carrots and chickpeas, paired with the punchy and tangy dressing, is something you’ll want to serve at every meal! Eat as an appetizer, side dish, or even main course.

Vegetarian Barbe-Fu

Vegetarian Barbe-Fu

This was a new one for me, trying to create something delicious for a team member’s going away party at work. Most of my meals/dishes are very meat forward, but she’s vegan so we tried to make her a meal she’d remember. This tofu recipe blends the flavors, techniques, and style of a normal barbecue, but replaces the meat with extra firm tofu.

Roasted Mushroom Pho

Roasted Mushroom Pho

This is a hearty broth made with slow roasted mushrooms and has very deep and developed flavors. I had some mushrooms to use and wanted to try something different with them. This is a recipe for someone who wants to spend the day making the house smell amazing!

Cran+Berry Tart

Cran+Berry Tart

Fresh, healthy, and oh-so-eye appealing, this Cran + Berry Tart is a delightful twist on a fine French pastry dessert that delivers a blast of sweet-yet-tart berry goodness in every flavor-explosive bite!

A lot of my friends are vegetarian and I love to help them out with dishes for their families.
