A 5 Star Dining Experience at Home
Last year's dinner was challenging as a newly vegan but this year, I'm cooking it and rocking it first class! Not bothering to make a boring salad or even a dessert! Get right into the heart of awesomeness :)
This was my first crack at crafting a fine dine VEGAN dinner. I went with a romantic French and Italian theme. Was it good? It was sublime. We enjoyed cooking it and most of all, eating it! Prepped the day before to save time on this lovely day to just relax and enjoy each other's company. Lounge the day away with some good espresso and a vegan cafe take out or take away. It's good to re.....lax at home, where the heart is <3
Potato Leek Soup: Creamy, smooth, light and very hearty.
Veggie Roulade: Grilled Eggplant, Zucchini, Red Peppers, Daiya Mozzarella Cheese and drizzled with a Balsamic Reduction Sauce.
Here's the lovely Italian and French dish, the "Tofu Ricotta Cheese Ravioli" stuffed with Spinach and Crimini Mushrooms, topped with Blanc Buerre Sauce and Homemade Pesto, well, it's ALL homemade, from scratch, with love ;)
As a chef, who has worked in many kitchens, I truly believe home cooking to be one of the best things one can do for their health and well-being. I cook at home... ALWAYS. I can't remember the last time we ate at a restaurant nor can I remember the last time we ordered take-out. Okay we did go to Portland last August but that doesn't count since we were on vacation. :D
Yes, I'm a vegan chef and that may give me an edge creatively but that is no excuse for anyone not to cook at home. For those that do not know where to begin or maybe you are in need of new ideas, we will be coming out with an e-book very soon, filled with delicious, simple and easy recipes. I'll also be sharing some delicious simple recipes here on TLC Vegan.com. Enjoy!
