Growing up I always loved going to the mall for two reasons: obviously shopping, but also the food court! My favorite were the Asian-fusion spots where you got at styrofoam box filled to the brim with yummy food! I’m not going to lie, I sometimes get cravings but thankfully that has only ever inspired me to create my own veganized version.
If there are two things I think pretty much everyone can get on board with, they are avocado and pesto! Okay, maybe not everyone, but if you are that one percent, please just…go away LOL! Regardless of that statistic, avocado-pesto linguini is one of the yummiest and easiest recipes to make and yes, it can be made 100% vegan!
Something I had not experimented much with is veganizing fish-based meals. It hasn’t been an issue because I didn’t think I really enjoyed seafood that much anyway. One visit to a farmer’s market in South Florida and I realized I was wrong. The ceviche stands, shrimp skewers and fish and chip tents had me salivating and got me thinking. How can I make this vegan? This question is really more of a challenge and in my experience, it makes herbivores super excited! By the way, I did NOT give in to my craving at the farmer’s market; instead, I got an acai bowl (just in case you were wondering)!
