Sandwich to Salad - A wonderful dinning treat.

Tami, the lovely and talented person behind the American Vegan Kitchen cookbook (An outstanding book!)  and the Vegan Appetite blog, has a new book out, all about sandwiches. To celebrate, she shared a recipe for one that did not make it into the book, Vegan Appetite: Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day! Jibarito, the Bonus Recipe!

Two challenges were awaiting me. My eyesight and the fact that Plantains were MIA from the local markets.
So, this turned into a salad minus the onions.
The verdict - delicious!
We had leftover marinated mushrooms that are going onto a Pizza. Win win.

Salad for Days!

I love salads. Really. Once I get into the swing of things, there is no stopping me. For lunch, dinner or as a treat with TV, there are SO many options, that it's rare that the same one appears twice. (There are exceptions of course. Aren't there always?)
These last few weeks have been devoted to recipes from Appetite For Reduction. Fantastic.
Then, with an email ding, I got word that Bryanna had just posted a, wait for it, Salad.
And what a winner it is. Beets, Carrots, Onions - all roasted then tossed with a dressing, heaped onto a bed of lettuce and crowned with some Vegan Feta.
Being that we had some Cauliflower to use up and just a few Carrots, that change was made, as well as using a store bought Vegan Feta Cheese.
Sometimes, it just does not get much better than this.

No, your eyes are just fine. I used golden beets.
