Starting with these Cabbage Shell Tostadas!!! Michael and I went to a cooking class at our favorite restaurant in Silverlake called Cru. This place ROCKS. If you're in the LA area, I HIGHLY recommend a trip there. If you're not, I still HIGHLY recommend a trip there. Here's what they have to say:
Inspired vegan and raw cuisine in the heart of silverlake, renowned for it’s creative use of the freshest organic produce and entirely gluten-free menu.
Chef Rachel Carr crafts exquisite vegan offerings from a huge variety of seasonal fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, and whole grains. Artfully weaving Italian, Japanese, Tunisian, Thai and Indian flavors into a fresh interpretation of life enhancing gourmet food, including desserts that even the most health conscious individual can indulge in guiltlessly.
We went to the class yesterday morning, and made this recipe last night - we shoulda doubled it. It's the perfect mix of savory and slightly sweet and will blow your mind away with how much it tastes like tacos! It's 100% raw (no cooking = super easy and fast!) and fits right in with the 21-day cleanse...did ya start yet??

New Years resolution #1: Venture outside of your comfort zone. A couple facts about me: I'm not a fan of soup and I've never really cared about cauliflower. Therefore, I generally stay away from both. So what better opportunity to put my new year's resolution into action than to try Robin Robertson's Cauliflower Soup recipe in this months issue of VegNews. I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised! This soup is so flavorful, hearty and creamy, it feels like you're coating your insides with spoonfuls of velvet. It sounds fancy and will take about an hour to make, but the steps are cake and most of that time is spent waiting around while the oven and pots do the work for you. You could even double it and freeze the rest for a bonus meal a couple weeks down the road.
