Greens Bloghop: Cream of Jute Leaves

Embarassing as it may sound, I have to admit, the highlight of my dishes has never been leafy greens. Like an omnivore meal, the greens play only a supporting role on the plate.

Crispy Vegan Binagoongan

Viva Las Vegan!

I’m joining the Vegan Mofo Iron Chef Challenge for the first time and I’m quite excited to be part of the brilliant line up of vegan recipes it generates every month.
