The current issue of VegNews has lots of awesome recipes, reviews and more. The dish that jumped from the pages for me was Terry Hope Romero’s Pesto Piadina. My sister Sarah came over for dinner the other night and I convinced her to help me cook while the hubby and my brother-in-law jammed in our studio. Sarah’s a Chef, so I’m always trying to learn from her in the kitchen. That night I learned when doubling a recipe, don’t double the salt! Obvious perhaps, but it was a lesson I needed to learn. After fixing our over-salted pesto Sarah helped me roll out the dough and assemble the piadinas. They turned out so delicious! The dough was easy and cooked well, and I loved the walnut pesto.
Our cooking escapade left our kitchen a huge mess, but our meal was worth it. It had been a while since I rolled out dough and it reminded me of making tortillas with my mom as a child. My next VegNews recipe inspiration is the Vegan Philadelphia-Style Cream Cheese beautiful photographed by Vanessa K. Rees whose vegan food photography blog is my new favorite.
Today is off to a great start. The hubby and I went for a jog around the neighborhood this morning and we have a video project to keep us busy this afternoon. Happy Monday everyone!
