Easter din-din

Soooo...what did everyone make for the Easter feast?

I made a WICKED salad that is now my new favorite: kale, cilantro, parsley, sprouts, tomato, and mushrooms, with a dressing of miso, garlic, ginger, dates, lemon juice, and cayenne and topped with edible flowers. Sounds complex, but was actually very simple and grounding, and SO delicious. For dessert, I served Ani Phyo's carrot cake (but formed into cupcakes so I could freeze whatever didn't get eaten in individual portions) along with fresh pineapple. I was so pleased, because I managed to impress my SAD-eating relatives with my raw feast; they raved about the salad in particular! Not an easy feat, as I'm sure you all know winking smiley.

Anyway, I'd say it was my most successful and satisfying holiday meal to date: my relatives enjoyed the food, both taste- and appearance-wise; and no one poked fun at my lifestyle - in fact, they were all quite curious! - and I didn't end up feeling deprived food-wise nor socially.

I hope your Easter went as well as mine!

I made Ani Phyo's Save-the-Salmon patties with hollandaise sauce and a chocolate banana pie from The Raw Food Gourmet for desert. Both went over well with the mixed SAD/veg*an crowd. I encouraged everyone to take a bed of greens for under their patties, and no one commented about the fact that my bed of greens was most of my meal. Good dinner!

I have Ani Phyo's book, I like it. I don't make stuff from it too often because of all the nuts, but there are nice recipes.
