"VEGAN Delight !! Having so much fun with @nocrumbslefts_otherkid in the kitchen with me! He made me an amazing gazpacho yesterday, and today I am making him a plant-based raw concoction. Produce is at its peak, so it’s a lovely time to thinly slice some gorgeous vegetables for vegetable salads. So many choices! Finely sliced mushrooms, garlic, garlic scapes, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper made a lovely combo. Here’s another good one: thinly sliced summer squash, broccolini, olive oil, and Aleppo pepper, topped with a cashew cream, red pepper, and avocado dressing. There’s nothing I love more than a cooking challenge, and this raw deliciousness is health on a plate. I’m always looking for new inspiration, and would love to know your favorite summer vegetable side dish!"
