Book Review and Giveaway! Fillet of Soul: AfroVegan

Fillet of Soul: Afro Vegan is Wheeler del Torro's (of Vegan Scoop fame) newest book.  Note that I say book, and not cookbook.  Because this is more than a cookbook.  Yes, there are recipes, and I will get to those in a minute, but this book is more of a personal look into the experiences del Torro has had with food as he has traveled around the world.

Sesame Sriracha Cream Cheese Bacon Scallion Puffs

Because sometimes you just want something that tastes good and takes very little effort. I mean they are called "convenience foods" for a reason, right?

These tasty little bites taste great warm, cold, or at room temperature, which makes them the perfect food to make as an appetizer, bring to a party, or just make up a batch like me and my sister, June, did on my recent visit to Portland.  And since today is her birthday, I thought I would post this in her honor.

Recipes from the NYC Vegetarian Food Festival: Spicy Korean BBQ Jackfruit Tacos

My book tour for Fusion Food in the Vegan Kitchen ended with a bang in New York City at the fourth annual NYC Vegetarian Food Festival.  I met so many amazing people there.  I met so many people who already had many of my books, and I even met a couple who told me that I helped them go vegan. How inspiring! I am pretty sure there were close to 10,000 people in attendance over the 
weekend.  You can check out some amazing photos, by Drew B. Photography, of the entire event here.

Austin Inspired Breakfast Tacos

Austin Inspired Breakfast Tacos

I am finally home from my book tour! (AKA, my epic journey across America.)  I am planning on writing a complete recap here on the blog soon, but I thought I would sneak in and post this lil diddy until then.  This post serves a few purposes.  One, to prove that it is easy to throw together a great meal in just a few minutes with just about anything you have in the house. Two, to use up the over 200 tortillas I still have left over from the New York Vegetarian Food Festival. And, three, to expose the rest of you to a phenomenon I only just learned about on a recent visit to Austin, Texas, that is the breakfast taco.
