I received an email from a woman who was looking for a support group because her granddaughter had recently decided to become vegan.
While I gave her some ideas and recommended some reading materials, I failed to mention some other products that might help, like mock meat. So, I emailed her a bit of a guide on faux meat since it can help make the meal seem a bit more familiar to new vegetarians or vegans and their non-vegetarian friends.
I’ve received a few emails requesting specific types of recipes like dairy-free or gluten- free. This week’s recipe is a dairy-free version of mushroom bisque. Traditionally, a bisque is a thick cream soup made with meat or seafood. It can also be cream and pureed vegetables. So, this soup is not technically a bisque. However, I won’t tell if you won’t.
I’m calling this week’s recipe Moroccan-ish Quinoa Salad because I was inspired by the combination of spices used in a Moroccan recipe I saw for a cooked dish. It isn’t exactly a traditional Moroccan recipe but it sure was inspired by one. This is yet another gluten and dairy-free recipe. It also happens to be a very pretty salad because of the different colors of the veggies in it.
