Vegan Asian Inspired Rolls with Lemongrass Ginger Broth

I am still working on some vegan meals and this one was inspired by a dish I had on the weekend at one of our new favourite restaurants, EVOO, on Notre Dame Street in Montreal.  The menu choices were original and outstanding in flavour and presentation.  Three young friends (Peter, Sophie and Claudie) have come together to start up this restuarant and the attention to detail that has gone into the menu as well as the service and ambiance is incredible.  I had the rabbit stuffed cabbage rolls that were served in a lemongrass broth and it was delicious.

Vegan Samosas

I have been working on a few  recipes for some of my vegan family and friends. The goal is to create something that respects veganism but pleases everyone.  These samosas were an easy choice as a starter or appetizer and they have lots of flavour.  Although the dough is traditionally made with ghee (clarified butter), it was easily replaced with oil and turned out really well.

Three Mushroom Tartine

We spent last weekend in Kingston, Ontario.  The purpose of the trip was threefold - to bring Kat home from university (2nd year done!) - to participate in the KRRA run benefiting the Kingston General Hospital trauma centre and to celebrate my dad's 81st birthday.   

It turned out to be one of those perfect weekends where everything seemed to flow.  The weather was beautiful, we got to spend some great family time together and we ate wonderful meals!
