Zucchini Stuffed with Pilaf

Zucchini Stuffed with Pilaf

Ordinary, even left over pilaf can become a beautiful dish. In my version, I decided to improve upon it in a couple of ways. For starters, I paired it with colorful, saucy zucchini. Then, for its presentation, I gave it a tight, petite circular form. This dish can either be served as a side dish or main entrée. Easy to make, but impressive for both the eyes and the palette.

Edamame Gnocchi Salad

This invention will impress you, especially if you are a vegan or vegetarian. It is a salad with everyone's favorite fun-to-eat Italian food, gnocchi. The surprise is that the pasta pieces are made from flour, potatoes and edamame beans. It has a vibrant color, smooth texture and flavor, and goes great with a soy sauce/Italian dressing.

Here is the perfect snack to munch on while you are enjoying a beer (or two). These popcorn mushrooms are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, and taste great with horseradish sauce. Easy to make and even easier to eat.

Brown Rice Chili

Brown Rice Chili

Is there any food more comforting than a warm, steaming bowl of chili? Vegans unfortunately have had their chili bowls only half full, so to speak, because of the decision not to include meat. This chili recipe fills the bowl by substituting brown rice for ground beef. It is a healthy, hardy (and comforting) replacement.

Vegetable Pie

Vegetable Pie

This vegetable pie looks so enticing with the colors of different vegetables. This is great vegetable dish, but with heartiness than even a meat-lover will appreciate. It has a delicate, flaky crust and a tempting vegetable medley, with mashed potatoes as a base. With a garlic butter topping, this dish has a wonderful aroma and taste.

Tri-Colored Mashed Potatoes

Tri-Colored Mashed Potatoes

This dish may look like a layered cake dessert, but it is actually made from savory, smooth mashed potatoes. Its pretty three colored layers make serving it three times the fun. Tri-Colored Mashed Potatoes are great as a side dish, but could also be a main dish in its own right. Make sans cheese, and it becomes a delicious vegan food.

Edamame Falafel

Edamame Falafel

Falafel are a very popular middle-eastern food. They are delicious and easy to eat, and perhaps that's why they are also a popular vendor food in New York City - there's always a line for them during lunch hour. I created a version of this popular food, falafel with edamame. It is green in color and it is very appetizing - great for party food or even as a sandwich for lunch. It's a great dish for Vegans, too.

Avocado is popular ingredient for many foods, such as guacamole. I created a very creamy dish using avocado along with tofu. It is a smooth mousse with the Japanese flavor of soy sauce gelée (jelly). This is a great combination of western flavors and Asian flavors.

Potato Bonfire

Potato Bonfire

This dish's unique name comes from my wanting to both play with and decorate baked French fries as a bonfire. It looks like a bonfire, and is hot like one too! The French fries are baked with rosemary and seasoning and then eaten with a fiery spicy sauce. Feel and enjoy the heat from both the decoration and taste!
