My latest recipe is live on the blog! This go round, it’s my ‘Happy Crab Cakes’. The crabs are happy because they’re not involved in the ingredients. Instead, I use artichoke hearts, fresh vegetables like onions, celery, and bell peppers, and load them with spices and herbs galore. Go check it out: direct link in bio and do let me know what you think and maybe even give it a go. On that note, I’m thrilled to announce that this recipe will be featured at the new vegan restaurant launching in NYC called @urbanvegankitchen. I’ve been working hard with my dear friend Pamela (@bigapplevegan) owner of Blossom and Blossom du Jour, on creating a refreshing and fun menu for her new spot. It’s been such a blast and I can’t wait to share more of the creations soon. ?
