Easter Dinner With A Neighbor

It has been an awfully long hiatus from our last post and we do apologize for that. As you are all quite aware Easter was last month. Unfortunately not everyone lives close to family to invite over for dinner on a Holiday. My neighbor Alice one door down from me in my apartment complex came over to enjoy a four course, Easter Sunday meal. Two days before I was scrambling to find the perfect ingredients at several stores. I shopped at Whole Foods, Ralph’s and Bristol Farms. We made Southern Style Cabbage, which consists of cabbage, tempeh bacon strips, earth balance non dairy spread and sweetened with agave. Other items on the menu included black eyed peas, rice topped with mildly spice fermented cabbage known as Kimchi, cornbread and baked sweet potatoe. The main course: faux Italian sausage, with leeks and spinach in marinara sauce. For dessert we all shared a slice of carrot cake courtesy of Bristol Farms. Alice described the meal as a ‘Symphony of flavors’. We were glad the outcome was a success since this was the second time she has tried our food. We owed it to her since she bought us dinner a couple of months ago to one of our favorite vegan/ kosher restaurants called Bodhi where we had spicy eggplant over rice, pumpkin curry and Thai sticky rice and mango for dessert . We look forward to inviting Alice over again to enjoy the blend of flavors we love experimenting with in the kitchen.Image

After transitioning to a meatless diet two years ago, Lauren and I had no choice but to learn lots of great vegetarian recipes---and fast---after all, we always loved great food. The reason for our decision to omit meat and most dairy products from our lives was quite simple. A vegetarian diet is healthier, kinder, and ironically much cheaper than one with meat. We created this website to show that being a vegetarian is one of the easiest and most rewarding lifestyles to partake in, and hope that both vegetarians and aspiring vegetarians alike will visit Go-Vegetarianista habitually. :) About the authors: Nadya Rousseau is an actor/writer/producer residing in Beverly Hills, CA. She moved to Los Angeles almost five years ago at the age of nineteen to pursue her career and to escape the boredom of her small town. As maintaining a svelte figure is often pivotal in the entertainment industry, she finds she has no trouble staying slim and healthy as a vegetarian. In addition to loving good food and helping others, she enjoys engaging in sarcastic banter--keep an eye out for her frequent sardonic jokes--you'll surely be amused!! Lauren Rheims, is a native of Pomona, CA, and now resides in Beverly Hills, CA. She is a fashion and nature photographer, and of course loves shooting pictures of super yummy food! Lauren at first was apprehensive about becoming vegetarian, being of Creole descent, enjoying delicious seafood and meat, was more or less second nature. However after she discovered just how easy it was to enjoy the same delectable meals sans meat, she was thrilled! Lauren is excited to show everyone the simplicity and allure of vegetarian fare--and just how fun it can be!

  1. On Easter Sunday, I had an opportunity to experience a vegetarian dinner,
    And it was like a dinner I never had before. I am neither vegetarian nor vegan, but I loved the food I ate. I savored a sweet potato, steamed cabbage, and some wonderful brown rice. Everything tasted perfect.

    At first, I was a bit curious about what I was eating, but realized at the end it had a good taste, was yummy, and now I may just be hooked on Vegetarian
    and will continue to enjoy it more and more.
