Marvelous Mexican

The Chef: Katie

The Menu: First off, it says "marvelous" in today's title for a reason. This meal was utterly excellent, another hit from Ms. I-Can't-Cook Katie. So, starting from the top we've got some lovely, warmed sprouted wheat tortillas, then superb roasted sweet potatoes, a fresh, simple tomato and avocado salad, and the main attraction: beautiful black beans with red bell pepper on a bed of just-right rice. That little dollop on top of the beans? Oh, that's what started out as vegan mayonnaise and got dressed up with light vinegar and lime juice to make a tangy topping.

The Goods: If there's any other good news after a meal like this, we're not sure we even want to hear it. An entirely satisfying midday meal, we could all easily curl up and take a nice long catnap in the sun while Katie's delicious food digests.
