Mardi Gras Munchies!

The Chef: Elizabeth

The Menu: A Mardi-Gras-inspired medley! Elizabeth busted out a not-entirely-authentic jambalaya with kidney beans, rice, tomatoes, cheddar cauliflower, and spices. A bright salad with both purple and green lettuces—the somewhat traditional color scheme for the day—cherry tomatoes, avocado, and raisins. For the most thematically appropriate dish, she hid one raisin in a pile of King (pan)cakes!

The Goods: OK, so a raisin is not technically the same as a baby Jesus, and pancakes are not the same as King cake, but just because you don't have the traditional ingredients on hand it's no excuse to miss out on celebrating a big, fat Tuesday. If you're looking for a tasty New Orleans treat today, don't miss our Must-Make Muffaleta!

I know this is an old post, but I just found your blog and I love it! I just wanted to mention that there is a vegan bakery in Baton Rouge that ships king cakes. I haven't tried anything there yet, but plan on doing so very soon. Here's the link - http://trulyfreebakery.com/
