The Chef: Elizabeth
The Menu: Some very highly delicious Chorizo-Spinach Sopes, recipe courtesy of VN columnist Terry Hope Romero's latest book, Viva Vegan! While the recipe itself calls for handmade, fat tortillas, we were a little crunched for time and so substituted blue corn ones. The sizzling SoyRizo and spinach combination were completely wonderful, and the added bonus of shredded cabbage and fresh guacamole made us feel highly celebratory. Also there was salad. Woot, salad.
The Goods: Since this isn't the type of blog where we keep all the goodies to ourselves, we'll be giving away one copy of Viva Vegan! Does anything say "Happy Cinco de Mayo" better than 200 recipes for Latin-food lovers? Nope, didn't think so. To enter to win this stellar cookbook, tell us in the comments: What is your favorite variety of Latin food? We'll pick a winner before tomorrow's post!
