Life might be complicated.
Another school friend, Madelyn, has a blog on vegetarian recipes. She turned vegetarian a while back for many reasons, that if memory doesn’t fail me, were rooted in health issues. In any case, I applaud her discipline to be vegetarian and her efforts to think out of the box and create her own “criollo” versions of some of our foods.
Of course making a batido de Mamey is somewhat easy so long as you are not vegan (since the batido does take milk). And if you’ve been wondering how to be a vegetarian and have a sandwich cubano, well, she’s got your answer.
So if you happen to be vegetarian (Lord know that is a complete impossibility for me) or like to cook vegetarian every once in a while, I urge you to visit her blog Karma Free Cooking. While she is not vegan, if you are vegan, I think you can find some recipes there as well. She has also been added to the blogroll.
