What’s “The Platter”?
The Blooming Platter offers a growing collection of recipes for creative appetizers, beverages, snacks, soups, salads, sides and entrees with a tendency toward ethnic fusion dishes, lightened-up comfort foods and updated classics with a twist. A baker since childhood, I also include a burgeoning selection of dessert recipes that will tempt even the staunchest dairy-lover. Here's to compassionate plant-based cooking and eating!
About Betsy DiJulio
When Betsy—an award-winning art teacher and practicing artist—is not teaching, making art, reading, writing, or walking her new dogs, Patsy and Urban, she can often be found in downward dog on her yoga mat.
And after that? A little food, a little more wine, and a lot of communing with friends, family, and students (well, no wine for her students).
In addition to authoring The Blooming Platter Cookbook, Betsy is a regular contributor, columnist, or featured writer for:
- Coastal Virginia Magazine
- The Virginian-Pilot
Look for the occasional link here on her website.
Besides art and cooking, Betsy admits to being a little obsessed with:
-Anything eco- or animal-friendly
-Artisanal and small business ventures
-Design in its many forms, especially interiors and landscapes
Did someone say mid-century modern?

I wrote a book that was published on Amazon about veganism in general (including the health benefits), using the abolitionist approach. I would like to know two things. One, is it possible for you to help me promote the book in order to spread the word as much as possible, and two, do you offer grants to writers?
Here is a link to the book itself. If you do not want to support me directly, could you send this to as many people as you can (and want to) in order to give a small hand with marketing? I’d really appreciate it!
What would help me the most right now would be receiving five-star ratings for my book! If you wish to post the link somewhere on your site (or on your FB page), that would help enormously as well. My book contains only 64 pages, which could very well be what some people are looking for in order to get the info they need to become vegan. Please note that it is available in Kindle Unlimited.
Thank you in advance for your attention in this matter.

Hi there. First, I wish you the best of luck. Second, could you define abolitionist approach? Third, I can’t endorse anything that I haven’t seen. I don’t own a Kindle, so are there promo copies available? Unfortunately, I do not offer grants to writers. I am a freelance writer myself. 🙂 (And an artist + full-time art/art history teacher.)

On the Vegan Chess Pie Recipe:
What kind of gluten free flour can I substitute for the (1/2 cup flour) ?
Thanks Meredith Davis

Gosh, Meredith, I wish I could direct you with certainty. I am so sorry, but I am not a gluten free recipe developer and it was super tricky to obtain exactly the right texture. The first try was an epic fail and I would hate for you to experience the same. I have created a recipe for GF chocolate chip cookies that used chickpea flour. Maybe try that? Another that really absorbs a lot of moisture is Coconut Flour. Please let me know if either works and good luck!
