What’s The Platter
Welcome to The Blooming Platter:
a blog for those in search of a bounty of vegan recipes.
My 2009 New Year’s resolution was to start this blog as a way of “giving back” to all of the wonderful vegan bloggers and other cooks/chefs out there who have inspired me, taught me so much, and continue to be incredibly generous. I finally got my courage up to “plant the seeds,” so please join me frequently as my resolution takes root.
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.
In addition, sidebars provide a recipe index plus expanding lists of my favorite vegan blogs and other websites, cookbooks, facts, tips, restaurants and food-based memoirs and novels.
Here’s to compassionate plant-based cooking and eating!
