Sharing the vegan love...

Over the holidays I was able to get in touch with lots of family, one of who is N. my dear cousin on my father's side. She is very much interested in healthy eating and asked me questions about vegan cooking and eating. I gave her some recipes to try and gave her my blog info. As of a few days ago, she has completely surprised me by deciding not to eat meat and has become very excited about vegetarian cooking! I am super proud of her and I can't wait to share with her more recipes and the joys of being meat free. You know, when I tell people about my choice and how good it feels, a lot of them seem interested in trying it. And if just one person tries going meatless at least once a week that is amazing enough for me! But for my cousin to really go for it, I just can't tell you how happy and proud I am!

We've been emailing back and forth and this morning she emailed me some pictures of what she's been cooking up. These look absolutely fantastic!


First up: Thai Green Curry with Bamboo Shoots, Tofu and Yams. Heaven! She based this curry off of my recipe here.


Served over what we call in Thai "Kanom Jean" which translates as literally "Chinese Dessert", hehe. It's not a dessert but a very delicate and thin noodle.


What looks like a delicious bean salad. I have to ask her more about this. It's calling my name!


Me thinks these are Isa's chocolate chip cookies! I shared this recipe with my whole family at christmas. Yum yum...

Can't wait to see more of her cooking!

That curry looks awesome. Congrats to your cousin! My friend told me a few days ago that she and her husband are thinking about going vegetarian, and I am trying really hard not to push TOO hard, haha. Its great that your cousin has fully made that decision and is already making awesome food!

I really love getting curry when I go out, but I can't seem to find curry paste around here. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right places ::shrugs::

That's so great about your cousin! I've had so many people ask me about my diet and even ask for recipes, but most don't follow through. I'm sure your blog was a great inspiration to her.
