Vegan Latina Tester Recipes Tease!

So I am a recipe tester for Terry Hope Romero’s  upcoming Vegan Latina cookbook. This is my first time being a tester and I feel very fortunate to try out new recipes and especially because they are Latin recipes. I am Cuban and am accustomed to eating lots of Latin food so veganized old favorites is just well, fantastic. So far everything I have tried has been great – I can’t wait for the book to come out! Here are some teaser photos, enjoy!

Arroz con Gandules is a traditional Puerto Rican dish and this veganized version rivals any I’ve ever had.

Very addictive condiment that has a beautiful color.
Pine Nut Crema

I can’t stop eating this stuff – its like a Latin hummous when served cold and sets up up like cheese when baked!

Hopefully the pics speak for themselves! Stay tuned for more yummy Latin food!
