grilled veggie sandwich w cilantro pesto

woke up a little early yesterday and went to union square greenmarket.
I picked rainbow carrots, fairy tale eggplant, candy onions, cilantro w roots, purple basil, yellow and green zucchini.

this morning, made sandwiches for brunch using some of them.
first, made my cilantro pesto:

 grilled my veggies:

grilled some mushrooms and the onions, too.
spread vegan mayo and put vegan cheese on halved country rolls, warmed them up in the oven, spread the pesto, loaded my veggies...

homemade is the best! ;p

pizzeria kitty

Pizza tastes better if we share it with friends and loved ones :)
It's perfect when feeling like staying home and relax on Sunday afternoon.
Especially tomatoes are so beautiful now...

Last Sunday I shopped at local organic stores and got a can of tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, rapini (broccoli rabe), mushrooms, etc.
Back home and started with my tomato sauce...

Made my dough, rolled it out while heating the oven. Prepped the toppings and arranged them on the dough. Baked for 10 minutes... and garnished with the shiso leaves!

Pizza can be enjoyed without tomato sauce.

This one is topped with young garlic, shiitake and eryngii mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and vegan mozzarella. Yum!
