  1. I made the chimi-churri and it WAS delicious (mint, parsley, arugala, salt, red pepper, oil, roasted garlic ). I had it for lunch yesterday. Thank you. The leftovers are in my fridge for another lunch. I also bought the book that Maurissa was raving about and it is delightful – Eating from the Ground Up. I was really inspired by Smitten Kitchen’s new book and this book has the same sort of vegetable based recipes. I have a list of recipes I want to cook from it. I highly recommend it. My daughter and her family are all vegan so vegetable centric allows me to cook things up for them. I am totally with Joy that the future of plant based eating (which I do believe is the future, but I won’t give up roast chicken, sorry) is vegetable centric and not fake meats. Love your show and thanks for doing it. 🙂
