If you’ve ever rejected the notion that you might enjoy vegan cuisine, a glance at the recipes in Mérida Anderson’s Vegan Secret Supper: Bold & Elegant Menus from a Rogue Kitchen is likely to make you reconsider. Carnivores and vegans alike will find lightly battered smoke-blanched cauliflower with red quinoa tabouli & tahini dressing a tempting combination of tastes and textures. Latin American flavors abound in pipián tortellini with seared asparagus and roasted tomatillo sauce. Luscious desserts include ice creams made with non-dairy coconut milk.

THE WORKS

 

There are all kinds of ways to flatten a piece of meat. From metal and rubber mallets, to the bottom of a bottle or a plate, you can always find something at hand to get the job done. But you’ll surely have more fun doing it with a knuckle-shaped meat pounder that let’s you take out some aggression on dinner. The tiny points, combined with the force behind them, tenderizes while flattening the veal scallops or chicken breasts. In a pinch, they’d probably work for self-defense too.
