Mushroom bruschetta

Dinner is probably the most difficult time of the day for us: we usually don’t eat a cooked meal, but go for sushi, salads or other appetizers. Bruschetta is probably one of the favorites – especially since we discovered the small ciabatta breads at Superstore.

Zucchini Pizza

Cashew and garlic mixture.

When my friend sent me this recipe for a vegetarian zucchini pizza, I was skeptical.  One bite later, I was a fan! It’s hard to believe that the combination of zucchini, garlic, onion and cashew-based sauce (no mayo, no cheese, no ketchup!) can be so tasty!
