Caravan of Dreams

I love the fact that there are so many vegetarian/vegan friendly restaurants in the neighborhood. Just to name a few, here is a short list; Quantum Leap, Curly's Vegetarian, Angelica Kitchen, Organic Grill, Counter, Pukk, Lan Cafe, and Caravan of Dreams. After a long week of making meals at home, dining out seemed like a great idea.

Dinner took place at Caravan of Dreams, which is located on 6th St. between 1st Ave and Ave A here in the East Village. I ordered the small unchicken caesar deluxe salad for my main dish and could not pass on the berry almond live chocolate cake for dessert. What a nice treat to end the week!

Unchicken Caesar Deluxe-black beans, seitan, croutons, tomatoes, olives, caesar dressing

Fresh Summer Corn and Bean Salad

After a long run today, I came home to this delicious salad. I added fresh herbs and tossed everything in a red wine vinaigrette. Mmmm good.
