They say a picture is worth a 1000 words. Without further ado, my plant-based birthday dinner at Heartland restaurant tonight:
Amuse Bouche: Pickled mushroom and chard with a curried mustard sauce on a crouton
First Course: Fingerling potatoes, peas and frisee salad with romesco sauce
Second course: Russet potato gnocchi with spring vegetables
Dessert (not vegan, sorry): Ricotta tart in cannoli shell with poached pear, caramelized hazelnuts and creme anglaise.
If you want to see the vegan dessert (rasberry sorbet with burnt caramel and thyme glass), you're going to have to check out my fiance's blog "Food and Fire." He's also got a delicious recipe for tofu rancheros, so check him out :)
In case you don't speak pictures, this meal was out of this world (delicious.)
