Most who strive for a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle inevitably cook for, or entertain friends or family who don’t follow that diet. I don’t cook meat, but found these awesome tasting gluten free salmon patties at Costco, and since then, no other measures up. I always make a salad with the salmon, and add a variety of ingredients to up the nutritional value. This day, I added kale, leeks, pine nuts and these amazing glazed beets. No other dressing was even necessary.
