From empanadas to sliders, would you have noticed that these dishes didn’t contain an ounce of meat? On today’s Last Bites, Mario brings up an interesting point that The Chew Crew could have easily done the Veggie-Palooza show without telling the audience the dishes were vegetarian. Even Michael, the notorious carnivore, felt satisfied by these hearty veggie bites.
The Chew Crew reveals their secret when it comes to going meatless: variety is key! Avoid thinking of vegetarian as deprivation. Take a trip to the farmers market and let yourself be inspired by the number of fresh vegetables. Take advantage of fresh produce from your local green market and plant vegetables and herbs in a garden of your own. In fact, Clinton has a surplus of basil from his garden so he’s been turning it into homemade pesto that he can freeze for a taste of summer all year long!
