It’s Veggie Week and we have put together the Top 5 Best Vegetarian Dishes by some of the most popular celebrity chefs.
1. Chef Dan Barber’s Cauliflower Steaks with Cauliflower Puree
Dan Barber is THE chef when it comes to sustainable, local, and fresh food. He created Blue Hill and Blue Hill Stone Barns— which is more than just a restaurant, it’s a local food movement. We love his Cauliflower Steaks with Cauliflower Puree Recipe.
2. Chef Bobby Flay’s Kimchee Salad
Bobby might be the grilling guy, but he’s also great with veggies too. He has a recipe with some of the best tangy, sweet, and spicy flavors, The Kimchee Salad. We could eat this plain or as a side dish.
3. Chef Tom Colicchio’s Walnut Pesto and Goat Cheese Dip
Tom’s mastered the art of cooking with veggies at his restaurant Craft in New York City. If you want a quick appetizer sans meat, go for Tom Colicchio’s Walnut Pesto and Goat Cheese Dip. It’s topped with avocado and has a decadence that a crowd can’t resist.
4. Chef Jose Garces’ Veggie Burger
Veggie Burgers get a bad rap. In this case, the master of Latin cooking, Jose Garces, has the flavorful non-meat burger down at his Philly restaurant, Village Whiskey. He uses green lentils and black beans for a hearty burger, and lots of spice. Plus, it’s topped with picked cabbage.
5. Chef Jamie Oliver’s Pea, Mint & Basil Arancini Cakes
Jamie Oliver is a healthy food pro, so we were excited to see his Pea, Mint & Basil Arancini Cakes recipe, which spotlights spring herbs. It’s filling enough to eat for dinner too, and we like it over a bed of greens.
