Who’s ready to go on summer vacay?! Well, even if you don’t have elaborate plans for summer you can escape into this next issue of EAT IT. The Travel Issue is a collection of content inspired by my travels. You know I travel well and eat all the vegan food I can, so I’ve created exciting recipes born out of the flavors and dishes I’ve sampled worldwide. There are recipes from Portugal, Bali, Greece, and Italy, a What I Ate In Vancouver vlog, and a recap of my son’s birthday where we went to The Gentle Barn Farm Sanctuary in California.
If you want to experience the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of places you’ve never been, dive into these recipes from my travels. I’ve recreated a simple and delightful dessert eaten in Portugal called bolo de bolacha. I’ve brought my fave thing to eat in Bali home just for you. The chef at the villa where I host Live With Purpose Bali was kind enough to share his recipe! It’s called nasi goreng, a traditional fried rice dish. I know you’ll be addicted! My recent trip to Greece was full of savory, spiced, bites and my 7 layer greek dip incorporates all of them. There’s also a greek lemon potato recipe that’s worth the extra bit of effort to make. I’m also sharing a special recipe created just for my recent trip to Italy. It’s a collab with Rose Lee from Cheap Lazy Vegan and this hybrid Asian-Italian dish, baked gochujang rigatoni, was what we made for the culinary experience we hosted.Lauren Toyota
