Plant Based Fun Eating Out
Some friends wonder how I eat out at restaurants since I eat plant based foods. Last night was a fun example. The menu offered penne pasta with broccoli-rabe and shrimp. I asked our server if I could have that dish, without the shrimp. He said he would have to ask the chef. I thought that was odd, since I was asking for a subtraction on the dish. But, he went back to the kitchen and returned and said, not a problem. I threw out the comment that the chef could throw in extra veggies of his choice. The dish came out delicious! Lots of greens and garlic. I love when my pasta dish is more green than beige, and this one hit the mark. Sorry, I ate it all...no photo.
