These “Accidentally Vegan” sandwiches are a cool, chewy, spiced treat that I guarantee you’ll re-consider sharing after your first bite. Eggless Oatmeal cookies nestle a later of non-dairy crème that rivals any “oreo” filling.

My Za'atar Recipe, The "Hot Sauce“ of Spice Mixes; Put it on Everything-HeDoesXrayIDoFood.com

Good on a bagel with cream cheese, great over avocado toast. Tasty stirred into quinoa, magnificent on my Za’atar Chicken with Tahini Sauce.

Cauliflower Ceviche Tostadas; Vegan as h**l and Good Enough for Meat-eaters!

(Vegan) Cauliflower Ceviche Tostadas-HeDoesXrayIDoFood.com

The thinly sliced/shaved cauliflower and Persian cucumbers become sort of “pickled” by a lime juice mixture that softens them to the perfect al dente texture. The ceviche is tangy, balanced out by creamy ripe avocado, and served atop a crispy corn tortilla.
