When I first tasted Veggie Lox at a restaurant in Montreal, I fell in love. How could vegetables taste so much like smoked salmon?? When we make that decision to stop eating meat for whatever reason, there are often some tastes that we miss. This was a big one for me. So when I tasted this, I couldn't stop myself from asking the waiter: "What's in there?" "Do you have a cookbook?" Of course what I wanted was the recipe. Unfortunately they were not serving that up on the menu. But I could not get that taste out of my head! I obsessed about it. And after much experimentation in the kitchen, I finally perfected my own Veggie Lox recipe.
Since then I have shared this amazing spread up over and over again at many catering events, parties, and trade shows. And people just can't seem to get enough! This spread was a huge hit at VegFest, 2013. I gave out hundreds of samples and sold out on the first day. And I was asked several times where can I buy this? So I got in touch with one of my favourite health food stores in Ottawa.... Herb and Spice on Bank St. and asked them if they would be interested in selling my Veggie Lox in their shop. I was surprised to hear that one of the managers had been at VegFest and tasted it!
To make a long story short, you can now purchase Zengarry's Veggie Lox at Herb and Spice on Bank St. So what do you do with it when you get it home?? This is the actual topic of this blog post. Here are some ways that you can get creative with my Veggie Lox in YOUR kitchen!
