Asparagus Bruschetta

I had a version of this dish while visiting my Grandma in Arizona and I can honestly say it was one of the tastiest things I have ever had. The contrasting textures and flavors are sophisticated and complex but also manage to be rustic and simple. It is a surprisingly easy recipe and could be served as an appetizer or as a meal. If goat cheese just isn't your "cup of tea" use skim ricotta, a thin slice of white cheddar, or shaved parmesan in its place.

BBQ Mushroom Sandwich

When I decided to stop eating meat I made a mental list of the meals I would probably miss the most so I could begin thinking of ways to make them meatless. Among the many dishes my mom makes like pot roast, corned beef, chicken picatta, etc, the pulled pork sandwiches I love so much came to mind. I think this is equally delicious, if not better, than my original recipe containing pork. Plus it is ten times healthier and actually easier. Make it on the weekend and have leftovers for lunch or quick dinners for the rest of the week.
