      Thank you coach. I have written for the site when I was living in France. There was some amazing vegan recipes I cooked in France because finding vegan in our stores where I was living was hard. I have been off writing here for a few months and I am in hopes I can share more in the upcoming weeks. Thank you once again and I hope you enjoy these recipes.

    Is the eggplant dip similar to baba ganoush? I love that stuff! The recipe looks awesome, I'll have to give it a try.

      Hi Brittney: First, thank you for reading and commenting on my recipe. To tell you the truth I am not sure it is like baba ganoush. A nice older woman that I became friends with in France cooked this for me one evening. It was amazing and I begged her to tell me how she made it. I have tried different spices and added and taken away from the recipe she gave me. This is my version of her recipe and I hope that you will enjoy this.
