You'll have a lot to choose from in the upcoming year from this place in terms of food and entertainment. I don't know many spots to dine well but my kitchen is slowly becoming the best eaterie known to taste buds. The menu is always changing yet remains as healthy and vegan as comfort food can be. With so many great vegan recipes out there, there is no excuse to shy away from it. I have tried cooking plants before and every single recipe could stay at the top of my list until my last day on dry land. And this simple dish makes me happy to be alive and hungry - easy to make and tastes great. 

1 package of quinoa or your favorite grain (cook as directed, set aside)
1 package of spinach or your favorite greens (or both)
1 package of cherry tomatoes, halved
thin sliced onion
a few cloves of garlic, sliced
a bundle of basil and whatever other fresh herbs you have around, chopped
olive oil
salt & pepper

How to:
In saute pan, heat generous amounts of olive oil.
Add onions and lightly cook until translucent.
Add garlic, and sauté for a minute or so, add cherry tomatoes and a pinch of salt.
Allow cherry tomatoes to cook, sweating out much of their liquids, stir occasionally. 
Once the tomatoes are soft, add spinach, greens and chopped herbs. 
Allow greens and herbs to cook down for a few minutes. 
Stir, season with salt and pepper. 
Toss with grain of your choice.  

Bon apetite!
