We debuted a great CD on the show today! I played a new song from talented musician/composer John Gatti’s upcoming CD release entitled; “Destinations.” This engaging, melodic CD consists of songs inspired by some of the many places John and his wife have visited over the years. Today we added “Struttin Around Pine Lakes” to the Jazzy Vegetarian Radio playlist. This track is super Jazzy. We look forward to playing a lot more “John Gatti” music over the next few months. I love this CD! Check it out on iTunes too.

“Vegan Chopped Not “Liver”

by Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian

Makes 6 to 8 servings

3 medium onions, chopped

1 to 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 (15-ounce) can organic sweet peas, drained

3/4 cup chopped walnuts (raw or roasted)

1/4 block (about 4 ounces) non-GMO tofu, cubed

2 tablespoons tomato paste

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Fresh ground pepper (to taste)

Place the chopped onions in a large sauté pan and top with some olive oil. Sauté the onions in the olive oil, over medium heat, until they are very tender and slightly brown in color. Let the mixture cool. Put half of the peas, onions, walnuts, tofu, tomato paste, salt, and pepper into a blender or food processor. Process the dip on low, until it is combined but still chunky, stopping the machine a few times in order to scrape down the container.  Repeat. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Spoon the dip into a colorful serving bowl and chill for at least four hours before serving it with various “dippers,” arranged attractively on the side.

Listen the entire show here! Thanks for listening.

Be Happy, Be Healthy & Be Well,
