Here's another pretty picture from Natalie: "This rice bowl is my adaptation of the wonderful dishes served at Fresh Restaurants in Toronto. It has a bed of brown rice topped with satay tofu steaks (vegan, purchased at grocery store), avocado, tomatoes, chickpeas and a wedge of lemon. The dressing is Sesame Miso Sauce (also vegan) from the book Fresh at Homeby Ruth Brown and Jennifer Houston, the owner and head chef respectively of the Toronto restaurants.
"If you're ever in Toronto, be sure to check out one of several Fresh restaurants - they're just wonderful. I lived in Canada for three years, and ate at Fresh whenever I could. Now that I'm back home in Australia, I try my best to recreate their beautiful food and juices - thank goodness for cookbooks!"
