Congratulations to the 3rd Place Winner of our 2015 Recipe Contest – Genevieve Greco!

Congratulations Genevieve Greco! You are the recipient of this Bella Sun Luci Recipe Contest 3rd Place Prize and the Super Deluxe Bella Sun Luci Ingredients Gift Box that goes with it! Your Cauliflower No-Sotto with Sun Dried Tomato Tahini Cream was not only delicious, but very innovative!This recipe broke into the top three contest winners because of its flavor, texture, nutritional aspect, and because it showcases sun dried tomatoes so well. Bella Sun Luci owner (and basically my co-chef) Mary Mooney said, “This dish NEEDS sun dried tomatoes.

Cauliflower is becoming trendy, but it needs help, and the sun dried tomatoes give it that help in the form of flavor, texture and color”. It is also impressive that this dish is vegan, gluten free, relatively low fat and is EXPLODING WITH FLAVOR. You should be proud of this dish, Genevieve. Only a chef could work such magic!

This recipe was very easy to follow. Not counting salt and pepper, only 7 ingredients are used. It’s a fact that sometimes simple is best and this recipe is proof. Shopping, prep, cooking and serving are all simple, quick and easy. This recipe should be in a magazine! Women’s Health…Bon Appetit…here we come!

Congratulations to Genevieve Greco for this, as we say in the business, “Epic” recipe! It was a pleasure to cook it and eat it, and it is my distinct pleasure to call Genevieve, “Chef”. Thank you Chef Gen! I hope someday we will get to cook together!
