I want a simple yet sophisticated menu... but there's a few limitations such as: no oven in my boyfriend's apartment and I'm a vegetarian. Although I don't want to make it into a whole vegetarian thing, I would like to have something to eat other than just salad and also cook something carnivore for him! To make things even harder I live in Venezuela, a third world country where you don't exactly have the biggest variety of vegetables and other goodies — I've never even seen a shiitake mushroom or ready-to-go chicken or beef broth. Help!
There you have it readers. Ylia needs a basic vegetarian and meat-friendly meal that can be cooked on a stove with simple ingredients. What should she make?!
