Art: Queso Frito con Tomates y Albahaca by Artist Selva  Solimar
Being a "naturalized Texan" AND vegetarian was frustrating for me in the past. When we would dine out, there were usually, only, one or two choices on the menu. Even though according to Wikipedia, "... vegetarians are often well-catered to in restaurants and shops, especially in Europe and metropolitan cities in North America". *ahem!* I beg to differ from that opinion, on the North American part! *LOL* I have found, over the years, in my quest for collecting vegetarian recipes, that most dishes come from "third world" countries...*no sarcasm intended* And many of those recipes are their native other words, it's what they eat everyday...aaand the main diets consist of, *yep, you heard it* CARBS (remember, six small meals throughout the day)! Hey...I'm originally from Venezuela! :D

Okay, so there's my two cents on the disservice to vegetarians! *heehee* Fortunately, every restaurant and hole-in-the-wall we dined at in Puerto Vallarta, had an exceptional amount of items on their menus that catered to we veges! ;)

This delightful [lacto-ovo] vegetarian dish was one that provided an explosion of flavors in my mouth!

...pan roasted tomato slices layered with rounds of lightly fried goat cheese, topped with basil leaf sprigs...two baby tomatoes balance the toasted buttery sesame seed wafers...then splashes of pesto and a light gentle drizzle of dark chocolate accent the plate! Served with a tall ice cold glass of blackberry tea and a twist of lime! YOWZA, LET'S EAT!!! :)
