Mixed Berry Wine Spritzer

So sad to see one series end but it only means the beginning of a new one. And trust me when I say it’s going to get good this summer. Shall we  reminisce and playback what we made here in our First Annual Gluten-free Vegan “Seafood” Bake? Everyone raise their cold glass of Mixed Berry Wine Spritzer as the slow and teary-eyed music is cued:

King Oyster Mushroom “Scallops”

Vegan “Clam” Chowder

Baked Shiitake “Shrimp”

I felt like we were watching the “Actors We Lost This Year” segment at the Oscars. A heart-felt moment. Moving, really. Speaking of moving…


I need to get myself out of this chair. I’ve been sitting here all morning working and I need to stop. Do you mind I cut this one short? I mean, I’m offering alcohol so I’d like to think I’ve covered my bases here.

  1. I love berries and wine spritzer…these gorgeous meals will pair well with this lovely drink!

  2. Oh yum! I love a wine spritzer, and adding berries is genius! Sort of like a less-sweet sangria.

  3. You’ve never covered your bases here dearest Cara – this spritzer looks just amazing! xo

  4. I just started reading your blog and I love the idea of a vegan “seafood” bake! All of the recipes look wonderful!

    The shiitake mushroom scampi is really clever. I haven’t had shrimp in years and am excited to try your version. I can see that the mushrooms would be a good substitute.

    • You are so sweet Mary Ellen–thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! Let’s plan a vegan seafood bake together :) I just need to buy a big picnic table to house all these people…

    Still here, Well I can eat the berries and my husband will drink the rest, My G.I. track is not happy, so Im still working on my health, just wanted to say hi! And Pinned…

  6. Cara, love love love your stuff. Call me crazy, but isn’t that a plate of “crab cakes” in your picture right underneath the ears of corn? Did I miss that recipe? Or is that yet to come :)

    • Hi Crazy :) Wow, that is something my mom would say. ha. You are actually NOT crazy, you are right! But I decided that the fish sticks I recently created were awfully similar that I chose not to post them. If you want the recipe I would be more than happy to supply you with it :) Thank you for your sweet words! xo

  7. You create the best recipes Cara! Can’t wait to try them all!

    • Dawn, that is such a sweet thing to say–THANK YOU!! I think I should just have a big ol’ dinner party and have everyone over :) Wanna come? hehe

  8. I must say, this seafood bake is absolutely genius and I can’t wait to try your recipes!

    No real weekend plans, but I do have to work. Hopefully, you have some time to sit back and relax!

    • Jennifer, thank you so much for always being so super supportive! I hope you had a great weekend and didn’t work too hard 😉

  9. Gorgeous spritzer! Must try! Pinned

  10. Can we please get together and enjoy all these amazing recipes together? Seriously. Bravo, my dear! Can’t wait to see what’s up next!

    I’ve spent the day with hubby and tomorrow will be heading to my friend’s river house for an overnight gluten-free getaway. It’s only about 24 hours, but it will be awesome. :-)

    Hope you came up with some great plans, Cara! xo,

    • Shirley, I’m serious, if we lived close enough to each other I would so have lunch ready for you!
      I hope you had a beautiful time at the river house–I love the sound of that! xo
