#LunchBreakLIVE with fearless, funny, and fabulously ferocious guest Chef, Donny Moss. The creator of the wildly successful Their Turn animal rights media platform.  Donny is also a dynamo in his Greenwich Village, NYC kitchen, and today he will be whipping up delicious Eggplant Rollatini for us. You will definitely want to know how to make this dish because after watching this video your cravings will be out of control.  Vegan cashew cheese and eggplant, drenched in tomatoes sauce…oh my!  It is sooooo good!



The Vegan Eggplant Rollatini King… And So much More!

Donny Moss is a NYC-based animal rights activist who runs local campaigns and produces videos for TheirTurn.net. Moss made the award-winning film BLINDERS that documents NYC’s controversial horse-drawn carriage trade.  From 2009 – 2013, he led a successful campaign to end the political career of an elected official running for Mayor who blocked animal protection legislation for eight years. In May 2015, he launched a two-year grassroots campaign to compel the NY Blood Center to pay for the care of 66 chimpanzees who the organization abandoned with no food or water on islands in Liberia. That campaign ended in May 2017, when the organization made a $6 million contribution toward lifelong care of the chimps.

Wow.  Donny not only has passion in the kitchen, but he has so much drive to improve the lives of animals, whatever it takes.  He is a major inspiration to many, including myself, and works tirelessly as a full-time animal rights activist.  I am grateful that with his busy schedule he took the time to show us how to make this incredible Eggplant Rollatini.  Let’s see how it turned out.
