Avid vegetarian Christina Applegate was in the mood to cook up a storm the other day, and received a little help and inspiration from Candle Cafe.

The “Up All Night” actress shared on Twitter, “Making recipes from Candle Cafe book. If only the Cajun Sandwich was in there! Joy, Bart help a girl out.”

For those who don’t know, Candle Cafe is a vegetarian restaurant in New York City that is dedicated to serving healthy, organic, vegan cuisine. Dishes are made from seasonal, fresh products that have not come in contact with pesticides or chemicals. And of course no animal products are used.

Owners, Bart Potenza and Joy Pierson, also wrote a cookbook based on their restaurant, “The Candle Cafe Cookbook,” which incorporates more than 150 recipes from their vegan eatery.

Applegate, who has been a vegetarian since she was 15, must have had a hankering for their delicious food and started cooking recipes from their book. Unfortunately, as the actress expressed, the only thing missing was the Cajun Sandwich.

Maybe, Applegate can reach them through Twitter to write a third cookbook and include her favorite sandwich.
