Coconut Broccoli Soup
Coconut Broccoli Soup - June 18, 2014

Fig Leaf Coconut Rice
Fig Leaf Coconut Rice - May 15, 2014

This coconut rice is special thanks to a tip Claudia Schwartz (the lovely, charming proprietress of San Francisco's Bell'occhio) gave me. Simmering the rice grains with a single fig leaf gives the rice a wonderful, unexpected flavor and fragrance. Serve topped with toasted pepitas, dried figs, scallions, and pan-fried tofu.

Green Curry Broth
Green Curry Broth - August 24, 2010

A beautiful, thin green curry broth, fragrant with garlic, lemongrass, and ginger. It gets heat from serrano chiles, and zings of tanginess from fresh lime juice. Cumin and coriander seeds keep things grounded, and a flurry of freshly chopped herbs make the sky open up.

Asparagus Stir-Fry
Asparagus Stir-Fry - April 15, 2009

A favorite stir-fry recipe. Asparagus and tofu form the base, but it has quite a lot going on beyond that. You get a bite of tang from the lime, heat from the red chiles and fresh ginger, mint and basil cool things down, and a touch hoisin sauce gives you just enough sweetness to balance it all out.

Wild Fried Rice
Wild Fried Rice - February 25, 2009
