A green curry porridge to keep you cozy as the weather changes season. This is a great way to use up winter squash and any herbs you have on hand. Rice and coconut milk form the base, and you get a kiss of spicy from serrano chile.
You have to try this one! Soba noodles are tossed with a fiery ginger-sesame dressing and a generous amount of cucumbers, scallions, and pan-seared tofu. For over twenty years this has been a desert island recipe in our house.
A vegetarian take on the Chinese chicken salad of my youth. Toss shredded lettuces and cabbage, lots of cilantro, green onions, and the protein of your choice with a strong sesame-soy dressing punctuated with the bite of hot mustard. Forever one of my favorite salads.
A vibrant red lentil soup (or stew) that is always hugely popular. A friend turned me onto this Ayurvedic dal recipe from the Esalen Cookbook years ago. Red lentil based, curry-spiced coconut broth with back notes of ginger and tomato, with slivered green onions, and a finish of cilantro or kale.
