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.
If you're looking for a simple potato salad - this isn't it. But this maximalist take is worth making regardless. The details: tender potatoes are loaded with chiles, chopped herbs, garlic & whatever bright, fresh vegetables you have on hand.
This is homemade vegan sushi made with sweet potato fries, seasoned tofu, avocado, kale chips, and a whole grain sushi rice blend. A quick kiss of strong wasabi-spiked soy sauce is my preferred dipping sauce.
There are a few different granola camps. This one falls squarely in the great, everyday, healthy granola category. Midnight black and deeply chocolate-flavored with dark black cocoa and cocoa nibs, this granola is packed with heart-healthy oats and seeds. Naturally sweetened, clumpy, and crunchy, the recipe calls for just a small splash of olive oil, and leverages a secret ingredient to bring it all together.
A perfect one-pot meal. Noodles, tofu, and broccoli boiled in one pot, drained, tossed with splashes of olive oil and ponzu, plus a generous showering of everything bagel seasoning to finish it all off.
This is the recipe I was working on when Sarah Lonsdale came to visit for an interview for Remodelista. Whipped goat cheese is simply combined with flecks of sautéed garlic and green chile resulting in an easy spread that pairs perfectly with a long list of things.
