Hot and Sour Noodles

I made this last night and it came out very well. To make it truly fatfree, you need to leave off the peanuts. (But I was bad and ate the peanuts–they added a lot to it!) I served it with some broccoli, carrots, and cabbage that I steam-fried with garlic and ginger and finished off with a splash of soy sauce. The vegetables were a real hit!

Hearty Macaroni Dinner

This recipe is great because it doesn’t require any ingredients you can’t get at a regular grocery store. Even meat eaters like this one, and it’s very hearty.

Creamy Basil Sauce

My favorite pasta recipe is a creamy basil sauce over any kind of pasta.

Chow Fun Noodles with Tofu

Arrange the noodles on, and garnish with sesame seeds and chinese parsley.

1 pound vegetables — cut for stir-fry (can use frozen vegetables; I like a mixture that includes broccoli and carrots) …

      Six years ago, I was honored to work with Nava Atlas, taking the photos for her book Vegan Holiday Kitchen. It was a gorgeous hard-backed book, and I’m happy to announce it’s just come out in an equally beautiful paperback version, with full-color photographs on heavy, high-quality paper.
