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!)

    • Vegan Elote or Mexican-Inspired Corn on the Cob with Hemp-Lime Sauce
      I’m counting down the days (less than three) until my husband D and I drive our daughter to college 796 miles away.

    • The Slow Miracle of My Yoga Practice: Spread Your Feet Like Stars
      Sometimes my yoga mat feels like a magic carpet. It takes me to places beyond space and time, where memories awaken or new insights stir their invisible beginnings to life.
