You won’t fool non-vegans with this, but if you’re used to nutritional yeast “cheese” sauces, you’ll love this soy-free dish.
This is my famous Panang curry recipe with kale, which has a slightly different twist and lots of veggies – resulting in a huge pot of steaming, nutritious joy.
- My Unexpected DiagnosisIt was February 5th, my mother’s birthday and a month before the 20th anniversary of my becoming vegan. I was sitting in a breast surgeon’s office in a paper gown, cradling my biopsied breast and waiting. After about an hour and a half, my surgeon finally appeared, apologizing for keeping me waiting because the results […]
- Two Ways To Make Your Own Soy Free Burmese Style TofuWhen I was too small to remember it happening, a Chinese American family moved in across the street from our tract home in Sacramento, California. Apparently, at the time, they were the only non-white people on the relatively new block. One set of their white next door neighbors were not very happy about this, and […]
