This “That Good Good Ramen” recipe was developed out of years and years of practice, trying to perfect my at-home ramen game, and then finding the perfect shortcut. One would think that I had burnt myself out on ramen after college, but honestly, I have just gotten better and better at making it.Read More
These spring rolls were simply created as a way to use my new favorite That Good Good Tofu, which, in itself was pretty much created as a way to get more of That Good Good Sauce into my life. Regardless of how they came to be, these Good Good Spring Rolls are a great way to pack a lot of veggies together to eat on the run, or for when you’re just feeling too lazy to use a fork to eat a salad.Read More
If you’ve been hesitant about trying tofu, this is your gateway dish. I can’t decide if I should call these “tacos” or “wraps” or “flatbread sandwiches” because they are pretty much all-of-the-above, and then some. It all starts out with handmade cornmeal flatbread, piled high with a generous serving of sweet and savory tofu “belly”, topped off with crispy pickled jicama, spicy cherry peppers, and a Pollock-eque drizzle of vibrant cilantro lime cream sauce. Folded or rolled, this taco-wrap-sandwich delivers all the food truck gluttony you crave.
I wanted my first recipe of 2019 to be something that was super easy to make; that would be super satisfying, and that would be a good entry point for people who are wanting to learn how to prepare delicious vegan food. This recipe for Vegan Breakfast Burritos is more about techniques than it is about the final product. I wanted to show you how to perfectly roast potatoes, and how to prepare the best tofu scramble, and then to give you some ideas of what you can do with them.
I have a super easy and delicious weeknight recipe for you here, that delivers all of the amazing flavors of Thai takeout, without the hassle or the Postmates premium: Thai Style Vegan Garlic Noodles with Tofu. This dish comes together in no time, and uses just a few sauces and ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
A few (like 10) years ago, my friend Tony and I “summered” in Chicago. We spent the month of July in a sublet that had a box fan (that we purchased) and no air conditioning. Coming from Vegas, we had no idea that such places even existed. The thought of cooking or even eating hot food seemed too much to deal with, so we devised a meal planning strategy. Our idea, you see, was to make cold salads (pasta, macaroni, green… but mostly pasta), and serve those as our side dishes along with a main dish which we cooked in a Crock Pot. I wasn’t vegan at the time, and I did consume more mayonnaise that summer than anyone has the right to, but the point is that we survived a hot summer strategically planning our meals around cold salads.
So, as I was planning this week’s recipe video, I thought about that summer in Chicago. And I thought about how great it was to just have cold dishes in the fridge that could be made in advance, and eaten at any time, without having to heat up the house. I also thought about how much I missed green bean casserole… Inspired by that summer, and my favorite comfort food hot dishes, I came up this recipe.
