17 Easy And Delicious Dinner Party Ideas. Crispy Sriracha Honey Lime Tofu Recipe. Tofu: do you love it or hate it? I’m definitely a lover. Sometimes, when I’m prepping up a block, I’ll sneak a bite or two, of cold, unadorned tofu. I’m probably one of the few people in the world who likes to do that, but there’s just something about tofu in it’s pure state that is so incredibly satisfying to me. Soft/silken tofu, block tofu, egg tofu, tofu puffs, dry tofu, there are so many types of tofu in the world and I love them all! If you aren’t a fan of tofu, it’s probably because you haven’t had it prepared correctly. Sure, it sounds like I’m giving tofu some cheesy self-help, love yourself just the way you are advice, but the thing is: it’s true. Seriously though, tofu is one of the most versatile ingredients out there.

Love tofu? Meatless Monday Guest Post: An Avocado A Day | Running on Vegan. Jamaican Jerk Tofu Bowl I asked an old friend and new blogger Rachael Hartley, author of An Avocado A Day, to write a guest post for Meatless Monday. Her posts are always extremely informative, which makes sense considering she’s a licensed dietician, and she has some of the most amazing recipes (and pictures) on her blog.

I love how she takes a humorous approach to nutrition and how she simplifies different theories on dietetics. Many, if not all, of her posts include recipes – and a lot of the time they are vegan or can be made vegan. I don’t know about you all, but I really wish I was in her kitchen when she made the dish featured in this post – it looks phenomenal! As a registered dietitian, I encourage each of my clients to move towards a more plant-centered diet.

Most of my clients equate vegan to bland and boring. A quick glance into my kitchen and it’s pretty obvious I have a thing for spices and herbs.

Southern fixins (or is it fixuns) and vegan don't typically go together. The thing is, when my husband is having a busy week at work - I like to cheer him up with comfort food. When he comes in the door to a big meal of his favourites he has the face of a child on Christmas morning. This past Lent, our family chose to eliminate any food from animals from our diet - we ate like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, which is... vegan.

By Karielyn, on February 11th, 2014 This Vegetable Rigatoni with Creamy Cauliflower Sauce started out as an experiment for a vegan macaroni and “cheese” dish for my boys, but ended up so much better than I had expected.

It’s not a plain cauliflower sauce but a creamy cauliflower sauce with a “cheesy” flavor. I used this recipe for a basic cauliflower sauce as inspiration to start with, then added extra nutritional yeast to give it the “cheesy” flavor, a little tumeric and some cashews and zucchini. And it can be made in a matter of minutes with a Vitamix. At the last minute, I decided to add the peas and carrots for color and extra veggies and guess what? They loved it! So I would say this is a good vegan recipe to get some extra veggies (cauliflower, peas, carrots and zucchini) on your kids plate! 5 Fast Facts About Cauliflower: 1 cup contains 9.1% DV of potassium1 cup contains 85.9% of vitamin C1 cup contains 8.5% DV of fiberexcellent anti-oxidantcontains anti-inflammatory benefits Directions. Kerala Style Vegetable Stew | kurryleaves. Beurre blanc. Origin[edit] The chef Clémence Lefeuvre (née Clémence Prau) invented beurre blanc, apparently by accident, some time around the beginning of the 20th century.

She served this sauce at her restaurant "La Buvette de la Marine" in the hamlet of "La Chebuette" in the village of Saint-Julien-de-Concelles situated on the banks of the Loire River a few kilometers upstream from Nantes.[2] Legend holds that she intended to prepare a béarnaise sauce to go with pike but forgot to add the tarragon and egg yolks. Some sources claim that this invention occurred while she worked as a cook for the Marquis de Goulaine at Château de Goulaine.[3] Aristide Briand, long-time Prime Minister of France and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, said at her death in 1932 that her death "was a bit like national mourning".[2] Preparation[edit] A good beurre blanc is rich and buttery, with a neutral flavor that responds well to other seasonings and flavorings, thereby lending itself to the addition of herbs and spices.

Chef Marc Vetri - Recipes - Find. Eat. Drink. Let's Make Something Awesome › Charred Brussels Sprouts. Brussels Sprouts are a controversial vegetable. Not just the taste either, the name confuses the hell out of people. So let’s clear something up. It isn’t “brussel sprouts”. It isn’t “brussel’s sprouts”. They are “brussels sprouts”. They are named after the city of Brussels. Please ignore the leg of duck with port-wine-balsamic glaze, it doesn't concern you Brussels sprouts were first domesticated in Belgium around 500 years ago, and are descended from the family of wild cabbages found and eaten for thousands of years all around the Mediterranean.

When my sister and I were little, we spent Wednesday nights at the Honey Creek Country Club with my mom and grandparents.

On those evenings, the club — which was once a shinning jewel in the 70s, but had taken on lackluster patina in the decades since — served a delicious buffet. In an effort to keep up appearances, the dinner featured a butcher dressed in a tall, white, paper hat and matching suit, standing next to various slabs of meat, ready and waiting to cut you a warm slice. They also had a special, glass-covered table filled with different slices of pies and cakes on individual glass plates ripe for the picking. My grandpa, who to this day has always remained very trim, would always go survey the dessert first, this way he could plan out how much room to save for the all the various treats he wished to sample.

Surprisingly, my favorite part of all this food was the salad bar, which took up two full table lengths right at the beginning of the buffet. Prep time: Cook time: Serves: 4. Homemade Wooden Spoon Butter: For Buffing, Not Eating! Mahanandi » 2010 » May. Payala Kura (Purslane) from my Garden Last March, I planted some seeds expecting edible amaranth plants. But then came in abundance, pleasant looking plants with plump leaves and tiny yellow flowers. The leaves in size and shape resembled methi but they are much thicker. I couldn’t identify them for sure, so I called my amma(mom) and described the plant in detail. Amma said, “Indira, you have payala kura.

Last time I had payala kura was at Nandyala, at my mom’s home, almost 15 years ago. Following my mom’s suggestion, I made traditional, Telugu vaari payala kura pappu today.

I'm lucky enough to live in an area where even modest neighborhood cafes get their produce from local farms and change their menus often to reflect whatever their farmers are harvesting that week. I recently had my first taste of sweet summer corn at one such cafe, in a dish that combined chunks of shaved corn with tangy little cherry tomatoes and a creamy cilantro dressing.

Sweet, crunchy and bursting with pure summer flavor, it was so good I knew I had to recreate it. In my kitchen somewhere along the way the combination transformed into a crispy, black-bean-speckled tostada — no complaints here. The tostadas of my youth were massive: giant tortillas fried into bowls that held beans, tomatoes, meat and a mountain of shredded iceberg. The first time I ordered a tostada from a taco truck, I picked up my paper plate and wondered, What is this small, flat thing and how do I eat it? But pile nearly anything onto a small, fried corn tortilla and it can be a tostada. Makes 2 servings. Fresh ground whole wheat.
