Soba and Spinach Salad

I would like to call your attention to that cute little tree in the column on the right side of the page. The one that says “Super Natural Recipe Search” under it. If you’re trying to eat more whole foods, or if you get some new produce in your [...]

Rice-stuffed Bell Peppers

Some vegetables are just crying out to be stuffed. That little groove in celery was clearly designed by some higher power with peanut butter in mind. I can’t look at mushrooms without thinking how much better they would be flipped upside down, stems removed, and filled with a rich [...]

Green Onion and Sesame Tofu Burgers

I have been thinking about burgers lately. Not beef hamburgers, but about meatless patties. When I was in high school, I practically lived on Gardenburgers and Boca Burgers. Then I matured and realized that I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life eating frozen, packaged food (but [...]

Mu Shu Tofu

Every time I see a recipe now, I have to stop and think for a second about whether or not I can get all the necessary ingredients at my local grocery store, and whether they will be reasonably priced. I just can’t stomach the thought of paying over five [...]

Thai Noodle Salad

I am and have always been a morning person. So when I found out my working hours in Korea would be 3-10 PM, I wasn’t quite sure how I would cope with having to be a functional human after about 7:00 at night. Fortunately, the schedule seems to be [...]

Gimbap, Take One

After eating gimbap at least once a day for the first four days we were here, I knew I had to try and make it myself. I didn’t have too many interesting ingredients for the filling, so I wanted to make a simple roll as a trial run. I [...]

Soba with Spinach and Tofu

While I love pretty much ALL noodles, I think these buckwheat soba noodles are my favorite. I made a simple stir fry flavored with oyster sauce, and tossed it with soba for a quick and healthy dinner. Shopping here has definitely been a big adjustment; I’ll have an idea [...]

Pad See Ew

The couple we stayed with in Edinburgh was kind enough to let me cook them dinner. After 3 months with no kitchen I was dying to cook again, and it seemed fitting to make them Thai food. I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to find all the [...]

Garbanzo-Kale Stir Fry with Tofu and Lemon

Kale is one of those foods I know I should be eating a lot of, but just can’t figure out how to cook with most of the time.  When I saw this recipe on my all-time favorite blog, I knew I had to try it.  This is an incredibly quick [...]

Singapore Noodles

Singapore was the first foreign country I ever visited.  My family was living in Australia, but that didn’t really count as foreign, because as my mom liked to say, it was a perfect mix of California and the UK.   But Singapore, to my 13-year old eyes, was really foreign. [...]
