Stir-fry with yakisoba noodles

Quick Yakisoba Noodles with tofu

Yakisoba noodles are great for a quick meal and stir-fries. You can find them in most grocery stores in the refrigerated section, usually near the tofu and other vegetarian products. How convenient, since this recipe calls for tofu!  I would stay away from the packaged sauce that often comes with dry yakisoba noodles because it is full […]

Vegan Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

Vegan Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

Why would a vegan, ever care to create a vegan Philly cheese steak sandwich? Even though I have had my fair share of food containing animal parts and by-products while growing up in France, I must confess that I have never tasted a steak sandwich during my carnivorous years in the US. For some reason, it didn’t appeal […]
