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 […]

Best Vegan Saffron risotto

The Best Saffron Risotto Milanese

  Saffron risotto is an Italian specialty that turns bland white rice into a decadent rich creamy dish. I can still close my eyes and remember eating this dish at my parent’s friend hotel in Italy when I was a little girl. The golden hue from the saffron, the rich creaminess of the rice was […]

Mouth watering buttered shelled peas

Gourmet Sauteed Sugar Peas

One of the best way to prepare sugar peas when they are in season and abundant is to add as little as possible to retain their delicate flavor. In Asia, peas are used whole and quickly pan-fried to preserve the color and crispyness. In France, we first shell the peas and also remove the inner skin from the pods. This […]

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 […]

So I adapted an old classic French recipe tart made with mostly caramelized onions and incorporated the mushrooms. The result was […]

Yummy Grilled Vegetable Paninis

Most countries have a version of a grilled sandwich. France calls it Croque-monsieur, Americans call it grilled sandwich, Italians, grilled paninis, you get the idea. My mom makes the best grilled sandwich Italian style so I decided to create a vegan version. To get the full effect, you will need sliced vegan meat (Tofurkey smoke […]

New potatoes and leeks

New Potatoes and Leeks Stir-fry

Nature is such a wonderful thing we often take for granted. Last fall, I discovered some wrinkled potatoes that I had completely forgotten about and as a result had sprouted in the back of my pantry. I proceeded by cutting them into small pieces, each with a sprout and planted them in my garden covering […]

Creamy Mushroom Fettucini

Wild Mushroom Fettucini with Wilted Spinach Salad

Ok, so I may have spoken too fast. Summer hasn’t arrived yet. It looks like the seasons have shifted a whole month forward. April showers are now May showers and the temperatures aren’t exactly summer like these days. Apparently with the various large earthquakes and tsunamis, the earth’s axis has shifted more than one degree. […]
