Cooking for Luv - Soba Noodle Cake Recipe

15 Apr Soba Noodle Cakes with Pickled Watermelon Radishes, Sriracha Cashews, and Miso Snap Peas

Soba Noodle Cakes with Pickled Watermelon Radishes, Sriracha Cashews, and Miso Snap Peas Yield: 4 Cakes Cook Time: 15 Minutes (Plus 1 Hour for Noodle Setting, 25 minutes for pickling) I luv Soba bowls, so I often tend to make a huge batch of noodles at the beginning of the week to keep on hand in the fridge. One time, the day after overcooking a batch and storing them to deal with later, I found that my Sobas had formed a solid mass in the bowl I had left them in. A flash of inspiration to cut the noodles into cakes ensued, and this delicious dish was born! The crunchy-soft-spicy-salty-tangy components of this dish make my mouth happy, and it’s really pretty to boot.Ingredients 1 9.5 Ounce Package of Soba Noodles (I like the Hakubaku brand for its price point on organic, but others are fine too!) 3 teaspoons Kosher Salt 2 Cups Sugar Snap Peas 2...

13 Mar Vegan Posole Stew

Inspired by a traditional meaty Mexican Pozole stew, this healthier vegan version develops a ton of flavor in a quick cook time. The hominy has an addicting flavor and texture, the canned beans cut the cooking and prep time, the Soyrizo brings the spice that the chilies and meat usually provide in the traditional version, and the toppings create an awesome crunch. One of my favorite comfort foods, this stew is an easy and hearty one pot meal to warm your heart and soul.[yumprint-recipe id='74']...

Cooking for Luv - Papas Tacos, Cumin Roasted Carrots, and Beer Braised Black Beans

21 Feb Papas Tacos with Mole, Roasted Cumin Carrots, & Beer Braised Black Beans for Two

An elegant and lighter take on a Mexican spread, this vegetarian meal is perfect when you're craving something south of the border without all the grease. And although it looks fancy, it is quite simple and can be made in under an hour.  I like to use Sprouted Corn Tortillas to add some extra nutrition to the meal, but any variety works. You can easily make this Vegan by leaving out the cheese and substituting Earth Balance or EVOO for the butter. Enjoy! xo- StephanieMenu Main: Papas Tacos with Mole, Avocado, and Quick Pickled OnionsSides: Roasted Tri-Color Carrots with Cumin Seeds and Beer Braised Black Beans with Cilantro and Garlic Roasted Tri-Color Carrots with Cumin Seeds Yield: Serves 2Time: 25 Minutes Ingredients1 Bunch of Tri-Colored Carrots, quartered lengthwise then cut in half1 Tablespoon of Cumin Seeds¼ Red Onion, Sliced into ¼ inch strips2 Tablespoons of EVOO1 Tablespoon of Morton’s Kosher Salt DirectionsPreheat Oven to 425Toss all ingredients...
