Thai Drunken Noodles

Here is a healthier take on Pad Kee Mao, or Thai drunken noodles. Swapped the meat for tofu, added some extra veg, and the sauce is outrageously good. It’s not an authentic recipe, but it’s better than the takeout version.

Vegan Spicy Rigatoni Vodka

This creamy, spicy pasta dish is a replica of the Spicy Rigatoni Vodka from Carbone in New York, but this one doesn’t cost $32, and it’s vegan. The Calabrian chilis are a game changer and the soubise method of cooking the onions really enhances their natural sweetness. It’s world-famous for a reason, and absolutely irresistible.

Vegan Protein Bowl with Spicy Cashew Dressing

You can build this bowl with whatever ingredients you like… the star is the dressing. Inspired by my favorite from Sweetgreen in Los Angeles, it’s creamy and toasty, with the perfect amount of heat. Also vegan. It’s great in a salad, and just as good with roasted vegetables.

Hawaiian Style Tuna Poké

Poké is everywhere these days, but this combo is how I first tried it in Hawaii, where it’s originally from. There’s nothing better than beautiful, simply sauced and seasoned, fresh fish. You can (of course) add whatever extra toppings you want, but this recipe is perfect as is.

Lobster is the star of this dish. The sweet, delicate flavor shines through all components– from the lobster cream sauce (made with cashew cream and a homemade stock, using the reserved lobster shells) to each bite of tender lobster meat. The angel hair noodles further elevate this elegant protein, and the result is… heavenly.
