Sesame Soba Noodles with Collard Greens and Tempeh Croutons

Sesame soba noodles with collard greens recipe

I’m a complete noodle fanatic, but a bowl of pasta with tomato sauce doesn’t quite do the trick for me. For me, an ideal noodle dish is one in which veggies have at least equal billing. This Asian-flavored dish of soba noodles and calcium-rich collard greens is flavored with a triple dose of sesame (another great source of calcium): tahini, seeds, and oil. Another bonus — soba noodles made purely of buckwheat are gluten free. If that’s not of concern to you, other long noodles — udon or even whole wheat spaghetti — can be substituted. Recipe by Nava Atlas, from Living the Farm Sanctuary Life by Gene Baur with Gene Stone, © 2015 by Gene Baur.

Polenta Pizza Crust

Polenta Pizza Crust recipe by Dreena Burton

While I love homemade pizza, I look for shortcuts to replace a dough-based crust— like this polenta crust. Though it’s gluten-free, you need not follow a GF diet to enjoy this change-of-pace pizza crust. Recipe from from Plant-Powered Families: Over 100 Kid-Tested, Whole-Foods Vegan Recipes by Dreena Burton, BenBella Books © 2015, reprinted by permission.

Baconut (Vegan Coconut “Bacon”)

Baconut - vegan coconut bacon by Dreena Burton

Large flakes of unsweetened coconut are the perfect canvas to infuse the smoky-sweet flavor associated with bacon. Coconut has natural fat and the flakes absorb seasoning well. After a low-heat bake, the flakes are crunchy, savory, salty, smoky, and just a touch sweet. Try them on your next sandwich and take your lunch to a new level of deliciousness!
