Sweet and Spicy Cilantro‐Cucumber Salad

Sweet spiced chili cuke salad

This simple, spicy cucumber salad works well as a side dish, or tossed into a green salad, thrown into a wrap, or added to a falafel or sandwich. The spice level can easily be adjusted depending on the type of peppers you use. The recipe calls for Fresno peppers.

Grilled Citrus Cauliflower “Steaks”

Cauliflower "steaks" recipe

We use the word “steak” quite loosely here, but what an awesome way to announce your veganism to the world, by calling a slice of cauliflower a steak! You can grill this outside on the barbecue or indoors on a grill pan. The recipe also works well if you cut the cauliflower into florets and roast them in a single layer on a sheet pan.

Easy Sesame Green Beans with Tofu

sesame stir-fried green beans with tofu

Fresh green beans are one of my favorite veggies, but they have a frustratingly short season. While they’re on the produce shelves longer than they once were, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re always good — they can be tough and stringy more often than not, if they don’t come straight from your garden or farm market in midsummer. That’s why whole frozen organic green beans are a staple for me. They’re consistently good in stir-fries or salads. more→
