Veggie Lo Mein

Veggie Lo Mein recipe

It’s so easy to make vegetable lo mien, a Chinese take-out favorite, at home—and it’s lighter and less heavy on the oil than its restaurant counterpart. Serve this with a simple combo of corn and edamame as shown in the photo; or with a tofu dish. Either way, round out the meal a simple crisp salad.  Recipe from Plant Power: Transform Your Kitchen, Plate, and Life with More Than 150 Fresh and Flavorful Vegan Recipes by Nava Atlas. ©2014, published by HarperOne, reprinted by permission.

Garlicky Greens Pasta with Gomasio

Garlic Greens and Pasta

Garlicky pasta is embellished with heaps of nutrients from greens and gomasio. Gomasio is a condiment used in Japanese cuisine as well as a staple of the macrobiotic diet. It has an earthy, toasty, salty flavor and can be used on almost anything…pasta, rice, popcorn or salads. However, it is more than just added flavor, it provides a plethora of trace minerals essential for health, including thyroid function.  You can even consider gomasio a “remineralizing seasoning.” Recipe and photos contributed by Cristina Cavanaugh, from BeginWithin Nutrition. more→
