Singapore-Style Tofu Yellow Curry with Rice Noodles

Singapore-style rice noodles

Characteristic of some Southeast Asian cuisines is the overlapping of Asian and Indian influences. This is true here in this tasty and pleasantly offbeat noodle dish that is seasoned with both soy sauce and curry. Fine Asian rice noodles are now available in a whole grain variety.

Pasta Curry with Cauliflower and Chickpeas

Pasta and cauliflower curry

Pasta and veggie combos are always welcome, no matter what time of year. Though not a traditional combination, I long ago discovered that pasta marries well with curry. With the addition of cauliflower and chickpeas, it’s a tasty Italian/Indian fusion that’s ready in 30 minutes or so. Use a whole-grain or even a gluten-free pasta. This tastes just as good at room temperature as it does warm (or even hot!). Serve with fresh corn during the summer; or any green vegetable for cooler weather meals. Add a big salad and you’re all set. more→

Penne Primavera with Avocado Cashew Cream

Penne Primavera

I like to use penne pasta in this recipe, but any bite-sized pasta will work well. This dish is best if eaten immediately after prepared since the sauce may begin to turn brown if made in advance. Use gluten-free pasta to make this gluten-free. From Nut Butter Universeby Robin Robertson. ©2013 Robin Robertson. Used by permission from Vegan Heritage Press. Photo by Lori Maffei.
