Japanese Curry Rice

We generally make vegan curry or chicken curry, but this recipe from Nancy Singleton Hachisu’s “Japan: The Cookbook” called for thinly sliced pork shoulder.

Creamy Ginger Cashew Dip

This is a beautiful vegan dip that could just as easily be served as a sauce over a veggie and rice dish. I roasted a bunch of broccoli and used it as a dip. The ginger is refreshing and the cashew creme is super-smooth.

Coconut oil gives this rice side dish a tropical flavor, and the toasted nori crumbled in adds an umami flavor; combined this rice is pure heaven. No exaggeration. I ate it stand alone for lunch, and also paired it with two fried eggs for breakfast the next day. This recipe […]
