Vegetable Hakka Noodles – 1 Pot Indo Chinese Noodles

July 12 2017 Vegan Richa 

Vegetable Hakka Noodles – 1 Pot Indo Chinese NoodlesEasy 1 Pot Vegetable Hakka Noodles. Indo Chinese Hakka Noodles with peppers, onions, cabbage, carrots and a simple sauce. Vegan Nutfree Recipe. Can be gluten-free.  Indo Chinese food is a big category of its own in Indian cuisine. There are several dishes that make up the cuisine. The dishes are known for being heavily influenced by chinese dishes and then they are amped up with things like garlic, ginger, green chile, spices and more. These Hakka Noodles are a staple side that goes well with any of the Indo Chinese veggie mains like Manchurian(book 1), or a Chilli Tofu paneer.  To make this into a meal, add some baked tofu or some vegan meat subs marinated in soy sauce + minced ginger+ garlic. I like to make these with peppers, onion, cabbage and any other veggies that I have, and some greens. These noodles are super easy, 1 Pot, peppery and a great light weeknight meal. Continue reading: Vegetable Hakka Noodles – 1 Pot Indo Chinese NoodlesThe post Vegetable Hakka Noodles – 1 Pot Indo Chinese Noodles appeared first on Vegan Richa.

20 Turmeric Recipes Vegan Glutenfree options

20 Turmeric Recipes Vegan Glutenfree options20 Recipes with Turmeric. Turmeric Cauliflower Rice, Turmeric Chocolate Marble Loaf, Golden Iced Tea, Turmeric Miso Soup, Turmeric brussels spouts and more. Vegan Gluten-free Turmeric Recipes. Soy-free options.  Turmeric is one of the common spices used in Indian food. We grew up eating food which had turmeric in most meals. Most Dals, curries, veggie sides have Turmeric added to them in small amounts. Some creamy white sauces, Indo- chinese food or snacks were exceptions.  Fresh turmeric is a bit more bitter than powder and can be an acquired flavor. Dried powdered turmeric root (turmeric powder) is more easily available than fresh turmeric root. Powdered turmeric in larger amounts can also add a bitter profile to the dish. The overall flavor might be pronounced for some, ok or undetectable for many. With the interest in Turmeric recently increasing because of many beneficial properties, I now experiment with Turmeric in other applications other than Indian food as well. Try a few of these to start on your Turmeric adventure. In a Sauce, soup, dals, with cauliflower rice, as Turmeric Lentil Fritters (pic above), in sushi roll, in muffins, cakes, Iced tea and more. Continue reading: 20 Turmeric Recipes Vegan Glutenfree optionsThe post 20 Turmeric Recipes Vegan Glutenfree options appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Penang Laksa

March 13 2017 The Lotus and the Artichoke 

Penang Laksa Incredibly, I’d been in Malaysia for almost two weeks before I got to try Laksa, the legendary noodle soup. Even before the trip, I’d read about the intensely loved, powerful and fiery, somewhat-sour soup in food blogs and food guides to Malaysia. I’d checked out plenty of recipes and seen lots of super tasty photos. Once I got to Malaysia, whenever I asked locals what dishes I had to try, I heard again and again: Laksa! Okay, great, but where? And the answer was: Penang! Penang was hands-down my favorite place to eat on the Malaysia trip. (Singapore was a fairly close second. Penang was just more artsy, soulful, and real). I collected maps with locations of the best street food in Georgetown (Penang) and scoured the web and my travel guides for addresses of must-try vegetarian restaurants. On my second day in town, I had lunch at the vegan restaurant Sushi Kitchen, and met the chef/­­owner, who made a list for me of Must-See places and dishes. That night I went to Luk Yea Yan, a vegetarian Chinese restaurant known for fantastic flavors and inexpensive eats. I ordered up the Laksa soup. Three minutes later my oversized bowl of hot, steaming, bright red soup arrived - with countless ingredients and toppings piled up to the rim. There were at least three kinds of noodles, tofu cubes, soya and seitan chunks, numerous vegetables, about four kinds of fresh herbs - and balanced on top: a soup spoon with a thick, red curry paste on it. I’d read about this… Traditionally Laksa is usually served with a generous spoonful of rempeh - spicy red curry paste for you to stir in to the hot red broth yourself. I knew what to do. I did it. A half dozen flavors immediately exploded in my mouth: tamarind, chili, lime, pineapple, cilantro, mint. This was followed by a second wave of flavors: an army of vegetables, tofu, and seitan slices. I slurped down the noodles and paddled pieces of everything with my chopsticks into my hungry jaws. I had to take a break a few times to catch my breath and cool the spice alarm with generous draws on my lemon iced tea. When I was done, my forehead was light with perspiration and my lips and tongue were tingling and alive. There was never a doubt whatsoever that I would include a vegan recipe for Penang Laksa in my new Malaysia cookbook. Several weeks later (after having tried vegan Laksa soup at least three other times in Malaysia) I was back in my kitchen in Germany and set to work. It took a few attempts to master the recipe, each try better than the last. And then I had it: my own epic Laksa recipe! Since then, I’ve made it probably ten more times, including for several dinner parties large and small, and plenty of times for lunch. It’s best on cold, cloudy days to fire up your mood and open you up! But I’ve also made it lots of other times, even in the summer, well… just because it’s so awesome and is always a dish guests talk about long after the meal. Penang Laksa classic Malaysian noodle soup recipe from The Lotus and the Artichoke – MALAYSIA serves 2 to 3 /­­ time 45 min - 5 oz (150 g) seitan sliced - 3.5 oz (100 g) smoked tofu sliced - 1/­­3 cup (45 g) pineapple chopped - 1 Tbs vegetable oil  - 1 Tbs soy sauce or Vegan Fish Sauce - 7 oz (200 g) udon noodles (cooked) - 2 1/­­2 cups (600 ml) water  - 2/­­3 cup (150 ml) coconut milk  - 1 kefir lime leaf or 1 tsp lime zest  - fresh mint leaves chopped - fresh coriander leaves chopped - fresh thai basil leaves chopped - bean sprouts for garnish laksa spice paste: - 4 candlenuts or 2 Tbs cashews soaked 20 min in hot water, drained - 1 stalk lemongrass chopped - 1/­­2-1 large red chili chopped - 2 cloves garlic chopped - 1 shallot chopped - 3/­­4 in (2 cm) fresh galangal or ginger chopped - 1/­­2 tsp paprika ground (more as desired, for red color) - 1/­­2 tsp fennel seed ground - 1/­­2 tsp coriander ground - 2 tsp coconut sugar or agave syrup  - 3/­­4 tsp sea salt  - 1 tsp tamarind paste (seedless) - 2 Tbs lime juice or lemon juice  - 2 Tbs vegetable oil  - If using dried Udon: Cook, rinse, and drain 3.5 oz (100 g) noodles according to package instructions. - Blend spice paste ingredients in a small food processor until smooth. - Heat 1 Tbs oil a large pot or wok on medium high heat.

Tofu Short Ribs With Gingery Mashed Root Veggies

November 17 2016 Isa Chandra Moskowitz 

Tofu Short Ribs With Gingery Mashed Root Veggies All the licky, succulent flavor of a rib but without the…rib! Smother the sauce all over the gingery root veg mash and its like a winter parade for your taste buds. These ribs make a dazzling presentation as a centerpiece for your spread, so serve them family style on your coolest serving platter. I love to serve it with steamed asparagus, but broccoli or bok choy would be really nice, too. This recipe is from the Chinese New Year chapter of The Superfun Times Vegan Holiday Cookbook, but really, the book was designed to use the recipes year round. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion to have an awesome dinner! And of course you don’t have to stick to the chapter guidelines. Serve ribs on Hannukah if you feel like it. Total. Holiday. Anarchy.

Vegan Egg Drop Soup Recipe

September 28 2016 Vegan Richa 

Vegan Egg Drop Soup RecipeVegan Egg Drop Soup. Eggless Egg drop soup with Jackfruit and Tofu. Soothing Chinese “egg” drop soup. Vegan Gluten-free Recipe. Pin this post for later.  I had my wisdom teeth removed many years back. I had 2 sessions of 2 teeth at a time, one under local and the other under conscious sedation. After both the events, the only food I ate for 5 to 7 days was some kind of soup. Brothy soups, thinned out Dal soups, pasta soups, pureed soups. By the end of the week I would be bugged with them and didn’t touch another soup for the whole month. Anywho, one of the soups that kept me satiated was egg drop soup. Vegan versions of the soup work out well with chopped up tofu, but the texture is not entirely there. I had some jackfruit leftover the other day while testing another recipe, and decided to give that a go. I shredded it in a processor and simmered it in the broth. The slightly chewy and stringy texture worked out amazingly in the soup. Thankfully, I have no more wisdom teeth to be removed, but hey there are always other dental issues, or just days when you want a bowl of hot brothy soup. Make this v-egg drop and let me know how it worked out for you! This egg drop soup has shredded Jackfruit and tofu for the egg. Kala namak adds the eggy flavor.  This soup gets tastier as it sits. A perfect fall comfort bowl to make again and again. Adjust the seasoning to your preference. Add shredded veggies or some corn to make it into a light dinner.  Continue reading: Vegan Egg Drop Soup RecipeThe post Vegan Egg Drop Soup Recipe appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Nasi Goreng

March 23 2017 The Lotus and the Artichoke 

Nasi Goreng I couldn’t even tell you how many times I had Nasi Goreng while I was in Malaysia. It was definitely often. Like, really often. Not only is this traditional vegetable fried rice dish usually totally delicious, it’s also usually easy to find and (with little to no effort) a great vegan option. Pretty much everywhere I went in the five weeks in Malaysia, this dish was on the menu or easy to order at almost any restaurant. Especially out of the big cities and in the countryside - and particularly on the islands and beaches - this is a vegan/­­vegetarian stand-by that is never hard to find. (By the way, based on my travels, this is true for most of Southeast Asia, including Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Myanmar… but the dish is found under other names and with local flavors.) This becomes an almost daily meal, if vegan options are limited. On Pulau Pangkor, there were two food places (more shacks than restaurants) that served fantastic Nasi Goreng and vegetable fried rice. And in Borneo, staying in the Permai rainforest, the local restaurant and the nearby food court had vegetable fried rice, or Nasi Goreng. There were also many breakfast or lunch buffets at hotels and restaurants that had rice dishes like this. Contrarily, when in Penang and Kuala Lumpur I was usually so blown away by other vegan choices that I didn’t eat Nasi Goreng as often. Nasi Goreng’s flavors and textures forge powerful memories for anyone who’s been to Malaysia or Indonesia - or even just a Malaysian or Indonesian restaurant - whether vegan, vegetarian, or neither. Just as with so many classic recipes - from region to region and family to family this dish is made a million different ways. This is mine… inspired by so many excellent meals on my adventures. When I created this recipe for the Malaysia cookbook, I made sure to hit all the best, unique flavors in a good Nasi Goreng: Fresh galangal root (or ginger), lime juice, spicy chili, and a thin, tangy sauce provided by the mix of Shoyu soy sauce, vinegar, and citrus zest. I also round out the savory flavors with some sweetness. Traditionally in Malaysia, this dish would be served with just a bit of chopped vegetables (and way more rice). For my recipe, I’ve got a lot of the good stuff, included the crumbled tofu - which, by the way, replaces scrambled egg - sometimes found in traditional Nasi Goreng. By the way, I have many similar recipes inspired by other travels and other countries and cuisines - including: Cambodian Fried Rice, Mexican Magic Rice, and Vegetable Fried Rice from my World, Mexico, and Sri Lanka vegan cookbooks. After you’ve tried my Nasi Goreng, check out the other recipes and decide which country’s classic fried rice is your favorite. Nasi Goreng traditional vegetable fried rice recipe from The Lotus and the Artichoke – MALAYSIA available in English & German serves 2 to 3 /­­ time 40 min + - 3.5 oz (100 g) firm tofu - 1 cup (190 g) broken jasmine rice or short grain brown rice - 1/­­2 tsp sea salt - 1 2/­­3 cup (400 ml) water - 1 cup (100 g) chinese cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli or bok choy finely chopped - 1 medium (90 g) carrot finely chopped or sliced - 2-3 Tbs oil - 1 tsp sesame oil optional - 3 (50 g) spring onions chopped, separated into white ends and greens - 1 or 2 cloves garlic finely chopped - 1 large red chili finely chopped optional - 1/­­2 in.

Nutty Forbidden Rice, Roasted Beet & Kale Salad

March 20 2017 Meatless Monday 

Forbidden Rice, an ancient grain that was once exclusively eaten by Chinese Emperors, has long been praised for its health and longevity benefits. This recipe features this nutty-flavored rice that is also packed with antioxidants known as anthocyanins. This recipe comes to us from Eve of The Garden of Eating. Serves 4 For the salad: - 1 lb beets -  2/­­3 cup uncooked black rice - 1 1/­­3 cup water -  1/­­2 cup pecans, roughly chopped - 1 bunch kale, washed and dried, ribs removed, chopped or shredded For the dressing: - 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar - 2 teaspoons olive oil - 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard - 1 clove garlic, pressed or minced - 1 teaspoon dried thyme - 2 teaspoons sea salt - Several grinds of black pepper and more to taste   Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse the beets (no need to peel them) and position them on a sheet or two of tinfoil (you want a tight package so they end up kind of steaming in there), drizzle with olive oil and wrap them up well. Roast them for at least an hour and 15 minutes – depending on how large they are, it may take closer to two hours for them to cook all the way through – you can test by removing them and poking with a fork – they’re done when the fork sinks easily all the way into the middle of the largest beet. Remove and let cool until you can handle them without burning yourself. Remove the skins – they should slip off with ease and cut off the top and tail. Cut them into bite-sized chunks and set aside. Add the rice and water to a medium-sized pot with a tight-fitting lid, bring to a boil then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 40 or so minutes. Fluff the rice. While the rice is cooking, make the dressing, mixing all the ingredients together well with a fork or a whisk. If you have a jar with a tight-fitting lid, you can also just cover it and shake well. Place the chopped kale, diced beets and rice in a pretty bowl that’s large enough to mix them all together in comfortably, drizzle the dressing over all and stir well to coat everything. Cover and put in the fridge to “stew” for a while – at least an hour and more is better. Toast the pecans for a few minutes until they’re nicely browned and crunchy. I toast mine on a sheet of recycled tinfoil in the toaster oven at 300 for about 5-6 minutes, shaking once to toast them evenly. When you’re ready to serve, top the salad with the pecans and toss well.   The post Nutty Forbidden Rice, Roasted Beet & Kale Salad appeared first on Meatless Monday.

Special of the Day: Chef Anita Jaisinghani

February 20 2017 Meatless Monday 

Special of the Day: Chef Anita JaisinghaniHouston to NYC - Pondicheri restaurants celebrate the fresh vibrancy of Indian cuisine Anita Jaisinghani works long days. Her restaurants serve Indian-themed casual fare for breakfast and lunch, then transform to more upscale dining at night. She opened her first restaurant in Houston in 2001 - which just celebrated five years of Meatless Monday. Last summer, she added a second Pondicheri in Manhattan. Over her career, Anita earned two nominations for the coveted James Beard Awards and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and TIME Magazine. We sat down with her for some table talk. You’ve said your menu is guided by the principles of Ayurveda. Could you explain?  Ayurveda is a philosophy that’s all about balance, not just in food and flavors, but also in life. For instance, Ayurveda doesn’t say you can’t eat meat, but you should eat it in smaller portions. We surround meat with vegetables and other foods so the meat doesn’t become the center of the plate. With Ayurveda, the food should not only taste good, but make you feel nourished and rejuvenated after. I plan my food that way. I would say guided by Ayurveda because I don’t see the philosophy as hard rules. We’re really trying to examine our own history and heritage and select what we think makes sense for modern life. You also serve a popular Meatless Monday menu each week. What should diners expect? India is the world’s best place to be a vegetarian. It has the highest percentage of vegetarians in the world, which is why the cuisine is so extensive and imaginative. Our Meatless Monday menu is really special and it goes back to my roots. Pondicheri, to me, is such an expression of my heart. And growing up in India, it was a rule in my family that we didn’t eat meat for at least one day a week. Pondicheri also has a Bake Lab and you’re famous for your chocolate chili cookies. How did that come about?  My first restaurant job was as a pastry chef at the legendary Café Annie and I love to bake. We named our bakery the Bake Lab because we are always experimenting. The chili cookies were actually a happy accident. My first cookie ever was a Mrs. Fields chocolate chip cookie at an airport. It was warm, soft and delicious. I do not have a sweet tooth, but I loved that cookie. I began to play with cookies and, after many years of reworks, ended up with an oatmeal cookie that was not cakey and slightly gooey on the inside. One day we were out of walnuts in the Indika kitchen, so we added spiced walnuts to the recipe since that was all we had. And voila! The chocolate chili cookie was born!   Pondicheri’s Mawa Cake You also hold specially themed pop-up dinners. What’s your inspiration? Our Houston location holds six course pop-up dinners that usually feature a different region of India every three months, although we’ve done all kinds. The most recent one was Masala Sichuan, inspired by the Chinese expatriate community in Mumbai. With Indian food, theres such an immense scope that its impossible to run out of inspiration - the tasting menus give our chefs and I the opportunity to explore that scope and incorporate seasonal ingredients.   If youre in Houston or NYC, make sure to stop by Pondicheri and taste the Meatless Monday goodness. For more information, visit their website . And if you cant make it to one of their restaurants, stir up your love of Indian cuisine by making Pondicheris Peanut Noodles recipe at home.

Chilli Tofu – Indian Chilli “Paneer” Recipe

October 12 2016 Vegan Richa 

Chilli Tofu – Indian Chilli “Paneer” RecipeChilli Tofu – Indian Chilli “Paneer” Recipe. Chilli Paneer is an Indo-chinese fusion stir fry served with fusion noodles or fried rice. Crisp Tofu replaces the Paneer cheese in this delicious and quick version. Vegan Gluten-free Nut-free Recipe Chilli Paneer is a popular dish from Indian-chinese cuisine. The cuisine evolved in the Chinese community who lived in Eastern India by adjusting and adding more Indian ingredients to chinese recipes. Indo-chinese is an extensive cuisine with options like Manchurian sauce with cauliflower or veggie balls(in my book), hakka noodles, Sichuan fried rice, hot and sour and manchow soups, chop suey, chow meins and others. These recipes even if they use a common/­­known name, are often different from their US or other country counterparts.  These fusion recipes are flavorful with abundant garlic and ginger, spicy and fun. In the vegetarian options, veggies or paneer make up the bulk of some dishes. There are specific sauces that have evolved for this cuisine like the chili garlic sauce or the vinegary green chili sauce that are often available in Indian stores or online. I make a quick chili ginger vinegar sauce from scratch for this Chilli tofu. The green chile sauce is flavorful and hot to preference (use mild to hot green chilies to preference). Tofu is cubed and crisped, then garlic, and veggies are cooked. The sauce is added and cooked lightly and tofu is tossed back in to coat. Serve this delicious dish with cooked rice or grains or over noodles of choice. Continue reading: Chilli Tofu – Indian Chilli “Paneer” RecipeThe post Chilli Tofu – Indian Chilli “Paneer” Recipe appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Jujube Ginger Tea

September 11 2016 Golubka Kitchen 

Jujube Ginger Tea A friend of mine is from Korea and frequently has a pot of Jujube tea simmering away in her office kitchen. It sends the most enticing and comforting, sweet and spicy aroma around the whole space and creates the warmest atmosphere – I always have a hard time leaving. She hands out a little cup of the tea to all her customers, which is such a thoughtful little detail of her endless hospitality. Everybody loves it. Of course, I asked her for the recipe the very first time I tried the tea and have been making it ever since. Jujube dates are also know as red/­­Chinese/­­Korean/­­Indian dates and are a bit different from the dates we are accustomed to in the Western world. They’re smaller and stouter than regular dates, with deep red skin, and come from a tree belonging to the buckthorn family, thus they’re quite nutritious. Jujube are widely used in Chinese medicine for regulating blood pressure, aiding sleep, digestion and more. This tea is made by Koreans and Chinese alike, with small variations depending on the culture, and takes on many of the health benefits of the jujube. My friend adds cinnamon and ginger to the tea and garnishes it with pine nuts, which is a Korean twist. The result is a subtly sweet, gingery and slightly spicy tea that just smells of happiness. Jujube tea is especially great in the fall and winter, since it’s based on cinnamon and ginger, but I also love to drink it iced, for a more refreshing beverage. Jujubes are not that hard to come by – they are widely available online and in Asian/­­Indian markets, so I encourage you to try out this gem of a drink, I know you will love it.
