When I think spring, it usually conjures up scents of lemon. The clean, fresh scent is a welcome addition to the beginning of the warm weather season.
And lemon on asparagus is absolutely amazing and is the perfect melding of fruit and vegetable. I baked the asparagus in the oven but it is just as good on the grill. Be careful not to overcook because the vegetable becomes tough and stringy.
I paired with rice noodles cooked with low-fat coconut milk but any rice or noodle work. The asparagus is also great on top of a salad so you may want to double-up the recipe.
Tofu is amazing! However, not by itself. To me, the stuff straight out of the package is somewhat disgusting. It deserves to be baked, fried, broiled, sauteed and blackened.
I love garlic but when cooking with it there is a fine line between getting it crispy and burning it. Make sure to keep the heat at a medium-high temperature and be sure to keep stirring it when cooking.
I had some fresh basil and cilantro that on hand so I decided to toss it in the rice. The result was YUM!
I heart Brussels Sprouts! Growing up I remember my mom anxiously awaiting spring’s harvest. These yummy small cabbages can be served savory or sweet.
I used maple syrup in the initial cooking phase to achieve the underlying sweetness in the finished dish. The creaminess comes from Go Veggie’s Vegan Chive and Garlic Cream Cheese.
