Delicious Zucchini No-Meat Meatballs

Sometimes I feel a hankering for meatballs, but I don’t want to eat actual meat or even a meat substitute. I just want to eat my pasta topped with something filling, delicious, and veggie-based. I mean, I like a big bowl of pasta topped with sauce and veggies as much as the next guy, but […]

Lahpet Thoke (Burmese Fermented Tea Leaf Salad)

Chinese Mushroom and Bok Choy Stir Fry

Mushrooms are one of the best foods in the world, in my humble opinion. They come in all shapes, sizes and textures and always taste so earthy, meaty and satisfying.
