i looooove lettuce wraps. in my pre-veg days, when i was a wee baby, we used to get this with duck at restaurants for special occasions. it’s pretty easy to put together, and there’s a nice social aspect to eating them. make each wrap as you are ready to eat them, with the sauce, filling and lettuce all out on the table for people to take for themselves. if you’re hungry, i would make this as an accompaniment to […]

eggplant / meals / mushrooms / okra

so first of all: OKRA. oh man it is the best. because i love it so much i put it on everything and it surprisingly works kind of all the time. okra pizza sounds weird but try it, because you’ll probably like it. this is a good low-effort pizza. it takes a while because of the roasting, but it’s not active cooking time, it’s lazy time. i used this roasting time to have a chocolate raspberry smoothie […]
